Monument Cleaning

Monuments can become dirty or stained by air pollution, hard irrigation water, tree sap, birds or any number of other sources.  Properly cleaned, a monument will be truly a fine piece of memorial art.

Some tips on cleaning a monument:

  • Use lots of clean water.  It may take as much as 20 gallons to clean an average monument.

  • Do not use a pressure washer.

  • Do not use any soap or other chemicals.

  • Get the monument thoroughly wet before cleaning.

  • Use a fiber or nylon brush, not a wire brush.

  • Start cleaning at the bottom with just water and elbow grease and work your way up to the top.

  • Rinse thoroughly with more clean water.

  • Do not let the monument dry until you are finished rinsing.

  • Some monuments will require more than one cleaning depending on how stained or dirty it is.

  • Should you need a more effective cleaning, please see your local MBNA monument builder for further advice or service.
