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.
