How to Use D/2 Biological Solution to Clean a Gravestone

This video shows step-by-step how to use D/2 Biological Solution to clean a historic gravestone or monument.  Sometimes the moss and mold on a historic monument can be aesthetically pleasing, so the first question is why even clean the monument?   The simple answer is that the moss and mold are feeding on the stone and thus, actually destroying the monument.  The next question to ask is whether the monument is in stable enough condition to clean.  As you will learn in this video, the first rule of cemetery conservation and preservation is do no harm.

Enjoy!  And let us know if you any questions.

Arkansas Historic Preservaion Program

The Bold Pilgrim Cemetery is a fascinating cemetery with a rich history.  Click here for more information regarding the Bold Pilgrim Cemetery! According to the Bold Pilgrim Cemetery Preservation Association, Bold Pilgrim Cemetery:

 . . . has served the African American community of rural Conway County, Arkansas, since the late 1800s. Unlike many cemeteries of that era that were tied to specific churches, Bold Pilgrim was a community based cemetery and served members of many churches . . .  Bold Pilgrim Cemetery is located about seven miles northwest of Morrilton, Arkansas, in Conway County off State Highway 9 at the end of Bold Pilgrim Road.

[The cemetery is believed to contain] . . . 564 gravesites.  Ninety-six of the 564 graves within Bold Pilgrim are marked with commercial or homemade headstones that are still legible and document the date of death of the person interred.  The inscriptions on other gravestones have been obscured by age and/or the elements and cannot be deciphered.  A large number of graves are marked by simple sandstone field markers.  The remaining graves are visible only as depressions.  Commercial headstones are made of sandstone slabs, white marble, limestone, granite, fancy marble, and bronze World War I and II tablets.  Motifs on the decorated stones include the pointing finger, lamb, sheep, a flying dove, a carved marble stump, the cross, shepherd’s crook, and a star with the phrase ‘The Lord is my Shepherd.”  Commercial stone shapes include pedestals, carved rolls, triangles, semi-circular top bevels, and rectangles with and without bevels.  Stones for four women were provided by burial societies.  Three are from the Mosaic Templars of America.  The fourth is from the International Order of Twelve Knights and Daughters of Tabor.
