K-Rend and Render Cleaning
The external building surfaces on commercial, retail and industrial properties are subjected to the harsh UK weather. Many new or modern buildings have been built using K Rend all through coloured render to enclose the external surfaces. This k render protective render is a quick and cost effective material, however is subject to growth of algae and moss which can cause the exterior of the building to look very unsightly in just a few years. If left untreated, the algae and most build up can cause deep routed staining in forming a red, green or black algae. This algae should be treated to kill off the moss and algae spores to remove the algae stain.
If this is left untreated this discoloration can cause damage to the surface of the building k render, leaving more of an eyesore than the algae growth. Property owners and management companies are advised to employ the services of a specialist k render cleaning company in order to ensure that damage and further staining is not incurred.
