Springtime is near, and there’s no better time to clean your boat dock or pier! Routine pressure cleanings are the most effective and efficient way to accomplish that. Good waterfront property maintenance should go hand in hand with boat maintenance. It is just as crucial, but often forgotten.
Clean Away Contaminants and Pollutants
Boat docks and piers can become unsightly quickly due to their constant exposure to traffic and environmental elements like water and sun. It is impossible to keep their surfaces clean for long under the relentless bombardment of UV rays, dirt buildup, mud, mildew, mold, spider webs, bird droppings, rust and oil.
Not only do these contaminants and pollutants soil and stain your boat dock or pier, but they also pose a safety hazard and reduce the structure’s expected lifespan. You must remove the grime before it negatively impacts your health or causes an accident. In addition, doing so regularly will ensure the longevity of your water entry platform, keeping it in prime condition for many more years.
How a Dirty Boat Dock or Pier Creates Safety Hazards
All the accumulated substances from people coming and going, in and out of the water, contaminate the structure, making it a health hazard. People can get sick from harmful bacteria or viruses festering in the grime.
In addition, the water leads to mold, mildew and algae growth, which are very slippery when wet. As a result, people can easily slip and fall or trip on a dirty boat dock. Regular cleaning can prevent these issues, reducing liability from illness or injury.
A Clean Boat Dock or Pier Maintains the Value of Your Boat and Property
A clean waterfront property adds to the beauty of the surrounding landscape, your home and your boat. When it is worn out and filthy, it is an eyesore and it lowers the value of your property and boat.
Routine Pressure Cleanings Save You Money in the Long Run
Regular maintenance protects your boat dock or pier’s structural integrity, so you save money by preventing costly repairs and replacements in the future. Cleaning is much cheaper than fixing. Cleaning also increases the structure’s lifespan, so it will be much longer before you have to rebuild it.
