Learning Texts 14 published: Cleaning brickwork

It is vital for its long term durability that fresh brickwork is not high-pressure jet washed.

This incorrect practice is sometimes used on building sites to remove mortar splashes on newly completed units to expedite their appearance for sale. In the process, the faces of the bricks first have diluted hydrochloric acid applied to them, which is then jet washed off.
