What is the Best Way to Clean Render

28th November 2021 General

What is the Best Way to Clean Render?

Soft Washing is the answer to what is the best way to clean render. There is NO better method to ensure your render stays clean up to four to six times longer.

When considering what is the best way to clean your render, you should also ask yourself, what do I need to clean from the render?

Is it a man-made pollution such as graffiti or traffic atmospheric fallout, or is it organic infestation?

Once you know what you want cleaning from the renders surface you then need to know more about the render itself. Most renders are very delicate when it comes to cleaning them.

Once you understand how you are going to clean the render, you need to know how you are going to access any elevated level or other awkward areas.

If the rendered building fronts a road, where will the waste wash water go?

It is illegal to allow waste wash water to enter storm drains in the UK. Building owners face heavy fines if caught.

A waste wash water collection system may be required to protect you from the law.

You should also ask yourself, will the waste wash water cause damage to plants, grass, and shrubbery? Will it harm pets or children?

All waste wash water should be nuetralised after use. Simply spray a product like FINAL WASH over the render you have cleaned and the area the waste wash water went over.

Spray onto the render a soft wash solution between 2% and 4% to kill off any organic matter. Use a doff steam cleaner to remove graffiti or paint.

Render will go back to its original colour in most cases but strong coloured renders may have also suffered from UV damage and will looked washed out. Dark reds, purple and blues seem to suffer most, and the process cannot be reversed, because the render has become a victim of the sun. The soft wash process cannot cause damage to render but can uncover damage from before.

What else may be required, a ladder, an access tower or a MEWP to reach high level areas. Health & Safety should be considered at all times.

So now you are ready to clean the render on your home or office buildings.

  • We had tried to clean up the mess ourselves and tried numerous other cleaning companies without success

    Purple Rhino Industrial Floor Cleaners arrived on site – early and were unfazed by the size and scope of works required

  • Our listed railway station is built entirely of wood and our Pullman railway carriages  are also built of timber and all these structures require regular and gentle washing, without harmful chemicals, to preserve the paint.  We have used Purple Rhino for over 2 years and their structured approach to this large task ensures our buildings and windows stay in pristine condition.  Their use of specially purified water ensures a streak-free finish every time

  • I contacted Purple Rhino with a view to cleaning the external K Render panels on our large out of town retail park in Llandudno. The works were completed effectively on time, within budget and the K Render panels were extremely clean upon completion. This is was the first time I have used them but would definitely consider using them again.
