Hello, following the destruction of chimneys in an old apartment, we discovered a wall of bricks. We would like to keep in decor but the bricks are very damaged (broken, cracked, spalled, cement residue, etc...) Is it possible to renovate this wall? and make him look better? Thank you, good day

I add that even when if the bricks are crumbling due to age, it is not possible to make anything.
They fall into dust, after a certain period.

Perhaps the glass former to "seal" that remains after does what it says frmu ?

What the two persons involved have said before is just less. We'll have to rub hard enough to get a satisfactory result.

The problem you might encounter was raised in the last message: if they are really worn down they can fall into pieces. At that time it might be more advantageous to replace the bricks.

In any case, if their condition allows, you can give them a second life

One of the most effective remedies for cleaning brick walls is to use the laundry Saint-Marc, this is perfect for this type of cleaning.

First, it must mix with boiling Leau, and wash the wall with this mixture.

If your wall has spots that do not really want to come off, we recommend you add a little water to bleach your preparation.

As a last resort you can also use the products to clean the windows are barbecues and fireplaces Insertion. Sils are capable to overcome task soot stuck, they nauront no problem with your bricks!


Focus Cleaning bricks lorsquil you can douvrir windows for ventilation so that your wall dries more quickly.

It will also provide a way to recover what will fall down, think the only cover with a tarp so that the liquid not dirty dirty does your soil.

Allow efficient equipment: drop small sponges to scrub and instead use a brush that will scratch very hard at depth (as suggested frmu)

Make sure you can do that which does not use your brush on else is dirty bricks, the goal is not scamper away dirt :)
