Keep Your Building Looking Clean and Professional with Red Gable Cleaning
Protect Your Property from Harmful Fungus Growth
Fungus on buildings is a common problem that can cause significant damage to the structure and aesthetics of your property. The dark or black staining from melanin can make your building look unattractive and dull. However, the fungus isn’t just an eyesore; it can cause serious harm to the materials that make up your property.
Fungi are genetically more closely related to animals than plants and can thrive in wet and damp environments. They produce acidic enzymes that dissolve the surface of your property, leaving it vulnerable to further damage. Leaking downpipes and overflowing gutters can make the situation worse by keeping the area wetter for longer.
Fungi do not produce their food, but instead obtain it from dissolved minerals. They combine with algae to form lichens, which can be very difficult to remove.
At Red Gable Cleaning, we use our Softwash system to treat fungus effectively. Our process involves using biocide chemicals to kill the fungus within a few hours. However, the black staining can take several months to oxidise and become water soluable before it fades away.
Choose Red Gable Cleaning to keep your building free from the harmful effects of fungus. Our Softwash system is non-damaging and won’t harm the building fabric, leaving your property looking as good as new.
