Brick Cleaning by Cheshire Pointing
The aim of brick cleaning is to remove dirt and staining that has deposited on brickwork. We can restore and clean the brickwork without damaging the brick itself, or pointing (the bits between bricks!).
What do we do?
After suitable preparation (sheeting windows, etc) we apply specially formulated brick cleaners (brick acid) to the surface, and this is thoroughly worked in and rinsed off. The end result will be to reveal the original colour and texture of the brick-face.
New Build Problems
New brickwork can be visually spoiled by efflorescence, mortar staining, mismatching brickwork and other issues; however we can undertake rectification of much or all of these issues.
Efflorescence is basically caused by excess moisture from an external source causing salts to be deposited on the surface of masonry. These deposits are visually unattractive and in most cases can be successfully removed and even neutralised.
Potential attractive brickwork can be spoiled by poor quality smeared pointing, accidentally damaged pointing affected by rain when still wet, or just out and out sloppy work. In either case we can clean aggressively to reveal the original brickwork.
