Brick Cleaning

Brick cleaning Service
Our qualifications and over 20 years of experience cleaning bricks in London allow us to offer the highest quality brick cleaning restoration service which is safe for both the cleaned surface and the environment. There are many different brick cleaning appliances available. However, not every method is eco-friendly and safe for the cleaned surface. Unfortunately, some companies use extremely corrosive chemicals and highly abrasive sandblasting. Unlike them, here at S.J. Pointer, we choose to provide both professional and safe brick cleaning restoration services in London.

Our Brick Cleaning Techniques

Torbo SoftLine

When perfect brick cleaning result is needed, but also the protection and preservation of sensitive surfaces we use Torbo SoftLine – a state-of-the-art German technology allowing the removal of all types of dirt even on highly sensitive surfaces, such as e.g. natural stone and clinker brick.

Vortex Brick Cleaning

We also use a custom-made, technology originally developed in Germany, the “Jos” nozzle with Torbo SoftLine System. It is a ‘swirl-abrasive’ system for cleaning delicate surfaces, such as natural stone, faience or terracotta. This technique uses different fine abrasives such as stone powder, calcite, and olivine which mixed with water exits the nozzle in the vortex, which is pointed towards the substrate to be cleaned. The type of substrate determines which abrasive material we use.

Steam Brick Cleaning

The high temperature of superheated water removes algae, moss, fungi and other biological matter. The pressure of the steam is low, so there is no damage to the substrate. The temperature also kills spores. As a result, there is no need to use chemicals for protection against any further biological activity. The steam system is also perfect for removing paint from brick. You can read our case study of steam brick cleaning and flush brick repointing in Balham to learn how effective this method is.


This method can be performed through wet or dry cleaning, allowing us to use this technique both inside and outside the property. Blasting soda is an extremely brittle material that undergoes micro fragmentation on impact. It explodes away any surface materials, yet it does not cause any damage to the substrate. We use the sodablasting technique for masonry restoration to clean dirt and grease off the brick and remove efflorescence as we did for brick cleaning and lime mortar restoration in Bexley.
