As more people choose to make their burial arrangements in advance, a great deal of attention is given to the selection of Monuments in CT. Details like the size, the shape, and the inscription on the monument are likely to be considered closely before the final decision is made. What is sometimes lacking is some thought about how those monuments will be maintained in the years to come. Here are some points to consider now, so that loved ones will be able to ensure the monuments continue to look their best as time passes.
Choosing a Cleaning Agent
There is no such thing as a single cleaning agent that’s ideal for all Monuments in CT. The best approach is to consider the material used for the monument and select an agent accordingly. This is not as hard as it may seem. A professional can suggest something to help remove residue from a marble monument. Something different will work better if the monument happens to be composed of granite. Consult with the professional who creates the monument and discuss what sort of product would work best.
How About Tools?
Are brushes always fine for use on monuments? Could it be that some materials should be cleaned using other types of tools? This is another area where the type of material used for the monument makes a difference. If the material is sealed using some type of protective coating, that also needs to be taken into consideration. It may be that a soft bristle brush is fine for cleaning, but one with hard bristles could scratch the surface or damage the coating to the point that it can no longer protect the underlying material.
Depending on the detail found on the monument, it pays to have tools in different sizes. Brushes that can fit in tiny nooks and crannies along with scrapers that take care of larger areas would be a good start.
