The advanced stone cleaning method preferred by heritage organisations across Scotland and England.

TORC Stone Cleaning System is the best way to carefully clean stonework on historic, older and listed buildings.

It will not damage building surfaces and is the ideal cleaning tool for stone cleaning projects including historic cathedrals, churches, listed buildings and similar delicate stonework buildings and monuments. It can gently remove carbon sulphates, brittle paints, limescale, moss and other biomatter.

It is the advanced stone cleaning system that is revolutionising the industry.


How does TORC Stone Cleaning Technology Work?

TORC Cleaning works through the generation of a low pressure vortex mixture of air, water and a safe/inert fine granulate. This gentle swirling vortex can then be directed through either a large or small nozzle appliance cone which allows for accurate stonework cleaning, detailing and a large area coverage.

What can TORC Stone Cleaning be used for?

  • The removal of carbon sulphation
  • The removal of lime & cement based paints
  • The removal of paint residues
  • The removal of most aged oil based paints
  • The removal of bitumen
  • The removal of lime scale

The TORC Stonework Cleaning system gently removes paints, biomatter, dirt, carbon deposits, carbon staining, bitumen, lime scale and vandalism graffiti from any building stonework (including brick, stone, wood, concrete and more) without damaging the building materials.

And TORC can be used for more than just stonework. We can use TORC Cleaning technology to perform detailed cleaning services on metal work such as statues and railings. TORC can safely and gently remove oxidation and sulphates from metals such as bronze, brass and copper.
