Pressure Wash Municipalities: Parks and Recreation Areas
Your local parks are wonderful places for family and friend to enjoy summer afternoons. Family reunions, birthday parties, graduation parties and other milestone events are celebrated in pavilions. Parents, with kids in tow, head to the playgrounds, while teenagers flock together to ball courts. Organized sport leagues use the fields, bleachers and courts as well. People may walk on a paved trail, and, they may bring their dog. And, mostly everyone who uses the park drives there- therefore, using the parking lot. When people use the park, it is bound to get dirty.
Yes our recreational parks are used heavily, some seasons more than others. Because of this, the recreation departments of our local cities are very busy with the upkeep of the resources their community enjoys. After all, no one would ever go to a dirty park. To make more efficient use of time and manpower, power washing is one way to maintain the cleanliness and safety of recreational facilities.
Power washing is the solution for all cleaning need. Here are some key points of focus for a municipal recreation department:
Picnic tables and benches
Picnic tables and benches may be found in pavilions, but they are also probably dotted throughout the parks. Imagine the amount of behinds that sit on these. And, the things that end up stuck to them? Keeping these clean, perhaps power washing them once or twice a season, will keep them inviting to sit on and eat off.
Pavilions, usually with concrete floors, are the host to many a family function. That said, there are many types of dishes that are served potluck style inside. And, much of that could very well end up on the floor. Not to mention another foe- chewing gum. Normal wear and tear from foot traffic can also result in a dirty floor. Power washing pavilions is a great way to keep them in tip-top shape for every party.
Basketball courts, much like a parking lot, can get filled black spots caused by stomped in chewing gum. Plus, with so many active feet, there could be a build up of things that a normal hose-off couldn’t get rid of.
Bleacher baseball / soccer fields
Bleachers can be a haven for scum buildup. Imagine all the caked up ketchup from hotdog mishaps and dried up ice cream from cone droppings. Cleaning bleacher with a pressure washer once or twice a season can keep these clean, and the home team cheering!
Lots of small children slide down the slide, climb across the monkey bars and spin around on the merry-go-round. But, when you look closer- think of all the germs that could be lurking within the fun zone. Of course, parents should have their kids wash their hands after each use. However, pressure washing the playground equipment once a season is a great way to maintain them. Build up can result in slippery handles, etc. A clean playground is a safe playground.
