A major clean-up of Donegal Town Center in Ireland was undertaken by contractors and council employees in November 2000. The dirt, moss and algae that were built up on the structure were unbelievable. People had great difficulty reading any of the names inscribed on the monument.
I.C.C.T. Ltd. and Donegal Vermin Control Co. were contracted to clean and seal the monument. After cleaning, two coats of Hydrostop were applied to the brick to seal and protect the structure from weather for years to come.
Hydrostop Sealer is a high-performance penetrating sealer used by itself to protect concrete, brick, mortar and masonry from the damaging effects of water intrusion. It is also used as part of the Hydrostop Restore & Protect System to improve aesthetic appearance of aging concrete infrastructure and buildings, as well as mortar rendered structures, and provide a strong durable barrier against water intrusion.
