JM Pressure Washing Advises Property Owners to Plan for Extensive Spring Cleaning

Share Article

Harsh winter will require more thorough cleaning to remove potentially dangerous residue.

JM Pressure Washing, a Manorville-based provider of pressure washing and exterior cleaning needs to the Long Island community, is expecting that the harsh winter that the Northeast is currently experiencing will have residual effects on the exterior or properties if they are not cleaned properly.

With three severe storms hitting the Long Island area since the beginning of 2014, the homes and businesses that make up the Nassau and Suffolk Communities have been battered with snow, sleet and wind all combining to cause sub-zero temperatures. Combine precipitation and sub-zero temperatures and ice is the by-product, covering roads and other passageways with ice. Once all the shoveling is done the ice is treated with liberal applications of rock salt and other ice melting chemicals. While these ice melting solutions do eliminate the ice the residue they leave behind can cause damage to cement and other paving surfaces. Foot traffic through these areas and onto wooden porches and decks around residences help to spread these highly corrosive materials where, over time, they will break down the surfaces they are on causing costly damage.

For commercial properties that are close to roadways or have parking lots and loading docks where trucks and cars pass through in high volume, the slush and snow on the ground that rock salt or sand has been spread on can become airborne. While the splashed snow and slush will met, the sand and rock salt will remain on the surfaces of the buildings with the same corrosive effects that they have on pavements and passageways. Left unchecked and un-cleaned, the corrosive nature of rock salt and other ice melting chemicals can break down the integrity of pavements and parking lots causing unsafe conditions for foot traffic. These unsafe conditions could lead to costly personal injury lawsuits that could have been avoided with proper cleaning of the surfaces that are impacted.

For these reasons, the team at JM Pressure Washing is advising that residential and commercial property owners should prepare to have thorough power washing done of the entire exterior surface around their properties once the spring comes. Professional power washing, using the latest in technology and cleaning solutions, can help to remove the dangerous residues left behind from dealing with winter weather issues. Additionally, a professional power washing company like JM Pressure Washing has the experience and knowledge to understand how invasive these corrosive ice treatments can be and the necessity of cleaning every intricate crack and crevice to ensure that they are completely removed.
