Surface Protection

Once your surface is clean – Protect it

Once you’ve invested in your home to make it fresh and clean.

Why not use a surface protection to make it last even longer.

We’ve been providing professional services in Oxford & Oxfordshire areas since 1996.

Surface protection is very different from seals. Surface protections allow the stone to breathe moisture. Sealants can trap the moisture and will then show white patches which is moisture trying to escape.


Surface protection products are water-based and soak into 3/5mm of the surface of the stone. This gives a longer-lasting solution.

DOFF Steam Cleaning

Designed and developed to effectively remove paint, biological matter and general dirt and grime without causing harm or shock to the substrate, the DOFF System is capable of achieving temperatures up to 150 degrees at the nozzle end.

DOFF cleans stonework and masonry using high-temperature steam. Whilst the temperature in the system is high, the pressure on the surface being cleaned is very gentle and the volume of water is low. The surface is therefore not saturated and will be dry within minutes.

V TUFF Hot Water system

The VTUFF system is ideal for removing moss, algae, fungi and other biological matter. It will even kill off spores, resulting in much less organs growth following treatment. This means there’s then no need to use a chemical biocide during the removal process or as a protection against further biological activity. With pressure of only 100bar 12L of water per minute at 120oC its the ideal machine for our roof https://alfrescoec.co.uk/roof-cleaning/ and stone cleaning team.

Tensid Torik

The Tensid Torik Stone Cleaning System provides the option of chemical-free cleaning, without sacrificing results. Like the DOFF system, it produces a controllable stream of high pressure superheated water and steam that quickly removes grime, moss, algae, fungi and other biological matter.

Cleaning and paint removal with the TORIK system is gentle, safe and effective for use on stonework and brick masonry. It comes in best hand with:

  • Stone and Masonry cleaning
  • Grime removal
  • Algae and moss removal
  • Cleaning and sterilisation
  • Paint stripping
  • Bitumen removal
  • Graffiti and chewing gum removal
  • Oil and grease cleaning

SoftWash Systems

SoftWashing is an alternative to pressure washing and can also be part of a combined cleaning solution for you. This a more gentle way to clean stone surfaces, causing less damage and disturbance. As a result, it can be used on more surfaces and is a more cost-effective process, and in some cases this will still be pressure washing. To ensure you receive the very best from our exterior cleaning teams we suggest you request a home assessment from one of our solutions lead team.

Chemical Pre Treatment

You may be considering having your stone cleaned and sealed. Alfresco Exterior Cleaning would advise you not to use any types of seal as this will trap any moisture below the seal. This can then reveal itself to you a few months later with white patches under the surface, almost like a milk effect.
