Restorative Techniques offer a specialist consultancy service on safe and effective methods for both render cleaning and cladding cleaning.
Render is a popular coating to twentieth-century brickwork and some stone-built houses, typically designed to improve their damp-proofing and thermal insulation properties.
However, it has a tendency to attract bacterial growth and lichen, and needs periodic cleaning.
We can advise on and supply equipment for render cleaning, from historic lime render through to modern silicone render, such as K-Rend.
The cladding of both new and older apartment blocks and office buildings with large panels for enhanced insulation purposes as well as for purely cosmetic reasons has been a marked trend of the early 21st century.
Effectively cleaning cladding poses a certain challenge because it is desirable to avoid using excessive volumes of water so as to reduce the risk of problems caused by water leaking under the surface of the cladding.
We can advise on effective and safe protocols for the cleaning of modern cladding materials, and supply poultices suitable for cleaning silicone leaching between panels.
