140 Year Old Heritage Home Fire
A large fire had taken place inside a 140 year old family heritage home. The fire caused severe damage internally and externally with extensive smoke staining to the external brick work. The challenge was to remove the external staining caused by the event without removing the natural atmospheric buildup that had been gained over so many years.
Precision Laser Cleaning was engaged to undertake the restoration of the external areas of the building. Scaffolding was erected one meter either side of the affected area aside the windows over the three stories. The removal of soot and blending was undertaken using laser ablation ensure that only the affected area had to be cleaned and the original patina of the heritage brick remained.
