Commercial Exterior Cleaning

Commercial Exterior Cleaning – Nationwide 

When your building requires commercial exterior cleaning services, you will need to find a reputable exterior cleaning company.

Type of Building

First off, what type of building materials do you require cleaning?

Then, secondly what type of contamination is on the exterior surface which makes it look dirty to you and your visitors?

Method of Cleaning

Once you understand the two questions above, then you can start looking for the right type of commercial exterior cleaning company. Because they will understand what type of equipment and chemicals are required to get you the best results.

Examples are as follows;


The cleaning of buildings these days typically requires the Soft Wash method, which many people use. Because this method is fairly new in the UK and you should find a genuinely competent company to carry out this task.  You can find fully trained and equipped companies here. Soft washing is ideal for organic matter removal from render.


Will likely need to be cleaned by a Doff High Temperature Steam Cleaner. Because Doff equipment have been approved by English Heritage and because they cannot damage the stone façade. Doff is ideal to remove organic matter and man made stains such as paint, graffiti etc. Then, should there be other contaminants such as carbon staining which is usually black in colour. Then it is highly likely you would need to use HF20 to soften it up before applying high temperature steam.


Metal, steel, aluminium, plastisol coated, painted or even powder coated, what methods should be used to clean them? Mostly Soft Washing will be required to clean off the organic matter. Where these surfaces have suffered from UV damage and are powdery to the touch. Then a product specified by architects such as The Purple Rhino 3 Step System will need to be used. This ensures the surfaces are brought back to original colour. Furthermore protected with hydrophobic coatings to prevent further UV degradation from occurring.

Cedar Wood

Cladding is becoming very popular these days on modern apartment buildings and offices. Soft Washing is the very best way to clean off unwanted organic build up.


The Doff steam cleaner often proves to be the perfect tool for eliminating unsightly organic matter.


People often utilise the trusted and well-known pressure washer to blast away dirt and grime from this hard surface material.

Then, consider what type of training does the commercial building cleaning company offer its employees. Because, they must have all the basic training such as WHR (working at Height Regulations) Ladder Training. Manual Handling Training. Asbestos Awareness Training. Safety Harness Training. IPAF, PASMA as well as specialised “how to” courses such as Stonehealth Approved. When Soft Washing they must complete a SoftWash Systems Certified Applicator training course.

Most commercial exterior cleaning companies will provide you with a site survey and a fully written itemised quotation.

Ensure your preferred company has attended a relevant soft wash training course

What our Clients Think

See all testimonials
  • From the first contact with Purple Rhino I was impressed with the service that we received from Darran, for his quick response to our request and professionalism to the end product from his team on site.

    I’m sure we will be working together on future projects.

  • “Purple Rhino first sent us through an informative booklet about Industrial building cleaning in March 2013, I invited them down to survey our six storey building in Crawley, West Sussex known as The Atrium, they agreed to carry out a test sample FREE of charge and without obligation. The test results were extremely positive and it was agreed that the whole building façade and glass restoration service was needed to make the building look presentable once again. The works took them just over three weeks, and they gained access by using the building’s own cradle system and the use of Access Platforms, with minimal disruption to our staff and neighbours, the building now looks extremely good as it did when constructed. We will be using Purple Rhino for an agreed scheduled cleaning service to keep the building looking pristine at all times”

    Graeme Ferguson Head of Property

  • I contacted Purple Rhino with a view to cleaning the external K Render panels on our large out of town retail park in Llandudno. The works were completed effectively on time, within budget and the K Render panels were extremely clean upon completion. This is was the first time I have used them but would definitely consider using them again.
