Façade of the Church of the Redeemer cleaned
In the heart of Jerusalem, Kärcher cleaned parts of the outer façade of the Church of the Redeemer and created test areas for future cleaning work.
A boiler temperature of 310° F and a 40° fan jet nozzle were used during the cleaning.
Under the soiling the white limestone (meleke) typical for Jerusalem's architecture is hiding.
Old layers of paint, dusts and other layers of dirt were removed using a hot water high-pressure cleaner.
Cleaning works in the context of the complete renovation
Before the Easter holiday, Kärcher cleaned parts of the outer façade of the Church of the Redeemer in Jerusalem using a hot water high-pressure cleaner without cleaning agents or chemical additives. Additionally, test areas for future cleaning work in the context of cultural sponsorship were created.
With a HDS 12/18 in the steam mode without pressure, parts of the façade have been gently freed from old layers of paint, dusts and other layers of dirt for restoration. Once again, this brought out the white limestone (meleke) typical for Jerusalem's architecture.
In the context of the complete renovation of the German Protestant church, Kärcher offered its further support. Propst Wolfgang Schmidt is already looking forward to further cooperation: “We are looking forward to a promising project.” Also, cleaning experts of Kärcher presented the Church of the Redeemer with a wet & dry vacuum cleaner NT 35/1 Tact as a donation. The staff of the church wants to gently remove salt efflorescence from the stone surface in the cloister with it.
