Not dissimilar from jet washing, Soft washing is an alternative way to clean render that uses low-pressure equipment. It is still pressure washing your render, but there is less risk of breaking your render whilst trying to clean it.
Most render can be cleaned using soft washing, as it is substantially less dangerous for the render than using a pressure washer for the render cleaning. Monocouche, coloured render, lime, acrylic, silicone, sand and cement, and even pebbledash are all fine to be cleaned with a soft wash. Just make sure you’re careful when render cleaning, no matter what you use. A soft washing cleaning process will look like this:
Remove any moss or ivy from the wall using a brush. Gently prod the greenery away.
Apply a fungicidal and mould removal detergent to strip your render surface of any mould and algae growth. This will make cleaning render much easier, and will prevent the mould and algae from causing any further damage and discolouration.
Rinse your first treatment with a low-pressure washing,
Apply another treatment, this time just a suitable detergent to remove stains and dirt caused by weathering. Brush this onto the wall carefully, then leave for a short while.
Once you’ve left the treatment to do its job, it’s time for render cleaning. Using the low-pressure washer, target any marks and discoloration as you clean render.
Apply a layer to protect the clean render. This will mean that you will be able to leave it longer before doing any more render cleaning. It provides a hydrophobic coating to the clean render, preventing damp and organic growth from causing staining
Soft washing is also a fantastic way to clean roofs.
It is non damaging and long lasting.
Softwashing is suitable on many surfaces such as:
K Rend cleaning Weber render cleaning, Pebbledash cleaning, Cement Render cleaning, Brick, Stone, Roof tiles, Decking, Wood, Kingspan Cladding, Painted Surfaces or as preparation for painting. Tarmac and Asphalt and all patio and paving surfaces.

Property owners need to keep it free from algae, fungi and staining to keep render looking good.
Properly maintaining your modern render will ensure your building is protected from the elements, and its exterior looks good for as long as possible. By continuing to read this blog post, you can learn more.
