A building looks its best when free of grime and pollutants. While aesthetics is the primary reason for cleaning a building, it is also important to expose the substrate for preservation, evaluation and historical significance.
It is almost impossible to gauge the condition of masonry when the facade is covered in dirt, grime and/or a coating. In addition, damaging pollutants such as carbon dioxide, sulphur and nitrogen oxides accelerate facade deterioration. Moisture is the primary cause of masonry decay, cleaning a facade allows for the normal transpiration of moisture.
