Types of services:
When it comes to brick cleaning, different types of dirt require a different cleaning methods.
Removing mosses, mold and mildew from bricks
Mosses, mold or mildew often grows when one side of the brick wall is damp and other side of the wall receives little to no sunlight. Treating these damaged brick walls with chemical treatments help clear the growth and retain the aesthetic appeal.
Restoring water damage
Water damage is either caused by splashing back of rainwater or rising damp. When rainwater consistently beats against the brick block, the mortar gets drenched that results in breakage of the mortar joints or brick blocks.
Rising damp is often caused due to the leakage of ground water from underneath that leaves behind a tide line. While dampness over the tide line dissipates over time, the salt minerals that remain will cause the blocks and mortar to separate and break down. Due to changing seasons, freezing and defrosting cycles can speed up damage of the brick block.
Fixing the damage using a professional who knows what they are doing can help to prevent expensive repairs in the future.
When mortar joints become soft due to excess moisture and dampness, the brick wall breaks down due to cracks. Restoration of the bricks by repointing the brickwork becomes essential. This repointing method is adopted to restore historic buildings or older houses by carefully removing damaged mortar without disturbing the surrounding brickwork. And then applying layers of fresh mortar that match the existing shade.
Removing paint and graffiti from brick
Chemical treatments work best for removing paint and graffiti from the brick facade and are best left to professionals. Sandblasting causes lasting damage to the beauty and integrity of brick and is not the best option. The brick is rough in texture and sandblasting removes kiln-hardened outer layer of the brick, making it more susceptible to dirt build-up and moisture penetration which eventually leads to further damage.
Chemical treatments are suitable for cleaning brick buildings, walkways, stairs and other surfaces. Improper brick cleaning methods can cause damage to your masonry.
Waterproofing chimney or brick wall exposed to rain/or prolongs service life of the brick blocks. Water-resistant treatment keeps the wall unaffected by exposure to rain and moisture. It helps in preventing cracks or deterioration in the masonry caused due to seeping water.
