Façade cleaning for Oasis Academies

We were delighted to be asked to clean the façades of two Oasis Academy buildings, one in Bristol and one in Southampton. Oasis is one of the largest Multi-Academy Trusts in England. First created in 2004, it now has 48 academies located throughout the country serving over 25,000 young people. The Trust aims to offer exceptional education and raise the bar for its students. Maintaining the academy buildings and ensuring that they provide a pleasant learning environment for students is an important part of delivering on their promise. 

Careful planning to meet required time frames

These were both sizeable buildings and, as is often the case with school projects, work needed to be completed within a specific time slot over the summer break, ready for the start of the new school year. It also needed to be planned and implemented so as to not clash with other projects and activities taking place over this period. We allocated a team of dedicated operators to each project to help ensure that work would be completed well within the required time frames.

Our safe and reliable render cleaning process

Both building façades have been rendered to achieve a smooth surface which looks great, however over time the surface can become discoloured as a result of environmental and organic pollutants. Render cleaning requires a careful approach; too much pressure can break the integrity of the surface, whilst excess water can permeate the render, both can cause damage. We are experienced in cleaning rendered façades and have developed a very successful three-step cleaning process that achieves great results without compromising the render.

  • First we clean the surface using pressurised steam at 150°C at a low 40 Bar pressure which delivers a gentle but impressive clean, and ensures that all surface dirt and algae deposits are effectively removed.
  • Next we treat the surface with a special biocide render wash to kill algae and moss, and help inhibit regrowth.
  • A final pass with pressurised steam ensures that we leave the façades looking brilliantly clean. 

Our process ensures that the surface integrity of the render is not broken or compromised. It has been officially approved by leading manufacturer Sto Render, but works equally well across all types of render. Our client was delighted by both our reliable and efficient service and the brilliant cleaning results that we achieved.
