The Advantages of Commercial Pressure Washing

By Blog

Commercial Pressure Washing

Your building’s exterior is your customer’s first impression of you. Because it’s exposed to the weather elements, it can lead to a dirt build-up. However, professional commercial pressure-washing is a great way to maintain your building’s appearance.

At CleanCare Hygiene Limited, this month’s blog looks at the advantages of commercial pressure washing. For more information, call us in Leeds on 01274 949112.

Improves Safety & Hygiene of your Building

If dirt and other pollutants have accumulated outside the building, it will eventually impact the air quality inside. This can trigger allergies in your employees. Therefore, a regular pressure washing service can promote better hygiene.

In addition to this, algae and mould can grow on your walkway. This can result in a slick, slippery surface. Regular pressure washing will eliminate the risk of slipping.

Boosts Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is an important factor. The cleaner your building is, the more it stands out. When you allow a build-up of dirt on your structure, it will not only look filthy, but old.

Pressure washing can make the oldest of buildings look brand new.

Reduces Maintenance

The dirtier your building is, the more likely it will lead to decomposition and damage. Without regular cleaning, contaminants will become impossible to remove.

Commercial pressure washing will save you money in the long run.

Healthier Working Environment

Regular pressure washing will lead to a healthier environment for both employees and customers. They will both enjoy the benefits of a cleaner building. Customers will feel more at ease, whereas employees will be happier and healthier.

In addition to this, it will boost employee productivity and increase business revenue.

The Importance of Gutter Cleaning

By Blog

Gutter Cleaning

Keeping on top of your gutter health is an essential part of home maintenance. Regular inspections, repairs and upkeep will ensure that your property is completely weathertight from the outside, preventing damage to the inside.

In this month’s blog at CleanCare Hygiene Limited looks at the importance of gutter cleaning. For more details, call us in Bradford on 01274 949 112.

Reduces Pests

Clogged gutters often attract nesting birds, rodents and bugs. These all carry germs and diseases. By removing leaves and debris, it will discourage birds and pests from making your gutters their home.

Extends Your Roof’s Lifespan

Another reason why gutter cleaning is so important is because it extends the lifespan of your roof. During the winter, a clogged gutter will trap ice, adding weight and stress to your roof.

Furthermore, your clogged gutter will not drain water as it should. So, when the water freezes, it will move your shingles apart, giving space for leaks. Having a well-maintained gutter helps water and ice flow from your roof, eliminating the excess weight and risk of pooling.

Boosts Kerb Appeal

Dirty and clogged gutters are an eyesore. Whether you are planning to sell your home or not, clean gutters can boost your kerb appeal and shows that your home is well-looked after.

How Often Should You Clean Your Gutters?

Cleaning your gutters are best done at the end of autumn or beginning of spring. If you last cleaned them over a year ago, you should do it almost immediately.

In the autumn, your gutters will quickly get dirty from falling leaves and twigs. Moreover, how often they need cleaning depends on where you live.

Stops Water Damage

When your gutter overflows, your exterior walls become damp. Over time, the water can soak into the foundations or through to your interior and cause damp patches.

This can also lead to health problems. Therefore, it is important you ensure your gutters are in the best condition.

The Benefits of Power Washing

Benefits Of Power Washing

The benefits of power washing the walls, patio, driveway and more on your property include increasing curb appeal and future saleability.

In this month’s blog at CleanCare we look at the benefits of power washing your home. Call us in Bradford on 01274 949112 for more details.

What is Power Washing?

Power washing is a great way to clean a wide range of surfaces at your property, including:

  • Exterior Walls
  • Driveways
  • Paving
  • Patios
  • Decking

This method of cleaning surfaces is quick, efficient and versatile. However, all projects are different and require unique solutions, so a cleaning plan is tailored to your individual specifications.

Save Time and Money

Power washing your home’s exterior walls, driveway, patio and more can save you time and money in the future. If dirt, mould and weeds are not cleaned off the surfaces, they can damage your property, so removing them reduces the need for expensive repairs or replacements.

When the render or brickwork of your home begins to look dull and less inviting than it used to, you might consider painting over it. Before you spend time and money on this solution, hiring professions to power wash the walls can brighten them up quickly and efficiently.

Power washing is also a great way to prepare exterior walls for painting. It will remove all the dirt, mould and more so the finished results look as good as possible.

Increase Curb Appeal & Saleability

Making your home look more attractive allows you to have pride in the aesthetics of the property. You can return from work or sit out in the garden and enjoy how clean the patio, driveway and exterior walls are due to being power washed.

If you are planning to sell your home in the future, the aesthetics of the exterior can be just as important as the interior. Making sure the driveway and outer walls are clean will attract buyers and increase its saleability.

Reasons for Roof Cleaning

By Blog

Roof Cleaning

Keeping your roof in good condition is essential as it protects your property from the elements. Because of this, there are many reasons for roof cleaning.

In this week’s blog at CleanCare we are looking at the reasons for roof cleaning and how professionals can keep your home safe from all kinds of weather. For more information, call the team on 01274 949112.

Protect Your Property

Having your roof cleaned and checked by professionals will help to prevent damage from occurring. Some of the problems that can arise if roofs are not cleaned include:

  • Interior Damp & Mould
  • Sagging Ceilings
  • Structural Damage
  • Pests (such as rats & mice)

If moss, lichen and other debris are allowed to grow on your roof, it will cause cracks to form in the tiles and generally weaken the materials that are supposed to protect the building. This will then lead to damp and moisture building up in the property, so you will likely see mould growing on interior walls and ceilings.

Keep Pests Out

Pests such as rats and mice are encouraged to try to access your home and nest when there is a build-up of moss and lichen on the roof. This is because debris will collect in the guttering.

The debris is a great place for pests to stay and find food. When they run out of food or get cold, they will likely attempt to enter through the attic into the warm. These pests are not limited to rats and mice. Insects love the dampness of clogged gutters and will happily stay and breed there if the guttering is not cleared and fixed.

Save Money

By having your roof cleaned, you are saving money on future repairs and even replacements. Cracked and broken tiles will need replacing and the damage caused by water coming in through those gaps could be extensive.

Water damage issues could include peeling wallpaper, loose plaster and even flooding. These problems can be prevented by hiring experts to regularly check and clean your property, keeping your costs to a minimum.

The Benefits of Extractor Deep Cleans

By Blog

Extractor Deep Cleans

Protect your staff, customers and property by regularly cleaning the extractor systems in your commercial kitchen.

In this week’s blog at CleanCare we are looking at the benefits of extractor deep cleans. These include health and fire safety advantages and ensuring your equipment meets current legal requirements.

Health and Sanitation

Extractor deep cleans are essential for keeping your kitchen sanitary and keeping your workforce and customers healthy. If the systems are not cleaned regularly, dirt particles build up in the extractor. They will either be circulated throughout the building into the air people breathe or collect and become sludge.

Dirt particles can also contaminate meal preparation areas and the food. The air is kept clean by changing the filters on a regular basis and deep cleaning the extractor systems. A professional cleaning service often includes a full audit of your system and a certificate of cleanliness and inspection.

Fire Safety

Your extraction system should always be clean and have efficient ventilation in cases of fires or smoke. Sludge that has built up in the system contains dirt and grease, which causes a fire risk.

Grease fires can cause severe damage to a property if the extractor is not working well and there isn’t good ventilation. If a ventilation hood is not cleaned, the sludge can drip and leak onto the surfaces, or it can clog and overheat, risking starting a fire itself.

Cleaning and maintenance will reduce the fire risk and prevent grease from building up in the extraction system. The same also applies to laundry ducts as the fibres collected after washes are highly flammable, so they need to be cleaned regularly.

Follow Current Regulations

In the UK, commercial kitchen owners must ensure that their extractor systems meet the requirements of cleanliness. Chefs and staff should be trained on cleaning the extractors at the end of a workday and professionals must be hired regularly for a deep clean.

If you own a commercial kitchen, you should keep a record of all the maintenance and cleaning done on the system. This information should then be made available to Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) and members of the local authority in the event of an inspection.

A Guide to Kitchen Deep Cleans

By Blog

Commercial Pressure Washing

Kitchen deep cleans help to reduce the spread of food-related illnesses and protect your property from fire hazards.

In this month’s blog at CleanCare we provide a guide to kitchen deep cleans. Contact our team in Bradford on 01274 949112 for more information.

What’s Involved?

  • Oven and Hobs
  • Microwave
  • Fridges and Freezers
  • Extractor Systems
  • Dishwasher
  • Storage Areas
  • Walls, Ceilings and Floors

Grease builds up on all items in a kitchen. It can be difficult to remove effectively without high-quality chemicals, especially in commercial sites, such as restaurants or takeaways, where you are preparing and cooking food for much of the day.

The Benefits of Deep Cleaning

  • Increase Hygiene
  • Reduce the Spread of Illnesses
  • Comply With Health Regulations
  • Keep Pests Away
  • Protect Your Property From Fire Risks

Pests such as mice, rats and insects are attracted to decomposing food, so ensuring all areas of your premises are cleaned thoroughly is essential. Once these unwanted visitors believe there is sustenance available, it can be challenging to get rid of them.

Safety & Sanitation

Extraction systems remove grease, dust and vapours from your premises, but if they are not thoroughly cleared and washed, your property will be more at risk from severe fire damage. In addition, sludge can build up in the system and drip or leak onto surfaces, or clog causing overheating.

Regular kitchen deep cleans will ensure your premises follows the government’s health and safety regulations. With a high standard of food hygiene, effective ventilation and secure waste disposal, you will have done everything you can to create a safe and sanitary environment.

Professional Oven Cleaning

Let’s be honest, barely anyone cleans the kitchens most used appliance as much as we probably should, and it is a given that keeping your oven clean improves hygiene which is important considering the frequency in which it comes within proximity to the food you eat. But it also improves the efficiency of the appliance, as a cleaner oven takes less time to heat up and cook food promptly, it is recommended to have your oven professionally cleaned every 6-12 months.

This month’s blog at CleanCare Hygiene Limited looks at the advantages of professional oven cleaning. Call us in Bradford today on 01274 949 112.

Save on Energy

An oven in peak condition will take less time to heat up, which in turn takes less of a toll on your energy usage not only saving you money but reducing effects on the environment. As well as saving on running costs, proper maintenance of your appliance will have positive long-term effects regarding its lifespan. Therefore, you will find yourself having to purchase replacements less frequently.

Safety First

Now the hygienic factors of a clean oven are likely the first thing that springs to people’s minds, but there is also health and safety factors that apply to this regardless of whether its an oven used in catering businesses or simply a home oven.

The longer an oven goes without seeing a thorough clean, the more grease builds up dries out and has more grease build up causing layers. This build up is a massive fire hazard and can ignite, potentially causing a fire that can spread, ensuring your oven is professionally cleaned will reduce this build up, and as a result reduce potential hazards.

Tools for the Job

Going professional comes with a guarantee of experience, but it also sees the job in the hands of people with the equipment required for thoroughness. The average DIY clean will see the interior and shelves wiped down, but professionals are able to dissemble and reassemble parts, cleaning out grease and grime build up that won’t be apparent upon any initial look over.

This is not recommended to try at home to prevent injury or avoidable damage to your oven.

Time Saver

Just as is the case with many modern conveniences, hiring professionals to clean your ovens will save you valuable time. The simple fact is, a large majority of people simply won’t have the time to allocate to a task which on the surface may seem rather trivial, but for the cost of safety, efficiency and hygiene, this is something that should not be put by the wayside altogether.
