Industrial façade cleaning
Cleaning large façade surfaces is a specialist’s job. As an experienced expert, Suerickx masters various technologies to clean your industrial façade professionally.
Before we take on your façade, we study the substrate on site and develop an action plan, choosing the most appropriate cleaning method for your façade:
- Ibix-blasting – We clean your façade with a jet of air and water and a cleaning agent suited to your façade cladding. Depending on the need, we change the proportion between the various components to ensure a thorough cleaning of your façade, thereby avoiding any damage. Ibix jets minimise the amount of waste water.
- Rotating mist-blasting – We combine water, air and a blasting agent in a rotating jet that allows us to finetune the pressure. Using a minimum of water and cleaning agent, we succeed in cleaning virtually any façade. Because mist-blasting does not drench the substrate, the top coat can be applied on the same day, to finalise the cleaning.
- Steamwash (hot water) – This is a less expensive cleaning method, unleashing tap water under pressure and at a high temperature (up to 105°C) onto your façade. This method does not affect the patina of your façade and preserves the original surface.
- Technical cleaning – Superficial cleaning in preparation for painting is carried out using pure tap water under very high pressure. This allows us to remove moss, algae and loose particles, thus facilitating pointwork, waterproofing or painting.
- Chemical cleaning – We never use hydrofluoric acid or hydrochloric acid. Other, modern and harmless chemicals can be added to the cleaning agent if your façade requires it.
- Sandblasting– Cleaning method in which grit is blasted onto objects. The treated materials include: metal (removal of rust, paint or pollution), bronze (roughening for further treatment), glass (transparancy effects) and wood (removal of varnish, paint or pollution).
