The next phase is to remove the old, crumbling mortar in stages by raking and cleaning out the joints. This painstaking process can be pretty time consuming because the joints need to have all the dust, debris and old mortar removed so as to finish up with a sound bonding surface for the application of new mortar. The repointers will be especially cautious around windows, doors and openings where the movement of brickwork or an excess of mortar can result in difficulty in opening and closing them.

One thing that should be avoided is the new mortar drying out too quickly, and this can be prevented by dampening the walls. This keeps the mortar flexible and enables it to dry out at a gentler pace to avoid cracking and creating a weakened joint. Any excess mortar and smears that are left on the bricks can be cleaned off as soon as the mortar is properly dry. A wire brush is used to clean the wall areas which have been completed before moving on to the next section of the wall needing work.
