Sandstone Cleaning Edinburgh Old Town
Eco Pressure Clean provide Edinburgh Sandstone Cleaning of stone, facebrick or unpainted render. It is worth noting that these surfaces need to be cleaned occasionally to preserve the aesthetic and physical integrity of the masonry.
Firstly, due to inclement weather conditions in and around Edinburgh, dark stains, algae, moss and lichens can appear on both natural and cultured sandstone over time.
So using a pressure washer or wrong cleaner type on the wrong material can cause irreparable damage to your sandstone building. For example, a product that typically cleans red brick and gray mortar can result in colour loss on other types of brickwork. Consequently, understanding types of cleaning method can be complicated and this is where Eco Pressure Clean can help with Sandstone cleaning. We use systems specially designed in the construction business to ensure your precious brickwork is preserved.
Also worth noting, Sandstone is the main type of stone used for building in Scotland. Furthermore, it is known as a durable material but also naturally very porous, making erosion an issue if exposed to wind and water/ rain over time. However, if correctly maintained, Sandstone is a very stable building material – as shown by the many Victorian and Georgian buildings in Edinburgh.
