Cleaning war memorials
Witney Town Council War Memorial
When cleaning a war memorial for Witney Town Council, our specialist cleaning team treated the stone with a cleaning agent before giving it a pressure wash. This helped restore the natural colour and features of the stonework, making the meaningful inscriptions easier to read.
You must know what you are doing when cleaning stone statues. Our pressure-washing technique was abrasive enough to remove the build-up of biological growth and grime but gentle enough so as not to cause damage.
Cleaning old statues not only helps bring back their beauty and prominence but also helps maintain their structure. This one’s been standing proud in a West Oxfordshire town for over 100 years. With our help, it should serve as a fitting tribute to the fallen for many more years to come.
