Whether it’s a domestic house or an office building, just by looking at the size of the job it can quickly become apparent that brick cleaning can be a daunting task.
Many different types of bricks can suffer from different levels of dirt, algae or pollutant staining . This means there is not one answer to fit all circumstances when looking for the best way to clean brick walls.
Here are some of the reasons why you should use a professional brick cleaning company.
Brick Wall Cleaning – Expertise
As we mentioned, no two walls are the same. An expert eye will be able to determine the best type of cleaning method for your specific type of staining and brick.
For example, common bricks absorb more water than clay and require a different approach. More often than not, a gentle scrub with water by hand is not enough to remove all the dirt, but too much pressure can leave lasting damage to the brickwork. A professional will be able to determine the right balance to make sure the job is done thoroughly, obtaining a great result without damaging your brickwork.
Using a professional company also ensures that cleaning high-level brickwork is completed by experienced hands – we can use a mobile scaffold tower or powered access platforms depending on what is more suitable for your building.
Cleaning Brickwork – The Right Equipment
Not only do the professionals know what they are doing, but they know what equipment and chemicals to use when cleaning brickwork.
For a gentler clean on more fragile brickwork Doff steam cleaning or Thermatech steam cleaning is often used. Sometimes a pressure washer is necessary, but only if the brickwork is not at risk of damage. Even manual brushing can damage soft brick types so you need to make sure the right equipment is used at all times.
Brick Cleaning – It’s Hard To Do It Alone
You’ll need more than a ladder and many people do not own one that is large enough for the job anyway and pressure washing is a tiring job.
The other equipment involved in brick cleaning can be difficult to hire, expensive, and hard to operate. Especially if you do not know how to use it properly. This can make the job hazardous so be sure that you know how to carry out the job safely before you start.
A professional will always be able to ensure the rest of your property is protected whilst the work is ongoing, this alone can be difficult to do when you haven’t done it before.
Brick Cleaning Companies – It Adds Value To Your Home
Brick cleaning might be one of the most cost-effective ways of adding value to your property.
Less expensive than a new driveway or conservatory, it can make your property eye-catching and create an excellent first impression. It usually takes only a couple of days or a week to complete the job. If you have impending viewings to think about, we can arrange for our staff to get the job finished in time.
The Dirt On Your Brickwork Is Worse Than You Think
Because pollution affects all the buildings on a street, it can be hard to see just how bad the dirt is.
Once the work is complete you will see a real transformation, making your property stand out. If you have special detailing that is being spoilt, or heritage bricks that look unsightly then removing the dirt should be something to consider.
Some soiling can be so extreme that it is resistant to certain brands of chemical cleaning products. On the other hand, some types of bricks can be susceptible to damage if the wrong approach is used.
