The brick & stone façade of Lloyds Bank in Devizes, Wiltshire had become soiled over time.

Scope of Works

Following conversation with the project manager the below methodology was suggested

  • Testing to be carried out on a small & discrete section of brickwork on the second floor to identify the best methodology, to clean the building.
  • Top level soiling removal through careful sensitive low-pressure steam cleaning.
  • Areas to be cleaned: the stonework and brick on the front façade of the building.
  • Working hours have been determined to ensure that the day to day operation of the bank is not impacted. Evening, night or Sunday working is advised.

Outcomes

As anticipated the testing proved that the best methodology was to steam clean the building using low pressure.  A ThermaTech machine was used as this is one of the machines that architects often specify for heritage work.  It allows for very gentle cleaning to be carried out.

Summary

The clean was completed in a long night shift to minimise disruption to the users of the building.
