Maintaining a pleasant exterior of your property is important for appealing to visitors or potential customers, depending on whether you are a homeowner of a business.

As the outside is the first thing people see as they approach the building, it is important to get it right. If you choose to sell your house, the value of your home can be impacted if the brickwork is not up to scratch.

Here at ICE cleaning, we are brick cleaning specialists and hold a 100% success rate on all our jobs. We will arrive promptly at the property and never leave the site unless you’re happy with the work that has been carried out.

With that in mind, check out our blog to find out some of the main uses for brick cleaning and when it is best to call in the professionals.

Graffiti Removal

If you own a business, the sight of graffiti can have a detrimental effect on possible customers. It could lead them to believe that you do not care about how you appear to the general public, or how your customers view you.

Similarly, if you are a homeowner, painted graffiti can result in further instances of graffiti attacks. Crime may rise in the local area because of this, and have a negative impact on the wider community.

Not only this, but graffiti may also cause harm to your property in the form of:

  • Shadowing
  • Pressure washing
  • Edging

If you find yourself the victim of graffiti, we can help rid your property of it. As a professional cleaning company we are committed to being eco-friendly, so will only use only non-abrasive and non-toxic solutions during the clean.

Getting rid of paint

In your local area, you will often see paint coating the surface of brickwork. If you have moved into your new house and want your exterior returned to its natural condition, brick cleaning may be the option for you.

Though paint can be difficult to remove from walls, doing so will extend its longevity. Having this treatment completed may save you some money too, as you won't be spending so much on repairs.

For any homeowner, it is important to enjoy the aesthetic outside of your home. This is also the case for prospective buyers of your property who are looking for somewhere new to settle. In these instances, special care should be taken to make sure the property's exterior is looking pristine.

Fresh and clean walls will only work in your favour in the housing market, as it shows people that your home is well-maintained. Additionally, having a brick cleaning service carried out periodically will achieve excellent results.

Bird droppings

Another familiar occurrence on brickwork is bird droppings. You will find these on all manner of surfaces, from window ledges to garden walls.

What you may not know about bird guano is that it can cause be detrimental to human health. For example, risks include developing cryptococcosis and salmonella if you come into contact with it.

As well as this, guano could cause corrosion to surfaces it is stuck to. To deal with bird droppings, it is recommended to hire in the professionals. They will be able to completely eradicate the issue from all affected areas.

Before you are able to get a cleaning expert in to deal with the problem, stay away from the bird droppings. Once they have arrived on site, technicians will use industry-specialist equipment to return your property to its original condition.

Biological Growth

Biological growth can consist of matter such as algae, moss, lichen and fungi. They are commonly found on historic homes, where a lot of upkeep is required.

An effective brick clean can effectively remove biological growth from walls. Having this treatment done is essential to prevent significant damage being done to the property over time.

This matter are particularly attracted to the soggy conditions on parts of brickwork where moisture is present. For instance, it might be more visible on the north side of properties or in wet weather conditions.

Our technicians have extensive experience in dealing with this type of growth, and use state-of-the-art technology to achieve excellent results for our customers.

Limescale

Limescale can be difficult to treat, and will garner much better results if dealt with by professionals.

This naturally occurs on surfaces, and is made up of calcium deposits. It is important to clean limescale once it is identified to protect the condition of the brickwork.

Similar to the other reasons why brick cleaning can come in handy, limescale should be cleaned regularly to prevent the appearance of the building being impacted. Our technicians have years of experience in the field, and know how to deal with all types of cleaning requirements.

Our brick cleaning treatment

We are available 24/7, 365 days to provide you with effective brick cleaning services.

In cases of emergency, we can be on site within the hour to begin work on the brick clean. Our teams undergo regular training to keep up to date with the newest industry techniques and solutions.

You can rest assured that our staff have all the qualifications necessary to carry out the job too. Examples of organisations we are recognised by include:

TORIK system

To conduct our brick clean, we use the TORIK system. This works by releasing a controllable flow of super-heated water through a nozzle resistant to heat onto the brickwork.

This is a popular method of cleaning with both our domestic and commercial customers. Once it has been applied to surfaces, it dries instantly and is highly effective at removing dirt and grime from the exterior.
