Brick walls are beautiful both indoors and outdoors. Also, brick is super durable and has always been one of the best materials to use for building properties. But no matter if you have brick walls indoors or outdoors, you need to take care of them and clean them every once in a while – especially when they are outdoors!
Today, a friend of mine over at https://cleaners.ltd.uk will share with you how to do this chore as easily and effectively as possible!
How to Clean Your Brick Wall According To Experts?
First start off with clearing up the space so it’s ready for cleaning. For example, remove any decorations, plants, furniture, carpets, cars, grills, or anything else that is around the brick wall no matter if it’s indoors or outdoors. If the wall you will be cleaning is indoors, you would also want to place a few towels on the floor next to the wall so they can catch the water and not make a huge mess in your home.
Now, let’s focus on cleaning outdoor brick walls. Of course, this is easier than indoor walls because you don’t have to worry about making a mess. The first thing you need to do is grab a bristled brush, a bucket, warm water, and dish detergent. Make soapy water in the bucket.
But before we use the cleaner we make, we need to spray the wall with a hose. Then dip the brush in the soapy water and start scrubbing.
But what can you do if the walls are indoors? Start with vacuuming the wall so you get rid of any accumulated dust and dirt. Next, fill a bucket with warm water and a few drops of dish detergent.
Dip a sponge or a rag, dip it in the cleaner, and start wiping the wall – but be careful not to make a big mess in your home. The towels you placed on the floor will make sure all water will be absorbed. For any hard-to-reach areas, you can use an old toothbrush.
And the final step is, of course, rinsing. If the wall is outdoors, just rinse with the hose but if the wall is indoors, you will need a bit of patience and time. Dip a rag or cloth in warm water and start wiping the bricks in order to remove the soapy residue and the impurities. Take as much time as you need in order to properly rinse the wall. Then wait for it to fully dry before you remove the towels off of the floor.
