Stone & Brick cleaning


The natural stone and historic brickwork on your property is much like a sponge, over time it is able to absorb atmospheric pollutants like carbon and sulphur, particularly if you are in a region of heavy coal burning.
 

Not only does this dull the appearance of your building, but it limits the ability to breath trapped moisture back out. This can lead to spalled bricks and cracked stonework where this moisture freezes in the winter months.
 

With our TORC cleaning system, we gently remove this surface layer without damaging the substrate.

Materials matter

With our TORC cleaning system we gently remove this surface layer without damaging the substrate.
 

Our equipment differs from the competition in a few key areas:
Competitors will use industrial sandblasting equipment, whilst effective at removing the surface layer of pollution these setups have almost no modulation and can very quickly destroy sound stone and brickwork and remove their details.

Our TORC system is highly tuneable and thanks to it’s swirling motion at the nozzle it is gentle on your historic building.

Competitors may use kiln dried sand which creates plooms of hazardous airborne dust rich in silica.
We use many different types of high-quality blast media which are totally inert and safe for both the environment and our operatives. Combining this with the water added directly at the nozzle means we can minimize the mess involved for our customers.

Our background before cleaning is in Stonemasonry, this means we have spent decades working on and restoring historic and delicate buildings and know exactly how to care for them and repair them.
