How to Clean Plastic or PVC Cladding

Cleaning your plastic or PVC cladding is a task that you need to complete on a regular basis to increase its lifespan and keep it looking its best. While we all know this task is something we need to do, cleaning PVC cladding or plastic cladding requires you to use the correct materials and equipment to avoid damage to the cladding. Today we’re going to share with you a complete guide of the steps to take for effective cleaning plastic cladding. If you need assistance with your PVC cladding cleaning, don’t hesitate to contact our team of professionals who will be here to support you at any time.

Why Should You Clean Plastic and PVC Cladding?

Before we look at how to clean your cladding, you might be wondering why you should clean it on a regular basis. Just as with zinc cladding cleaning and other materials, dirt and dust soon starts to build up over time. Regular cleaning improves the appearance of your cladding. Not only that, but it will help to protect the material and increase the lifespan of this investment. You’ll also find that it helps to prevent damage from dirt and debris and also gives you the chance to identify any issues with your cladding easier. 

Cleaning Plastic Cladding and PVC Cladding

When it comes to cleaning plastic cladding, there are certain materials and tools that you’ll need to complete this job properly. Of course, if you don’t feel comfortable doing this work, a commercial cladding cleaning service will bring these with them to complete the job to the highest standard. The basic equipment you need includes hot soapy water (made with washing up liquid), a sponge and a cleaning product that’s designed for use on plastic and PVC (such as cream cleaner). If you are trying to reach higher points, then a telescopic sponge mop will help with this job, otherwise a microfibre cloth is another tool we recommend using for the work. 

One of the most important things to keep in mind is that you’ll need to avoid products that contain bleach or other harsh chemicals that can damage the plastic. These solutions can cause damage and discolouration and undo all of your good work of cleaning the cladding. Some cleaning sprays that work on other materials may leave marks on plastic and PVC cladding which may be difficult to remove. 

How to Clean PVC Cladding

Once you have the materials we’ve shared above or booked an appointment with a cladding cleaning service, it’s time to start the process of cleaning up your cladding. Remember, if you have cladding that’s located high up or in places that are hard to reach, you should always work with a professional cleaner to avoid the chances of injuries or damage to your building. 

The first step in the process is to get a bucket and fill it up with hot water and washing-up liquid. From there, you should take the sponge and wipe off any dust or dirt that’s built up on the panels using the mixture from the bucket. Once the surface is fully cleaned off, you’ll want to rinse off any leftover soap and dry the panels. You can then use the microfibre cloth to apply the cleaning product you’ve selected. This helps to get rid of the stubborn dirt that’s built up and protect your cladding from corrosion. 

These simple steps will help to make your cladding look as good as new again. One thing that’s important to remember is that you need to carry out this task on a regular basis to see the long-term benefits of cladding cleaning. If you leave it too long between cladding cleaning sessions, you may find that the cladding becomes damaged due to the dirt and debris building up. Our team will be able to visit your home or workplace on a regular basis and support you with this job. 

Should You Clean Plastic and PVC Cladding Boards?

A question we are often asked by homeowners is whether it’s necessary to clean cladding boards. While these might just be added to your building for aesthetic reasons, cleaning them is essential to extend the life of the cladding and protect them from corrosion. Another thing to keep in mind is that cleaning is often part of the warranty that’s part of the installation process. You may have to clean the cladding boards at certain time intervals to make a claim in the future. Our team can also support you with this task if you don’t have the time or are unsure about how to carry out this work.
