Brick jointer maintenance and care
|All masonry tools should be cleaned thoroughly after use so that mortar does not dry on the surface and corrode the metal. Dried mortar is also very difficult to remove.|
|A few suggested cleaning methods include:
A. Using a bucket of warm soapy water
B. Using a pressure washer
C. Using a flexible putty knife (for small amounts).
D. Soaking the tools in white vinegar to dissolve the cement.
E. Using a cement removal product, (avoid strong acid formulas – Concrete mortar dissolver is advised).
