Efflorescence is a very common problem and one that we can clean away.
It is caused by salts being released from within any porous surface such as brick or stone, although it is cleanable with the correct knowledge, chemicals and equipment – it will always normally return as more salt makes its way to the surface.
In February 2020 we were tasked with the cleaning of the brick along with all stone work at a property in surrey.
Access to the front of the building was via cherry picker and in the single day the from of this stunning property was transformed.

In March 2019 we were asked to carry out stone cleaning in Gerrards cross by a home owner – the results speak for themselves.
After cleaning we treated the stone with a biocidal wash to help keep the stone cleaner, for longer.
In January 2019 we were contacted by a building company regarding some emergency paint removal, London was the location of the site and we attended the very next day.
There were 18 brackets with this problem, over three floors of a scaffolded building. All were cleaned to this standard in a single working day.
We offer a consulting and project management service to other external cleaning companies, whereby we bring the expertise and equipment to your projects.
We operate another website www.londongraffitiremoval.co.uk showing our expertise in Graffiti Removal from all types of surfaces, including brick and stone.
We successfully removed bright red spray paint from very old and delicate white limestone at Bow Street Magistrates Court.
Efflorescence is caused by salt being released from the brick & stone.
We remove Efflorescence by using specialist chemicals along with super heated water and ceramic steam cleaning technology.
The process can be very time consuming, depending on the extent of the Efflorescence.
White staining on brickwork can be caused by a number of things including Efflorescence and calcium.
We have the expertise and equipment to remove the worst of the staining if not completely remove the staining.
We use the same specification steam cleaning technology as used inside a DOFF branded machine – which is the brand of stone cleaning machine authorized for use by English Heritage.
Stone is cleaned with less than 100 bar of pressure in conjunction with super heated water, heated to 150 degrees.
Chemicals are used for some projects, which again are safe for use on both brick and stone.
This all means that we don’t need to blast your building with super high pressure – steam cleaning does the heavy lifting, gently.
Of course, we can apply a biocide to the brick or stone after cleaning.
These porous substances absorb the biocide into them and repel organic growth for 12 months or longer.
