Power Washing

Power Washing Before & After

  • Before: Ornamental limestone was extremely stained with carbon and dirt deposits.
    After: Simple cleaning detergents restore the limesone to its natural apperance
  • Before: Atmospheric dirt and carbon stains on exposed masonry and limestone surfaces.
    After: Chemical cleaning removes the impurities and restores the brick and limestone back to its original color.
  • Before: The capstones and stone facade were soiled with atmospheric dirt and carbon deposits.
    After: Power washing restored the limestone back to its original appearance.
  • Before: Noticeable dirt and water stains made this masonry appear weathered and drab.
    After: Chemical cleaning enhanced the curb appeal of this apartment building.
  • Before: Traffic fumes and pollution took a toll on the face of this building.
    After: Removing these deposits allowed for the true colors of the brick to stand out.
  • Before: This house was painted four different colors over the years providing ARROW with a paint removal challenge.
    After: Traditional chemicals could not break through the many coats of paint effectively so ARROW had to utilize a waterblasting method (powerwashing with silica sand). As you can see the results were amazing. ARROW also tuckpointed and sealed this brick with a siloxane (clear) waterproofing agent.
  • Before: This stone wall is to the front entrance of a subdivision. As you can see it was heavily soiled from traffic fumes and air pollutants.
    After: ARROW simply powerwashed the stone without the use of chemicals to protect the vegetation. The wall cleaned up beautifully.

In addition to tuckpointing and masonry repair, Arrow Masonry also provides cleaning services for brick and stone. Power Washing is a relatively safe and cost effective method of furnishing your masonry building with a fresh new look. It is usually requested on older buildings where heavy pollution and traffic fumes have left their mark over the years.

Atmospheric dirt, carbon, mold and algae are all common deposits defacing brick surfaces. Chemicals, with the aid of a pressure washer, can work wonders to uncover the original look of your brick. The chemical is sprayed on to the masonry or stone surface then power rinsed off. Stubborn deposits are treated with a waterblasting method which incorporates both water and silica sand. Arrow Masonry pays special attention to preparing the worksite prior to any cleaning process to insure protection of exposed windows, doors, and landscaping.
