Stubborn Stain

How To Get Rid Of Stubborn Stains In Your Workplace

Stubborn Stain

First impressions count and that applies to the appearance of your building as well as your staff. It’s why stubborn, unsightly stains can be such a problem.

The likes of chewing gum, oil, and graffiti are an eyesore and can drag everything else down.

It’s a dilemma.

Banning chewing gum outright is likely to be a controversial decision. Chewing gum has its benefits. It’s good for your teeth and some studies even suggest it’s good for relieving stress and anxiety.

But it’s NOT good for your commercial premises.

According to Keep Britain Tidy, 95% of the UK’s main shopping streets and 64% of roads and pavements are stained with old chewing gum.

These numbers are staggering.

And it’s a problem because old gum looks ugly and causes an annoyance. It doesn’t biodegrade so it stays there forever. The sticky gum becomes a dust trap, which attracts grime. Worst still, on hot days old gum can melt and stick to people’s shoes.

Graffiti causes a different sort of nuisance. ‘Artists’ see your stairwells and walls as a blank canvas, but as a business owner, it’s not the look you want. Instead, it’s vandalism that you want to be rid of.

Then there’s oil.

Not only can oil leave a stain that’s extremely hard to remove, it can actually weaken the concrete and break it apart.

Oil stains look unsightly and if someone stands in the oil while it’s wet, it can be trodden through your building’s interior.

Now you could argue that all these stains and eyesores are just unavoidable wear and tear.

But we disagree. The truth is there’s plenty you can do to keep your external premises looking almost like new.

Here’s how…

It’s a cliché!

It’s always easier to prevent the need for a clean up in the first place, so make sure litter bins are available. This can remove the excuse that there’s nowhere to throw used gum.

When it comes to graffiti, it’s worth exploring anti-graffiti paint when you next decorate. It’s a powerful deterrent.

Call in the professionals!

If you’re too late for the preventative approach, call in the professionals.

Here at Alpha Power Cleaning, we love a challenging cleaning job. It’s what drives us to constantly hunt down the best equipment and cleaning fluids for all kinds of stubborn stains such as chewing gum, oil, and graffiti.

Take our hot wash system.

It’s a system powered by a water-cooled Mitsubishi, 3-cylinder diesel car engine. It can run all day long! It produces hot water up to 140 degrees, which enables us to produce great results on all cleaning works, including graffiti, chewing gum and even oil removal.

Investing in professional help saves your time and you’ll also get a better job because we have access to industrial grade equipment and a much wider range of cleaning fluids.

And we’re always on the lookout for new innovations.

For example, our system can remove chewing gum in a jiffy. We’re also getting great results with this fluid in all sorts of commercial premises from shopping malls to car parks, to pavements.

We’ve also discovered a cleaning fluid for oil. Suitable for commercial and domestic premises, this fluid is cleaning up stains that would have been impossible previously. Again, check out the before and after pictures below.

It’s tempting to leave tough cleaning jobs for another time.

But cleaning is the type of job that you’re better off staying on top of. Dirt attracts dirt! And unkempt premises don’t inspire staff and visitors to take care of their surroundings.

You don’t have to put up with unsightly stains and blemishes. We’re here to put right what’s wrong!

10 Reasons to clean your company’s car park


When it comes to cleaning your premises, your car park may be way down on your list of priorities. Often overlooked, this crucial business asset can miss out on the love it needs!

So if your car park has been neglected, keep reading. You’ll discover 10 good reasons why this job needs sorting. As you’ll see, there are far more than appearances alone at stake.

  1.  Image and first impressions mean everything

Let’s start with the obvious.

You don’t get another chance to make a first impression. As clichéd as this sounds, how someone feels when they drive into your car park and step out of their car sets the scene for the interaction that follows.

What message does a filthy car park send? There’s always the risk that at a subconscious – even conscious level – your visitors will decide they don’t want to come again even before they set foot in your front door.

What are you losing because your car park lets you down?

  1. Greater respect

Remember how you felt when you first got your new phone. In the beginning, you took great care of it. You were careful where you put it down. You did everything you could to stop it from getting damaged.

Fast-forward to the end of your contract and you don’t care so much. The screen is scratched, it’s no longer the latest model, and you’re too busy thinking about getting your hands on the next one! It’s the same with your car park. As soon as you no longer care about it, no one else will either.

So keep the expectations high with regular cleaning. When it feels like new, it’s more likely to be treated as new.

  1. Get rid of those smells!

Petrol and oil stains are almost inevitable in a well-used garage.

But the accompanying smells don’t have to be a permanent fixture. As well as removing a multitude of sins, a commercial clean can deodorise your car park too. It won’t end up smelling of roses, but at least your visitors won’t feel grimy just because they parked up in your car park.

  1. Get rid of that grime!

When it comes to your car park, it’s not just the surface that gets dirty. Fumes can discolour the ceilings and if you have stairwells, everyday foot traffic will soon grind in the dirt and grime. So for a fresher appearance all around, make sure you clean all those nooks and crannies as well as the obvious parking spaces. Clean the ceilings, stairwells, doors, pillars, metalwork – even the lights. Taking care of every surface is a simple way to reinvigorate this much-used space and prolong its lifespan too.

  1. Get rid of the chewing gum

No one wants to go home with someone else’s gum stuck to the bottom of their shoes. Not only does old chewing gum look disgusting, but it’s sticky and turns into a dust trap.

With the right equipment, the chewing gum can go. You don’t have to settle for anything less.

  1. Make signage readable again

Do visitors struggle to find the lifts or find it hard to locate their car because they don’t know what floor they parked on?

Thanks to fumes and everyday wear and tear, signs can get dirty too. Prevent complaints before you get them by cleaning your signage as well as the car park’s surface.

  1. Eliminate confusion over parking bays

Have stains and dirt made it hard to see the width of parking bays?

There’s nothing worse than confusion in a car park – especially when you’re in a hurry. Visible parking bay lines are essential if people are to park efficiently without causing an obstruction to anyone else.

Leave zero room for error by getting the lines cleaned so they can be seen. Your visitors, staff, and customers will thank you for it.

  1. Less chance of needing a premature resurfacing job

Of course, a commercial clean removes the obvious dirt and grime that builds up. But did you know it also removes oil spills and even carbon monoxide build up?

These are more damaging than you might think. Oil and carbon monoxide can penetrate your car park’s surface and cause permanent damage? Regular cleaning is far cheaper (and a lot less disruptive) than full-on construction work. So what are you waiting for!

  1. Get it tidy for your new tenant

Do you rent out your premises? Keen to maintain the value of your investment and reduce repair and putting good costs? If so, invest in a car park clean. Set the benchmark for the condition in which you expect your premises to be returned and there’s more chance your tenants will stay on the ball.

  1. Get it cleaned without the disruption

A commercial clean needn’t be disruptive. If your car park is super busy during the daytime, enquire about an out of hour’s service. That way, you can get the cleaning done and continue your every day without missing a step.

Is your car park way overdue a clean?

Here at Alpha Power Cleaning, we can clean any car-parking surface – whether that’s tarmac, brick, or concrete – even painted concrete.

Trust us to remove a multitude of sins from graffiti to chewing gum, oil to petrol stains, dirt and mildew build up. With the right equipment and an enthusiastic team, your car park can get the face-lift it needs for you to feel good about clients stepping out of their car.

What Happened in Milton Keynes Doesn’t Need to Stay In Milton Keynes!

Did you know that one of our specialisms is big scale cleaning projects?


Fact is, we’re just as happy tackling large industrial complexes as we are cleaning residential driveways and patio – because we have the equipment to do it all.

Industrial premises can get dirtier than most. Thanks to vehicle fumes and all kinds of manufacturing activity (whether that’s welding, sawing, burning, and grinding), the muck, grime and grease soon build up!

Add in the weather factor and before long gleaming factories looks grimy and gloomy.

When this happens, it’s not just the dirt you’ve got to worry about. When you don’t care about the way your factory looks, this sends a subliminal message to your staff.

If you don’t care, why should they care?

It’s a slippery slope that can make standards fall – unless you take action NOW.

A commercial clean can transform your premises entirely.


With the right equipment, the dirt is history and the building restored to its former glory. Check out the results from a big clean on an industrial estate in Milton Keynes.


Telescopic poles used to clean out-of-reach windows. Thanks to hot water, these panes were gleaming in no time.


On a big clean like this, it’s crucial no area is left untouched. So for all those hard-to-reach areas, such as upper floors and roofs, staff use an extendable platform. In this example, soft brushes are combined with a liquid mixture to remove moss without blasting the roof. This system helps prevent damage – especially where tiles are present.

This gentle system is perfect for cleaning solar panels too. Did you know solar panels could lose 25% of their efficiency over time due to muck and grime? That’s another reason to keep your premises clean.


In this picture, ingrained dirt is dissolved and washed away thanks to a jet wash fuelled by hot water. You can see the transformation in front of your own eyes!

Ready to enjoy results like this for your business? If so, get in touch. In this case, what happened in Milton Keynes doesn’t have to stay in Milton Keynes!

Our HQ is in Coventry, but thanks to nationwide coverage, we’re happy to share these cleaning ‘secrets’ with other businesses – wherever you’re based in the UK.

Four Excuses That Get You Out Of Doing That Cleaning Job

You can’t live in denial any longer.

The outside of your home is in desperate need of TLC! You’re embarrassed to invite guests onto the patio because it’s covered with moss and weeds. Your decking is looking tired and the windows could do with some attention.

You know thee jobs need doing, but when do you have the time?

You work hard during the week so the last thing you want to do with your time off is slave away. But don’t feel guilty for procrastinating.

The truth is that it’s better if you don’t do the work yourself. So if you’re looking for an excuse to call in the professionals to tackle a job you’ll hate, here are four.

You can thank us later!

1. You don’t have the equipment

While you can buy domestic cleaning equipment, you have to spend a decent chunk of money to get tools that will deliver results you’re happy with.

Go cheap and you’ll spend much longer than required and you won’t be satisfied with the final outcome.

Hire a commercial cleaning company and you’ll benefit from industrial-grade equipment. More powerful and more effective, you can expect results like these.





N.B. Those photos were taken from the same spot just a few hours apart.

2. Your water isn’t hot enough

Did you know that we always use hot water for exterior cleans?

The reason for this is because hot water cleans significantly better than cold. It dissolves more dirt (rather than simply moving it around) and therefore reduces the need for harmful chemicals.

Hot water also dries quicker too – meaning you can get back to normal far quicker.

So don’t clean yourself. Use water out of your tap and you’ll break your back before you can do a job as good as our machines can!

3. Your time is too precious

You might save some cash if you DIY your exterior cleaning, but before you make this decision, ask yourself how much your time is worth?

We’ll get the job done much faster than you can. We clean day in, day out. It will be the same for the thing you do most often. You get in the zone and the groove. You know how to work efficiently. You know the little tweaks that shave off time without compromising quality.

If you only clean now and again, it will take you time to get in your flow. You’ll probably get bored too! (Especially if you’ve chosen a hot day and you’re secretly running through all the places you’d rather be in your head).

4. You won’t be happy

There’s nothing worse than slogging away for hours on end only to see disappointing results. Was it worth getting hot, sweaty, wet, and dirty for that!

Why don’t your efforts look as good as those before and after photos you see in magazines (or in our emails!)

Hot or Cold Water? Which Is Best For Cleaning Your Commercial Premises?

When you’re getting prices to clean your premises, always check if the quotes include hot or cold water.

It will make a BIG difference to the results.

Here are FOUR reasons why you should also opt for hot.

1. A deeper clean

External dirt can be stubborn – especially when there’s congealed fat and oil or an overgrowth of mould or algae. Cold water will simply smear the dirt around (you wouldn’t wash dishes in cold water, would you?) whereas hot water will dislodge it completely leaving you with a much better clean.

Hot water can tackle also the most stubborn, encrusted residue including oil, soot residue, and chewing gum.

And when it comes to bacterial growth, only steam can remove it. And if you raise the temperature above boiling point, this can ensure slower bacterial regrowth in the future too.

So if you want your premises left sparkling clean and hygienic, you’ll find hot water performs best.

2. More efficient

The hot water used by commercial cleaners can easily exceed 100°C.

Molecules have more energy and move faster the hotter the water becomes. It’s why hot water can soften and loosen congealed dirt more easily at higher temperatures. In comparison, cold water relies on the pressure itself to dislodge dirt. This takes longer and there’s also the chance that stubborn dirt (especially oil and grease) just won’t shift.

But that’s not all… a hot wash will dry quicker too, which means you can get back to using your premises as normal.

3. Less environmental impact

As high temperature cleaning is more efficient, it’s possible to reduce the amount of detergent used. In turn, this can be better for the environment as well as cut costs.

4. Perfect for heavy-duty usage

Premises such as petrol stations, factories, car parks, airports, and other heavy-duty locations are likely to accumulate stubborn dirt due to their high traffic and usage.

A cold water clean is unlikely to remove the build up of dirt, but a hot wash will. So for best results, ensure you check your commercial cleaning has the industrial-grade equipment needed to turn the temperature up.

One choice only

We take pride in our high standards. We love seeing the transformation that a really good clean can make to premises. Sometimes a building encrusted in dirt can look almost new.

That’s why we only use hot water at Alpha Power Cleaning. It’s the only way to get the results that our clients deserve.



So if you want your premises cleaned with hot water, give us a call.

Using the latest jet wash techniques we can clean anything – whether that’s fascia, brickwork, block pacing, signage, or windows.

How To Get Your Garden Summer Ready

Thanks to the recent heat wave, we’ve all been out and about enjoying the good weather.

Maybe it’s the first time this year you’ve sat on your decking or patio and surveyed your garden.

It’s all too easy to neglect your outdoor spaces.

When you’re hibernating over the winter, your garden can get neglected and if the weather isn’t kind, you rarely venture outside!

But when you do, you want to be able to enjoy your garden to the full.

You want to be able to sit out and enjoy your surroundings – not cringe at the grubby patio paving or the grimy decking.

And not only is this unsightly, but poorly maintained surfaces can present a slip hazard too.

The good news is that it doesn’t take too long to get your outdoor spaces looking spick and span. With the right equipment, you can be enjoying BBQs and eating al fresco – without beating yourself up for the mess!

Here are our top tips:

1. Sweep it up

While trees and shrubs look beautiful, falling leaves can wreak havoc if left unchecked. Remember, dead vegetation will decay into soil and this attracts weeds like a frenzy. Before you know it, your beautifully laid block paving is full of hardy weeds that look unsightly and dislodge the blocks.

You can slow this process down by sweeping away leaves and vegetation before they start to rot. So get in the habit of sweeping up pathways, decking, and paved areas regularly.

Not only will this keep your outdoor areas looking neater, but you’ll cut down on your weed problem too.


2. Keep it short

After slow growth over the winter, grass starts growing with a vengeance as soon as the warmer weather hits. Left untamed your lawn soon becomes a hotbed of weeds, but keep the lawn neatly mowed and you’ll reap the benefits.

Who else wants to sit, sunbathe, or play on a bed of lush green?

3. Keep it clean

A hot water jet wash can quickly remove moss, grime, and ground in dirt from your outdoor seating areas.

Hot water is always a better choice – for THREE key reasons:

  • A deeper clean – hot water removes the stubborn dirt that cold water can’t touch
  • A more efficient clean – hot water cleans and dries quicker than a cold clean
  • Less environmental impact – hot water reduces the need for harsh chemicals


Remember, the longer you leave it between cleans the more the risk of damage increases. You spent a lot of money (or a lot of time) creating your outdoor seating space, so protect your investment. Cleaning will make a big difference.

4. Keep it clear

Summer is a good time to check your guttering and downpipes too. With spring blooms following a winter of falling leaves, there’s a chance your home’s drainage system may have some blockages.

Blockages can damage your home as well as causing unsightly overflow onto your outdoor areas. So take the opportunity of dry weather to clear out your drains. We recommend you call in the experts for this so you don’t have to balance on a ladder. And because we have rod-mounted cameras, we’re able to look deep into the downpipes and remove the things that aren’t visible.

Get BBQ ready

There’s nothing better than retiring to your garden after a busy day at work. Chilling with a glass of something while enjoying the warm weather is a great way to relax and recuperate.

So don’t put a dampener on your summer by compromising with unsightly areas.

Instead, get a quote to have your decking, patio, block paving (and any other outdoor surface) cleaned with a hot wash. Remember to get your guttering cleaned and cleared at the same time.

These simple acts of maintenance will not only prolong the life of your home, but they’ll ensure your home gives you more pleasure too.

Spring into action – your outdoor cleaning checklist for the new season

Winter may be cold, icy, and wet.

But on the plus side, there are fewer leaves and slower vegetation growth – good news if you have outdoor spaces that you need to keep looking spick and span.

So right now you may be feeling on top of your paved areas, guttering, and stairwells.

But don’t get too comfortable because spring is just around the corner!

So before the leaves return and weeds appear in their abundance, it’s time to get your head around the tasks you need to take on.

Remember, the more preventative action you take now, the easier it will be to stay on top of the areas you want to keep under control.

1. Have a thorough sweep up

It’s well worth starting out the season with the way you intend to carry on.

So grab a leaf blower and work all over your outdoor spaces to remove any fallen vegetation. As organic matter decomposes it creates soil, which promotes the growth of more greenery.

By removing the leaf litter quickly, you reduce the opportunities for weeds to spring up in the places you don’t want them.

2. Check for access

Have certain parts of your grounds become overgrown?

Are there trees or shrubs that need cutting back to create easier access for customers and staff?

If so, now is a good time to sort out the landscaping work. If you’re quick, you may be able to take action before birds start nesting. That way any action you take will be less disruptive to your local wildlife.

3. Clear your guttering

Thanks to the winter rainwater, your guttering has been working overtime.

So if you didn’t get around to cleaning and clearing your building’s drainage system in the autumn, now would be a good time to do so. Remember, your guttering ensures excess water is diverted away from your building. This is an essential protective measure to minimise and avoid damp damage.

Thanks to modern equipment, it’s easier than ever to ensure your gutters are nice and clear.

We have camera-mounted rods, which we can use to get up close and ensure there’s no unwanted vegetation taking root.

4. Graffiti removal

Have your outdoor spaces been used as a canvas for local ‘artists’?

The good news is you don’t have to be stuck with artwork that isn’t to your taste. Thanks to our high-grade industrial cleaning equipment, we can make light work of graffiti – wherever it’s located.

We can remove chewing gum too.

So if your car park is looking unsightly thanks to gum accumulation, now’s the time to get that sorted too.

5. Gleaming windows

With the weather improving, there’s more incentive to look outside.

But who wants to peer through grimy windows? Enlist the help of a professional cleaner and your windows will soon be clear and bright.

It’s a small job that can make a huge difference not only to your building’s appearance, but to how your staff and customers feel about your premises too.

6. Stay on top of your jobs

Cleaning is the job that is never, ever done.

As a result of the elements and the every day use of your building, cleaning work will always be required.

It’s probably a job that takes up a fair chunk of your time too. Even if you don’t do it yourself you have to find the time to get it done – either in-house or through a cleaning company.

We appreciate your time – so we’d like to give some of it back.

With a monthly cleaning plan, you don’t have to think about what needs cleaning on a week-by-week basis. You don’t need to phone around organising cleaners to fit you into their schedule.

Instead, we’ll create one plan that takes care of everything – for one easy monthly payment.

It’s the easiest way to stay on top of your cleaning so your building’s exterior always looks its best.

How To Choose The Right Cleaning Service for Your Business

First impressions count. It’s why it’s important to maintain the exterior of your business – something a commercial cleaning company can help you do.

From clean windows, to graffiti removal, to keepings pathways clear and safe, the right commercial cleaning company quickly becomes an asset.

But how do you choose the right company for you?

Here are FIVE questions to ask that will help you make up your mind:

  1. Do you use hot or cold water?

This is an unusual, but important question.

That’s because hot water delivers a better clean. Instead of relying on pressure alone, hot water softens and loosens congealed dirt making it easier (and more efficient) to remove stubborn stains.

And because hot water cleans better, you don’t always have to rely on harsh chemicals.

We only use hot water for every clean.

  1. What results do you deliver?

A top-quality, commercial pressure clean can be transformative. In some cases, it can restore an external area to look almost new.

Check out these before and after photos to see some examples.

So when checking out your short-list, ask to see some examples of what results the company has delivered. And listen to the way they describe their work too. You’ll get a much better clean from a results-driven company staffed by caring people who take pride in doing an exceptional job.

  1. Do you offer sample cleans?

If you’ve not worked with a commercial cleaning company before, you may wonder if it’s a worthwhile investment and question whether you could get the same results if you did the work yourself.

The industrial-grade equipment used by well-trained, enthusiastic staff will always do a better job than in-house staff using cheaper equipment. That’s because a commercial company can afford to invest in the tools that get the best possible results. What’s more, a well-trained team is likely to finish the job quicker and to a higher standard.

But if you still feel sceptical, be sure to ask your short-list if they offer sample cleans.

This is a great way to get an idea of the before and after effect that you could expect as well as an insight into the quality of work.

We offer sample cleans to new customers.

  1. What services do you provide?

When it comes to exterior cleaning, there’s a lot more that needs tackling than you may realise – if you want to keep your premises in good condition.

Obvious jobs include window cleaning and graffiti or chewing gum removal, but the following also need to be tackled periodically:

  • Remove mildew and vegetation that turns fascia and soffits green
  • Clear and clean gutters and downpipes to ensure they work effectively
  • Clean and clear external stairwells and walkways to keep them safe
  • Remove vegetation and accumulated dirt from block paving so it doesn’t look old and worn

Your investment will pay off. Keeping the exterior of your property clean can prolong the life of your building and reduce the need for expensive maintenance and repair work.

We offer a full range of external cleaning services.

  1. Do you trust the business to deliver?

You don’t want to waste money and to ensure you invest wisely, ask your short-list of cleaning companies to provide testimonials or references. In addition, get curious about how each company works and find out if customers refer to their friends or use services again.

We have lots of testimonials from happy customers.

Four Areas To Clean In Your Home

You keep on top of the cleaning inside your home, but what about everything that’s outside?

Your home’s exterior has to weather the ‘predictable’ British weather. Over time, your walls will collect mould and green stuff. Gutters can get blocked and windows quickly get murky – reducing your view.

Sure, you could invest in equipment to get your home looking its best, but if you’d prefer to save time and get a much better finish, call in the professionals!

Here’s what you should aim to clean – on a regular basis:

Your windows

Dirty windows make the outside world look smeary, but it’s not the view alone that regular cleaning tackles.

Did you know that dirty windows could suffer from glass degradation over time?

That’s because glass is porous. As a result it collects dirt along with contaminants such as acid rain, sea spray (if you live in coastal areas), and minerals.

So next time your windows are cleaned, remember the elbow grease is promoting their life as well as keeping them sparkling. In fact, regular cleaning could save you a fortune in premature replacement window costs.

Your gutters

Gutters form an essential part of your home’s drainage system. Clean, clear gutters are important because they ensure any rain or water is diverted away from your home – to stop it getting inside.

But remember, gutters and downpipes can get blocked.

Thanks to the amount of water running through them, any organic matter that collects (such as leaves) turns into soil, which in turn promotes vegetation to take root. As you can imagine, this is not good! Anything that compromises the flow of water through your drains will undermine the effectiveness of your guttering.

So make sure you keep your gutters clean and clear at all times. And while you’re at it, it’s well worth cleaning the facia and soffits too.

Block paving

Can you remember how lovely your patio or driveway looked when you first had it laid?

Unfortunately, that pristine, newly laid look doesn’t last forever. Instead, every day grime and dirt collect in between the individual blocks, and vegetation can grow too.

If you’re not careful, your beautiful exterior can quickly become an eyesore – and a big job to clean up.

Fortunately you don’t need to invest in a new driveway if things have got a little wild out side. Instead, a professional clean can restore your paving to look almost new – so you can feel proud of it again.

Walls, fascia, and brickwork

Your walls take the brunt of the weather, and cleaning can help keep your home looking its best. From cleaning away years of grime to removing mortar stains left after building work, a good clean can enhance your home’s curb appeal with ease.

It’s likely your home is your most valuable asset.

Regular cleaning can help protect that asset and give you an increased sense of pride in your property. And like most things, prevention is better than cure. Regular cleaning helps you stay on top of everything and therefore costs you less in the long-term.

Here at Alpha Power Cleaning, we have the equipment, know-how, and enthusiasm needed to carry out external cleaning work at your home.

We only use hot water – because it cleans better and our trained staff use top-quality, commercial-grade equipment.

It’s the reason you’ll get a result that far exceeds anything you can do yourself. When it comes to outside cleaner, DIY is not better! In fact, it’s safer to let us do it for you because you won’t need to balance at the top of a ladder!

So for an efficient, professional, comprehensive clean, give Neil a call on 024 7630 4194.


How To Prepare Your Premises For Winter

With winter around the corner, it’s time to take action to ensure your premises are not only clean, but also safe.

So keep reading to discover the three simple steps you can take over the next few weeks to cut the damage done by colder, wetter weather.

  1. Clean your gutters, drains, and downpipes

Gutters, drains, and downpipes are a key part of your building’s drainage system.

It’s important to keep these clear to ensure excess water can be efficiently drained away – instead of stagnating and seeping inside.

As you know water damage is costly and disruptive so preventative steps now can save a lot of hassle further down the line.

The problem with gutters is they can collect and accumulate debris. For example, leaves and other vegetation can collect inside the gutters. Once decomposed, this organic matter can promote the growth of more plants as well as moss and lichen. As a result, gutters can get blocked, which reduces their efficiency as a drainage system.

We can sort this problem with a thorough clean.

Using cameras mounted onto an extension rod, we can see what’s lurking inside. Then thanks to professional cleaning equipment, we can clear your gutters and downpipes and get them spotlessly clean.

It’s the easiest way to ensure your drainage system is ready to tackle the torrential rain that is associated with a British winter (and summer for that matter!)

  1. Clean your block paving

As autumn turns into winter, there’s a good chance your driveways, pathways, and any patio areas are becoming increasingly covered with fallen leaves and other vegetation.

As long as the weather stays dry, apart from the aesthetics, this isn’t a big problem.

But as the weather changes and the rain, frost, and even snow comes, decomposing vegetation can become a slip hazard – especially as the leaves turn to soil.

What’s more, decomposing leaves provide a perfect environment for moss and lichen to grow, which can make paving even more slippery.

So cut the risk of slip hazards this year and invest in a deep clean.

Using hot water, our pressure washer makes light work of even the most stubborn dirt and stains. What’s more, a deep clean will remove any lichen and moss and return your block paving to almost new.

So not only will your home or premises look nicer, but they’re less likely to be responsible for an at-work accident too.

  1. Clean fire escapes and stairwells

Fallen leaves and other green matter can pose slip hazards on your external stairwells, pathways, parking areas and if you own commercial premises- fire escapes. As a result, it’s CRITICAL you make the time to clear them – to ensure there are safe exits in the event of an emergency.

This is something else you can employ a professional cleaning company to do on your behalf.

Using industrial-grade equipment, we can clean and clear these important areas to ensure they don’t only look nice, but are safe to use as well.

An easier way?

With so many other priorities filling up your to-do list, winterising your business’s premises may not be top of your mind.

It’s one of the reasons why we launched a monthly payment plan cleaning service for both domestic and commercial customers.

Rather than ‘paying as you go’, we’ll create an annual cleaning schedule that’s tailored to your needs. Simply pay a fixed fee every month and we’ll ensure everything is cleaned at an appropriate time interval.

It means you’ll never need to worry about cleaning your gutters, your block paving or anything again because you can rely on us to do it for you.

It could be the easiest way to ensure your building always looks its best.
