What is DOFF Steam Cleaning and how does it work?

DOFF steam cleaning is a sophisticated cleaning method using superheated steam to clean building facades. The steam is applied at varying temperatures and pressures through a specialised applicator, ensuring a gentle yet effective cleaning process. This technique is especially renowned for its delicate approach, making it ideal for older, more fragile surfaces that might be damaged by harsher cleaning methods.

How Does DOFF Steam Cleaning Work?

The DOFF system generates steam at temperatures exceeding 150°C, but the pressure remains relatively low. This combination allows for the efficient removal of grime, biological matter, and other unwanted substances without damaging the building’s surface. Unlike traditional pressure washing, which can be abrasive, this method is gentle, ensuring the preservation of historical and delicate materials.

The Benefits of DOFF Steam Cleaning

  1. Gentle Cleaning for Delicate Surfaces: This cleaning method is perfect for surfaces that cannot withstand high-pressure or abrasive cleaning methods. It’s particularly suitable for heritage sites, listed buildings, and older stone structures.
  2. Effective Removal of Biological Matter: Over time, buildings accumulate fungi, algae, moss, and other biological materials. These can cause significant deterioration and visual decay. The DOFF system efficiently removes these without damaging the surface.
  3. Versatility: From historic buildings to modern commercial facades, this cleaning method can handle a wide range of surfaces and materials, making it a versatile solution.
  4. Eco-Friendly: Using steam instead of harsh chemicals makes this method an environmentally friendly option. It’s safe for the surroundings and poses no risk to pets or people nearby.
  5. Water Efficiency: The system uses significantly less water than traditional pressure washing methods, making it a sustainable choice.
  6. Fast Drying: Surfaces cleaned with DOFF dry quickly, minimising disruption and allowing buildings to be used almost immediately after cleaning.
