Spring is just around the corner! Spring is the ideal time to inspect and clean building facades and exteriors. The outdoor elements, winter weather, water, carbon pollution, and biological growth can stain and contaminate building facades.  Contaminants can create safety and maintenance issues that can quickly add to the cost of property management.

A professional can identify problem issues and recommend a repair and prevention plan that keeps your exteriors aesthetically pleasing and clean. Proper facade maintenance will aid in reducing the likelihood of unexpected costs and repairs and help to maintain the property’s value.

Facades can be made from any number of materials including brick, granite, marble, sandstone, limestone, brownstone, precast concrete, and more.  Likewise, they can all show deterioration and staining for any number of reasons, including:

  • Lack of maintenance
  • Movement
  • Freeze/thaw
  • Atmospheric pollution – carbon can be especially harmful
  • Biological growth
  • Moisture
  • Ice melt treatments

Ongoing maintenance is always recommended, no matter what the building material.  A clean and well-maintained facade projects professionalism, sets the tone for the businesses inside the building,  increases the life of the building, improves the property’s value, and makes surveying damage easier to see.
