Building Pressure Washing | RayAccess, Inc.

Proudly Serving Los Angeles and the Surrounding Areas

Since 2011, the mission of RayAccess is to keep building exteriors clean and healthy with exterior cleaning and building pressure washing services. In our hometown of Los Angeles, ocean air and pollution create a range of building conditions from corrosion and efflorescence to mold growth. Building pressure washing helps fight against these environmental factors as we explore in the section “benefits of exterior building pressure washing” below.

RayAccess also brings unique capabilities including the complete spectrum of access methods to safely reach walls and crevices that most contractors find unreachable. We use suspended scaffolding, hydraulic-powered lifts, and industrial rope access for pressure washing. We access hard-to-reach areas and perform building pressure washing with great quality, safety, and efficiency. 

 As a California state-licensed and fully insured contractor, RayAccess technicians are highly trained in the pressure washing trade. Each member of our crew has completed thousands of hours on challenging jobs. RayAccess is IRATA/SPRAT certified, and our affiliations include the International Window Cleaning Association, and Scaffold & Access Association.

  • Exterior façades

Benefits of Exterior Building Pressure Washing:

Reduce Maintenance Costs:

Water intrusion and corrosion can be detrimental to a building’s structural soundness. If exterior cleaning is neglected moisture gets trapped under the many layers of dirt, debris, and mold that form over time. This buildup is expedited where a combination of sunlight, salty ocean air, and pollutants are commonplace. Maintaining your building with routine preventative maintenance and commercial exterior washing services prevents debris buildup and limits costly building repairs.

Curb Appeal:

In the event you wish to sell, a building’s curb appeal certainly plays a factor with potential buyers. The first thing realtors do when trying to sell a property is making it stand out. Building pressure washing creates the perception of a clean, well-maintained property that may even boost your building’s market value.

Overall Happiness:

Do you want to come to work every day and walk into a stained and dirty building? Probably not. Studies have shown that a clean workplace boosts overall happiness. Why not give your workers a nice clean building to walk into every day.

Health Reasons:

Perhaps most importantly, pressure washing is good for one’s health. If a building is not cleaned properly, bacteria growth can lead to various issues such as poor breathing conditions, allergies, or even viruses. In fact, black mold can cause a building to temporarily shut down due to a hazardous working environment.  

Frequently Asked Questions:

What Building Materials Can and Can’t Be Pressure Washed?

Low to high pressure systems can be used on a number of materials such as concrete, stucco, painted metal, natural stone, and even wood. An experienced building maintenance contractor will apply a range between 500 to 4,000 PSI, and use the appropriate nozzle depending on the building substrate. 

Some building materials should never be pressure washed but instead cleaned with a soft bristled brush, cleaning product, and light rinsing. These include porous materials that absorb water quickly such as vinyl, canvas, limestone, travertine, and some brick masonry.

Can You Damage Concrete by Power Washing?

Absolutely not. Concrete is a heavy and highly durable material made from cement, gravel, sand, and water. Concrete can take power washing with hot water and a pressure of 4,000  PSI. Pressure washing concrete can remove oil and tire mark grease, paint, and dirt. 

How often should a building be power washed?

Generally speaking, building pressure washing should be performed annually but a number of variables help determine the recommended frequency. Factors that call for exterior pressure washing service include spills, outdoor events, proximity to the ocean, exhaust from automobile traffic, pollution, etc.

How much does it cost to pressure wash a building?

Pressure-washing agreements for commercial properties are based on many factors, such as square footage, materials, labor, and additional services such as window cleaning if recommended. The general rate for pressure washing is 25 cents per square foot.
