Cleaning stone buildings can be a double-edged sword: It can bring beauty and elegance to facades and streetscapes, but it also can have disastrous unintended consequences if the wrong materials or techniques are used.
This session will cover the appropriate and inappropriate applications of different stone cleaning methods, addressing when to clean, types of soiling and their interaction with stone substrates, various cleaning methods and their appropriate and inappropriate use. Participants will learn through a combination of lecture and hands-on activity, testing and trying different methods outside the lecture room. This session will be valuable to enthusiasts and homeowners, as well as to professionals.
Please note: This practical CPD session will take place onsite at 54 Bell Street. Light lunch and all PPE will be provided. Please wear close-toed shoes.
