STONE RESTORATION AND CLEANING
This is generally used for lightly stained portland stone surfaces. A detergent is sprayed at a low pressure and then rinsed using cold water from high pressure jets. Using this method (otherwise known as the Nebulous Technique) we can ensure we only remove the dirt and debris in question thus leaving the stone undamaged.
This is mainly used for heavily soiled exteriors. Our experts will assess the levels of soiling in question and carry out a small area to act as a 'patch test'. We will protect all glazing and other features with a polythene film which is acid proof. Acid is then applied using a low pressure sprayer and then rinsed by spraying using jets of steam.
This type of cleaning is mainly used for graffiti removal. It is used in conjunction with a steam generator. The chemical is applied before and after the steam to ensure no 'shadow' residue is left.
This method is used for very heavily soiled exteriors. The abrasives are applied with the correct pressure in order to preserve the colour and character of the area in question. All glazing and external features are protected and any residual waste is removed once the process has been completed.
This is used for spot removal of deep stains in natural stone, due to natural stone being pourose it if possible for unsealed stone to absorb liquids. A poultice is a paste that is applied to the stained area and allowed to dry, as the poultice dries it pulls the stain from the stone.
