Black staining before and after soft wash cleaning

Causes of staining on brick, render, stone & other masonry

Primary reasons for the deposit of dirt, contaminants and other staining on homes and buildings are atmospheric pollutants, acid rain, traffic pollution and organic growth such as red, green or black algae, mould, mildew, moss and lichen.

Urban environments are particularly prone to carbon and pollution from vehicles and local industry containing sulphur dioxide. This reacts with water to create sulphuric acid, commonly known as acid rain, leading to gypsum and black staining on buildings.

Metallic & Rust Stains are orange, red or brown and result from metal embedded in the surface such as steel fixings, nails, screws and brackets. or from waterborne run-off from metal found in cladding and flashings. Minerals naturally present within a substrate can also be another source of staining. When they react with an inappropriate acidic chemical cleaner it can cause severe metal and rust staining. Inexperienced amateurs will do much more harm than good.

This is another reason for choosing Gleam Team Cleaning Services for exterior house cleaning in Kent, London and south east.

Our professional house washing cleans, restores and removes the following types of staining:

  • red, black & green algae
  • mould, mildew, moss, black & white lichen spots

  • hard water, calcium & limescale stains

Before and After Cleaning

How we clean building & house exteriors, brick walls, render, stone, cladding and other surfaces in Kent & London

The primary cause of masonry decay is excessive moisture.

It is vital that you use an experienced, knowledgeable building cleaner who understands how to clean the external areas of your home or business properly and safely, and in accordance with the Code of Practice for Cleaning and Surface Repair of Buildings which came into affect in 2000.

Many factors can influence the outcome and success of facade cleaning and inappropriate cleaning methods can lead to longer term problems not immediately apparent.

Homes, buildings and walls should always be cleaned using the most gentle method and with the least amount of water possible. For this reason we do NOT clean masonry with high power pressure washing. This is the preserve of inexperienced exterior cleaning companies who don’t know, or just don’t care, about the risks involved for recognised best practice.
