Home Owner

7 Points to remember when caring for your new Unitex rendered home:

  1.  Due to the rough surface, cleaning of the surface at an early stage is often ineffective.
  2. Once the Unitex Applied Surface Finish is dry, it can be surface cleaned of airborne dusts etc with a light water hose wash. For a better clean, warm soapy water in a low pressure sprayer can be used once a year in Summer.
  3. Under no circumstances should the surface be rubbed (with a brush) or abraded.
  4. The Uni-Trowel Décor product can be over-coated at any stage with the Unitex Uni-Flex Membrane, or the Unitex Uni-PTC, in a light fast colour of your choice.
  5. A Uni-Flex membrane, or a Uni-PTC, coating is a high build flexible acrylic coating imparting a Matt effect to the wall surface.
  6. It is advised to not have garden sprayers, soil, or shrubs directly against the wall or above the damp coarse line.
  7. The above recommendation will help you in maintaining your Unitex Surface Applied Finish at its best.
