Wall and Render Cleaning, Moss, Lichen and Algae removal
Moss, algae and lichen contamination on property walls and external render can indeed cause problems if left too long and not treated appropriately. Our ever-changing damp climate and less pollution is a perfect breeding ground for these non-parasitic plant-like organisms that thrive on hard porous surfaces of our dwellings.
Why do our render and outside walls attract these unsightly pollutants?
Algae, moss, and lichens have been around for millions of years on our planet. They have not changed much over this time period. They consist of single-celled algae to more complex mosses that cover our roofs, buildings and walls. As they are living organisms which only require basic necessities to survive, water, light and mineral salts to keep them alive a prospering. This creates problems as they can survive on any porous hard surface, including concrete, granite, render and sandstone, to name a few.
The root systems of these organic growths have the ability to burrow up to 12mm into solid granite. Thus making wall render, brickwork and concrete roof tiles easy to take hold on. As they grow and establish themselves on your surfaces, the roots that carry water will retract and expand due to frost and different temperatures, causing the surface to degrade and split.
Moss removal and Render Damage
Basically the outside of our properties and buildings take a lot of stick over the winter with rain, wind and dampness. If left unattended for long periods of time the wet moss and algae drags out the moisture and can start a corrosion process that pulls off the render or coatings that adorns your building. Not only will these organic matters destroy your render, but they will also make the render or coatings of your building look tired, dirty and drab looking.
Warning: Many render manufactures state that their product should not be pressure washed and any remaining guarantees will be void if they have been cleaned this way.
Our soft wash service is ideal and will not harm your render or guarantee!
Moss and Algae Problems on brickwork
Moss and Algae Problems on brickwork apart from the unsightly aesthetic problem of ugly stained moss algae and lichen brick wall, these infestations can cause weaknesses in the structure of the bricks and mortar joints. As bricks are porous in design the organic matter of these infestations take hold and it’s only a matter of time before they eat away at the surface. The root systems of moss penetrate the bricks and as the roots continually freeze and expand and drain the surface
We offer a solution to this problem
We try to stay away from heavy pressure washing methods used by other cleaning companies. All though this can be a quick process to clean your rendering and brickwork, we feel this method is too aggressive for the surfaces in question.

This we feel is safer and will keep the surface cleaner and contaminate free for a much longer period of time, a winning combination in our eyes.
Soft Wash Render and Brickwork Cleaning Method

The chemicals are then allowed to do their work and breakdown all the problem moss, lichens and algae's. When the solution has taken effect a soft wash will remove the unwanted matter, leaving a clean surface.
