What is The Best Way to Clean Cladding? Your Questions Answered

When it comes to maintaining the exterior of your building, cladding cleaning is an integral part. The question we hear often is: What is the best way to clean cladding? Well, you’ve asked, and we’re here to answer. Read on to discover why Soft washing, a technique that uses sodium hypochlorite, greenwash, and final wash, is the superior choice for cladding cleaning.

Why Traditional Methods Fall Short

Before we delve into the nitty-gritty of Soft washing, let’s first discuss the drawbacks of traditional methods. Pressure washing or using long-reach pole window cleaners may seem effective, but the clean you get won’t last. In fact, you’ll find yourself needing another cleaning much sooner than you’d like, typically within a year.

Soft washing: A Longer-lasting Solution

Soft washing is an advanced method of cleaning cladding that employs a unique blend of cleaning agents, specifically sodium hypochlorite, greenwash, and a final wash. This method has a myriad of benefits, not the least of which is a longer-lasting clean. Your cladding will stay clean four to six times longer compared to using pressure washing or long-reach pole window cleaners.

The Science of Sodium Hypochlorite

Sodium hypochlorite acts as a powerful disinfectant that effectively removes organic matter, algae, and other types of debris from your cladding. But it’s not just about immediate results; this chemical also prevents future growth of organic matter, ensuring that your cladding stays cleaner for longer.

The Role of Greenwash and Final Wash

After the initial stage involving sodium hypochlorite, we introduce Greenwash and a Final Wash to the process. These products work together to add an extra layer of cleaning and protection. The final wash particularly aids in creating a shiny finish, enhancing the appearance of your cladding.

Safety and Environmental Concerns

You might be wondering, is this method safe? Absolutely! The Soft washing process is environmentally friendly. The cleaning agents used are biodegradable and are applied at low pressure, making it both effective and safe for your cladding and the surrounding areas.

The Cost Factor

The longer-lasting effect of Soft washing also makes it a cost-effective choice. Since the clean lasts so much longer, you won’t have to invest in cladding cleaning as frequently, saving you money in the long run.

Conclusion: Soft Washing is the Way to Go

To sum it up, Soft washing is the best choice for cladding cleaning if you want a method that is safe, effective, and long-lasting. So the next time you’re due for a cladding cleaning, make sure to ask for Soft washing, and enjoy the beautiful, long-lasting results.

  • Purple Rhino operate a first class and professional cladding & facade cleaning service. My opening dialogue with Darran Smith was concise and prompt and he certainly did not employ the irritating ‘hard sell’ tactics with constant phone calls and emails chasing the contract. Darran left our company to decide in our own time when and how we would have the building’s facade cleaned.
