If you manage the maintenance of a high-rise building it’s your responsibility to take care of the interior and exterior. Over time the exteriors of buildings are subjected to weather and can be damaged by debris. Dirt and grime builds up on the facade and if left it can cause serious problems.
What is facade maintenance?
Facade maintenance is the process of cleaning, repairing and painting the exterior of a building. Conducting regular maintenance and facade inspections can help reduce future building repair costs and improve the longevity of your building.
How often should you carry out facade maintenance?
How often facade maintenance is required will depend on the location of your building. Some buildings are subjected to more serious weather conditions or pollution, meaning maintenance will need to be carried out on a more regular basis.
By conducting a facade maintenance inspection you can find out what repairs or maintenance your building needs. At Apex Facades we recommend facade inspections at least every year and cleaning and maintenance every 1 to 5 years.
The top 4 signs that your building needs facade maintenance are:
- The building is looking rundown and old.
- The windows are broken and need repair.
- The building looks dirty.
- It’s been more than 5 years since the building was cleaned.
