Understanding the Causes of Mould Growth on Render

Why Does Mould Grow on Exterior Rendered Walls to Housing Stock. Attend our free course about Understanding the Causes of Mould Growth on Render.

Do you work for an housing association or council and need help with understanding how to “deal” with mould on exterior walls and other surfaces.

We offer FREE courses on “how to” remove mould from housing stock. These courses are designed to educate you on why mould occurs, and how to treat the infested areas.

One of the questions many people are asking is what products should we use to remove mould. The simple answer is soft washing using sodium hypochlorite because it kills all known germs. Used correctly, the treatment can be applied quickly, cheaply and is very effective at removing mould spores.


  1. Introduction to Mould
  2. Mould & The Law
  3. The Sustainability of Sodium Hypochlorite

Our classes start at 09.30 and finish by 12.30. Workbook and light refreshments will be provided. Please call us to discuss your requirements further. These courses are provided free of charge.

Why does mould grow?

Understanding the causes of mould growth on render will teach you how to prevent mould growth from occurring in the first place. How to remove swathes of red, green, black mould growth as well as how to maintain mould free exterior surfaces.

Because Awaabs law will force social landlords to eradicate mould within strict new time limits you need to understand what actions to take.

Many housing associations and local councils do not have the skills or equipment to deal with exterior mould removal.

Because they have little or no understanding the causes of mould growth on render, many of them do not understand what to do.

Annual maintenance is key to preventing mould growth, this should be low cost with high impact on protecting properties from sick building syndrome.

Spraying on a safe Soft Wash solution which is made up of water, sodium hypochlorite and Green Wash which contains anti microbials, will kill off mould spores. Some people call this an anti-fungal wash.

What our Clients Think

See all testimonials
  • From my initial contact with Purple Rhino to the finish, their work was very professionally carried out. Their team arrived on the arranged date and completed the work to a very high standard. Also, at very short notice, they managed to carry out a large cleaning schedule over a weekend in order for the school to look it’s best for a visit by RIBA judges. This was safely completed while various areas were in use. Definitely a five star service and I would recommend this company.

  • “Purple Rhino first sent us through an informative booklet about Industrial building cleaning in March 2013, I invited them down to survey our six storey building in Crawley, West Sussex known as The Atrium, they agreed to carry out a test sample FREE of charge and without obligation. The test results were extremely positive and it was agreed that the whole building façade and glass restoration service was needed to make the building look presentable once again. The works took them just over three weeks, and they gained access by using the building’s own cradle system and the use of Access Platforms, with minimal disruption to our staff and neighbours, the building now looks extremely good as it did when constructed. We will be using Purple Rhino for an agreed scheduled cleaning service to keep the building looking pristine at all times”

    Graeme Ferguson Head of Property

  • My experience with Purple Rhino was outstanding,  form the gentleman that completed a quote for the work to be completed to the guys who cleaned down the exterior of our building all were prompt, polite and professional .  I would recommend the service to everyone!!!
