Making sure your cladding in a good condition is crucial for the long-term health of the building, and for your business. A shabby appearance is unwelcoming and will give an impression of a company that may even be struggling. It could also end up costing more as repairing and replacing damaged areas is a bigger job than carrying out routine maintenance.
The Real Cleaning Company offers a full range of cladding cleaning services, including cladding restoration. We can ensure that your premises always look clean and welcoming. If you have left it too long since your last overhaul, this might be the time to consider the benefits of restoring your building to its original condition.
The nature of the work can vary depending on the material used to make the cladding. For example, metal cladding may suffer more as a result of poor weather conditions than plastic cladding if not well maintained. It can become particularly expensive if the neglect means that parts need to be replaced. We can also work on aluminium, steel and glass, all of which require a different approach.
Cladding can fade if the building is exposed to the elements. Strong winds, heavy rain and lengthy periods in the sun can all lead to paintwork or structures losing their original strong colours. We can address that situation and carry out work that will bring out the sharpness that has been lost.
Our staff are fully trained in the most effective techniques and are equipped with the best tools for the job. They also liaise with clients to ensure the work is carried out with the minimum of disruption and in a way that maximise their safety, as well as that of anyone else who is in the area when the job is being done.
Who might benefit from routine cladding cleaning?
- Owners who want to reduce long-term maintenance costs
- Landlords looking for a tenant
- Tenants with dilapidation orders at the end of their lease
How long does it take to clean cladding on a high-rise building?
The time taken to carry out cladding cleaning thoroughly and efficiently will depend on several factors.
The tools required vary according to the height of the building. If the cladding can be reached from ground level, it will be a straightforward case of using water-fed poles to ensure a gleaming finish within a few hours.
Higher buildings will call for specialist equipment. Our staff are fully trained in various access solutions. These include access platforms, scaffolding, cradle systems, cherry-pickers or abseiling down the side of the building.
If we need to use any of these techniques, it may take longer given the safety implications and the equipment involved. We will tell you before we start how long the work will take and we will complete the job within the agreed timescale.
Our aim is to minimise the disruption to you, your staff and your business. We can do the job out of hours if this is more convenient.
How can I protect cladding from UV rays?
UV rays from the sun can be particularly damaging for cladding. Heat can dry out paintwork and cause it to crack and flake. If it peels off, the cladding will be unsightly, but more importantly, more likely to suffer long-term damage.
You can avoid this by applying a protective coating. We can advise on your options and recommend which system is best for your building.
