About Our Company

Expert render cleaning services

If your rendered walls are showing signs of red, green, black staining, this is due to the accumulation of biofilm. With the simple process of softwashing, mitieclean can effectively treat and clean areas without the need for expensive painting and without potentially damaging pressure or steam washing techniques.

Our process works on any and all effected substrates, such as K-Rend, Sto-Rend, Weber, Parex render, or even cement render or pebble dash. mitieclean can expertly remove all contamination present on the exterior of your property or building.

By using non-aggressive techniques, mitieclean can methodically and effectively remove the unattractive red, green or black streaks and stains from your exterior walls and elevations, while removing the infection. This cleansing effect ensures longer lasting results than power washing alone.

If your property would benefit from a deep clean that effectively kills and treats algae, bacteria & lichen then call or fill in our contact form today and we will appraise your building presenting all available options to you.

We are based in South Cumbria yet cover the whole of the North West and beyond.

What is biofilm?

Why does it form?

In the past 30 years the use of render & dashing become very popular largely due to being low maintenance. The introduction of cavity insulation meant that less heat from the house escaped ensuring render & dashing retained more moisture. This moisture becomes a breeding ground for biofilm.

In a matter of time, a biofilm forms and begins to reproduce, slowly colonising surfaces making them appear dirty. The process starts with the formation of algae, which use carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere & sunlight as their energy & carbon sources. This algae then comes a source of food for heterotrophic organisms (most bacteria and all fungi) and all together form the cocktail of microbial colonisation called biofilm.

All biofilm forming microorganisms cause biodeterioration and degrade stone or render mechanically, chemically and aesthetically through the metabolic activities and biomineralization process in these biofilms. Plainly put, biofilm causes decay to building materials over time.
