10 Professional Tips To Clean Your Bricks

If you're looking for bricks for your house, you've come to the right place. We carry a wide variety of bricks in different sizes, colors and styles to suit any home. Whether you're looking for a classic red brick or a more modern white brick, we have what you're looking for.


Bricks Are Classic Building Material


Bricks are a classic building material that has been used for centuries. They're strong, durable and easy to work with, making them a popular choice for both new construction and repairs. Bricks can also be used to create a variety of different looks, from traditional to contemporary. However, your bricks get dirty because of the environment they're in. There's dust in the air that settles on them, and if they're near anything that's being used (like a sidewalk), they'll get dirty from that, too. Plus, if it rains, the water can wash away any dirt that's on them, leaving them looking clean.


Here are 10 professional tips to clean your bricks:


1. Inspect your bricks regularly for dirt, stains, or other damage.


2. If possible, sweep or vacuum your bricks regularly to remove any loose dirt or debris.


3. If there are any stains on your bricks, spot-clean them with a mild detergent or cleaning solution.


4. For tougher stains, you may need to scrub the area with a soft brush.


5. If your bricks are looking dull, you can clean them with a mild acid-based cleaner.


6. Always rinse the bricks after cleaning them, and allow them to dry completely before applying any sealer or treatment.


7. If you're using any harsh chemicals, be sure to wear gloves and eye protection.


8. When applying any cleaners or treatments, always follow the manufacturer's instructions.


9. If you're unsure about anything, it's always best to consult a professional.


10. Regular cleaning and maintenance will help to keep your bricks looking their best.


Additional Brick Cleaning Techniques


There are a few different cleaning techniques that you can use for your bricks. One is to simply hose them down with water. This will remove any dirt or debris that is on the surface of the bricks. Another option is to use a power washer. This will remove any stubborn dirt or grime that is on the bricks. If you want to get a deeper clean, you can use a stiff brush and some soapy water. This will remove any dirt or grime that is embedded in the bricks. Whatever cleaning technique you choose, make sure you rinse the bricks off with clean water afterwards.


Advanced Brick Cleaning Tips & Tricks


Cleaning bricks is a labor intensive process, one of the first things you should do is to remove all the surface grime, dirt and debris from the brick. The easiest way to do this is to use a hard brush. Work from the top down to the bottom of the brick. When you are done, you should use a pressure washer to clean the entire brick. The pressure washer should have a soap dispenser option. Fill the soap dispenser with a mild soap. Start at the top, and work your way down. The soap will help to break down the dirt on the brick.
