There are several ways that brickwork cleaning restoration can be completed. Here at S.J. Pointer, we opt for the environmentally friendly, non-destructive solutions.
Steam Brick and Stone Cleaning Method
DOFF system is a non-chemical, environmentally friendly, brick and stone cleaning technology. This modern method of cleaning uses high-temperature steam to remove a biological matter and paint. As the Doff System uses super-heated steam, it kills spores, so there is no need to use chemicals during the removal process or as a protection against the further biological activity.
Absolutely no damage to the surface
We use the DOFF system to clean surfaces such as brick, stone, concrete, faience, tiled (glazed and encaustic) and terracotta. There is no damage to the substrate, as the temperature of superheated water is high; the pressure on the cleaned surface is low.
Vortex Brickwork Cleaning
The Vortex Cleaning Method is the gentlest technique to clean delicate surfaces. For this technique different fine cleaning materials as stone powder, calcite, olivine is used, depending on the various surfaces to be treated. A special part in the nozzle brings compressed air into the rotation. Air flows through the nozzle like in a cyclone. The particles of blasting material hit the surfaces with low impact and clean it while they are rotating above it. It is erasing dirt from the surface instead of hitting it with high pressure, which saves it from damage. This principle works with different fine cleaning materials as stone powder, calcite, olivine, etc., depending on the various surfaces which have to be treated.
Sodablasting Brickwork Cleaning
Sodablasting is a non-destructive method for many applications in cleaning such as oil removal, paint varnish stripping, removing paint from brick and brick cleaning. The blasting material particles are blasted against a surface using compressed air. It’s such a gentle method of cleaning, that is used for teeth cleaning at the dental office.
We use described restoration techniques to provide the highest quality brick cleaning service. Throughout the process, we strive to achieve the highest aesthetic and technical standards, requiring the most careful craft.
