BUILDING CHEMICAL CLEANING – IS IT SAFE
Low-pressure chemical cleans seen as an alternative to high-pressure washing, Low-pressure chemical cleaning has become a more popular, safer way to clean a commercial property in recent years. It offers a less damaging solution for cleaning sensitive buildings or materials which could be damaged or eroded by pressure washing.
The chemical cleaning procedure is to apply a cleaning agent to the surface of the building and allow it to kill the bacteria or fungi that are present, therefore cleaning the surface. Then follow with a low-pressure clean removing all residue.
The chemicals of choice that we see used a lot on commercial properties are Sodium Hypochlorite which has a high environmental and health risks, and caution should be taken if any contractor proposes to use such chemicals on your site.

Sodium Hypochlorite is a bleaching agent, which can produce oxidizing hazards, cause chemical burns, and can release chlorine gas, causing respiratory issues.

This includes super high reach water fed poles (safety matters again) and the latest Ultra-Pure Water Cleaning system for windows. Ultra-Pure water is just that – it’s purified through a resin filter to remove all the impurities and minerals – this means your glass can be scrubbed clean and the water evaporates off leaving a streak-free finish. If your glass is already etched with spots from rain this will remain, as it would after traditional scrub and squeegee window cleaning.
