Why do we recommend cleaning stains on stone with high-temperature steam instead of pressure?
1. Unlike pressure, steam will not leave hairline cracks on the substrate's surface.
2. Steam kills and draws out the organic matter in the pores of the substrate.
3. As steam is gentle, it can effectively clean your stone without harming the stone's patina

We often discuss how we utilise the powers of DOFF and TORC machines to clean stone facades, but what is the difference between these cleaning methods??
1. The DOFF machine emits extremely heated steam to clean masonry, while the TORC machine utilises a swirling vertex of compressed air, fine abrasion and water.
2. The DOFF machine is our preferred method for cleaning the majority of stains and organic matter from stone buildings.
3. We utilise the TORC machine, though, when the stains are deeply ingrained into the pores of the stones, including efflorescence!

Experiment time! Take a piece of string and pull it as hard as you can until it snaps. Now take two pieces of string and pull them- which one was easier to break?
Just as two strings are stronger when pulled than one, we have found that combining two cleaning systems when removing deep stains on stone and brick properties is better than just one! ?
By first applying the steam from a DOFF machine and then the swirling vertex from a TORC/Jos machine, we are able to remove deeply engrained stain from even the most porous of property facades! ?

Are yellow, orange, or green patches growing on the stone elements of your property?
These are most likely spores- microscopic organic matter that floats in the air and builds on porous surfaces. You can try to paint over it, but that most likely will only be a short-term fix as it traps moisture and forms unappealing blisters.?
A few years ago, I tested every method under the sun to try to find the best solution for removing spores. The best solution I found was the extremely heated steam from a DOFF machine! To make this system more effective, I even developed and patented brushes to use with the DOFF machine!?

One of the most rewarding parts of being in property maintenance is getting to see what lies underneath years of grime and wear. ?
While the results may not always be immediate, it can be remarkable what can be unveiled after applying some extremely heat steam from a DOFF machine!
