Our Brick Cleaning Techniques
Vortex Brick Cleaning
Most often, we use a custom made Hodge Clemco Soft Clean vortex 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, 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, which allows us to use this technique both inside and outside of 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, as we did for brick cleaning and lime mortar restoration in Bexley.
