Public realm cleaning for the post-COVID recovery – act now.
As we gradually emerge from lockdown and the tier system into a post-COVID world, the thoughts of business owners and property managers are turning to making their premises recovery-ready.
Public realm cleaning – don’t overlook what’s underfoot
The visual appearance of the public areas approaching and surrounding office, retail and hospitality premises is an important commercial consideration. Whilst building owners and property managers may overlook what’s underfoot, customers, occupants and visitors rarely do. From paved areas and forecourts to steps and ramps, every surface contributes to the overall presentation of a building the sense of welcome.
More than some sheltered building façades, external flooring surfaces are at the mercy of the elements all year round – regardless of the prevailing weather conditions and wind direction. In more exposed, high traffic zones, staining, fouling and build-up of pollutants like oil and chewing gum take their toll; in lower footfall areas, spores multiply and algae thrives.
Experts in paving cleaning and protection – all types of surfaces
Whilst we are better known for the pioneering use of our patented façade gommage® technique, our expertise in public realm cleaning is also regularly called upon by many of our commercial clients. Using DiBO cleaning systems, all external flooring surfaces are gently cleaned using superheated water under low pressure. The application of this sector-leading technology is important – concrete, paved and stone surfaces can appear hard wearing and durable, but alternative, higher pressure techniques and jet washing can cause cracking and indentation, as well as breaking up or dislodging surrounding pointing. With DiBO machinery, we’re able to guarantee a spotless finish with absolutely no collateral damage.
From natural stone, marble, granite and Yorkstone to slate, block paving in brick and cement paving slabs, this versatile technology is kind to all substrates.
