Steam Cleaning of Brick & Natural Stone

High Pressure Steam Cleaning is used around London to remove dirt and grime from exterior surfaces such walls, paths and car parks. The use of steam enables us to significantly reduce or totally remove the need for chemicals when cleaning stone and brickwork. When used for cleaning any exterior, hard surface area, steam cleaning is the most environmentally friendly solution for removing dirt, grime and algae build up.
With temperatures of between 80°& 120°c and pressure up to 200 bar, the cleaning power of simple water is greatly increased. Our trailer mounted high pressure steam cleaning equipment is most suited to cleaning non porous, man made materials such as concrete, bricks, paving slabs.
Our operatives will literally blast away dirt and grime. With the addition of using hot water/steam, algae and weed growth is killed off and regrowth is greatly inhibited without the use of chemicals.

Low Pressure Steam

Low pressure steam cleaning uses higher temperatures, up to 150 degrees C, rather than higher pressures effectively to clean delicate substrates.

High Pressure Steam

High pressure steam cleaning combines 120 degrees C with a bit more oomph to blast away dirt and grime from more robust surfaces.

Chemicals

We try wherever possible to avoid using chemicals. When there is no alternative, we use bio-degradable products that have proven effectiveness.

Access Methods

Both high pressure and low pressure steam cleaning can be used for facade cleaning by way of rope access/abseiling or cherry pickers.
