Most dirt and grime on rendered surfaces is a result of the colonisation of algae, lichen, fungi, moss or mould that gives rise to unsightly staining. Soft washing is used to clean renders and then periodically maintain them. See what a difference it can make above.
Soft washing makes use of two different biocides - both fully approved by the UK Health & Safety Executive - to keep rendered surfaces free from colonisation for up to three years, much longer than power washing which will re-colonise very rapidly because it cannot kill the spores that seed new colonisation.

Frequently asked questions
If you allow the windows to dry themselves, won't that leave water marks?
So called "water marks" are actually created, not by the water itself, but by the impurities contained within water that get left on the glass when the water evaporates.
Will I notice the difference the first time you visit?
Not necessarily. Cleaning your windows using the traditional method will have left a layer of residue over the glass to which dirt clings. Our method of cleaning breaks down this layer and actually draws dirt to the surface that may have been missed for months or even years. It may take up to three cleans to fully remove this layer of dirt and leave your windows perfectly clear.
How do you purify the water?
The water is first softened to minimise wear and tear on the very fine filters that are used through the rest of the process. The water is then passed through a series of filters each designed to refine the water more than the previous one. The final stages of filtration utilise a method known as "reverse osmosis" ... we could explain what that is but we would need another three pages, all you need to know is that this method removes all organic, bacterial or particulate impurities from the water. By the end of this process the level of impurities in the water has dropped to below 30 parts PER MILLION!
But that's not enough for us ... to produce the best possible finish we need the purest possible water. To produce this the water goes through one final stage known as "de-ionisation" ... again, it's very complicated, but think of it as filtering on an atomic level, it makes sure that even the last few atoms of impurities are removed from the water. After this stage the impurities in the water have dropped to below 1 part per million. Only in certain scientific research facilities will you find water that is much purer than this. Now we are ready to clean your windows!
Why don't you use detergent?
Traditional window-cleaning methods require some agent to lift the dirt away from your windows. That is the purpose of the detergent. Unfortunately, the traditional method of simply blading the glass without rinsing means that a thin residue of detergent is then left on your windows, this becomes sticky and in time actually attracts more dirt. The purified water used in our system literally absorbs dirt, removing the necessity for any extra cleaning agent. It also leaves your windows free of any residue meaning that they will stay cleaner for longer.
