Is Poultice Cleaning for you?
Poultice cleaning is a specialised, water-free method of deep cleaning stone. It cleans gently, drawing out any contamination that has penetrated the surface which would be difficult or impossible to remove using other methods. It is the perfect solution for cleaning when the use of water, dust producing cleaning methods or chemical cleaning cannot be tolerated.
Cleaning masonry with poultices is one of the gentlest and safest ways of cleaning stonework but it can produce astonishingly effective results. It is particularly suited for cleaning:
- statues and other architectural detailing
- soft or weakened stone
- internal stonework
- stucco, gypsum based plasters and wood
- heavily stained stonework
- carbon, soot and smoke staining
Sometimes building cleaning reveals underlying stains on the otherwise clean stonework. Poultice cleaning can be applied locally to remove or reduce the staining.

How can you Benefit from APT Poultice Cleaning?
Poultice cleaning is at its most effective in the hands of an expert. Call us now on 01495 308 048 to have a chat about what we can do for you.
Our trained cleaning technician will apply our self-vulcanising poultice cleaning paste which slowly solidifies. As it does, capillary action draws out the contamination and staining which becomes locked within the molecular structure of the poultice. The solidified poultice can then be carefully removed, taking with it the contamination and soiling. For particularly heavily soiling, further applications may be needed.
Our staff undergo a rigorous training programme before they are sent out 'into the field' to use poultice cleaning on your stonework. They follow continued professional development courses as new methods, materials and equipment are developed. You can thus be assured of the most up-to-date methods delivered by staff who are at the top of their game.
