Understanding Hydrochloric Acid…

What is hydrochloric acid?

Hydrochloric acid, sometimes referred to as muriatic acid, is a highly corrosive, strong mineral acid with many industrial uses. The solution comprises hydrogen chloride (HCl) gas dissolved in water and its potency and versatility make it ideal for various industrial and cleaning applications. 32% hydrochloric acid is the most popular choice for cleaning purposes, particularly in brick cleaning, descaling, metal refining and swimming pools.

Hydrochloric Acid (32%) & Brick Cleaning

Bricks have been a preferred construction material for centuries. If you look around you now, we guarantee that you can see at least one structure made from this durable and aesthetic material. Over time, brickwork can become stained, discoloured, and damaged due to exposure to the elements and pollutants. Dirt, efflorescence, mortar smears and other contaminants can accumulate on the surface of your brickwork. These deposits can impact the look, function, and stability of brick. One of the most popular ways of restoring the original brickwork is through acid cleaning using quality cleaners – specifically 32% hydrochloric acid.

What are the benefits of brick cleaning?

Whether residential, commercial or industrial, if the bricks of your building are starting to lose their colour and structure it’s time to clean them! Several benefits come with cleaning your brickwork. Here are just some that you can enjoy…

  • Remove Harmful Bacteria

Brickwork is a breeding ground for harmful bacteria and cleaning your brickwork with high-strength solutions can remove this potentially toxic bacteria.

  • No Repair Costs

Brick cleaning is a small maintenance task and is one that we’re sure you’d prefer over huge repairs. Regular brickwork maintenance ensures that your brick is of tip-top quality.

  • Add Value To Your Property

Well-maintained brickwork is essential to the value of your property. Clean brickwork is more likely to appeal to prospective buyers than brick covered with algae and dirt.

  • Aesthetics

The exterior of your property is what makes a first impression on visitors. Whether it’s your home or a commercial or industrial property, boost the aesthetics with brick cleaning.

  • Lifespan

Clean and maintained brickwork is crucial to ensuring the longevity of your brickwork. Removing rust, algae and other deposits helps your brickwork remain robust and durable.

Why choose hydrochloric acid (32%) for brick cleaning?

For more than 20 years, we have seen fantastic results from using hydrochloric acid for brick cleaning. Here are the benefits that you can enjoy when using 32% hydrochloric acid for brick cleaning…

  • Removes Mortar Smears & Efflorescence

Efflorescence (a white powdery substance forms on the brick’s surface caused by soluble salts present in the brick or mortar) and mortar smears (residue of cement, sand, and other additives left behind after construction) are common residues found on brickwork. Using 32% hydrochloric acid to clean your brickwork effectively dissolves and removes efflorescence and mortar smears to reinstate the appearance of your brickwork.

  • Removes Stains

Brickwork is exposed to the elements and pollutants and will therefore become stained in the long run.
