Brick is one of the most ancient substances for constructing buildings and structures. The earliest known mention of brick-making is found in the Bible and earthen building blocks dating back 10,000 years have been found in the Middle East.
In modern times, bricks are still a popular building material for structural and exterior walls and they also add warmth and texture to interior walls, floors, fireplaces, etc., as well as to outdoor garden paths and walkways or patios.
Made from a combination of sand, water, clay, and heat, bricks are attractive, durable, fireproof and come in a range of types, sizes and colors pleasing to the eye . . . until they get soiled or stained from dirt, soot, grease, iron or rust, paint splatters, smoke stains or other soils that mar their appearance.
Removing Stains from Brick
Because they are a porous material, whatever spills on bricks tends to sink in rather than just remain on the surface. This can make brick cleaning difficult. What you need is a spot remover that is strong enough to penetrate and dissolve the stain, without damaging the bricks themselves. We don’t know what people in the ancient world did to solve their cleaning problems, but in our modern age Goof Off® Heavy Duty Spot Remover & Degreaser is a strong spot remover to use for brick stains. The magic combination of Goof Off® and a stiff bristled brush is all you need to remove any kind of stains from brick, or brick veneer, and restore it to its former beauty.
Goof Off® Heavy Duty Spot Remover & Degreaser also easily and quickly removes efflorescence, which is the white, powdery substance that forms on brick walls (either interior or exterior) as a result of the high chloride(salt) content in the mortar used to hold the blocks in place.
TIP: If efflorescence continues to return, this may be a sign that water is somehow entering the wall. Don’t ignore this problem or significant damage can result.
