Pressure Washing Brick

Pressure Washing Brick

For years, brick has been a popular building material for residential and commercial properties alike on the Sunshine Coast. Known for its strength, durability and recognisable look, brick often remains a top choice for building owners and contractors 

However, with time and weathering, even brick can become dirty and stained, with dust, mould and debris. In these cases, a good pressure washing can often return them to their former glory.

While bricks are not inherently difficult to clean, inexperienced pressure washers can often cause unwanted damage, such as etching or pitting of the brick surface. As such, special considerations but be taken to ensure that the surface is not damaged. In this post, we’ll take a look at how to pressure wash your Sunshine Coast surfaces safely and effectively.

Why Pressure Wash Bricks?

Over time, bricks begin to accumulate dirt, mould, algae, lichen, and general grime. Pressure washing has been proven to be a safe and effective way to revitalise old and dirty brick walls, walkways and patios.

There are many benefits to pressure washing your brick surfaces. These include:

  • Restoring the brick to its original condition
  • Removing dirt, dust, mould, and debris
  • Increasing the lifespan of the brick surface
  • Making it easier to clean in the future
  • Breathe new life into dull and dingey surfaces
  • Boost your curb appeal

How To Clean Your Brick

While providing a classic and timeless look, regular cleaning and maintenance are required to maintain the appearance of your brick. 

While pressure washing brick seems straightforward, there are a number of things to keep in mind in order to achieve the best results. If you are not careful, one can easily damage a brick surface with a pressure washer, if the pressure is set too high.

Traditional pressure washing is still useful in many circumstances and is ideal for stains that need more than a gentle wash to get rid of all those unsightly marks! 

However, for more delicate surfaces and brick that is old and fragile, soft washing is the perfect solution. While similar to traditional pressure washing, soft washing utilises lower water pressure and gentle detergents to effectively clean the brick. This is an effective way to clean and remove dirt without the risk of additional damage.

Why You Should Leave Brick Cleaning to the Professionals

Not all surfaces are made equal. Some are more delicate than others and can be easily damaged with too much pressure. As such, it is always best to leave the cleaning of brick to the professionals
