I needed a cherry picker to make repairs to a gutter that was too high for ladders. Aaron and Harrison arrived and set up the cherry picker swiftly and safely on a busy road. Their communication was brilliant, letting me know when they were on their way. They were also very hands-on and helped me get the job done. I will happily use them again in the future.

What is Facade Cleaning?

A building’s facade, often the front facing the street, is susceptible to organic growth, dust accumulation, and pollution. In the British climate, damp and warm conditions provide an ideal environment for moss, algae, and other contaminants. Facade cleaning is the process of rejuvenating the exterior, removing these elements, and enhancing the building’s appearance.

Our Expertise

At LBC Clean, we understand the diverse materials that makeup facades, including metal cladding, glass, powder-coated aluminium, render, bricks, and stone. With over 10 years of experience, we have the expertise to clean and restore various surfaces without causing damage.

Choosing the Right Method

Selecting the right cleaning method is crucial to prevent damage to the facade. Our team is committed to using the most suitable techniques for each surface, ensuring effective cleaning without compromising the structure.

Our Cleaning Methods

  • Doff Steam Cleaning System: Ideal for bricks, stone, and render, our Rosette accredited contractors use the Doff machine, which produces superheated water and low pressure to clean various facades without causing damage.

  • Low Pressure Facade Cleaning: We employ soft washing methods, applying cleaning chemicals or biocides using a low-pressure system to eliminate organic growth and maintain a cleaner facade for a longer period.

Why Choose LBC

  • Experienced Professionals: Over a decade of experience in facade cleaning across London.
  • Own Access Equipment: We have in-house cherry pickers for efficient and safe access.

What’s So Special about The DOFF Cleaning Machine?

The DOFF cleaning system is special because it is well built, robust , relatively compact and easy to transport. These factors make it great for working on construction sites. The way it is designed and the combination of the boiler and pressure washing pump used allow the system to generate super high temperatures at the cleaning tip of the lance at a low pressure which makes the cleaning method suitable to clean delegate substrates without causing damage. 

The DOFF system produces up to 150 degrees steam at the tip of the cleaning lance with a restricted pressure of 100 bar and a restricted flow of just 5 litres per minute. Therefore the system produces relatively low amounts of water and pressure when comparing to other hot pressure washing systems with larger pressure washing pumps.

Facade cleaning. What is facade cleaning?

A facade is a buildings exterior. Often reffered to the front of the building where the entrance is that faces onto the street. This can be made up of many different materials including;

 metal cladding,

 glass, 

powder coated aluminum, 

render, 

bricks, stone, etc.

 

In the British climate, the damp and warm conditions are ideal conditions for organic growth to flourish on a facades exterior. This can present itself with a black or green moss or algae structure. Also in cities, dust can form on the buildings exterior. And in high traffic areas, carbon pollution can form on the facade. Another factor to bear in mind is sunlight. Sunlight can fade coloured materials such as powder coated aluminium. This can make it dull in appearance. But this can be reversed and the building restored to its former glory.

How to clean your buildings facade.

Cleaning a buildings’ facade often creates access issues. Here at LBC, as well as having our own access equiptment in house such as cherry pickers, we also use fully qualified and highly experienced abseilers to reach those hard to access areas. 

When cleaning your facade, it is most important that the patina or the structure of the facade is not damaged. By selecting the wrong method for cleaning and cleaning in too harsh a manner, the facade can be damaged. 

This has been seen on bricks, render, and even on metal cladding. That’s why it is important to choose an experienced contractor, when selecting your facade cleaning company.

How to clean a facade.

When cleaning bricks, stone or render, we often choose to use the Doff steam cleaning system. LBC are Rosette accredited contractors, who can be found on the Stonehealth directory. Our team are experienced at using the Doff machine, which is a system that produces superheated water and low pressure, to be able to clean a range of different buildings, patina and facades, without damaging the substrate.

Low pressure facade cleaning.

Facades can be cleaned using soft washing methods, which is where cleaning chemicals or biocides are applied using a low pressure system to the surface of the building. These help to kill organic growth and clean the facade. Here at LBC, to ensure we produce excellent results when we clean facades, we often combine steam cleaning with soft washing. After steam cleaning the patina of the building, we apply a biocide, which is often known or referred to as a fungicidal wash. This not only helps to clean the facade to the maximum standard by killing any remaining spores of organic products that may remain behind after cleaning, (especially in textured surfaces), such as render, but it also clings to the surface in a highly concentrated formulation and lasts on the surface to help keep the exterior surface cleaner for longer.
