You've got to see these super photo's below ê
Just look at this stunning transformation below (and the other super brick cleaning photo's on this page). It shows how to get paint off brickwork or walls
It's another recent job we've done that I'm really proud of.
These two pictures are actually of the same building. In the first it looks derelict and run down. The paint is all flaky and falling off the bricks and it looks like it's seen better days. In the second, (following treatment) it looks pristine.
Now, look at them through the eyes of potential buyers or tenants.
If you were either, would you be impressed with the building or turned off and look elsewhere?
People only look at tatty places when they are looking for a cheap deal. It gives them more bargaining power if it looks run down. They've got more chance of screwing you on price.
Can you see how the cost of cleaning will be far less than the loss of income if it's left dirty and shabby?
Amazingly, the other day I saw a restaurant with a wall in that state, .
It overlooked the customer car park behind the building. You had to walk past it when you go in to eat. I remember thinking "I don't fancy eating there if they keep the building in that state. How dirty will the kitchen be?".
Now maybe that wasn't fair but it was what I thought. I wondered how many other potential customers walked away thinking the same thing?
Can you see how you could be losing money hand over fist if you try to sell, rent out or even trade from a building in this condition?
Think how much the value will increase if it's cleaned up like new. All you have to do is shift the flaky paint and dirt and you've got an attractive asset. And remember, it's us that do all the dirty work for you.
If you would like us to shift your ugly paintwork, please give us a call ( or E-mail me some photo's. Just click on the link below for the contact details.ê
Brick Wall Cleaning & Cleaning Old Brick, Masonry & Stone Walls...
Take a look at these great brick cleaning photo's. This house had decades of industrial grime plastered to it's brickwork. It was choking under a thick film of dirt and grease.
Not only do the photo's show the vibrant colours being revealed and restored but also how little mess is created in the process.
Well here are several other "during brickwork cleaning" photographs. I bet you didn't expect the bricks to be that colour under all that murk, did you?
What I really want you to look at is how little mess is made. These photo's have not been fiddled. You haven't got gallons of water pouring down the walls and windows. You can see that the fine mist captures any dust and stops it blowing everywhere (more about the process later).
Here's some more pictures of work on the house. These are called "thumbnails". You have to click on each picture and you will get a much more detailed view (when you've finished, just click the "Back" button on your browser to come back to here).
So what did it look like when it was finished?
Just have a look at this incredible transformation below.....
Now I bet you would love to see this "in the flesh", wouldn't you? You know, to take a close look and "feel" if it was real? Well you cannot.
If you walked down this street looking for this block you would not find it.
Because now, we've done the one next to it as well.
Now think about this. The owners have got the best of both worlds here. They've got effectively, brand new "period houses". It's as though they stepped in a time machine — went back decades — and brought the skilled craftsmen back with them to build their houses.
Here's a "full frontal" photograph of the same property. What a difference!. Remember that the "dirty" houses look like brand new as well now. Luckily we took this picture before we rejuvenated the other one (or no-one would have believed us).
Wouldn't You feel proud to own a house like this?
I wonder how much it has increased in value now?
So how's it done?
Now if you've come straight to this page (rather than through the Brick Cleaning home page), you are probably wondering how it's done. In the pictures, it looks like high pressure shotblasting or sandblasting. It's not. It's much more gentle.
It's a system developed in the UK for cleaning fragile surfaces.
We first noticed it when it was used by the Royal Navy to renovate one of the nation's prized assets... HMS Victory. When they wanted to restore it back to it's original condition they came across a major problem.
At some time, the decks had been painted with red lead paint. I say painted, it was more like daubed or slapped on. So much that it was ¾" (2cm) thick.
It couldn't be burned off for both environmental and commonsense reasons (you just don't set fire to HMS Victory!).
They had to find another way and this is it.
A hot mist of water vapour and very soft media is used at ridiculously low operating pressures (about 28 PSI). Paint or dirt is gently removed layer by layer.
What does that mean for You?
Simple. You get your things cleaned with no fear of damage. If you have come straight to this page, please feel free to see how it is used on Oak beams and delicate stonework etc. Just follow the link at the top of the page).
Here's a photo of the unit in operation...
