Green algae on render ? 

The good thing about the green algae is at this stage it is very easily cleaned. We do this useing our bi0degradable biocides and low pressure application system (softwashing). The algae at this stage of growth leaves little or no residual staining of the render. Cleaning the render at this stage is the cheapest option.

We have several options for access ,Domestic render can be cleaned from the floor or a  small scaffolding tower. Commercial and industrial render can have access issues. All our operatives are trained at working at height and have IPAF licences. We also have access to IRATA absailing teams.

Phototrophic microorganisms (algae, cyanobacteria) can grow on stone surfaces or may penetrate the pore system of the stone itself. Phototrophic microorganisms have a direct effect on the deterioration of stone due to their pigments which cause an aesthetically detrimental effect.

Filamentous cyanobacteria (Nostoc sp, Leptolyngbia sp., Stigonema ocellatum) and green algae (Desmococcus olivaceus and Haemaotococcus pluvialis) are capable of forming dense mucous-like layers on surfaces which produce characteristic colourations on the substrata.
Nostoc. sp can produce blackish-green pigmentation which leaches into the substrate on which it is growing. The algal species Desmococcus olivaceus produces bright green colouration of buildings as shown below.
