Many hours are spent on cleaning interior spaces, whether commercial or residential, however, all too often, exterior cleaning is an afterthought. Over time, any building can begin to look dirty, tired and uncared for, however, with regular specialist exterior cleaning services, business premises or private residences can be protected from degradation and kept looking their best.
From a commercial perspective, a clean exterior says a lot about the business inside. A clean building provides an important first impression to visitors and helps create a more pleasant work environment for employees. It’s also important that for any business, keeping costs down is important, and failing to maintain a building can result in expensive repairs. The elements continuously cause wear and tear to a building, whilst carbon emissions can leave exterior facades discoloured.
For residential properties, professional cleaning services help to keep brickwork, patios and driveways looking their best, clearing away moss and algae, as well as allowing more natural light into the home through sparkling clean windows. Whether homeowners are looking to sell up or stay put, exterior residential cleaning services keep the house looking its best.
Why invest in regular exterior cleaning?
Investing in professional cleaning services for your exteriors will not only help your building make a great first impression on visitors, it will also help to prevent the deterioration of exterior surfaces. In the long term, the investment of regular building and grounds cleaning helps to keep wear and tear to a minimum and reduces the need for more abrasive cleaning services, or building repair services in the future, both of which could be very costly.
When it comes to external building cleaning, it’s vital to hire a professional cleaning and maintenance company. As professionals, they not only have extensive experience in cleaning all kinds of commercial and residential buildings, they also have the professional tools and safety training and equipment to get any job done safely and efficiently.
Some of the most important exterior cleaning and maintenance services for maintaining and enhancing your building include:
Cladding and Render Cleaning
Cladding is designed to protect your building’s exterior, so it’s important to ensure it is maintained properly. Commercial cladding cleaning services help to prevent damage from weathering and pollution, as well as making sure the building maintains a smart, uniform appearance.
A professional cleaning company can provide a wide range of cladding cleaning surfaces to suit different surfaces.
Render is another solution for protecting building exteriors. Whilst coloured render is often sold as maintenance free, in reality, regular cleaning is important for keeping the render clean and free of algae and other stains. Professional render cleaning returns a building to its natural state, whilst helping to protect it from wear and tear in the long term.
Using hot water pressure washing systems, professional exterior cleaners can leave exterior walls, forecourts, patios, driveways, walkways and car parks looking as good as new. Using state of the art equipment, pressure washing professionals can also remove graffiti and the most difficult stains without damaging your building or exterior surfaces.
As well as leaving a building looking uncared for, moss, algae and lichen growth on a roof can lead to all kinds of problems, including damaged roof tiles and gutter blockages, both of which could result in serious structure damage if left untreated. Professional roof cleaning is carried out in stages, ensuring that all moss or algae is carefully removed, followed by a biocide wash to help prevent regrowth.
Professional roof cleaners use specialist cleaning and safety equipment to ensure that difficult to access areas can be cleaned safely and efficiently.
Regular gutter cleaning helps to ensure that gutter blockages are prevented thus avoiding a wide range of costly issues including damage to fascia, moss and algae growth, flooding, drips and interior damp. Of course, clean gutters also prevent a building from becoming an eyesore!
Using the latest knowledge and equipment, professional gutter cleaners provide tailored services to suit any industrial, commercial or residential property.
Don’t let commercial window cleaning be an afterthought. Investing in regular exterior window cleaning helps to ensure windows remain spotless, helping protect them from weather damage, and letting in more natural light. To keep window cleaning safe and effective, professional cleaners have replaced ladders with water fed pole systems and access machinery to ensure all windows are easily and safely reached.
Residential Exterior Cleaning
As well as offering services for commercial and industrial buildings, professional exterior cleaners may also offer a wide range of exterior house cleaning services, including pressure washing, gutter cleaning, roof cleaning and window cleaning. All external areas can be reached by professionals, including UPVC surfaces, conservatories, patios, decking, walls and roofs.
