Restoration Cleaning

The Importance of Restoration Cleaning

With historic masonry there are several reasons for cleaning a historic masonry building: improve the appearance of the building by removing unattractive dirt,soiling materials, or non-historic paint from the masonry; remove carbon; retard deterioration by removing soiling materials that may be damaging the masonry; or provide a clean surface to accurately match re-pointing mortars or patching compounds, or to conduct a condition survey of the masonry.  With the proper cleaning, this brick is given a fresh, bright, new look.

Whether they are cleaning their own work or the work of others, the cleaning specialists at Staat Inc., use attention to detail and careful mixing of cleaning agents to bring you the perfect cleaning, for every job. Our work has even been featured in nationwide construction articles, such as Prosoco News.

Whatever the size of the project, substrate in question, or age of the building, Staat's brick and stone cleaning services can make old buildings look new again. Additionally, Staat Inc., cleans new masonry buildings for bricklaying contractors and even offers masonry power washing services.


Graffiti removal is very complex due to orchestrating the removal without damaging existing substrates. Stain removal is also challenging as the variety of substances to remove can include rust, carbon buildup, asphalt, tar, algae, efflorescence, and lime run.  Each type of stain can require its own specific cleaner. However, with the knowledgeable graffiti and stain removal experts at Staat Inc., you can feel confident that the right cleaners will be chosen, giving you fast, effective results.
