The section of a building visible to the public
is referred to as the façade. It is critical to keep a façade
clean and properly kept in order to guarantee that it has
retained its original elegance, strength, and so on.
Facades are built of numerous materials, and each
surface requires different cleaning chemicals and
procedures. Inadequate cleaning procedures can cause
significant damage to a building's façade. Façade
cleaning should be part of a regular maintenance
program and an early investigation procedure in order
to get access for repairs or maintenance work. Building
deterioration is mostly noticeable on the façade, regular
façade care also functions as a preventative step in
extending a building's lifespan. This study utilizes
observation methods on various types of façades.
Findings revealed that improper façade maintenance
results in fast deterioration of buildings. This study
recommends that façade cleaning should be done
regularly in order to enable effective preservation of
building materials, building components and the overall
appearance as well.
