The first step in any restoration of burial monuments is to ensure that the structure is sound. The pros will look for any signs of cracking, flaking, or erosion to confirm that the gravestone may need more than just a standard cleaning.
Next, the restoration company will determine the type of soiling on the gravestone, and how to remove it in the most efficient way. The most common types of gravestone soiling include grime, dirt, mold, algae, oil stains, mosses, and even soot from passing cars. The type of marking or dirt, etc. on the gravestone determines the best cleaning processes moving forward.
A small, inconspicuous area of the gravestone should be tested to ensure that the cleaning solution won’t cause further damage or discoloration. Once approved as safe, the cleaning and restoration process can continue.
Only stone-safe tools and cleaning solutions should be used, and rinsed thoroughly from the gravestone to prevent cloudiness or discoloration. Sealant should never be used on a gravestone since it can do more harm than good.
