Cleaning Heritage Buildings- Carrick Fergus Castle Softwashing Case Study

Northern Ireland

Stone Restoration Case Study- Carrick Fergus Castle

What was needed?


Carrick Fergus Castle, Ireland, had become contaminated with organic growth, namely single cell green algae. This growth feeds off damp and minerals and there is very little From a heritage perspective this made the castle look poor condition, and if untreated longer term it risked damaging the stonework permanently. The custodians of the castle were obviously keen to attain great results, but also aware that all works should be as risk free as possible, with a treatment that would not put the public at any risk as this restoration was completed. Softwashing UK were invited to participate in this restoration project, and used all their expertise to deliver it on time and budget.


What we did?


Safewash, a risk free and organic external cleaning product, was used to treat and restore castle. This product has a biocidal effect, and killed and removed the offending organic growth. At no stage were workers, public, or wildlife, put at risk by chemicals, as Safewash is risk free. We operated with sensitivity as the castle is an important piece of heritage that must be respected. There were no complaints at any stage during the project. A large team were required to complete this project, and the project was expertly managed.


What were the results like


Using our expertise and the Safewash solution we were able to remove the single cell green algae, and leave Carrick Fergus Castle in great condition. You can judge for yourselves how effective the restorative treatment was by looking at the photos below. This restoration was a great success. Since this time Softwashing UK have won and completed numerous other stone restoration projects in both the public and private sector, and boast an impressive portfolio of successful stone restoration projects.
