Stone Cleaning


The beautiful, sculptural detail of high altars and historic statuary offer the perfect place for dirt and grime to collect over time. Often made of marble, a very soft stone, the cleaning and conservation has to be done gently. We use a latex based cleaner that envelopes the dirt and dries to a flexible coating that can then be peeled away. Surface dirt that remains is washed away using conservation-grade solutions that do not harm the stone.
