Cleaning the render is generally advised after a few years. This will sharpen the aesthetic look and rejuvenate the finished facade by removing any organic growth, bird droppings and film of weathering found on surface. When cleaning render it is not advised to clean it with a pressure washer as it can cause permanent damage to the render, Soft Washing is the chosen method offering a low-pressure cleaning technique which uses cleaning solutions specially chosen for each individual project depending on the surface and level of cleaning required. The cleaning solution is applied at low pressure to the most delicate surfaces which you wouldn’t use a pressure washer on at high output. The soft washing process aims not only to clean your surfaces but also to remove contaminants such as algae, moulds, mildews and bacteria that can actually decompose your exterior surfaces they are growing on
BEST PRACTICE TO MAINTAIN YOUR RENDER.
Organic growth on external surfaces is a sign that the prevailing conditions that exist (eg. high surface or substrate moisture levels, organic nutrient availability, airborne mold spores) are conducive to organic growth. Once initiated, natural growth will develop and continue until treatment is effected and one or all of the conditions are controlled. Where you see mold on a surface you need to look for potential causes – generally dirt accumulating on the surface (containing contaminants or the “food source”) and excess moisture (potentially poor ventilation, drainage, leaks allowing the moisture level to stay permanently high) Overwhelmingly, the easiest condition to control is the reduction of surface contamination through regular and simple cleaning. Dirt, organic matter, airborne pollution left unchecked provides both the nutrient source and increased moisture retention.
