Facade cleaning is the process of making sure the exterior of a building is clear of any dirt, grime, stains, and pollutants. The facade usually refers to the front part of the building where the entrance is located.
Some of the most popular materials used for building facades include glass, and other properties may feature facades made from metals such as stainless steel or aluminium.
There are a number of reasons why a building facade can appear dirty. For example, the weather can take its toll, as can pollutants in the air. This combination can cause a facade to fade in colour, impacting on the building’s overall appearance.
How a facade is cleaned will depend on the material it is made from. The equipment and solutions used will be specific to the type of material so as to ensure no damage occurs during the cleaning process. The building’s location and function may also determine exactly how the facade is cleaned.
