Cleaning Cladding: What you need to know

Many commercial buildings are cladded, and presentation means everything when it comes to first impressions!

Before we talking about what do know about cladding when it comes to cleaning it, we should first talk a bit about what cladding is. Essentially, cladding is a type of surface where you apply one type of material over another to give it a protective layer. Commonly for commercial and industrial works, cladding is attached to the main structure of a building proper to form this external surface. 

With that out of the way, it must be said that cleaning your cladding is essential, especially when it’s your business. Cladding has the added benefit of a variety of materials to choose from, but leaving it to gather grime and dirt overtime will only diminish its appearance.

Before After

Make sure you know how sturdy your cladding is. There is a conception that power washing cladding isn’t good for it as it’ll end up damaging the surface. In Power Washing Irelands over 30 years power washing all kinds of surfaces we have not found this to be the case. But this is because we know how hard and soft we need to be when tackling any surface, including cladding. If you’re not sure, ask a specialist!

Handwashing the cladding is of course the most 

After cleaning off all the dirt and grime on the cladding, it is important to give the surface a rinse off afterwards. This may seem obvious, but cladding (especially metal based cladding) can hide blotchy marks. Those can be easily remedied by giving the cladding a quick rinse down to make sure any residue dirt is completely removed.
