Brick Cleaning

Are you looking for a brick cleaning and restoration service to clean, preserve and bring back your existing brickwork to its former glory? Then you have come to the right place. That is because here at Spectrum, our team of specialist engineers can use a range of cutting edge techniques to do just that.

First, let us take a closer look at just what brick cleaning is, how it works and how it could transform the look and lifespan of your building.

What is Brick Cleaning and when is it Required?

To put it simply, brick cleaning is the process by which bricks and brick masonry are cleaned. Brick masonry is when a layer of bricks has been placed on the outermost wall of a building to offer protection.

Brick cleaning will be required at intervals over the period of a building’s lifespan. It should also take place whenever any renovation or extensions are being added to help the building blend in. After construction works, bricks can often get scuffed or marked with cement and may need cleaning to help the new areas settle in.

It is also required on older buildings where dirt, grime, algae or paintwork have caused the bricks to look old and tired. This is especially true of buildings in large cities like London, where pollution and vandalism can be an issue. Damp weather can also encourage algae and moss to grow, which can cause problems and cause brickwork to look unsightly.

How do Brick Cleaning Services work?

The surface of brickwork is rough and porous, so dirt and grime can get in and accumulate. Over time this can cause discolouration and staining, which can ruin the appearance of the brickwork.

It can be tempting to just go at your brickwork with a pressure washer, but this is not advised. This is because these jet washers exert too much pressure on the bricks and can crack or erode the top layer. It can also force more water into the brick, which can expand at colder times and cause further cracking. All of which will result in further costs down the line.

That’s why it is always best to go for a professional brick cleaning service like ours here at Spectrum. In addition, much of the cleaning work takes place at height, and our specially trained team can operate using access equipment to give them the best possible cleaning position on any building.

However, that’s not all you get when you choose Spectrum. Here are a few more things you can expect from our services.

What Can Brick Cleaning Be Used For?

Remove Paint
From Your Brickwork

Using Steam from our doff steam cleaning machines we can safely remove paint without damaging the brickwork underneath the paintwork. Pressure Washers will struggle to remove Paint as effectively and are likely to cause damage to the brickwork during the process.

Waterproofing
Brickwork

After your brick cleaning has is completed, we can apply a transparent coating that seals your bricks to make them watertight. Especially if there has been water damage in the affected area, this can be a great way to preserve the bricks further after water bricks have been cleaned and staining on the bricks removed.

Remove Graffiti
From Brickwork

If your brick is covered in graffiti, our specialist cleaning solutions and techniques will enable us to remove any trace without causing damage to the brick.

Brick Restoration
And Pointing

If your brickwork has suffered from water damage Spectrum can restore the brickwork to its natural look and feel. We will first roughly clean the bricks and expose masonry surfaces. We will point out the masonry between the bricks where necessary and mix the correct amount of cement and even mix in colouring if required to blend into the existing colour of the masonry in the bricks.

Needle Gun
Restoration

Some internal Brickwork is finished with a needle gun to give a worn and older looking texture which can bring out beautiful characteristics to the brickwork. It is a delicate process that requires care and experience not to damage the bricks or to take away too much of the brickwork.

The process can also be used to bring back some new life to the bricks, especially if they are tired, or if they have had water damage.

Using our brick steam cleaning machines, we can safely remove paint without damaging the brickwork underneath. We can also work to remove stubborn graffiti without causing any long-term damage to the brick surface.

Waterproofing Brickwork

After your brick cleaning has been completed, we can apply a transparent coating that seals your bricks to make them watertight. This is recommended, especially if there has been water damage in the affected area. It is a great way to preserve the bricks further after staining has been removed. This will add to the lifespan of the bricks and keep them looking better for longer.

Brisk Restoration and Pointing

If your brickwork has suffered from water damage, we can restore the brickwork to its natural look and feel. We will first clean the bricks and expose any masonry surfaces. Then we will point out the masonry between the bricks where necessary and mix the correct amount of cement. We can even mix in colouring, if required, to match the existing colour of the masonry bricks for a seamless transition.

Needle Gun Restoration

Some internal brickwork is finished with a needle gun to give a worn and more mature-looking texture. This can bring out beautiful characteristics in the brickwork. It is a delicate process that requires care and experience to ensure that no damage is done to the bricks, and that not too much brick is removed.

The process can also be used to bring some new life back to the bricks. This is especially useful if they are tired or have suffered water damage over time. If you are remodelling an interior space and want to create beautiful exposed brick surfaces, this is a great treatment for helping you to achieve it.

Whatever your brickwork needs – whether you want to clean old and tired-looking bricks or match in new brickwork to look the same as older areas, our team of experts can help you do it. Using our specialist access skills and years of working with brickwork and masonry, we can bring new life to your interior and exterior walls.

Did your parents ever say: "it's what is on the inside that matters"?

Mine certainly did! But what they didn't realise, is that the same principle applies also to stone buildings! 😄

If you took a microscope and examined the inside of every individual brick and block of stone constituting the facade of your building, you would see a variety of chemical processes taking place! It is because of the presence of moisture (the water cycle), naturally occurring salts together with surface atmospheric pollutants such as carbon and acid rain and their interactions that your building starts to look aged and become structurally unstable.🏠

Who would have thought that is under the surface of a beautiful building like this?🤔

They say "April showers bring May flowers", but what they don't know is that April showers can also bring unsightly white staining on brick property's called efflorescence! 😣

Efflorescence stains occur in brickwork where the normal escape of water vapour via the mortar is impeded because the cement mortar has hardened to the extent that it is no longer breathable. These stains worsen through the additional moisture contributed from rain and snow.🌧

Luckily these stains are not irreversible, though! Through several treatments with a DOFF machine, our team is able to remove signs of this stain! Visit our website to learn more:

Did you know buildings breathe?🤔

Now I know you may be thinking "Lucian, what are you going on about- buildings don't breathe!", but hear me out. The most common materials used to build the old buildings we see around the country are stone and brick.

The concept behind the construction of these old buildings is that moisture entering the wall should be able to evaporate. This need for evaporation, or breathability, is why it is structurally important for stone and brick exteriors to be clean and rid of any stains!👊

If you are interested in learning about how we remove stains and organic matter that inhibit the breathability of stone, I recommend visiting Spectrum's Stone Cleaning service page here: https://www.spectrumspecialistsupport.co.uk/stone-cleaning-contractors/
