Building Cleaning by laser

Grafiti Removal - Dust Removal - Carbon removal

Removal of graffiti

Graffiti is often removed by using steam or chemicals. The disadvantage of these techniques is the fact that they’re not always as effective as they should. With other techniques, like sandblasting, there is a risk of damaging or wearing down the underlying layer. This forms a problem with softer stone types and historical buildings.

Laser cleaning is very suitable for removing graffiti. The laser beams will quickly heat up the paint layer, which then will evaporate. The underlying stone or concrete layer remains cool because of its higher ablation temperature. So the laser beams will have no effect on the underlying stone or plaster layer. Even on wood or glass, paint can be removed!

When using sufficiently powerful laser sources, the removal of graffiti goes very fast. Depending on the age, the color and the thickness of the paint layer, we are able to clean a square meter full of paint in half an hour.

Thanks to its quick cleaning, laser cleaning is comparable in price to the other techniques, but has so much better results.

Lasers for Building Cleaning

The laser cleaning technology in the area of buildings and surfaces cleaning gently cleans and removes soil, dust, or “time deposits” from steel structures, sandstone, marble, granite as well as from concrete without physical damage of the surface architecture. Laser light can accurately clean coloured and pigmented surfaces, remove soot and restore the original beauty of the building. And all this without using chemicals, solvents, abrasives, water or dust and without the need for secondary waste disposal.

Extremely precise laser system performance and intensity through interchangeable laser optics provide a unique eco-friendly and innovative tool for building and facade renovation.

    Advantages:

    • Eliminates the use of solvents (climate protection)
    • Reduction of grinding and chemical cleaning resources
    • Reducing noise in inhabited parts of cities
    • Cost reduction
    • High productivity of tools
    • Reduction of the masking material
    • The process can be used safely outdoor (for example masts) and in the locations where it’s not possible to use conventional methods
