What is rendering?
Rendering when used in context of building construction and renovation is a cement based product applied to internal or external walls to produce a weatherproofed finish to concrete and brick. The finished appearance of render varies according to personal taste and can be smooth, textured, plain or coloured.
We can safely and effectively clean all types of render including:
- K Rend
- Weber Rend
- Coloured Render
Over time house and building exterior surfaces begin to accumulate staining of different types and colours depending on local conditions. A biofilm builds up providing the ideal habitat for algae, mildew, mould and moss leading to black, green and red algae colonising an exterior rendered wall. Moisture retained in the wall provides the perfect damp environment for algae to thrive.
Other common causes of contaminants being deposited on walls and building and house exteriors include atmospheric pollution, traffic and industrial pollution in urban areas and organic growth.
It is important to first identify the cause of the soiling in order to decide on the most appropriate method of render cleaning.
Black carbon staining – gypsum crust
High levels of sulphur dioxide in the atmosphere when mixed with water can produce sulphuric acids, more commonly known as acid rain. This reacts with minerals found in render substrate such as brick mortar and when dry results in crystalised gypsum.
Our professional render cleaning service in Kent can safely and effectively clean and sanitise K Rend and other types of modern render and stucco returning your external walls to their original colour. It also kills all biological spores such as algae to prevent recolonisation.
We can clean rendered walls and remove all types of staining such as:
- green, black & red algae
- traffic pollution
- dirt and other contaminants
- carbon and gypsum
Cleaning algae from render
We can safely remove red, black and green algae from render and with a professional biocide it will provide long term protection from regrowth of algae and any other organic material.

Soft wash render cleaning in Kent
We use gentle but highly effective soft washing methods to clean rendered surfaces safely without risk of damaging your property.
We do not power wash render as it is a relatively soft material and high pressure cleaning is likely to damage the render and the wall underneath.
Low pressure soft washing
This involves the application of specialist cleaning products at low pressure to clean and restore K Rend and all other types of render. The powerful cleansers safely clean and restore any rendered surface.
Cleaning render using softwashing methods also minimises the amount of water needed and avoids saturation of the rendered surface. Excessive amounts of water, particularly when blasted at high power, can penetrate the render and substrate. Bricks are extremely susceptible to efflorescence which is the powdery white staining often seen on brick walls. This is caused by water and soluble salts found in bricks and mortars which then rise to the surface and are activated by water penetration.
Cleaning render using soft wash is safe, environmentally friendly and highly effective.
