Low Pressure Cleaning
Weather pollution can change the appearance of your property. Traditionally buildings were pressure washed and repainted to remove stains caused by these contaminants. However, the results often varied and did not provide a sustainable approach to improving appearances, or slowing down re-growth. Pressure washing doesn’t actually remove the spores from the microstructure. The pressure of water actually feeds organic growth and algae will re-appear in a short period. It can also affect structural renders and finishes due to the high pressure involved. Clear and Clean only use safe low pressure to clean render.
Sanitising the exterior of your property can add so many benefits:
- Restore your render.
- Help prevent damage caused by organic growth.
- Reduce the risk of damp patches.
- Add selling power.
- Improve the look of you property.
New buildings can suffer massively from organic growth. The earlier you treat your render the easier it is to remove. Softwashing gently removes organic growth using chemicals or steam. Unfortunately if left these spore growths can cause staining to walls which will need additional cleaning for stubborn areas we will aid our cleaning by using Hot Steam. Our Mazzoni Hot Box can reach temperatures up to 150c with the pressure as low as 60 bar.
