The TORC and JOS systems are both powerful tools used by property maintenance contractors all over the world. If you’ve been seeking out a solution to the masonry stains plaguing your building, or have been troubled by that stone cleaning job in need of carrying out, you’ve likely come across them both during your research. If so, you might be wondering what sets them apart, and, more importantly, which is the best. As a trusted name in the stone stain removal UK industry, we at Spectrum are ideally positioned to fill you in on what you need to know.
In the most basic terms, the TORC cleaning system is a cutting-edge method of cleaning and restoring structures and property exteriors. It’s incredibly effective for stone cleaning, masonry cleaning, ceramic, concrete and more. However, unlike many methods of stone stain removal UK contractors tend to use, it does not present a risk of inadvertent property damage. At Spectrum, we specialise in caring for heritage stone buildings, which is why we champion the TORC cleaning system and its gentle yet powerful capabilities.
Rather than brute-forcing results with a scorching, high-pressure spray, the TORC system makes use of a gentle swirling vortex, made possible with sensitive controls and a modular nozzle attachment (available in aperture sizes from 5 to 13mm) which can be adapted to suit a range of environments—from intricate statues to vast, flat structures. Used properly, it can achieve dazzling results, gently lifting a wide array of masonry stains, chemicals and unsightly buildup with no adverse effects on the structure’s integrity. We’ll explore its various applications later.
Contrary to how it may appear, there is actually very little water used by the device, roughly 25 litres per hour. Instead, the machine uses a mixture of water, gentle air pressure and fine inert granules to catch and lift off the offending buildup, leaving buildings and structures considerably drier than those treated using other methods.
While often placed alongside TORC cleaning as a viable stone cleaning method, JOS cleaning is actually its predecessor. It was designed with the same principles in mind: a swirling vortex motion and the use of fine, inert granules. However, JOS cleaning is known for using far larger quantities of water, around 45 litres per hour, making it a less practical and environmentally-friendly method of stone, mortar or masonry cleaning. While JOS cleaning can still achieve satisfactory results, it is undeniably inferior to the newer TORC cleaning system.
While the TORC system is the superior stone, mortar and masonry cleaning system, both the TORC and the JOS machine have an impressive number of uses for cleaning, maintaining and restoring structures to their former grandeur.
