Footpaths, patios, pool decks, and driveways can reduce the entire curb appeal of your home if they are red with mud stains, black with mold and mildew, or covered in rust and oil stains.
Not only does dirty concrete look bad when it is infested with mold and mildew, it can become slippery when wet, which can lead to falls and serious injuries. No one wants to slip and fall onto hard concrete, but this can be particularly devastating for the elderly.
Homeowners are not the only ones that should have their concrete properly cleaned. Restaurants, shopping centers and apartment complexes should all have their concrete cleaned for the same reasons as residential homes.
In addition, the front entrance is where potential customers get a first impression of the establishment. Clean concrete can lead to positive opinions about the business and business owners.
Grease, dirt, chewing gum, coffee, spilled drinks and more substances end up on the sidewalks of commercial businesses, causing customers to have to trek over all of it to get into your place of business.
In addition to having a clean and inviting front entrance, restaurants should keep their dumpster area cleaned. Used cooking grease and oil when left to accumulate on the concrete around the dumpsters is an open invitation for insects and rodents.
