We use the Doff Stone Cleaning System

Stonework can respond incredibly well to being cleaned. Removing all those atmospheric contaminants and organic growth can have a truly dramatic impact on the appearance of your home.

Stonework requires inspection by experienced professional cleaners before work starts. The type of stone, how dirty it is, and its overall condition are just some of the factors our highly trained team will identify in order to specify the appropriate cleaning process. There are numerous stone cleaning methods such as vortex, ice, steam, pressure washing or soft washing. Each method has its benefits and drawbacks, our experts determine which is the best option for each project.

Before you enlist a contractor to clean your property’s stonework, check that the company has the correct accreditations for the safe and correct use of the cleaning equipment they intend to use.

It’s worth noting that English Heritage has only approved the use of Doff steam cleaners for cleaning stonework on any Listed building in England. Using non-approved cleaning companies with non-approved equipment could result in substantial fines for both the homeowner and the cleaning company.

Purple Rhino employees have the Rosette award which is approved by English Heritage. We have cleaned many different types of stone including but not limited to; Portland Stone, Bath Stone, Sand Stone, Granite, Marble, and others. We often use gentle Doff steam cleaning machines to carefully clean buildings with outstanding results.

Stone Cleaning

You should consider using an experienced stone cleaning company with many years of experience as you cannot afford to choose the wrong type of cleaning company that may use the wrong method.

Once you know the type of stone you have on your building, Granite, Bath Stone, Sand Stone, Lime Stone or perhaps Portland Stone or other then you need to call in an expert exterior building stone cleaning company who can arrange the very best cleaning method for the substrate and the contaminants on it which you require removing.

Different types of organic matter, atmospheric pollutants, or manmade problems may be evident on your building’s stone surfaces. There are a lot of options to choose how to remove them gently, safely and effectively. Typically, there are access issues that need to be addressed. For instance, do you need a MEWP, access scaffold tower, or something else? Each building is unique in this regard.

Once you have chosen a company who will come to see you to offer a quote, it is worth ensuring that they understand the implications of correct stone cleaning and regulations for safe practices and methods as well as local and government laws when it comes to water usage and waste produced.
