How to soft wash pebble dash (dry dash) wall render

Soft washing pebbledash (dry dash) wall render

In this video (click below) Ben demonstrates how to treat pebble dash (aka "dry dash") render with Benz Bio Cleanze.

The render will become progressively cleaner over the coming year because the natural cleaning effect of a Bio Cleanze treatment continues to deep clean over time. And it adds residual protection against re-colonisation.


Quick tips:

  1. Pebble dash is delicate and must be treated with care because the pebbles can easily be loosened and detached by too vigorous brushing.
  2. The principles of soft washing pebble dash render are similar to soft washing sand & cement render – in that the approach needs to be different to soft washing common through colour render such as KRend and Weber.
  3. For faster results on very heavy colonisation of dry dash render, pre-treat with Bio Cleanze at 30:1 and follow up with a treatment of Lightning Cleanze after two months (winter) or one month (summer).


Btw:
 If the render remains seriously discoloured and damp after a soft wash treatment there is a possibility that it could be rising damp. If you think this is the case, which is very rare, check for rising damp and advise your customer to call a specialist.
