Mortar And Brick Cleaner


BuildKleen is an effective and highly innovative mortar and brick cleaner chemical that is very safe and contains no acids; have you heard of a brick cleaner that is food-safe before?! The product is non-hazardous, non-toxic, and certified as food safe and needs no PPE when in normal use which is a refreshing change from hydrochloric acid and the safety risks it can bring while still highly effective.

Mortar And Brick Cleaner

If you are looking for an environmentally friendly and non-corrosive cleaner, then this is a great mortar and brick cleaner for you. You can apply with a low-pressure sprayer, sponge, roller or brush and scrub thoroughly and leave for five minutes or so for the cleaning to take place; often needs more than one application.

A pressure washer – used carefully – can also help with stubborn or very old dirt and with removing the loose dirt after application, however, a garden hose can also help a good deal as rinsing is important.

How Does It Work?

Using nano-technology energy packages this cleaning chemical penetrates deeply and dislodges algae, dirt and stains off mortar and brickwork by breaking the surface tension and lifting off the dirt – thus our expression ‘Cleans Not Kills’ because unlike biocides it does not kill anything and is pH neutral as well.

These nano-energy packages could be thought of as being like piranhas in the Amazon that are just milling around and waiting to attack and tear dirt away like piranhas would feed by tearing meat off the bones of their prey. A surface treated with this mortar and brick cleaner stays algae-free for longer and in our tests, natural stone absorbs rainwater in a more natural way that is almost like ‘breathing’.

BuildKleen is a pH-neutral masonry cleaner that contains:

  1. No biocides or bleach.
  2. No strong acids or alkalis.
  3. Certified as food-safe
  4. No odours

Eco-friendly brick cleaners are becoming more common and BuildKleen is a good value example of this trend. It is effective as a limestone and sandstone masonry cleaner of dirt and algae as it is pH neutral. The perfect cleaner for stonework and stone statues on heritage or listed buildings with a combination of aggressive action while gentle and safe to handle and as run-off and ultra-safe food-grade safety for cleaning staff.

Mortar And Brick Cleaner

More and more firms are looking for cleaning contractors that demonstrate care for the environment and this eco-friendly mortar and brick cleaner is a cost-effective option for you to do just that.

It is important also to rinse the area that you have treated so that ingrained dirt is carried away and this can be done with a pressure washer or a garden hose.

BuildKleen can be sprayed effectively but please ensure a generous quantity is in contact with the concrete that is to be cleaned and that this is both brushed in and rinsed off with a generous quantity of water.
