Brick Cleaning & Stone Cleaning Service in Kent

Brick & Stone Cleaning

Our brick & stone cleaning services include various methods for cleaning brick & stonework to remove contaminants such as general dirt and grime or biological matter including moss, algae, lichen, black spot and weeds from your property.

Cleaning stonework or brick work can be approached in several different ways, including:

  • Pressure washing (Also known as Jet washing) - High pressure cleaning

  • Power washing - High pressure cleaning incorporating hot water

  • Steam cleaning - Low pressure cleaning (helps to avoid the use of chemicals which is one of the reasons why it is the chosen method for restoration of historic heritage buildings under conservation orders)

  • Soft washing - Low pressure cleaning reliant on cleaning detergents

You may be wondering what contaminants you require removing from your exterior hard surfaces and what is the best method to use?

Depending on your situation a single cleaning method may be all that's required.  However, better results maybe achieved by utilising more than one method e.g. using steam along with soft washing to return surfaces back to their former glory.

The benefits gained by using Steam cleaning along with Soft washing are that brick or stone cleaned with steam will be cleaned in a delicate manner and soft washing surfaces post cleaning ensures any remaining organic spores invisible to the eye are neutralised and killed off.

Steam cleaning is one of the most commonly used stone cleaning methods used to clean historic structures, such as stone buildings as exceptional results are achieved and done so without the use of chemicals.

Simply removing all the weeds from a property will make a significant difference to the look of a property as will removing any organic growth such as moss or lichen from a stone building. But where such organic matter is/was present soft washing pre and/or post cleaning not only improves the final results, but the length of time surfaces remain free from their return is increased.

Not all contaminants are organic for example, atmospheric pollutants caused by air pollution such as carbon deposits, are another type of contaminant which plagues buildings especially in towns and cities.  If this is the case an entirely different approach is required and often involves a process of conducting tests in order to establish the best method of approach and identify the correct stone cleaners to use if necessary.

Natural Stone

Natural Stone

Natural stone differs from other man-made materials and requires a more delicate approach to cleaning.

Although natural stone is a very robust material, it isn't as tolerant to jet washing compared to other man-made materials commonly used in the construction of a building due to the damage high pressure cleaning can cause to the surface.

The cleaning process for cleaning a natural stone building requires the use of specialist, professional cleaning equipment for cleaning stone and should only be approached by professionals.
