As an efficient and highly effective method of removing organic stains and dirt from your building’s exterior façade and surfaces, soft washing, power washing, and steam cleaning guarantee a brilliant finish.

A mix of soft washing, power washing, and steam cleaning for the broadest range of building surface materials means external façade cleaning can give you a surface-friendly way to deal with all organic contaminants (algae, moss, or bird fouling), built-up dirt, weathering, grime, and staining, and chewing gum or graffiti, with no surface damage.

Power washing for hard surfaces

Using a powerful pressure washing system can get rid of dirt, grime, stains, and contaminants for a super clean finish. More than capable of safely and effectively cutting through any build-up on a wide range of different external surfaces, including brick, stone, concrete, wood, aggregate, plastic, glass, metal, and commercial cladding, power washing façade cleaning can be used on just about any domestic, commercial, industrial, or retail building at any time.

Soft washing for rendered surfaces

While tough on weather protection, many types of building render are too fragile for power or pressure washing. Rendered surfaces can be easily damaged or broken, and power washing can result in a render that needs repair. But a gentler, no less effective, surface cleaning option is available for any painted or unpainted render your building has.

Using a soft washing system, all types of delicate render, including all-through colour render brands such as K-Rend, Sto-Rend, Mapei, Tyrolene, and Lyme, together with other render types including spar dash, pebble dash, painted sand cement, and alpine finish, can now be cleaned, protected, and restored to their former glory.

Prestige recently cleaned our gutters for our business, a two-storey warehouse. Despite some difficulties with access, they overcame this and did a good job. The communication was excellent.

Steam cleaning for historic surfaces

And for the conservation of any historical building, statue, or monument with old and delicate stonework, woodwork, or masonry, DOFF steam cleaning technology is the ideal cleaning method. While capable of cleaning general dirt and grime, weather staining, bird and animal mess, moss, algae, fungus, and air pollutants, the high-temperature, low-pressure water vapour leaves a clean surface that dries quickly and causes no surface damage.

Chemical-free surface cleaning

Most building façade and surface cleaning is entirely cold water-based. Power washing systems rely on high water pressure and flow without any chemicals, while DOFF steam cleaning uses only low-pressure water vapour. And, without chemicals, biocides, or detergents, it provides a natural, eco-friendly cleaning method.

However, rendered surfaces may need a little help to get really clean. Due to their fragility, soft washing is the preferred option for removing dirt, grime, and stains effectively on rendered surfaces. Because soft washing doesn’t have the same high water pressure or flow, a specialist cleaning solution may help target more stubborn areas.
