Cleaning Your Home’s UPVC the Right Way

UPVC is a wonderful thing to have on your home, whether you’re based in Brentwood or elsewhere in Essex.

It’s extremely versatile, equally suited to cladding, fascias, soffits and gutters. It looks fantastic too, giving your home a modern, clean appearance (assuming it’s been well-looked after). It’s also a particularly resilient material: it’s strong whilst being lightweight, and durable against weathering and long-term corrosion. Finally, it’s eminently affordable; even with all those aforementioned benefits, a full set of UPVC around your home won’t break the bank.

UPVC might just be the closest thing there is to a “perfect” material for your cladding, fascias, and so on. Even this wonderful substance has its drawbacks, however. UPVC might be generally weatherproof – even against our often-harsh Great British climate – but over time even it will start to lose its sheen. That brilliant clean, white appearance will start to darken with grime, and nasty, unwanted things like mildew and mould will inevitably begin to build up.

Of course, you can try to take the DIY approach to keeping your UPVC clean. It’s certainly a worthy aim, but – as seasoned professionals here at Revive Cleaning & Maintenance – we warn you that there are some drawbacks!

Firstly, it’s unlikely you’ll come across the right materials for the job. There are lots of cheap and cheerful products you can buy, which claim they’ll get your UPVC clean; in reality, however, they almost always come up short. Secondly, unless you’ve had professional training in UPVC cleaning (which… we’re guessing you haven’t!), you can ultimately do more harm than good to your fascias and soffits, on your home or your conservatory. You can end up scratching or otherwise harming the surfaces; if the damage is severe enough, you’ll then have to call in the professionals anyway to restore them for you! Thirdly and finally, you’re not only putting your home at risk; you’re putting yourself in danger too. Going up ladders to clean your lofty UPVC fascias and soffits is extremely risky, for obvious reasons.

We hope you can see that, whilst admirable, the DIY route is not the smartest one you can take. “So, what should I do then?” we hear you ask. Call in Revive Cleaning and Restoration Ltd, of course; Essex’s premier UPVC cleaning company!

Simply call in the professionals at Revive Cleaning & Restoration, sit back, and relax.
