Make Your Chicago Brick Bungalow Look New Again

Brick is one of the defining elements of the classic Chicago bungalow. But over the years, dirt and mildew can build up on the surface of the brick, reducing its appeal. Brick cleaning can return your Chicago bungalow to its original glory while protecting the bricks from invasive growths like moss and ivy. Brick cleaning is not a job for a handyman or homeowner. Brick cleaning or brick power washing is far more involved than cleaning houses with traditional wood or vinyl siding. High pressure and professional strength pressure cleaners for brick and mortar are required in order to remove dirt and stains embedded into the pores, joints and cavities of the brick. You can avoid risking potential damage to the brick, or yourself, when you hire Shamrock Tuckpointing to power wash your brick. Call or email us for a free estimate.
