What is TORC Cleaning?

The TORC system is a pioneering cleaning service that offers a complete stone cleaning solution. It creates a gentle, swirling vortex using a mixture of low air pressure, water and a safe, inert fine granulate.

This combination of compressed air, fine abrasion and water is best suited to the removal of brittle soiling and coatings. The TORC system is one of the gentlest yet most remarkable cleaning solutions available for stone, masonry and brick. It has evolved from the popular Jos system and, when used by our trained operators, it can deliver spectacular results.

That’s why it is the stone cleaning system of choice for historic stone restoration experts working on projects across the UK. It is also why we have added it to our list of preferred techniques here at Spectrum.

We have used the TORC system on multiple projects with great success. It leaves the brick and stonework in pristine condition, without causing any damage or degradation to the surface of the stone.

What Can TORC Cleaning Be Used For?

Paint
Removal

The Torc system can effectively remove most internal and external oil and water-based paints, varnishes, bitumastic and thermoplastics coatings. Without causing shock or harm to the substrate.

Graffiti
Removal

Using our experience to identify the substrate and required chemical we can ensure that not only is the graffiti removed but the surface is left undamaged.

Algae
Cleaning

With the use of industry-leading technology, we’re able to effectively and efficiently remove algae from all types of brick, stone or surface without the risk of damage to the substrate.

Carbon
Staining Cleaning

A build-up of carbon monoxide that settles into the surface of the substrate, eating away at the stone and altering the physical appearance, which once removed, allows the restored stonework to have an ‘as new’ and fresh look.

Limescale
Cleaning

The Torc system is a very effective way of removing years of limescale build-up to stone, cladding, bricks and more.

Oxidation &
Sulphate Cleaning

Metals such as bronze, brass and copper can cause staining. The Torc system will work to gently remove this staining and leave your building looking as good as new.

Bitumen And
Tar Removal

Bitumen is sometimes used as a weather-proofing or protective coating buildings. If it gets spilt or splashed on clean or natural stone façades, it creates a very unattractive look which can, in most cases, be completely removed using DOFF or TORC either as stand-alone machines or with mild chemical solutions.

Efflorescence
Removal

Efflorescence is a salty substance that is usually white/grey and powdery. It is found on many masonry surfaces. When water evaporates from the surface of the material it leaves behind these salty deposits (efflorescence).

Salt deposits can be easily removed with little to no damage and without leaving 'ghosting' or shadowing from the stains.

What the TORC System can do

The TORC system has become the go-to cleaning process when looking to achieve certain results or working with particular types of buildings. Below we have outlined just a few of the specific tasks it is most suitable for.

Paint Removal

The TORC system can effectively remove most internal and external oil and water-based paints, varnishes and bitumastic and thermoplastics coatings, without causing shock or harm to the substrate. So, if your building has previously been painted and you wish to return it to its original stone or brick finish, this is the system to choose.

Graffiti Removal

Graffiti can be a very inconvenient, annoying and expensive problem, and one that is out of your control. However, it can be removed and the stone or brick cleaned without any damage or degradation to the surface. The TORC system can be a very efficient way of cleaning graffiti. Using either chemical or mechanical solutions, various types of paint, such as spray paints, cellulose, lead-based, water-based and oil paints can be removed from a building's façade.

Algae Cleaning

Over time, and with the addition of moisture, algae can grow on stone or brick surfaces. It can also be very hard to remove. With the use of industry-leading technology, we are able to effectively and efficiently remove algae from all types of brick or stone surfaces without the risk of damage to the substrate.

Carbon Staining Cleaning

Carbon monoxide that settles into the surface of the substrate can build up and eat away at the stone. This will not only alter the physical appearance but can cause some damage to the exterior surface of the building. Using the TORC system we can remove the staining, with the restored stonework having an ‘as new’ and fresh look.

Limescale Cleaning

TORC cleaning is a very effective way of removing years of limescale build-up. We use the system for stone cleaning, as well as the removal of limescale from cladding, bricks and more.

Oxidation and Sulphate Cleaning

Metals such as bronze, brass and copper can cause staining over time. The TORC system will work to gently remove this staining and leave your building looking as good as new.

Bitumen and Tar Removal

Bitumen and tar are sometimes used as weather-proofing or a protective coating for buildings. If it gets spilt or splashed on clean or natural stone façades, it creates a very unattractive look. However, in most cases, it can be completely removed using TORC cleaning, either with stand-alone machines or with mild chemical solutions.

Efflorescence Removal

Efflorescence is a salty substance that is usually white or grey and powdery. It is found on many masonry surfaces. When water evaporates from the surface of the material it leaves behind these salty deposits. These can be easily removed with little to no damage and without leaving ‘ghosting’ or shadowing from the stains.

As you can see, the TORC system is a very flexible and effective way of restoring stone and brickwork to their former glory. If you would like to know more about the TORC system or to find out how it could help you to recover your brick or stonework, get in touch with a member of our team.

Our highly trained operatives will be able to work with you to establish your cleaning goals, and then create an action plan to deliver the very best results for your building.
