Façade cleaning and building restoration will often take place whilst the building is in full use, programmes adjusted to meet onsite and tenant’s requirements or delivered through the night where required. Due to the type of buildings we clean, their height, shape and size, we design and implement building cleaning, façade repair or external building painting solutions, which use a variety of building access methods such as temporary cradles, façade hoist, scaffolding and abseiling methods, cleaning, repairing, stabilising and painting building facades constructed of concrete, brick, cladding, render or stone building facades.

Modern buildings are constructed with a wide variety of materials which need specialist façade care, cleaning and maintenance, each material needs a different solution to enhance its life-span. Often constructed with little or no clearly defined façade access and maintenance plan, beautifully designed and intelligently engineered building facades are often inaccessible, leaving materials to weather and decay. This in return leaves little hope to be effectivity or pro-actively inspect, understand, build value around façade cleaning action plans or maintenance required in the future to maintain it.
As modern architecture pushes the boundaries of material design and performance, the need to take greater care of the building fabric increases. We use hot water cleaning, low pressure cleaning, doff and steam cleaning methods to restore, preserve and maintain soiled building façades and exteriors on old, modern and new buildings through-out the UK. We only sensitively clean external buildings, removing staining such as carbon, traffic film, effluence staining, leeched salts, organic matter, environmental pollution and paint from your stone, concrete, brick, rendered or cladded building façade.
