5 Essential Building Maintenance Tasks

The problem with very tall and high-rise buildings is that much of their exterior can fall victim of being out of sight and out of mind.  Keeping up with maintenance tasks is just as, if not more important on high-level buildings to ensure that their structure remains sound and problems that develop at height that are hard to spot are not left to worsen.

The following 5 maintenance tasks are essential for keeping your high-level property in tip-top condition.

Maintain brickwork or cladding

The up-keep of your high-rise building’s brickwork or cladding is essential for protecting both its interior and exterior from developing more serious and expensive problems.  Brickwork should be surveyed regularly so that any damaged bricks can be replaced or repainted to maintain your building’s structure. Regular cladding cleaning and maintenance of a building ensure its long-life and prevent costly replacement work.

Brush up your paintwork

Your building’s paintwork can have a big impact on its overall appearance.  Well maintained paintwork helps give a good first impression, whereas flaking or tired looking paintwork may devalue your building by giving the impression that it is not very well cared for which could be off-putting to clients and their customers.

Gutterwork

Looking after your high-level building’s gutterwork is perhaps one of the most important maintenance tasks for protecting your building.  A build-up of debris can cause blockages in your gutter which can then lead to internal damp problems as well as shortening the lifespan of the gutters themselves. Gutter cleaning is a quick-win maintenance task that can easily be performed on high level buildings by experts who are fully trained and qualified in working at height, by hiring cherry picker, spider lifts and abseiling personnel.

Washing windows

Sometimes when it comes to high level window cleaning on very tall buildings, direct access to the window using cherry pickers or rope access is the best way to produce squeaky clean results.  At Archer Window Cleaning, we will advise you on the best method of cleaning for your building’s specific requirements to make sure that your windows are always maintained to the highest standards.

Well maintained windows are likely to last longer as well as creating a great first impression for clients and customers.

Re-sealing windows

Regularly re-sealing your windows will not only extend their life, it will also help to protect the interior of your building from developing damp problems. On high-level buildings, it may not always immediately be apparent that your windows need resealing and it is advisable to have them inspected at regular intervals to catch any problems early on.
