Some limestone, if improperly treated, will stain when overexposed to moisture. In this situation, water sensitive minerals oxidized and turned the stone’s surface dark brown. Chemical and mechanical tests were conducted to determine the best solution for stain removal. Once the stone was cleaned and restored, a sealer specifically designed and tested for this limestone was applied through a multi-step process.
- Only tested and approved sealers are applied.
- Landscape and irrigation systems are designed for minimal impact.
- Grounds keepers are trained and provided the supplies and equipment needed to maintain the stone’s appearance and condition.
