Cleaning Stones

We frequently get asked about the best ways to clean gravestones.  We’ve decided to share broad guidelines from different community authorities to give you a sense of what we think is best.  However, each gravestone and each situation is unique…. we recommend that you gather a foundation knowledge and then contact the professionals to make a plan! Be sure to work with the cemetery commission, friends group, and community authorities whenever making plans for conservation.
