I know your thinking this is easy one but its not! :?

I (very stupidly) used adhensive foam in a rush to fill up a hole in the wall where an extractor fan used to be. Usually I am good at estimating how much to use but this time used too much.

It expanded right through the vent on the outside wall (of the house) and its poured some what down the wall.

Great, you'd think to scrap it off right? Wrong, its pebble dash!!!!!

HELP PLEASE!!!
What can I use to dissolve or lossen the foam from the pebble dash so I can painstakinly remove it

I know you can get foam remover like this

Haven't tried it myself though so I don't know how well it works.

I have seen this a few times and the reviews talk very highly of it.
But from what I can tell it's more of a paste that you put on and need to wipe off. That would be quite hard to do on pebble dash but if I need to I will.

I was trying to find a liquid of some sort that might soften the foam/ bond that I could hose down (not pressure wash) or even wipe off.

I have not tried that, I will have a read to see if it will damage the render/dash in any way.

Thanks.
