Types of services:

When it comes to brick cleaning, different types of damage require different cleaning approach.

Removing mosses, mould and mildew from brick

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.

1. Understanding Brick Types

There are a great number of different types of bricks and each type requires different cleaning techniques. For example clay brick types such as engineering bricks are extremely strong and they do not absorb  water.

The common brick type, on the other hand, is soft and absorbs water perfectly – something to consider when choosing the type of equipment for Brick Cleaning.

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 with professionals on time, forestalls expensive repair in the future.

Repointing brick

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 never preferred.

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.
