External Building Cleaning

  • For an office building owner or property manager, there are many reasons to hire external building cleaning service regularly to have your office building cleaned professionally.

  • As we know, buildings in Malaysia are constructed from building materials which are easily available locally.

  • Such building materials include timber, stone, brick, plaster, cladding, glass, wood and water proof membranes.

  • These kind of construction materials can be very durable but there are many cases of building materials failing prematurely.

  • Thus, regular cleaning is important to prevent any decay of substrates.

Cause Of Building Deterioration In Malaysia

  • Do you realise that one of the major cause of building deterioration in Malaysia is from carbon emissions?
  • Carbonation exposure to reinforcement structures over long periods can cause widespread cracking of the concrete.
  • If they are not cleaned regularly then the aesthetic appearance and appeal of your building facade can be affected.
  • Even natural elements like rain and wind can continuously affect the external building surfaces.
  • Wind staining cause the walls and corners of high buildings heavily soiled, dirty, or blackened because of prolonged exposure to dust.
  • Rain water stains can be seen wherever there is heavy flow underneath the roof and windows.
  • As the rain passes through windows, it grabs the debris and slams it against the glass.

  • Thus, when the water dries, what is left is an unsightly dirty stain.

  • Stains like these, if left untreated, can badly affect your building.

  • It is important to hire external building cleaning services to maintain the substance and the elegant look of your house or office building.

  • If the external areas of your building cleaned regularly then it can help protect the building in the long run.

  • It also avoid further and sometimes expensive deterioration repairs – it’s cheaper to maintain than renew!

  • At Malaysia, external building surfaces should be cleaned every 3-5 years on average to properly maintain and protect the building .

  • Creating a maintenance schedule for washing external building surfaces will grant your house or office buildings a cleaner, more professional and more appealing look.

  • If don’t clean it in time, the algae can create greenish blotches on siding and slowly breaks down the structure of buildings.
