Why torc matters when
cleaning blocks and brick
brick cleaning system
We gently remove the surface layer without damaging the substrate.
It is also very important to understand what needs cleaning off of the bricks, whether that be cement, graffiti, paint, organic matter or atmospheric pollutants. Each needs the correct cleaning method to remove it without causing any damage to the brick face.
The softer approach usually works best as TORC steam cleanswith superheated water instead of high pressure cold water, which if used too close to the brick will cause permanent unwanted damage.
Regenerate your property and preserve the future
The natural stone and historic brickwork on your property is much like a sponge – over time it is able to absorb atmospheric pollutants like carbon and sulphur, particularly if you are in a region of heavy coal burning.
Not only does this dull the appearance of your building, but it limits the ability to release trapped moisture. This can lead to spalled bricks and cracked stonework where the moisture freezes in the winter months.
Gentle & Caring Cleaning
Competitors are likely to use industrial sandblasting equipment. Whilst these are effective at removing the surface layer of pollutants, these setups have almost no modulation and can very quickly destroy sound stone and brickwork, removing their details. Our expertise before cleaning is in Stonemasonry, having spent decades working on and restoring historic and delicate buildings. We know exactly how to care for them and repair them.
