Ceiling Tile Cleaning vs. Ceiling Tile Replacement – Cost comparison

Facilities managers, property maintenance companies, office fit out and refurbishment specialists have appointed Calabash to clean suspended ceiling tiles for them. This has saved them up to 75% against the cost of replacing acoustic ceilings. Cleaning existing ceiling tiles also substantially reduces the disruption that would occur if they were to be replaced.

Whether the problem involves grease stain removal, cleaning fire smoke damage or simply restoring aged and discoloured ceiling tiles, acoustic ceilings, metal perforated ceilings, or even walls, Calabash probably have a solution. Our safe, fast and non-toxic cleaning process returns discoloured ceilings to a vibrant, appealing state, all at a fraction of the cost of replacement.
