Bricks are one of the most popular materials for building houses, with 1.9 billion bricks produced in Great Britain in 2021 according to the ONS.

When selling your home, brick cleaning might not be the first thing that comes to your mind. However, if you invest the time into maintaining the brickwork on and surrounding your property, it can work to your advantage.

Check out our blog to find out how a brick clean can help you appeal to buyers, and why it is an effective and long-term solution for your building.

Increased longevity

One of the reasons why bricks in the UK are so popular is because of their sustainability. The Brick Association notes how they have a typical existence of approximately 150 years.

However, the structure of your property won't benefit if brickwork is left uncleaned. Moss, algae, and lichen are just some examples of the grime that can build-up on your walls, and can lead to the surface cracking over a length of time.

Investing in a brick clean will increase the longevity of your building by keeping destructive substances at bay. This will be an added benefit for possible buyers, who will not have to spend lots of money getting the bricks on their new home serviced.

It is important to think about these key selling points when putting your house on the market, as it could help the property sell quicker.

Attractive to buyers

The exterior of your building is the first thing potential buyers will see when approaching. It will be off-putting to them if the brickwork has not been cared for and looked after. You don’t want to find yourself in this situation, so it is best to get your walls cleaned on a regular basis.

It only takes 7 seconds for someone to form a solid first impression, which is why it is so important to get it right. A spotlessly clean façade will allure buyers and work in your favour if you wish to sell the property.

It’s beneficial for your health

The dirt and grime collecting on the surface of your walls can be harmful to human and animal health. This is because some of the substances are pathogenic and contain bacteria which is detrimental to you and your loved ones.

Hiring in the professionals to clean your brickwork is a great way of keeping these harmful materials at bay. They will be brick cleaning specialists who use industry techniques and solutions to eradicate pathogens.

Care should be taken to ensure all parts of the brickwork undergo a thorough clean. For instance, ask the team to undertake a chimney clean. This surface can be plagued with creosote from burning wood and needs to be cleaned because it is both flammable and a danger to your health.

It can save you a penny

When doing your research into brick cleaning services, it can be good to know what type of brick your home is made of. Travis Perkins provides a useful guide to help you identify this.

Instead of having to fork out for extensive work on your home, consistently cleaning your bricks will save you a lot of money in the long run. It can also help to increase the value of your home.

In the process of selling, reducing costs is always a good thing. The money you save from not doing large-scale repairs means that it can be spent on other parts of the house which require more attention. 

How the professionals can help

A brick cleaning company can save you the time and hassle that comes with preserving brickwork. With years of experience in the field, they will know how to treat different types of brick during the clean.
