Building Chemical Cleaners and Facade Cleaning Chemicals for Stone, Brick, Concrete, Render and Cladding in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Across the UK

Chemical building cleaning is where you clean the outside of a building using chemicals. To do this, building chemical cleaners will come and inspect the building to determine the type of damage and look at the original materials used in the building so they can identify the correct type of chemicals to use to prevent accidental erosion or damage. Good chemical facade cleaners will also try to avoid using harmful or polluting chemicals.

Let’s start at the base layer. Buildings are often made of many different materials, including stone, plastic, glass and metal. These are combined in many different areas for practical or aesthetic reasons. For example, windows are usually made of glass with a wooden or metal frame that fits into the brickwork. These may have all been exposed to the same thing that needs to be removed, but the chemical that’s required will change. A window cleaner or glass polish should work on the window itself, but be completely unsuitable for the wooden frame. Elaborate facades are often made with even more different types of materials, and because they’re designed to look impressive or beautiful will require more maintenance. Next, let’s move to the outer layer of the building. Many are covered in paint or cladding, which can, over time be destroyed or damaged. Finding the correct way to clean, repair and maintain these is worth doing, as it’s the most noticeable when it’s damaged. Finally, consider the dirt itself. Buildings are exposed to different chemicals and phenomena every day, and how they react will depend on their materials and location. Smoke, carbon, pollution and traffic film are much more likely to occur in cities or near busy roads, and organic matter such as lichen and ivy are more common in rural areas. Finding the right solution will depend on the damage present in each individual building. Some layers of general grime may come out with a power hose and elbow grease, but it’s best to consider other options too.
