Cleaning Textured Walls - Render & Pebble Dash

Cleaning Textured Walls

Textured wall coatings, pebble dash or even smooth painted areas do not regularly become coated with actual lumps of moss, normally they suffer from either dirt or staining the type of which can depend greatly upon the geographical area of the country and the cleaning process varies slightly depending upon the surface coating.

If you have a textured coating or pebble dash walls then you can undertake exactly the same processes, taking care with the amount of pressure you apply during pre-wash, application or rinsing.


Preparation

With all surfaces, preparation is the key to a successful job. With this type of surface, cleaning the old debris, staining and dirt is quite straight forward. There are, however, a number of options:

OPTION 1 - Depending upon the type of staining, you may find that wetting the area and brushing will remove a vast majority or even all of it. It may sound simple but sometimes this can be the most effective method.

OPTION 2 - Brush the area to remove any loose dirt etc. then spray with pH Neutral Surface Cleaner - Baticlean CR as detailed below.

OPTION 3 - If the area is suffering from black staining or stubborn dirt then more forceful measures may be required. Spray the area with HIGH POWER SURFACE CLEANER - Batifort. This is a strong alkaline cleaning product that will soften staining and debris on contact and should be left on the surface for 10-20 minutes. After this period the area should be washed with either a hosepipe and brush or, if possible, a SMALL pressure washer. The pressure washer not only rinses the product but also removes the staining from the surface.

Treatment

Once the surface has been cleaned and is dry apply a coat of BATICLEAN CR. This is designed to be left upon the surface where it can help to keep it free of dirt. Please remember that Baticlean CR should only be sprayed on to a DRY surface.


Future

If possible you should ensure that any leaking guttering or overflow pipes are in proper working order which will help to reduce staining on the surface. A new application of Baticlean CR every 12-18 months can help to keep staining at bay and as it doesn't require rinsing the process takes very little time and can really help to keep your surfaces clean.
