Soft washing- The Most Effective Way to Clean Render
More old fashioned cleaning methods like power washing will not clean most render effectively. Not only this- but they also risk damaging the substrate- this is because render does not typically respond well to uncontrolled bursts of high pressure. One Stop Solutions uses the latest Soft washing technology- that uses low pressure cleaning techniques, such as steam and biocide. Soft washing render not only cleans it, and removes stains, but it also does so more efficiently, using less power and water.
One of the main advantages of soft washing is that it is applied at low pressure, which ensures that even delicate surfaces aren’t damaged. This makes it the perfect cleaning method for those who want to maintain the look of their property without causing any harm to surface.
Soft washing kills the spores of algae, mould, bacteria and organic biofilm that cold water pressure washing cannot remove.
Soft washing is the preferred method for cleaning commercial and residential premised as it is highly effective on a wide range of surfaces including Monocouche silicone renders K-Rend, Weber, wet dash, pebbledash, stucco, stonework, concrete, king span cladding.
Soft washing is a cost effective alternative to having your property painted. Painting over the living biofilm of algae and mould will result in it striking through the paint after a short period of time
What is render?
Render is a type of exterior wall finish that is traditionally made from a mixture of cement, sand, water and sometimes lime.
In more recent years modern materials have been used to create renderings such as acrylic, silicone and polymers which provide different benefits, like being more flexible, having a longer lifespan or being more resistant to mould.
Render can also come in a variety of colours which helps it to achieve different looks for your home.
It can be applied in a variety of ways and is often used on homes for its durability and weatherproofing properties.
How do you know if your render needs cleaning?
If you notice any of the following, it’s time to clean your render:
Algae or moss growth
Stains from things like rainwater or dirt
Cracks or flaking
Render that is starting to look dull.
Tips for keeping your render clean in the future
Now that you have done all of the hard work and have your render looking as good as new, you will want to keep it that way!
Here are some tips to help you:
Clean any dirt and debris from gutters and downpipes as this can cause staining on the render.
Trim any trees or plants that are close to the house as they can drop leaves and other debris on the render.
Inspect the render regularly for any cracks or damage and repair them as soon as possible to avoid further damage.
If you live in an area that is prone to algae, consider having your render treated with an anti-algae solution
