ACP Façade Cleaning Tips 825 510 admin

The face of modern architecture and design across urban landscapes, Aluminium Composite Panels clad facades are a common sight. They have plenty of benefits and come in a variety of colours, variety of texture which makes it an architect’s delight. Viva ACP sheets come in 300+ colours, customisable for colours, wind pressure and fire-resistant, making them the best choice for external facades and signages. Here’s everything you need to know about ACP facade cleaning and maintenance process:

  1. TLC is key. Be Gentle.
    At Viva we use International standard paints and aluminium coil, which do not succumb to scratches and indentation easily. There is no need to use hard cleaning solutions, solvents etc. Regular cleaning using a sponge/cloth and detergent water is more than sufficient. The aim is to only remove dirt and grit from the surface.
  2. Mind the time.
    Take note that as Aluminium is a metal, it is subject to small contraction and expansion based on heat level at certain times of the day. Ensure that you choose a time where it is neither too hot nor too cold so that you can cover the maximum surface without compromise.
  3. Dealing with soil
    If the building is in an area that is prone to soil, dirt and grit, which is often the case in industrial zones and city centres, one needs to be mindful about creating scratches. For this reason, a pre-cleaning set up where forceful water rinse is done from top to bottom. Use water and first rinse the panel with moderate pressure. If the soil is sticky and adhering, then you need to go for a mild detergent solution. If the surfaces are blackened due to pollution, then you will need to use detergent.
  4. Dealing with pollution
    For dealing with pollution and to restore shine, one needs to use cleaner or detergent. Using a top-down approach, apply cleaner on the surface. However, dripping of cleaner on to the bottom panels needs to be minimised. Remove drips and splashes immediately!
  5. Choosing right cleaner/detergent
    Maintaining a pH level of 8 in the water is important. Large deviations from this can result in heavy damage to the panel. Before starting the cleaning procedure, make sure you apply the detergent water to a small patch and leave for one minute to check if there could be any damage. Once the safety of the detergent is confirmed, proceed with the cleaning process. Maximum 5% cleaning solution should be used.
  6. Choosing cleaning material
    It is very important to note that your cleaning rags and or sponges are themselves free of grit and dirt. Cleaning with abrasive materials can cause more scratches.
  7. Cleaning process
    Horizontal motions first and then vertical motions is the preferred method. Make sure your sponge is thoroughly cleaned and dried. Use a lint-free cloth to remove the excess water after cleaning.
  8. The Dos and Don’ts
    Do not use MFK based cleaning agents, caustic soda, potassium hydroxide and acid as you should be aware that ACP sheets are lacquered. If construction is still going on in the building, cover the previously installed ACP panels with something as it is difficult to remove sealants and machine oils from ACP panels.
