Can you clean my Render?
Yes, whether it is Sand & Cement render, K-Rend, Monocouche, Lime render or Pebble dash our deep cleaning render cleaning processes will remove the algae spores thereby removing the red, green, yellow and black algae and carbon, environmental staining.
What causes the red, green, yellow and black discolouring on my Render?
Damp areas caused, especially during the wet & windy months allows moisture to bed into the texture of the render where organic matter can be absorbed causing growth and reproduction of algae. Shaded, poorly lit areas creating a cold and damp environment also encourage the growth of algae and can be accelerated in planted areas around the render.
Do you carry out a site survey?
Without obligation, our first step is to survey and evaluate the condition and properties of your render system to determine the specific process of application for your building. The next step is to clean a ‘test patch’ free of charge, giving you visible results without compromise to the Integrity of the render.
It is imperative, the company you choose understand different Render systems and the processes of how to deep clean each surface type. You can be assured Wadesons will evaluate and complete any works to the highest of standards.
How do you Deep clean my Render?
The application and process we employ varies according to the render type and condition. The survey we undertake enables us to evaluate the specific process and systems required. The free ‘test patch deep clean’ provides you with visible proof of the results you can expect.
Our approach will include the following considerations:
- Softwash bio degradable chemical type & mix ratio
- Water to Steam (0-150 c)
- Variable Water Pressure Systems
- Inhibitor to prevent re growth
Is it effective?
Yes, very effective. After the deep clean, the building will look clean, fresh and in many cases as new giving fantastic results and look aesthetically pleasing again in addition to maintaining or increasing property value.
Can you prevent the algae from coming back?
Once the render has been deep cleaned and looking as good as new, we will apply a biocide Inhibitor preventing the spores to take root for a considerable time. This can last many years or less if any part of the building is exposed to damp, moisture or shading.
Can’t I just paint over the algae growth?
Painting without cleaning first is ‘masking’ the problem causing accelerated deterioration of your painted surface as the spores and algae breakdown the paint. This can lead to considerable and unwelcome costs.
Does deep Render cleaning weaken or damage the Render in any way?
No. If the correct approach and processes of application are applied the result in essence is a healing effect. Wadesons are experienced in surveying, evaluating and applying the correct processes to ensure there is no weakening or damage to the render. Any damaged render will be highlighted during the survey prior to any works.
Do you repair cracked or damaged render?
If the survey identifies damage, we will evaluate and suggest the most appropriate and effective repair solution for your building. Only skilled and experienced personnel are used for damage repairs to ensure the work is carried out correctly with a high standard finish. This is not an area to risk using unskilled, unproven workman in render repair.
