Brickwork Cleaning


Postby saustin » Tue May 06, 2008 7:40 am

Morning,

Over the weekend I did some painting (exterior gloss) at the front of my house, however some got onto the brick work.

I assume any type of gel paint remover will work on this ? butnot harm the brick ?

Also, I sparyed the Gas Meter cover with Plasti-Kote. However some excess spray drifted onto an unmasked off area..... will normal paint remover work again ?

Last point, my toilets overflow pipe leaked a few years ago, leaving me a nice white limescale pattern on the outside bricks, what is best to remove this ?

Thanks for all your help in advance
Cheers
saustin

Proprietry "brick acid" and a wire brush should work on at least 2 of your problems. It is not as concentrated as it used to be though.Cheers
