Render Cleaning in Swansea- removing red algae on the Welsh Government Buildings


Please see photos of our recent project at the Welsh Government building in Swansea.

Render Cleaning Swansea- Cleaning and treating red algae on Welsh Government Buildings

This was a major render cleaning project in the Swansea area. The Welsh Government offices at Llys Y Ddraig had become contaminated with organic growth which was having a very detrimental effect on their appearance. They had been colonised by red algae, and this always requires specialist treatment to remove. Red algae is more complex than single cell green algae, and must be remove using Softwashing methods. Fortunately is is less pernicious than black mould and and red algae can be removed by a natural and risk free solution known as Safewash. This treatment kills the red algae at root system, and removes staining, leaving the substrate in optimum condition.

Red alage is particularly prevalent on the Western coastlines of England, Scotland, and Wales. It is blown across the Irish Sea, and the high salt content in the buildings substrate gives it plenty to feed off. If left untreated not only will the building look in poor condition, it will being overtime to cause damage to the substrate and threaten its integrity.

Softwashing UK were able to attend the offices at Llys Y Draig in order to clean, treat and restore them. Much of the work was completed from the safety of the ground, keeping risks to an absolute minimum. When access was required to reach the higher elevations our highly trained staff used specialist access equipment. The substrate was thoroughly treated with Safewash, killing the algae and removing all red staining. This restored the building to optimum condition.

All parties were absolutely delighted with the results of Softwashing UKs render cleaning services. The beauty of softwashing, especially on render substrates, is that it is able in most instances to return the render to an as new condition, and this was certainly the case at the Welsh Government offices in Swansea. As you can see from the photos all surfaces were left in amazing condition.
