Render cleaning in Leckhampton Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

SkyLine SoftWash were called in to look at a large property in Cheltenham in Gloucestershire.

On driving into the property it was apparent that the property was cover in red algae growth which was really letting this lovely home down.

Algae can be a huge problem for render, render is a porous product designed to breathe so as soon as micro-organisms take hold the spread and grow rapidly.

SkyLine SoftWash plan was to make this home beautiful once again!



The process was simple, Following the proven methods used in our training from SoftWash Systems we started work on pre-watering and protecting the plant life and landscape.

Algae is a microorganism which is very similar to a plant, whatever is used to kill and sanitize the area can potentially kill any plant life too… So its always important when cleaning render to have your plants and landscape protected when render cleaning is in progress.

Once the prep stage was complete we moved on to the SoftWash using a SoftWash Blend system which blends safely the correct amount of bleach and greenwash “biocide” which has proven to be a great success in giving phenomenal results.

During the render cleaning in Cheltenham, it was apparent that the Red Algae was extremely stubborn and deep-rooted into the render so took patience and determination to beat it..


It was a bit of a battle but as you can see from the before and after pictures SkyLine SoftWash really did make this home beautiful once again.

Once the SoftWash render cleaning was complete we moved onto the SoftWash patio and DOFF steam cleaning of the walls around the tulips.

Due to the Tulips being very special all the way from Amsterdam, it was important to our client that no chemicals came near them to minimize the potential for any plant damage.. Using the DOFF Integra, we finished off with the walls and coping stones using the 150-degree steam to kill any remaining spores, lichen, and molds leaving the patio and stonework in immaculate condition.

Finally, We followed protocol using Plant wash which Adds back vital nutrients at the base of the plants, helping beneficial bacteria to repopulate the soil.

Plant Wash is used as a final rinse to make absolutely sure every step has been taken to protect the customer’s landscape.
