Brickwork Cleaning in London


Turn back the clock a century and you will discover that London was thick with smoke and soot before the Clean Air Acts of Parliament came into effect in the 1950s. Those cold, windless nights gave birth to the infamous ‘London Pea Soup’ or Smog, leaving its mark on the city’s iconic brickwork.

In the heart of Victorian London, where buildings stood tall and proud, three distinct brick types were used in residential properties:

1. The vibrant Bright Yellow London Stock

2. The soft Red Rubbers

3. The subtle Pale Yellow ‘Gaults’

Over time, the ravages of pollution took their toll, leaving these bricks stained and weathered. However all 3 types can be made to look as new.
