Windows Pressure Washing

Pressure Washing Windows to Keep a Clear View

Isn’t it such a nice feeling when your windows and sparkling and shiny? After a long, dry winter here in southwest Florida, dust and particles can accumulate on the outside of your home. This includes your home’s windows, which provides the view to the outside world. Keep the view clear by having them pressure washed on an annual basis.

In addition to cleaning the windows, be sure to pay attention to any sliding glass doors. These doors tend to get a lot of use since they are normally located on the back of the home, leading out to a pool deck or lanai. Normal wear and tear can make these a mess.

Here are some reasons to hire a company to pressure wash windows for you:

  1. Save time by having a professional company do the work for you. It is well worth the cost to have well-trained pressure washers take care of this task.
  1. They can spot problems with the windows and report them to you. If caulk is loose or if they notice damage, these types of issues can be reported to you. Then, you can take the appropriate steps to fixing the problems. Professional pressure washers know how to identify potential issues, which is priceless when it comes to home maintenance.
  1. Professional pressure washers have the appropriate equipment to complete the job. They have ladders, power washers, the correct cleaning solutions, and tele-scoping wands for hard to reach areas. If you did this on your own, you would need to buy, or rent, all of these items. To save you the trouble of sourcing all these materials, a window washing company like Benitez and Hudgins already have everything in stock and ready to go! They not only knock the grime off of your windows, their cleaning solutions include products that get rid of mold and mildew.

The beginning of summer is a great time to get your windows pressure washed. Not only will you take pride in the cleanliness of your home’s appearance, but you can enjoy the gorgeous sun rays that will shine through your sparkling clean windows.

Table in Restaurant

A Clean Restaurant = Returning Customers

Have you ever been to a restaurant that looked dingy and dirty from the moment you walk up? If it looks like that on the outside, can you imagine what the kitchen must be like?

Most diners would turn away from a filthy looking exterior of a restaurant. And it makes sense why they would do so. When eating in a bar or restaurant, people want to make sure that their food is safe to consume. If the outside is dirty, then they automatically think that the kitchen is unsanitary. There is a direct correlation between the outward appearance of a restaurant and the assumptions made about the interior. If you want your customers to enjoy the latest dish that you have concocted, then please keep the outside of your restaurant clean. Otherwise they might just drive on by and not even bother stopping in. Cleanliness has a huge impact on the overall customer experience. If you want new, and importantly repeat, customers then maintain a clean and tidy restaurant. This includes the outside which is the first thing that customers see.

Here are some simple tips to maintaining a clean exterior:

  • Pick up trash in the parking lot regularly.
  • Maintain grassy areas by weeding, mowing and trimming.
  • Plant flowers in front of your restaurant. Add some large potted plants to the entrance.
  • Schedule a regular pressure washing of the exterior. This should include the siding, awnings, windows, and sidewalks. If you own a stand-alone building, then schedule a roof power washing. You’ll be happy that you did.
  • Sweep the sidewalk at the entrance to your establishment daily.

Since the exterior of your restaurant is the face of your business, it is very important to keep it clear of debris and junk. Take pride in the appearance and that will keep your customers coming back as well as gaining new customers. Know that word of mouth is an incredibly great way to increase business. With social media these days, a good review can go viral instantly! This is true for a bad review as well.

Benitez and Hudgins Pressure Washing Services offer affordable rates to blast away the dirt and grime from the front of your restaurant. Don’t wait until a bad review is posted online from an unhappy customer. Call us to schedule a pressure washing at 239-201-7807 or request a quote online. Servicing Estero, Naples, Ft.

Playground friends

Keep your Neighborhood Playground Clean!

Summer is almost here, which means there is more time for you to take the kids to your neighborhood playground. We all want our kids to play in the summer months by enjoying the slides, swings, and monkey bars at the playground. But, did you know that playground equipment is a breeding ground for many types of bacteria and mold?

According to the International Journal of Environmental Health Research, 44 percent of children’s playground equipment has high levels of feces, blood, urine, sweat and saliva. Who wants their child playing in that environment? Keep in mind that animals such as birds defecate on this equipment as well, leaving it contaminated. Also, here in southwest Florida, the humidity is high year-round which is the perfect environment for harmful mold and algae.

So, how do you take care of your neighborhood playground? Or even the playset that you have in your backyard? Proper cleaning and sanitation of these areas will ensure that your child can play without the risk of getting sick. Hiring a pressure washing company such as Benitez and Hudgins Pressure Washing Service is the solution. They are professional cleaners that will blast away all of the germs and mold. They will make sure that the equipment is not only clean, but sanitized by using chemicals that kill mold, mildew, and harmful bacteria.

If you would like your neighborhood playground equipment cleaned and sanitized, contact your local city parks office. Ask about their time frame of cleaning the playground equipment and suggest it happens at the beginning of the summer. This will ensure a thorough cleaning which will keep your kids safe from bacteria and mold while they play. Benitez and Hudgins is a leader in pressure washing in the southwest Florida area.
