So you have a dirty building façade that needs some serious TLC, but it's hard to know where to start. Does it sound familiar? Sometimes speaking with service providers can make all kinds of questions; How do you know what the pros and cons have different cleaning methods and how you know you can trust what someone says to you?
By remembering this, I have collected 3 practical tips for you to consider when you start your Building Cleaning Project
1) Money, Money, Money
The budget is considered consideration, but unfortunately, cheaper short-term solutions can be abrasive & expose the building substrate to a higher weathering rate. Allowing the budget to refuse everything can have an impact on the long-term sustainability of your building and ROI Pamungkas. After all, you have to speculate to accumulate, right?
There will always be pros and cons for different cleaning methods, but it is important to realize that short-term solutions can endanger the long-term integrity of the building. If the jet washing makes your building look very clean, it is likely to damage the substrate! It's really important you consider building materials before you use the Abrasive Cleaning method ... it's the only way you can avoid high costs in the future.
2) Holistic Not Prescriptive
One of the worst mistakes you can do is fail to consider the project as a whole: no matter what the function of the building, need a specially made solution that takes into account scary, environmental and local sustainability issues. One way in which you can be convinced about this is if the site survey is done. I will talk more about that next time, but enough to say that the price of over-the-phone may not be the best way forward.
Site surveys allow you to talk to prospective service providers and work with them to highlight your concerns about buildings. This is not a guarantee that they are the best people for the job, but they will be better placed to tell you if they have seen the building correctly and do the test to show what can (and cannot) be done to get rid of your building Amazing.
3) Pamungkas Lakmus Test
Talk to their service provider and test: Do they have client testimonials available and are they glad you approach their former clients? Do they have a strong relationship with their clients or repeat buyers? This can be an invaluable litmus test to ascertain whether the company is the right for your building. Anyone who holds your needs for clarity and transparency in their processes is not at all worth the time and money.
