Converted Windmill Cleaning

07/12/2022 | Exterior Building Cleaning, Facade cleaning, Kent, Listed Building Cleaning

This phenomenal converted windmill cleaning project in Kent is not for the faint hearted – if you are scared of heights, maybe skip to one of our many other amazing exterior cleaning projects! If you want to be amazed read on….

This octagonal brick disused windmill was originally a six floor smock mill. Interestingly, it was the only corn mill in Kent known to have five sweeps.

Having been disappointed with the results of previous cleaning attempts, the client contacted us to get the windmill clean delivered….which of course we did!

 Yet another fabulous exterior building cleaning by the Team DSW.

How To Clean A Windmill?

When the owners of this beautiful windmill contacted us, naturally they asked – but how will you actually clean this converted windmill? Afterall this historic building had been restored so lovingly and they wanted to make sure that the ongoing maintenance of the site was given just as much care and consideration. The building had been battered by the natural weathering process and the white fascia had become discoloured by lichens and other types of organic matter that was essentially decaying the building.

We undertook a thorough assessment of the site, including the ground conditions and what the owner wanted to achieve with the clean.

We took our time. When dealing with historic buildings or complicated shaped buildings like this beautiful Kent windmill, speed is not of the essence – care and consideration is!

We used the right team, the right access equipment and the right cleaning systems – which in this case was the DOFF Steam Cleaning machine.
