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 lichen & algae on a historic monument can be aesthetically pleasing, so the first question is why even clean the monument?   The simple answer is that the mold, mildew, algae, & lichens 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.

D/2 Biological Solution

As a monument conservator for over fifteen years, I have used many monument cleaners over the years.  However, since 2007 I have exclusively used D/2 Biological Solution in my monument restoration business, Texas Cemetery Restoration LLC.  Many people have asked me where they can purchase D/2 Biological Solution and until now it was not generally available to individuals or small cemeteries.  I am pleased to now make D/2 Biological Solutions available for purchase in 5 gallon or 1 gallon sizes.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me by phone or email with any questions.
