It’s that time of year again…. Your render may be looking a bit grubby and maybe there are a few stains? Spring is the ideal time of year to clean down your render and kill that red or green algae that’s taken hold over the wet winter months. A wash down with some Decarock Homewash will kill the algae, remove ground in dirt and give your render a chance to shine. Use a small hand vacuum pump and spray the walls with Decarock Homeswash from your local Rowebb depot (using suitable PPE obviously…) leave it to work its magic and rinse off after 10-30 minutes depending on the stains. You will now be able to see if you need to carry out any small repairs and maybe consider a coat of weather protection or a suitable paint. Remember to take advice from render professionals about weather protection products and paints – It is imperative that these products are suitable for your render. These products must be more breathable than the render it is applied to and they must be specifically designed for use with your render. Using the wrong products can lead to significant damage to your render so take advice before you act!
