Render Cleaning

Render cleaning typically refers to the process of cleaning and maintaining the external surfaces of a building, particularly those covered with render—a type of exterior finish made from materials like cement, lime, or acrylic. Over time, the render on buildings can accumulate dirt, algae, moss, and other contaminants, leading to a dull and unattractive appearance. Render cleaning aims to restore the appearance of the building by removing these contaminants and improving its overall aesthetic.

Here are some steps typically involved in render cleaning:

1.  Assessment:

Before starting the cleaning process, it's important to assess the condition of the render and identify the types of contaminants present. This helps determine the most suitable cleaning methods.

2.  Surface Preparation:

The cleaning process begins with preparing the area around the building. This might involve covering windows, doors, and other delicate surfaces to protect them from cleaning solutions.

3.  Cleaning Methods:

There are various methods for cleaning render, depending on the type of contaminants and the condition of the surface. Some common methods include pressure washing, soft washing (using low-pressure water and specialized cleaning solutions), and manual scrubbing with brushes.

4.  Cleaning Solutions:

Depending on the type of contaminants, different cleaning solutions might be used. These can include environmentally friendly detergents, biocidal washes to remove organic growth like algae and moss, and specialized render cleaning products.

5.  Application and Rinse:

The chosen cleaning solution is applied to the render surface and allowed to dwell for a specified period. This helps break down and loosen the contaminants. Afterward, the surface is thoroughly rinsed using water, ideally with controlled pressure to avoid damaging the render.

6.  Stain Removal:

Stubborn stains, such as rust stains or oil marks, might require additional treatment with specific stain removers.

7.  Post-Cleaning Treatment:

In some cases, it might be advisable to apply protective coatings or treatments to the render surface after cleaning. These coatings can help prevent future buildup of contaminants and maintain the appearance of the building for a longer period.

8.  Regular Maintenance:

To prolong the effects of render cleaning, regular maintenance is important. This might involve periodic cleaning to prevent contaminants from building up again.

When performing render cleaning, it's crucial to consider the type of render, the severity of contamination, and the appropriate cleaning methods to avoid causing damage to the surface. It's often recommended to hire professionals like Top Glass who are experienced in render cleaning to ensure safe and effective results.

  • WHAT IS PURE WATER CLEANING?
    The term Pure Water in window cleaning describes ordinary tap water that has been filtered through a purification system, to remove all the natural minerals. This water is often described as ‘deionised water’ due to the type of filtration used. The reason for this is that pure water dries to leave a completely crystal clear finish. At Top Glass we use pure water as it is a much cleaner and efficient way of cleaning windows and leaves your windows sparkling for longer!
