Question: Cleaning Moss and Stains off Headstones

By John Bliss 5

You need to call a head stone company, preferable the one who sold the product you are talking about. If not, find out what a local head stone company would offer. All stones are made differently, some local product. Polished granite versus natural granite--limestone, sandstone, each takes a different kind of cleaning. Was out to the cemetary today and just used plain water and soft paper towels to clean off the stones.
