The outside of your building is the start of the sales cycle. It gives your potential customers and visitors the first impression of your business and first impressions really do count. If your building looks dirty and tatty, what does that say about your products or services? And more to the point, fewer people will cross your threshold. Moreover, left unchecked, fungi, mosses, lichens and airborne pollutants can actually cause damage resulting in costly repair bills that could easily have been avoided.
Soda blasting is the perfect solution for external building cleaning as it does not damage the surface underneath the grime and has a very low environmental impact. It is fast becoming the premier solution in commercial and retail property cleaning, restoration and protection. It safely removes decades of surface contamination and other coatings bringing the property back to its original condition without harming the host material.
Blasting soda is made up of small crystals of sodium bicarbonate, these ‘explode’ on impact with the surface undergoing cleaning. The energy from this is transferred to the surface and disrupts the bonding within the contaminants and between the contaminants and building materials. The unwanted layer is simply blown away by the stream of compressed air that powers the blasting process. Since blasting soda is soft (about the hardness of talc), it does not abrade building materials. It works on all types of soiling and any surface. It is safe to use on door and window frames as it will not scratch or frost the glass.
