Surface Materials

 

Brick

Over time brick work can become discoloured by atmospheric and organic pollutants which penetrate the surface and damage the structure. Regular cleaning helps preserve the exterior surface, extend the life of a building and dramatically improve its appearance.

Where Used

Where Used

Brickwork can become discoloured by atmospheric contaminants, especially in city centres or where there is a high volume of traffic. It is also subject to organic pollutants such as algae, lichen and moss which penetrate the surface and damage the structure. Where conditions are favourable, black and red algae will bloom making a building look dirty and uncared for.

Regular cleaning of brick work will extend the life of a building, preserve the exterior surface and dramatically improve the appearance of the building. 

 

Cleaning Method

Cleaning Method

We can clean brick work very efficiently and effectively using either pressurised steam or hot water. We always review and assess the state of the brick work prior to cleaning to gauge the most appropriate treatment and ensure that we achieve the best possible outcome whilst mitigating risk.

On historic buildings or more vulnerable brickwork surfaces we use SteamPLUS which allows us to achieve outstanding results without damaging the surface. SteamPLUS delivers pressurised steam - which cleans the surface without the force associated with water. This significantly reduces the risk of damaging the surface of the brick. The high temperatures of the steam eradicates spores helping prevent regrowth of algae, mosses or lichens. SteamPLUS uses a lower volume of water which also allows the surface to dry more quickly.
