Exterior Building Cleaning Services, External Facade Cleaning and Specialist After Builders Cleans in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Across the UK

Cleaning a building’s exterior facade is one of the easiest ways to increase its value. Prospective buyers are much more likely to invest (and spend more) on a building that doesn’t look like it needs a lot of cleaning done, and grimy or dirty buildings are much more difficult to sell. Think of it like this: if you’re preparing a house for prospective new owners you’ll hoover the inside and make it look nice. Do the same outside, too.

This is even more important if the facade is especially nice or historical. Any kind of sculpture, painting or points of interest should look their best. This is where our services come in. building cleaning and after builders cleans are important work and should be done well, so we look into the best methods of removing any stains, unwanted paint or plants. This may include the use of chemicals (see above) or different tools and methods.

To start, the building cleaner will need to identify the materials used on the external building facade. If it’s a variety, different methods will need to be employed so no damage is done to other materials. They will then need to use them as is appropriate to get rid of the dirt, plants and pollution- which may also require different types of cleaner. It’s worth getting a facade cleaner to check out the building in advance so they can get the right supplies and find the best methods.

Stone, concrete, cladding, brick or render, we have the experience and expertise to provide you with the solutions and information you need to clean, restore, repair, paint and pro-actively maintain your building façade. Methods of cleaning are adjusted to suit the façade soiling type and severity; we continuously adjust working practices to retain the integrity of the façade.

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.

We specialise in the following façade maintenance services for modern commercial buildings:

  • Façade cleaning and restoration: Super-heated Steam, Nebulus and poultice cleaning
  • Building cleaning and restoration for historic and modern facades
  • Specialist access solutions: Abseiling, cradles, tower hoist, MEWPS, and scaffolding

  • Corrosion inhibitors
  • External building painting and decoration
  • Roof leak detection and integrity testing

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, steam cleaning methods to restore, preserve and maintain soiled building façades and exteriors on old and modern buildings through-out the UK. We sensitively remove 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.

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 effectively or pro-actively inspected, to understand and build value around façade cleaning action plans or maintenance required in the future to maintain it.

We love restoring, cleaning building façade and bring them back to life, breathing new life into the building skin. Contact us for an initial consultation and discover how we can help on your future project.
