Carbon staining or Carbon deposits is a common problem on brickwork. On buildings that are near busy roads where the carbon monoxide emitted by the exhaust of the vehicles on the road gets onto and into the brickwork and this soot-like by-product can stain the brickwork and detract from the brick’s original appearance.
In order to remove the stains, the brickwork needs to be cleaned, either manually or using a machine. The manual method is by using a scrubbing brush, and the machine method is using a machine such as a pressure washer.
We at Stone Revival offer our brick cleaning services in and around the Yorkshire area for any domestic or commercial projects.
The presence of efflorescence (white-colored deposits on bricks) may cause damage to building materials and structures. When efflorescence forms, it’s usually because there are too many salts in the water in the air or the ground, such as in a parking lot or in a basement. Efflorescence can also form when water evaporates and gets trapped inside a brick, concrete, stone, stucco, or other building surfaces.
We are specialized in the complete removal of efflorescence from your building using the most modern techniques and equipment.

The bricks on your chimney are most prone to carbon deposits owing to the frequent exposure to soot. It’s important to remove the soot often because it can eventually cause permanent damage. Bricks on your chimney can also be subjected to Efflorescence, the white mineral deposits on the brick surface caused due to moisture moving through bricks. As a part of your home maintenance, your chimney needs to be inspected and cleaned regularly to ensure that it is in good working condition.
Just like the bricks on your chimney, the bricks around your fireplace are another carbon and Efflorescence magnet that will require professional help in cleaning. If you do the research on cleaning brick by yourselves, you’ll find a few different methods. Most people choose one of two: either scrub with a wire brush (which is very abrasive and requires care to avoid damage to your fireplace) or use a chemical solution (which can be irritating to your skin, as well as damaging to the fireplace) and is best recommended to hire a professional that offers brick cleaning services.
