Cleaning Granite

  The complete grave site is inspected for cracks and broken or damaged concrete.

New Plymouth Cemetery

Headstone cleaning consists of a specialised cleaning chemical which is applied to the headstone and with gentle water pressure the headstone and complete site are cleaned of all moss, lichen and dirt. This process completely removes any old paint in the lettering and the headstone is left to dry.
As with any painting job the preparation is the most important part.

(See the re lettering page for the next step on lettering)


At this stage any concrete or plastering work is undertaken and left to set.
If painting of the grave site is required then this is completed at this point.
When the headstone cleaning is finished a long term moss killer (Wet & Forget) is applied to the headstone and the complete grave site.

This will prevent the moss roots from attaching to the headstone for a few years and then further applications are recommended every 2 to 5 years to prevent this happening.

Cleaning White Marble

New Plymouth Cemetery

  Like the Granite headstone the grave site is inspected for broken or damaged areas.

These older White Marble headstones usually have lead lettering tapped into the lettering grooves and if the lead is still there it is possible to tap the lead back into the headstone before cleaning commences.
(See the re lettering page for further details)

Heastone cleaning consists of a a specialised marble cleaning chemical which is then applied and with gentle water pressure both the headstone and complete grave site are cleaned of all moss, lichen and dirt.
At this stage any concrete or plastering work is undertaken and left to set.

When the headstone cleaning is finished a long term moss killer (Wet & Forget) is applied to the headstone and the complete grave site.
It usually takes around 10 days for the marble to become pure white again as it takes time for all the (now dead) moss roots embedded in the stone to "weather out".


Prices start from $290.00 + GST for cleaning and lettering, the whole job.




Wow, that is so great. I find it hard to believe it. Before you started it was a lot worse than I expected.
Many thanks for the care you have taken and for such a joyous result.
It was a professional job you did on our family headstone.

I wish to thank you most sincerely for doing such an amazing job on my father's headstone. It is so difficult for us all living in Sydney to keep it continually in good condition. We are so relieved that it is all done and looking like it did 56 years ago.
