Soda blasting is one of our preferred methods of brick cleaning and revitalising. This sympathetic brick cleaning method enables us to clean bricks and other building facades without causing damage to the substrate materials and joint mortars.
Soda blasting uses precision compressed air to fire specially graded sodium bicarbonate crystals (sensitively abrasive particles) at the brick wall (or other brick surface) to remove any unwanted surface deposits. Working from the outside in soda blasting gently removes successive layers of contamination, until the suitable brick cleaning has been achieved.
