Did you know that bricks are by far the most popular building materials, with 1.9 billion bricks made in Great Britain in 2021, according to the ONS? It is one of the most solid and durable materials and is resistant to weather, pests, and fire. If you are looking to smarten up your property or are considering putting it on the market, you may not consider brick cleaning, but this can refresh the appearance of your home.

Here at Wipeout, we are brick and stone cleaning specialists who use the latest tools and equipment to clean all types of exterior surfaces. As well as cleaning brickwork, we can help you restore the integrity of your brick surfaces.

Here are just some of the benefits brick cleaning will bring:

Prolonged lifespan

By cleaning your brickwork and looking after it, you can ensure your bricks last a long time. According to the Brick Association, most bricks have a lifespan of 150 years, but the build-up of organic growth, such as algae, moss, and lichen, can damage surfaces over time.

Our comprehensive brick cleaning will remove all organic growth, and we can also prevent the regrowth of moss and organic matter with our doff cleaning.


Kerb appeal is important because first impressions really do count, especially if you are selling your property. A clean exterior will show that you have cared for and looked after your property well. This will make it more appealing to potential buyers and tenants.


Maintaining your property is always less expensive than repairs. Routine maintenance and brick cleaning will help stop the degradation of your walls, and it will improve the overall structural appeal of your property.


Brick is porous, meaning that it can absorb moisture and contaminants. In shady areas, brick can harbour moss, mould, and algae. These can make your property less healthy, so by cleaning bricks, you can ensure a more hygienic environment.

Brick cleaning specialists

We provide brick cleaning to both domestic and commercial properties throughout London and Surrey. We use a variety of cleaning methods, including doff cleaning and torc cleaning. We can clean even the oldest properties, and doff cleaning is recommended by English Heritage and many surveyors and builders because it is so gentle and effective. It uses super-heated water at low pressure, killing off biological spores to prevent regrowth.

We can also use specially-selected chemicals to stop regrowth for longer-term benefits. New brickwork can be added if required to remove mortar marks and banding left by scaffold boards.

We can also remove paint from brickwork, so if you wish to restore the original appearance of your brickwork, contact our brick cleaning specialists. We always use eco-friendly products, and you will see expert results quickly.
