Today we have been exterior cleaning in Lytham st Anne’s. This beautiful property belongs to a returning customer. there has been some quality workmanship used to create the patio and driveway area which makes it wonderful to clean. We also freshen up the render which on a property such as this is vitally important to the aesthetic. Render should be cleaned gently. Anyone who attacks it with a pressure washer should be stopped immediately! With a gentle softwash with a good quality biocide the biological growth will be killed and leave it fresh and white again. #rendercleaninglytham #rendercleaningpreston #rendercleaningformby #rendercleaninglancashire #rendercleaningaughton #rendercleaningparbold #rendercleaningrufford
I’ve just had a call from a gentleman who Requested a roof cleaning quotation. Our quote was £600. Another company has charged £150. It was brought to my attention that our price was too high and implied we were doing something wrong.
At DSgo we are very well aware that there are competitors in our industry. There are people doing a good job, people doing a terrible job and all in between. However it’s not difficult to be slightly put out by such a comparison. Our costs are out costs no matter what price the customer has in his mind what he wants to pay. For a days work for two men, this customer required a clean and treatment. So let’s break it down
Tax and national jnsurance
Fuel for the machines (everyone is aware of the rising cost of fuel)
Goof quality biocide to treat the roof. There is no way you get the same longevity when buying a cheap product
Labour for two men
The costs are hundreds of pounds more than £150. Therefore they would come away with nothing. If you want a cheaper job doing that’s ok. You as the customer have the right to choose. However, that doesn’t mean that we are doing anything wrong by doing things in a professional manner. Customers very often think about “what I thought it would have cost” we all do this as consumers. But that doesn’t mean we have a realistic view of a company’s ins and outs.
Choose your company. That’s ok. We really hope you get the deal you require from them. But DSgo are excellent at what they do. We have a fantastic reputation with our previous customers and always do a fantastic job. We very often go above and beyond in our service, we leave everywhere pristine and offer ongoing options. Most people would not expect us to do that for free. #dsgo
This customer woke up one morning, looked at her house and realised it was green. It had been progressively getting worse over a very wet winter and due to her living in a high biological growth area. Her question and one of many other customers is, should i paint it?
To the inexperienced, this seems like the only solution and when completed it can look great for a while. However you need to examine the reason for the change in colour.
Biological growth, red and green algae needs to be killed at the root stem. If you paint over it, the infection becomes trapped and will without fail show itself again in time. We can give a long term answer to the problem by applying a softwash solution that is applied gently and usually from the floor.
We have excellent results from this product and does give a long term solution to agressive algae.
When red algae dies, it secretes a carotene which can turn your walls bright red or orange in colour. But this is nothing to worry about and will dissipate with time.
DO not pressure wash the walls as this can spread the infection and although it may look clean to the naked eye, the spores will very quickly and agressively take hold again.

This change in colour happened almost immediately due to the weather helping us along and needless to say the customer was extremely pleased with the result.
