Recently had house re-rendered with Jub finish render but when it came to drilling holes to refit my alarm box, due to it being very windy red brick dust blew over a section of the render causing it to stain. What's the best method to clean the affected area or will I be forced to paint over it?

If the colour in the bricks is from iron oxide (quite possible as it's used a lot in ceramics etc.) then you could well be out of luck as far as removing it.

I think the only thing really worth trying would be some warm soapy water and a scrubbing brush, (start at the bottom in case it makes it worse).

On 2nd thoughts, the stain is just a deposit of powdered brick.
If the scrubbing brush & water don't get it off then try a quick blast from the pressure washer!
