Complementing our façade and brickwork cleaning service, our specialists are fully trained and experienced in cleaning building renders. This area of a property is a different material that becomes dirty through the usual dirt and grime, but also acts as a breeding ground for unsightly algae. This is because render is more porous than many other external materials, so whilst it looks great when newly applied, it soon becomes the ideal spot for spores to grow and develop, which can adopt different colours over time.
Unlike with brickwork and other façades, power or jet washing is entirely unsuitable for the job. If this approach were to be adopted, the result will be patchy at best and making the exterior of your property look even worse than before. Meanwhile, this type of cleaning only removes the stain, rather than killing the spores, so the problem will soon return. And as if that isn’t a big enough reason, the high pressure can damage the render and even blast chunks of it off the wall, which we’re sure you’ll agree is a terrible result.
Soft washing is the solution, which is yet another specialist service that Veteran Stone offers to commercial and domestic customers. This process involves low pressure equipment and suitable cleaning solutions that are designed to remove stains and kill algae, mildew and mould, all while maintaining the structural integrity of the render. The end result is a property that suddenly looks as if it’s just been built, plus when it eventually begins to look dirty again, we can make a return visit to nip the problem in the bud.
