How do you remove mortar from cinder block walls?
Mortar is used to bond blocks, bricks, and other similar materials together to create a solid wall or frame. It will act as a type of glue that will keep building materials attached and strong. Mortar is comprised of cement, hydrated lime, sand and water that creates a strong cement like mixture that is used in many different building applications. Some types of specialty mortars may have mix-ins that allow it to be stronger and more resistant to different types of weather. When replacing a wall, the mortar that has dried to solidify bricks or blocks together will need to be removed so that the bricks can be removed or re-used. There are many different ways to accomplish this; however, it may be best to stay away from strong chemicals if doing this on your own. Strong chemicals may cause harm to you or to the surrounding are, so it is recommended that strong chemicals be used by experienced professionals. The most efficient way to remove mortar on your own will be using normal tools that many often have at their property. These tools can also be found at Lowes, Home Depot, Walmart, or other simple home improvement stores around Saint George for a very cheap price. Using a chisel and a hammer, begin to chisel away the mortar by lightly tapping the chisel with the hammer as the tip of the chisel is pressed up against the mortar. You will do this until almost all the mortar is gone. You may need to continue to scrape the mortar off for all of the sides of the black so that new mortar can be spread along the surface of the block so that it may be reapplied. Afterwards brush off the areas with a small broom and prepare it for new mortar to be laid on top. If mortar is not properly scrapped, then it could cause the locks installed after wards. You will want to make sure that cinder blocks are applied to a level surface, or else the wall may have a slight lean and become unstable. This can be done on your own; however, scraping mortar can be time consuming, so having an experienced worker complete this task may save you time and energy.
Can cinder blocks be reused?
Cinder blocks for construction may be reused in the creating of a wall or structure. However, reusing cinder blocks could pose a threat to heavy structures as they have become older over time. The blocks should definitely be checked for structural damage to ensure that the block can still support the amount of weight. Some other applications may be fine to reuse cinder blocks if they don not have to support heavy objects or structures. Reusing cinder bocks may also depend on the type. Some blocks will last a long time and can be reused, while some over time are more likely to give way. The best way to know if a block can be reused is to check for damage or cracks that may be on the block. If a block seems to be in good condition, then it can be reused. If a block does seem to have damage, then it may be cheaper to go and buy a new block instead of trying to repair it. Luckily, cinder blocks are not that expensive. So if there are new blocks that do have damage and cannot be reused, they can easily be replaced.
