Is render cleaning necessary?

Render is a popular modern, exterior choice in the UK. It makes a building look clean and fresh. But once the exterior has been subjected to the UK’s weather for a year or two it can start to look faded and grubby with moss and lichens discolouring the finish. Making the home suddenly look much older and taking away its kerb appeal.

It can be upsetting when purchasing a beautiful new home to find it looking less than new shortly after.

If rendering isn’t regularly cleaned, it can fade or become infected with moss, lichens and algae. This stains the exterior and affects the appearance of the building. These stains don’t just simply wash off and require specialist cleaning.

How do we clean building render?

What many homeowners don’t realise is with gentle soft washing, using carefully selected chemicals the exterior of a property can be restored, coming up, almost like new.

It’s important not to just go with any exterior cleaning company when having your home soft-washed. The right chemicals need to be used, the right guidelines adhered to and the right level of pressure applied to ensure the house comes up gleaming, without damaging the exterior or gardens, pets, and local wildlife.

Trevor (T.J Dixon Exterior Cleaning Services) provides a safe and eco-friendly way to spruce up your exterior. Removing pollution, organic growth, dirt and grime.

He uses a low-pressure washer which gently removes stains and dirt alongside the correct chemical or soap required for the job. No ladders or scaffolding is required and most properties can be cleaned in less than a day. Making his services extremely cost-effective.

How regularly should render be cleaned?

This is entirely dependent on where your home is, its surroundings, and where it faces. Houses close to rivers and lakes tend to have more frequent infections. Walls which don’t get much sun (typically north and east-facing) are also more liable to more frequent discolouration and where the home lies in close proximity to trees or foliage.
