What is doff cleaning?

Doff cleaning refers to cleaning the exterior of buildings, such as removing dirt, grime, and other contaminants from the exterior surfaces of a building. Wash Your Walls using specialist equipment and cleaning techniques to provide the best finish to your Caterham property.

Doff cleaning utilises a combination of low pressure (around 1,200 psi) and high-temperature water (150°C) to steam clean buildings in Caterham. This gentle approach is better for older and more fragile buildings, yet it is still strong enough to clean masonry and remove algae

Doff system will clean stone with fewer risks

One of the key reasons doff cleaning methods are so effective is because up to five litres of heated water comes through the nozzle end, specially designed to impact without damage, deep saturation or thermal shock. Thermal shock, when the temperature changes considerably, can be damaging to buildings, but the doff system protects against this better than some other cleaning methods

Our cleaning equipment cares for buildings

Doff machines offer a quick solution that is non-obtrusive and less likely to damage brick and other surfaces than other methods. If you are looking for peace of mind regarding doff cleaning, please note this low pressure doff steam cleaning method is trusted and recommended by English Heritage, Historic England, the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the National Trust.

Doff system revitalises faded brick colour

As well as cleaning, a doff machine can revitalise the appearance of brick and concrete. These surfaces are exposed to the elements, and naturally lose some of their lustre. Therefore, if you are undertaking concrete renovations, hire Wash Your Walls, and our doff machine will ensure your buildings look fantastic again.

What does doff cleaning remove?

Doff steam cleaning is a highly effective way of removing modern paint, bitumen, fungi, algae and moss from walls. This creates a clean and attractive finish on masonry, brick and other surfaces. In addition to doff cleaning being a quick process, the heated water from the nozzle end dries quickly. This minimises the risk of moisture being trapped and building, making this a cleaning solution which protects against algae growth and organic matter.

What are the benefits of the doff cleaning process?

There are several benefits to doff steam cleaning the exterior of a building in Caterham:

Improved appearance

Doff cleaning helps to remove dirt, grime, and other contaminants from the surface of a structure, improving its overall appearance. A clean building is more visually appealing and can make a positive impression on visitors and passers-by.

 

Increased property value

A clean building can increase the property's value. Potential buyers or renters may be more interested in a well-maintained and clean property.

Structural preservation

Dirt, grime, and other contaminants can cause damage to the exterior surfaces of a building over time. Doff cleaning helps to remove these contaminants and prevent damage, helping to preserve the structural integrity of the building.

Health and safety

Contaminants on the exterior of a building can pose a health hazard, particularly if they contain mould or other harmful substances.

Energy efficiency

A clean building can be more energy efficient, as contaminants on the exterior surfaces can interfere with the building's insulation and other energy-saving features. Doff cleaning can help to improve the energy efficiency of a building.

Environmental benefits

Doff cleaning can also have ecological benefits, as it can help to reduce the amount of dirt and grime that flows into storm water systems and waterways. This can help to improve water quality and protect the environment.

A doff cleaning system is suitable for many materials, including brick, wood and stone. It is also effective at removing graffiti, chewing gum removal and algae and being a chemical-free cleaning solution. For complete peace of mind in protecting your surroundings while working safely and effectively, doff cleaning is one of the most effective options available to property owners. We are proud to offer this solution as part of our services.

Our step-by-step doff cleaning guide

Many people think they can undertake extensive projects themselves, but it is best to leave doff cleaning to trained professionals. Our skilled team is trained in specialist equipment, which includes safety training.
Working with high-pressure jets and steam is dangerous when in the wrong hands, so please review our step-by-step guide, and contact us for the best standard of doff cleaning:

Preparation work

Before the cleaning process begins, someone must clean exterior walls and surrounding areas. Our team removes loose debris, covers plants and landscaping, and ensures your windows and doors are covered and protected. This ensures we clean everything and that your property and premises are cared for.

Safety measures

Working on exterior walls is often challenging, and when working with high-pressure equipment or at heights, dangerous. Our team wears protective clothing, which includes safety goggles, gloves and a hard hat. We also use harnesses and other safety equipment, ensuring we work effectively and with minimal risk.

Choose and use the right steam cleaning equipment

Even with doff cleaning, there are many ways to clean a wall and different equipment. Our team evaluates your premises and, depending on the size and surface condition will select the most appropriate method. Standard options include a pressure washer system, a soft wash system or even a hand-held cleaning apparatus.

Preparing and mixing cleaning solutions

It is vital to mix and add a cleaning solution with a pressure wash or soft wash system. We are highly experienced in this task, ensuring your walls are treated effectively.

Applying the cleaning solution

Once the solution is mixed, it is essential to apply it to external walls consistently. Typically, the cleaning solution is applied from the top down, covering the entire wall.

Allowing the solution to permeate the wall

The cleaning solution and superheated water should sit on the surface for at least five to 10 minutes. This enables the steam cleaning solution to penetrate the wall, loosening grime, biological matter and dirt from stone surfaces without causing damage.

Rinse the solution

After the solution has worked its magic, it must be rinsed off; again, we typically work from the top down, ensuring the entire wall is rinsed.

Review and inspect the work

After the wall is dry, we inspect the wall, looking for areas that require additional work or spot cleaning. We are also happy to schedule regular maintenance or reappraisal work to ensure your walls remain in excellent condition.

We help you clean, restore and save brick, concrete or stone surface walls

If you are looking to restore a tired or damaged surface, including stone and concrete, or just want to deliver extra attention in restoring a building to its former glory, we offer a dependable, low carbon footprint solution.

As you’ll see, there is a comprehensive level of work associated with doff cleaning, and we are more than happy to manage this responsibility on your behalf.

What is Doff cleaning and how does it differ from traditional pressure washing?

DOFF cleaning is a method of cleaning brick and other masonry surfaces that combines high-pressure steam and heat. The Doff cleaning system employs a specialised machine that heats water to a high temperature before cleaning the surface with high-pressure steam.

Is Doff cleaning safe for my brick or masonry surfaces?

Because it uses low pressure and only water as a cleaning agent, DOFF cleaning is considered safe for most brick and masonry surfaces. However, it is critical that the professional you hire is experienced and has the necessary equipment to use the cleaning method.

How effective is Doff cleaning at removing stains and discoloration?

DOFF cleaning is a popular method for removing stains and discoloration from brick and masonry surfaces. The high-pressure steam and heat generated during the cleaning process help to break down dirt and grime, allowing the cleaning solution to penetrate deeper into the surface and remove stains and discoloration more effectively.

How long does it take for the brick or masonry to dry after a Doff cleaning?

The time it takes for the brick or masonry to dry after a DOFF cleaning is determined by several factors, including the weather, the cleaning method used, and the condition of the brick. In general, warm, sunny weather dries bricks faster than cool, damp conditions. It usually takes a few hours, but it can take up to 24 hours for the brick to dry completely.
