Our Method For Cleaning Brick
There are a range of brick cleaning tools that our experts can use during a job, the choice of tool and method depends purely on the job at hand. Upon arrival our technicians will assess the situation and determine how they will complete the job to ensure you get the best results. Depending on the type of brick our technicians will adjust the cleaning regiment accordingly.
Pressure washing technology is the most common method of brick cleaning we use at Ideal Response. The water will break down and blast away anything on the surface of the brickwork. This method of cleaning is extremely quick and doesn’t require any cleaning chemicals. Depending on the size of the building, our technicians will likely complete the brick cleaning service in less than a day. We always prioritise our customers. We will work around your needs and complete the job as quickly as possible to reduce the amount disruption to your home or business.
Cleaning Delicate Property Surfaces
Certain properties, most commonly older properties, may have brittle or delicate brickwork. Attempting to clean this kind of brick with large volumes of water can potentially cause serious damage to your properties structure. This means that the previously mentioned method of brick cleaning is ruled out.
Upon inspection of the property and brickwork, our highly trained and accredited technicians will determine whether the brick cleaning service requires a specific piece of technology. This will protect it and still ensure excellent results. At Ideal Response we are licensed and accredited by Stonehealth to use their state-of-the-art cleaning technology.
The DOFF cleaning system utilises high temperatures to clean surfaces without risk of causing erosion damage to already brittle brickwork.
Cleaning Brick Walls Exterior
Typically, our technicians encounter the following factors which contribute to the discolouration and neglected appearance of a building’s brick exterior:
- General neglect: wear and tear that occurs over time
- Harsh weather: damp or humid conditions, buildings close to the coast
- Natural growths: algae, moss and other weeds, plants or fungi
- Modern day pollutants: traffic film, carbon deposits
Pollution levels are increasing within towns and cities across the UK. This results in residential and commercial buildings increasingly being exposed to pollutants. This not only alter a building’s appearance, but can also damage the architecture of a building. Repeated brick cleaning, alongside the use of specialist sealants, not only restores a building’s appearance but also helps to maintain a building’s external appearance.
Whether you are looking for a one-off clean or repeated brick cleaning there are a number of benefits. These benefits are not only cosmetic but also structural, certain types of dirt and growth can damage brickwork over a period of time. Our expert brick cleaning service will save you both money and more importantly time.
General dirt and pollutants are naturally corrosive and if left to settle on your properties brickwork can cause long-term structural damage. When it comes to bricks it may not be one specific issue that causes catastrophic structural damage but a combination of many smaller issues. The domino effect that multiple issues can cause will make your property visually unappealing and will potentially lead to very expensive and serious damage.
Damage From Organic Growth
Organic growth likes dark and damp conditions. Cracks and crevices in brickwork will provide the perfect condition for certain types of organic growth to take root and spread. Once again, this may not be an issue at first. However, over time the growth with cause cracks to spread and widen. When this happens it is no longer just a visual issue but a structural one too.
Hiring an expert brick cleaning company as soon as you notice organic growth or simply hiring Ideal Response to perform a regular service will ensure your brickwork is protected and looking it’s absolute best.
If you have noticed white patches on your exterior brickwork it is due to a build-up of salt in the porous material. This is what we refer to as efflorescence. There a two types of efflorescence, primary and secondary. Hiring an expert brick cleaning service provider is the best course of action, Ideal Response will remove any traces of salt build-up on your brickwork, leaving it looking refresh and clean.
In order to clean efflorescence from your properties brickwork we use the same methods for brick cleaning. No chemicals are used and depending on the condition of the bricks our technicians will decide which cleaning method is best suited to guarantee great results without overly saturating or damaging the bricks being cleaned.
