Brick & Stone Cleaning Services
We’ve been around brick cleaning, mortar restoration, concrete rejuvenation and the like for many years. We understand how damaging it can be when the wrong products are used when cleaning and the entire look and feel of a building or structure changes due to one section being cleaned irresponsibly.
The brickies of old took pride in their work, were masters of their craft, and produced some of the finest buildings in the world at the time. We follow in their footsteps and remove the veil of mortar from their work.
Best brick & stone cleaning solutions
Our cleaning system and method is all about retaining as much of the original material as possible. We actually do all kinds of mortar cleaning. For instance, a Victorian red brick building that was rendered with a concrete mortar in the seventies is not starting to look tatty. You could replaster the entire building but as much of the seventies’ mortar is falling off, there is not much for it to adhere to.
With the above, a common practice is to angle grind grooves into the existing mortar to allow for better adhesion, but this effectively ruins the beautiful red brick underneath for future restoration (although many developers care not – it’s all about swinging and selling it fast).
How we clean brick walls
With our non-intrusive approach and systems, we love nothing better than to see old brickwork cleaned and restored to its former glory. The brickies of old took pride in their work, were masters of their craft, and produced some of the finest buildings in the world at the time.
We follow in their footsteps and remove the veil of mortar from their work. Working a metre at a time, we painstaking uncover each section until the entire are or brick has been cleaned. The system we utilise uses a combination of superheated steam, water and soluble particles that are introduced to the area by means of a lance. The operator is covered head to toe in a respiration suit and the feed pipes are connected to as long as we need them and will even include high rise buildings.

- What stains can brick/stone cleaning remove?
Organic staining – The walls may have turned green with algae contamination.

Scaffold rash is where layers of building dust and staining can be seen on the brickwork where the scaffolding levels were erected alongside the brickwork. This can be very visible after the scaffolding comes down and the bricks need to be washed down.
Carbon staining – Also referred to as atmospheric pollution, this is where bricks turn black in colour on the face of the brick due to pollution staining.
- How much does brick or stone cleaning cost?
Brick and stone cost vary depending on the substrate and what is to be removed, whether, dirt, vegetation, carbon, efflorescence, graffiti. The costs would typically range from £35-£120 per m2
