Keeping your cladding clean is especially important for a variety of reasons. It helps to provide that all-important good first impression. Keeping cladding clean also helps to protect your building from dirt, pollution, and corrosion from the weather. Although cladding is an investment, it is a popular choice of building protection for many in the industry.  

In this blog post, we explain why it is important to look after your building’s cladding. 

First, let us explore the reasons why cladding is so popular within our industry. 

 

Protection: 

Businesses use cladding around the exterior of their buildings for several reasons. The primary reason is that it helps to protect it from various weather conditions, pollution, and environmental changes.  

 

Appearance: 

Did you know that almost 40% of British buildings incorporate cladding in the design? It is a tried and tested way to make ugly buildings look better – which is necessary for our industry where factories and big warehouses are the norm. 

 

Limited maintenance: 

Most cladding needs minimal maintenance and only needs to be professionally cleaned every now and then. This is dependent on the material of course, but most of them only need to be cleaned a few times a year.  

 

Understand your cladding for the correct maintenance  

Some cleaning chemicals can react and corrode certain cladding materials, so it is important you know what your cladding is made from before instructing a professional cleaner. We do not advise attempting to clean your cladding yourself.
