Ideal for graffiti cleaning and sandstone cleaning
Graffiti Vandalism is sadly an ongoing battle in cities around Scotland. The unsightly paint vandalism is both a visual eyesore and can damage the sandstone walls themselves.
Sandstone is of course a very popular building material across Scotland and the cleaning of graffiti from sandstone walls must be done with great care and to ensure that it does not damage the porous material. Pressure washing should never be used for cleaning graffiti from sandstone as the forceful nature of this method of cleaning will permanently damage the sandstone.
Sympathetic Sandstone Cleaning with DOFF
DOFF Steam Cleaning is a modern cleaning system that uses super heated steam to clean and remove paint from stonework. We have been using DOFF steam cleaning for a number of years for Graffiti Cleaning on delicate sandstone. There are NO chemicals used in DOFF Cleaning and in comparison to pressure washing, uses very little water, making it better for the environment.
The superheated steam that comes out of the nozzle of the DOFF Steam Cleaner can be used to remove Paint, Chemical Staining & Biological Matter including moss, algae and fungus. DOFF Steam Cleaning kills of the spores of moss and fungus which significantly reduces the chances of the biological matter coming back. Something that pressure washing cannot do. And all done with no chemicals.
Our DOFF Steam System can also be used as a Softwash system for stonework cleaning.
In recent years, the warmer winter weather in Glasgow and indeed the central belt of Scotland has allowed algae, moss and other organic matter a larger growth window and they have truly taken advantage of this. Combined with increasing city traffic pollution, the exterior of buildings have become more and more dirty thanks to an increase of pollutants, moss and algae. This has all left residential and commercial properties looking tired and stained.
