In Asia, it is safe to say that acid rain is the main cause of facade decay and deterioration in the region. When fossil fuel is burnt in cars and factories air pollutants such as sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are produced leading to acid rain. Furthermore, this leads to an increase in moisture build up and if a building has a poor drainage system these elements become a recipe for facade decay.
If building facades are not cleaned regularly this shortens their longevity as well as making it unpleasant to look at the buildings. Even though it might seem that facade deterioration only affects the aesthetic of buildings it can be a threat to human health. Mold tends to develop on facades due to access moisture and it can lead to issues like skin irritation, coughing and migraines in people occupying that building.
That mind, it is crucial to constantly clean facades, this prevents future costs resulting from having to replace the facades by sustaining the integrity of a building.
