It starts with a light dry-brushing of the grave marker to remove loose dirt and debris using a natural, soft bristle bench-brush. Once brushed, the headstone is washed with clean water and a gentle soap solution and gently scrubbed. A light wash and scrub with a calcium remover is often used to help with calcium build-up or watermarks and a detail brush (such as a toothbrush) is used to reach smaller crevices, gaps, and space around the lettering. Each headstone is washed, scrubbed, and dried several times, until no more debris can be lifted. Some headstones can be bathed and brushed in under an hour, but most require 2-3 hours, and others a little more. And finally, the Bathe & Bath Service is completed with a good, clean, rinse.
