Masonry Cleaning: Exterior & Interior

Thursday, April 9, 2020 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. EST


Learn about the rationale and methodology for cleaning both interior and exterior masonry surfaces. Cleaning can be the first type of repair measure performed on a new masonry structure to remove any construction residue and can also be performed as part of a regular maintenance program or restoration project. With the current public safety issues surrounding COVID-19, cleaning has and will continue to be a more regular procedure. In these instances, the masonry can be susceptible to damage caused by an improper selection of materials or methods. Understanding how to approach and develop a proper testing program is the first step in determining which technique will clean the building while promoting long-term performance. Get an introduction to current cleaning systems and their general performance and applications. Specific attention will be paid to chemical, micro-abrasive, laser, and latex systems.
