Cleaning stone is essential for maintaining stone buildings which are a unique and beautiful feature of the UK’s architectural heritage. However, over time, they can become damaged, worn, or discoloured, detracting from their natural beauty. That’s where professionals in cleaning stone and restoration services come in.
At APT, we specialise in providing high-quality services for cleaning stone and restoring stone to clients across Leeds, Bristol, Bath, Swindon, and Southwest England. Our team of experts has years of experience working with all types of stone, including limestone, sandstone, granite, marble and more. We are committed to using environmentally sound and appropriate methods to ensure that your stone is cleaned safely and efficiently.
As the owner of a stone building, you may be faced with the dilemma of whether or not to clean your stonework. If you don’t clean your stone, your building will continue to look unkept and could even be damaged by the algae, mosses, lichens, bird lime, and pollutants that have accumulated over the years. On the other hand, if you do have your stone cleaned, you will want to know that it is being done properly and using the right methods.
In the past, abrasive discs, aggressive chemicals, high-pressure washing, and grit blasting were the only options for cleaning stone. However, these methods have caused incalculable damage to the stone buildings of the UK. Fortunately, there are now more environmentally friendly and appropriate methods available for cleaning stone, including soda blasting, which is one of our preferred stone cleaning techniques.
Using a vortex of compressed air to carry specially graded sodium bicarbonate crystals, soda blasting is an excellent way to remove a range of surface contaminants, including:
Unlike other methods of stone cleaning, soda blasting does not damage the substrate, making it an ideal solution for cleaning and restoring delicate or historic stonework. It is also a much more environmentally friendly option, as it produces no hazardous waste or toxic fumes.
At APT, we offer a wide range of stone cleaning and restoration services, including:
As mentioned earlier, soda blasting is an excellent way to clean stone safely and effectively without damaging the substrate. Our team of experts has years of experience using soda blasting and can help you restore your stonework to its former glory.
In some cases, chemical cleaning may be necessary to remove tough stains or contaminants. We use environmentally friendly cleaning agents that are designed to be gentle on your stonework while still removing the most stubborn stains.
Super heated steam cleaning is an excellent way to remove dirt and grime from your stonework without using harsh chemicals. It is also an effective method for removing graffiti and other types of vandalism.
