Cornwall, a region steeped in history and natural beauty, is home to an array of stone buildings that capture the essence of its rich architectural heritage. These include quaint stone cottages nestled in the countryside to imposing public buildings like churches and museums. 

The stone used in Cornwall varies widely, offering a palette of natural colours and textures that contribute to the region’s distinctive landscape. Granite is a popular choice, especially in areas like Bodmin. Limestone, often used in coastal properties, offers a softer texture, while sandstone provides a warm, earthy hue that blends seamlessly with Cornwall’s scenic backdrop.

But no matter the type of building and the stone used, all stone buildings in Cornwall have one thing in common, and that is the effect of the weather on their appearance.

The impact of Cornwall’s damp climate on stone buildings

Cornwall’s damp climate poses challenges for the maintenance of stone buildings, specifically the growth of moss and algae. Over time, these growths discolour the stone, robbing it of its natural hues and textures. What was once a vibrant facade of granite or limestone can become a dull, greenish-brown surface, marred by patches of moss and streaks of algae. 

But moss and algae not only make your building look unattractive. They can actually pose significant structural risks. Moss can find its way into the mortar that holds the stone together. Over time, they can weaken the mortar and compromise the structural integrity of the wall.

That’s why regular stone cleaning and maintenance are essential for preserving the beauty and longevity of a stone building. And stone cleaning is something that we excel at.

How our stone cleaning Cornwall services restore the natural beauty of your stone building

Each type of stone used in Cornish buildings has its own unique cleaning needs. We understand these differences and have developed specialised cleaning methods to bring out the natural colours and textures of any stone.

The power of steam cleaning

Our preferred solution for most stone cleaning challenges is steam cleaning, a method that combines low pressure with high temperatures of up to 150 degrees Celsius. Unlike abrasive cleaning techniques (such as power washing) that can damage the stone and the mortar holding it together, steam cleaning is gentle yet effective. It penetrates the porous surface of the stone to lift dirt, grime, and moss and algae, all without causing any structural damage.

Eco-friendly and effective stone cleaning

Another advantage of steam cleaning is its environmental friendliness. The process uses minimal water and does not require harsh chemicals, making it an eco-conscious choice for property owners mindful of their environmental impact. 

Suitable for lime render

For buildings with lime render, a material particularly sensitive to pressure and chemical treatments, steam cleaning is an ideal option. The low-pressure, high-temperature combination is gentle enough to clean without causing damage, and so preserving the integrity of your building’s exterior.

Stone cleaning tailored to your property

In summary, we offer a comprehensive stone cleaning service that is tailored to the specific needs of your property. Our steam cleaning method is both effective and environmentally responsible, making it the preferred choice for discerning property owners.

Protecting your stone property for the long-term

By removing moss, algae, and other growths, you reduce the risk of long-term damage, avoiding the need for expensive wall repairs in the future. A clean, well-maintained stone wall or building is less likely to require frequent repairs, saving you both time and money in the long run.
