The joints in the brickwork are now thoroughly raked out to remove the old, crumbling mortar and clean the spaces between the bricks. This is an extremely time consuming stage and entails the grinding or chipping away of old mortar and brushing away all the dust and loose debris to provide a nice, clean surface for the application of new mortar. The repointers will be especially watchful around doors, windows and openings where any movement of brickwork or over application of mortar can result in difficulty in closing and opening them.

When the joints have been cleaned, the brickwork should be dampened to help prevent the new mortar from drying out too rapidly and subsequently cracking. This helps create a strong joint by keeping the mortar flexible and preventing cracks. When it is sufficiently dry it's time to clean off any excess mortar and smears from the adjoining bricks. The team will work on the walls in sections, cleaning each one as they go along before starting on a new patch.
