Render cleaning and treatment
Expert Render Cleaning in Llanelli, Swansea and all South Wales area
Many homes in recent years have been finished in a pre-coloured render especially in the Llanelli and Swansea area. This finish goes on quickly and is capable of making smooth uninterrupted modern lines. There is no need to paint this finish as the colour is through the material, so it is favoured by developers. The most popular products are K-rend, Weber and Parex.
In the wet climate of South Wales this kind of render tends to hold a little moisture creating a perfect environment for biological growth to thrive.
Firstly, Gentle Removal of biological staining from the render
Experts in Softwashing
The products we use will not invalidate the warranty of your coloured render, most manufactures also supply their own cleaning products such as k rend algae cleaner, Algotech from Parex or CL150 from Weber. These all contain similar active biocide ingredients and can be effective cleaners.
No Damage to your property or plants during cleaning
We have observed a great deal of damage caused to buildings from use of pressure washers using inappropriate pressure and nozzles. We only use the appropriate low pressure cleaning methods to ensure no unnecessary damage to the render.
Before any chemicals are applied it’s important that any plants and vegetation are protected also any delicate materials that could be altered or corroded by alkaline.
After the stain is identified a chemical application to kill the Algae, Fungus and Lichen is applied, this solution needs to be at the right concentration, temperature and the appropriate dwell time achieved. Biological growth literally grips the surface when it’s alive and trying to remove at this point can cause damage. When the biological growth is dead it’s much easier to gently rinse it away and this approach causes far less erosion from the cleaning process.
After a gentle low pressure steam rinse a suitable broad spectrum biocide such as algoclear Pro is recommended for greatest longevity of clean. It is also ideal to clean and treat adjacent surfaces such as rain water goods, ledges and reveals to remove sources of immediate re-contamination.
This biocide treatment is also a very effective solution for moss Removal and treatment when cleaning roofs.
