Comments Off on Stone Retaining Walls – How to Clean Them

Over the last few decades, there have been many changes in the housing market. Homes have become more expensive, and the value of landscaping and maintaining both the interior and exterior of the home has added value and prestige to our most valued investments. The design and maintenance of your home’s appearance should not be taken lightly since curb appeal is paramount in establishing your property’s prestige and resale value. Some people just don’t’ understand what ‘a prize’ an old stone retaining wall is on their property. As a substitute for letting this piece of history fall into disorder, it should be upheld. An exhaustive cleaning of an old stone retaining wall can bring the wall back to life and once again add beauty to your yard and landscape.

Use a medium-size pressure washer. Besides, if you begin to clean the wall without the proper soaking, you will only drive the surface soot deeper into the wall’s pores by wicking action making it harder to clean, so wait before you go ahead. Now begin the cleaning process by first soaking the wall. This is achieved by moderately washing the wall down with a wide-angle nozzle. Now your wall is exhaustively soaked, which will permit the detergent to penetrate deeper into the wall system lifting the soot and grime away. A water-logged wall will also keep the detergent from drying out ahead of time, letting it sufficient time to perform its function. The hoax is to use a commercial-grade degreaser. Now smear a concentrated heavy degreaser bought from a commercial pressure cleaning supply company. Do not dilute. Subsequently, about 10 – 15 minutes later, the wall will start to turn dark amber, then a dirty brown. The degreaser has had a chance to work by lifting the grime; it is time to stir it just like a washing machine. Using your 15-degree nozzle, begin to hit the wall with quick, random strokes and from top to bottom.
