Your office, factory or commercial premises reflect your business. It is the first thing that visitors see and acts as an important ‘first impression’ to your company, its identity and values.

A dirty building exterior covered in bio matter, weathering dirt and grime, pigeon fouling and other staining can create a negative impression to visitors and staff who see the building each day.

At Balmore Contracting, we provide a complete exterior building cleaning service that protects your buildings stonework while cleaning deep to produce visibly impressive results.

DOFF Steam Cleaning makes the ideal paint removal tool for stonework.

There are NO chemicals used in DOFF Cleaning and compared to pressure washing, the amount of water actually used is considerably lower which is better for the environment.

DOFF Steam Cleaning can be used indoors and out doors to safely remove ingrained surface contaminates and stains in the following situations:

  • Fire Damage Residue Cleaning
  • Roof Cleaning
  • Bird Fouling Cleaning
  • Cladding Cleaning
  • Cleans all stone surfaces (even marble)
  • Removes calcium staining
  • Graffiti removal
  • Bitumen and wax coating removal
  • Carbon staining
  • Moss, algae and fungi removal
  • Metal cleaning

TORC Blasting

The advanced stone cleaning method preferred by heritage organisations across Scotland and England, the TORC Stone Cleaning System is the ideal way to carefully clean stonework on older or listed buildings.

TORC Cleaning can be used for:

  • The removal of carbon sulphation
  • The removal of lime & cement based paints
  • The removal of paint residues
  • The removal of most aged oil based paints
  • The removal of bitumen
  • The removal of lime scale

DRY Ice Cleaning

Dry Ice Cleaning is an environmentally friendly form of controlled and precise cleaning that uses frozen carbon dioxide pellets to remove scales and contaminants from the likes of metal to remove corrosion, rust, paint and other forms of staining and contaminants.

This non-waste cleaning method can be used in numerous industries across the UK and because the 3mm carbon dioxide pellets return to a gas state upon impact with the cleaning surface, they leave no residue. This can be an invaluable benefit for some industries both in being able to contain any pollutant excess that is removed from the source material and also in the environments that the system can be used in.

Softwashing

Softwashing is an eco-friendly cleaning method that provides proven cleaning results on multiple surfaces ranging from roughcasting walls, driveways, steps, roofing and more. The softwashing system is a delicate method of cleaning that will not damage the cleaning surfaces; something that can commonly happen with high pressure washing.

  • Path Cleaning
  • Roughcasting
  • Sandstone Cleaning
  • Roofing / Roof Cleaning
  • Concrete Steps Cleaning

Rope Access Window Cleaning

While ground floor window cleaning is a relatively straightforward process, there reaches a point where higher windows require a dedicated ‘at height’ cleaning team. And that is exactly what our Rope Access team can deliver.

Rope Access is a rope system (similar to what climbers use) that allows safe working at height access. We use rope access for countless building and roofing maintenance and repair services and for exterior cleaning of a building, Rope Access is an invaluable asset that allows us to offer more and reach higher than our competitors. Where scaffolding and lift vehicles cannot access, Rope Access provides the ideal difficult access solution and is the perfect solution for difficult access window cleaning.
