Edinburgh Doff Stone Cleaning
Edinburgh Stone Cleaning and Restoration - Jos/Torc and Doff Cleaning Systems
Stone Cleaning in Edinburgh
With our extensive knowledge of stonemasonry, we have invested in the Jos-Torc and Doff stone cleaning systems.
Both these systems have been approved for use on grade one listed buildings. Cleaning a historically important building is an extremely delicate job that can easily cause more damage than good if carried out by inexperienced companies using over-aggressive systems and poor workmanship to both new and historic buildings.
At Burgh Stonemasonry we assess each building individually and develop a tailor-made specification that takes into account every aspect of the structure.
We specialise in the careful non-abrasive cleaning of buildings using the latest technology and strive to ensure the most sympathetic approach is selected.
The Doff System
Super heated steam cleaning system used for the requirements of building conservation and restoration. A unique combination of heat and pressure is used to remove unwanted matter without eroding the underlying surface. The system produces super heated water, a liquid spray at 150c. This temperature is capable of melting and removing many masonry paints, bitumen coatings, algae, moss, chewing gum and heavy deposits of oil and grease etc.
Jos/Torc Cleaning System
The Jos/torc system is a low pressure vortex process which uses a mixture of air, fine inert powder and relatively small quantities of water and is particularly effective for the removal of carbon, dirt, scale, micro-organisms and all types of atmospheric pollution from brick and stone.
Edinburgh Stone Restoration
In addition to stone cleaning, Burgh Stonemasonry will carry out all types of stone repairs, from stone replacements/indents to lime mortar repairs and lime mortar pointing. We also specialise in masonry stabilising of loose or damaged masonry using resin injection systems or stitching and pinning methods.
It is paramount to choose the right company when carrying out stone restoration as mistakes can be costly.
Whether you need assistance with the restoration of a listed building or you have a new build project, Burgh Stonemasonry can help you with your entire stone masonry needs.
Edinburgh Stone Cleaning
We have many methods at our disposal to ensure the effective and sympathetic cleaning of your property. Please contact us for further information where we will be able to advise you on the best method for the job in hand.
Cleaning is not just for cosmetic purposes, it is also vital in removing harmful deposits from historic listed structures that left would result in a build up of moisture and salts within the stone, leading to accelerated stone decay.
Our cleaning methods have been approved up to grade 1 listed buildings.
