Not a lot of people know how to carry out paint removal from brick surfaces, and many people think that taking care of it themselves is a good idea (HINT: it rarely is a good idea). To illustrate why trusting a business like ours is usually a better idea, let us talk you through some common questions and suggestions we see from the DIY paint removal community.
Using a pressure washer is not a good idea when you try to remove paint from brick walls, because not only is masonry paint designed to withstand harsh weather, so it would take a lot of work to actually see results, but it can also leave the brick surface beneath the paint in a poor condition.
The amount of pressure needed during a pressure wash to remove paint would almost certainly damage the brick beneath. Depending on how many layers of pain there were too, this method might not even work to begin with.
Many people underestimate how much effort it takes to remove paint from your painted walls. Brickwork is complicated, and masonry paint is built to last, so if you're passionate about removing the paint yourself, then be prepared for a lot of hard work, and get ready to head to the store for very specific products and tools to get the job done properly.
Not only is there the risk of you choosing an inappropriate method when you try to remove paint from bricks yourself, such as sandblasting, pressure washing, or using chemicals/products/tools that are inappropriate for the task at hand - but there's also the amount of work involved too.

No, not using our method of DOFF steam cleaning and TORC cleaning, a non-invasive way of removing brick paint that actually restores character, not just removing paint. Other methods like jet washing or high pressure cleaning will however remove more than just the paint.
Yes but it is not advised as the high pressure will likely also remove mortar, brick patina and character as well as parts or the surface of the brick so it should be avoided.
