Historic & Residential Masonry cleaning
ThermaClean offer professional stone cleaning services at affordable prices, specialising in historic and listed buildings. Our ThermaTech cleaning system is globally recognised specialist equipment for the cleaning of masonry.
ThermaTech reaches temperatures up to 150°C enabling us to delicately clean and restore brickwork back to its original colour without the use of chemicals or high-pressure. This minimises the risk of damage to the bricks surface or other delicate areas including pointing, assuring a thorough and safe brick cleaning service.
There are a wide variety of reasons our clients may choose to have a building paint stripped but the most common reasons are to expose the original brickwork and the need to remove older failing or incorrect paint coatings which are trapping in moisture and causing damp within the building.
With our ThermaTech system reaching temperatures of up to 150°C we are able to break down and remove all types of coatings and paints with ease, cutting time and allowing us to offer you the best available prices on the market. We have extensive knowledge of different coatings and we can advise on the safest and most effective methods for removal. Read more.
ThermaClean are highly experienced in removing all types of stains and impurities from all types of stonework being flat or structured, restoring natural colour to the façade without any risk of damage being caused to the stones surface.
Our steam based cleaning machine reaches temperatures of up to 150 degrees and is excellent at removing dirt, grime and paint from your brick work, without causing any damage to the brick surface. Ideal for both heritage and listed buildings and new builds alike.
Façade cleaning is not only done to improve the appearance and aesthetics of stone buildings, but also because soiling can cause decay. Vehicle exhaust emissions and environmental pollution cause not only discolouration of stonework but can actually cause it to deteriorate.
Cleaning a building’s façade isn’t just about improving the way it looks, it’s about preventing or minimising permanent damage to its masonry. ThermaTech remove surface contaminates without the use of harmful chemicals.
We are able to quickly and safely remove flexible paints and surface treatments as well as non-temperature responsive coatings such as cement, mineralic and lime based paints – without the use of chemicals.
Brick, concrete, stone, stucco or other building surfaces can produce white crystals known as efflorescence on the surface. Using gentle abrasion, our super heated water system can remove efflorescence without damaging surfaces.
