Render Cleaning by RH Power Washing Explained

Render is used across the Ireland, especially on large modern buildings, but the manufacturers of render recommend that it needs sprucing up from time to time.  RH Power Washing  specialise in render cleaning and offer designated render cleaning services for all types of render. If not cleaned regularly, the colour of render will appear to fade. This is because render is likely to become infected with algae, mosses, and lichens that stain and ruin the appearance of a home or commercial building.

Many people simply do not know an effective way to remove stains from render. Thankfully RH Power Washing is a safe and eco friendly way of removing organic matter and atmospheric pollution from exterior render. Finished coloured renders like K-Rend, Moncouche and Weber suffer with algae, bacteria and mildew staining. Weather and pollution can also lead to staining and discolouration. At RH Power Washing we use our low pressure unit to gently clean render surfaces. If render is subjected to a high pressure wash it can cause long term damage, while softwashing will not harm the buildings substrate. A Softwash will will return any render surface cleaned to its natural state, looking freshly painted, thus increasing the buildings kerb appeal and value. We restore these surfaces, cleaning render, to as new conditions safely from the ground in most cases. In fact we can restore any rendered surface including painted render and all pebble & spa dashed finishes.

It is also very likely that your render will look worse on the north and east sides of the building, where there is less natural sunshine.  Trying to remove these organic growths can prove problematic. High pressure washing can cause real damage, and if incorrectly removed the infection will return too soon. With our softwash treatments we apply softwash products, with steam, to both clean the building and eliminate the infection. This ensures the building looks great after cleaning, and keeps its brilliance.

The staining and discolouration of render leads many to think that full re-painting is the solution. This is expensive and completely unnecessary. Red stains on render, and green algae on render, can be cleaned entirely. When it is clean, render keeps its colour! Cleaning render is the recommended and more cost effective way to maintain K-Rend surfaces. Until recently however high pressure cleaning was the only option available. Whether using hot or cold water under high pressure, the aggressive technology blasts moisture beneath render’s surface, which means organic growths return shortly after cleaning.  In many cases, high pressure cleaning has even blasted render totally off the wall!

RH Power Washing uses gentle, pH neutral products to kill the infection at root, to clean render and remove stains from render. Our low pressure tank system cleanses and replenishes render, restoring it to its natural finish and colour for years to come, without causing damage. The newly painted look of a clean render that has been softwashed typically lasts for longer than render cleaned by old fashioned methods.
