Unfortunately like most exterior surfaces depending where they are located, are prone to pollution, dirt and organic matter. Over time it builds up and form layers which can make the important details for for gravestone, monument, memorial or statue unclear. Organic matter can include moss, algae, lichen, mould and several others.
It's only stone gravestones, monuments and statues that are affected either. Unfortunately polished headstones made from marble are affected by the weather, pollution and organic matter which builds up and can deteriorate the surface.

At Cambridge Soft Wash we have a different approach to cleaning gravestones, monuments and statues.
Firstly we don't use noisy pressure washer equipment which isn't suitable for peaceful environment such as a graveyard and can damage both regular stone and polished. Instead we use the power of science utilising chemistry via a cleaning process called softwashing combined with low pressure pumps and soft delicate brushes and nozzles.
Because this process doesn't damage surfaces when cleaning a gravestone, monument, memorial or statue it is a perfect solution and is sensitive enough for a situation which demands it.
The softwashing process is eco-friendly, able to remove stains, all organic matter such as moss, algae, lichen and mould etc which has built up over time.
Not only does softwashing remove organic matter but because it is a scientific process it prevents the growth of organic matter for up to three times longer compared with traditional gravestone, monument, memorial and statue cleaning services which use pressure washing.
During the quotation we conduct a thorough inspection and risk assessment.
We then being preparation work which includes protecting surrounding areas, take necessary precautions whilst choosing the correct soft wash cleaning solution for the stone and begin cleaning. Because the soft wash gravestone, monument and statue cleaning process is efficient, cost effective and non-damaging the item being cleaned will look refreshed and stay protected for up to three times longer against future organic infections.
