Parking Garage Cleaning in Northern Virginia: Spring 2015

Spring has Sprung!  Everyone does an annual Spring Clean of their home and building, did you ever think to do a Spring Clean on your parking garage?  I bet not!  Where do you think all the dirt, debris, salt/sand from the winter months go?  All in your parking garage, then everyone tracks the filth in your office buildings.

Now is the time to clean your parking garage.  We have provided 4 easy steps to help you keep your garage clean – and more importantly your buildings pristine!

 

STEP 1:  Remove Standing Debris

Blower

First thing you must do is sweep or blow your surfaces to remove all the dirt and debris such as salt, sand, trash, leaves, cigarette butts, etc.  One of the most efficient and effective ways to remove standing debris is to use a high powered machine or blower.

 

STEP 2:  Power Sweep

Power sweeping is a preferred method to prep your surfaces before a power scrub and pressure wash take place. With power sweeping, all parking areas, along with entrance and exit areas need to be addressed using top of the line equipment operated by skilled and trained personnel.

 

STEP 3:  Power Scrubbing and Pressure Washing   

Pressure Washing

The final cleaning step before inspection involves power scrubbing and pressure washing to remove dirt, oil, grease and grime from building up on your surfaces. By using the right approach with a trained technician your parking lot and garage surfaces will not only have less harmful dirt and debris, they will also have a lower risk of staining, cracking, and potholes forming.

 

STEP 4:  Routine Cleaning for your Parking Garage Needs

While it is important to clean your parking lot and garage surfaces following our most recent and rough winter season, it is even more imperative to have your surfaces cleaned on a frequent basis.

Depending on size and use of your parking lot and garage surfaces, trash and debris removal should be performed daily, parking lot sweeping quarterly or semiannually and pressure washing or scrubbing semiannually or annually. Also, when contracting out make sure the company you hire provides a thorough cleaning of all areas, including conduits, pipes, light fixtures and columns.
