Historic & Heritage Preservation: Cleaning and Restoring War Memorials with APT
War memorials are an essential part of our heritage, honoring those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. However, over time, these memorials can become discolored, dirty, and damaged due to weathering and pollutants. That is where APT comes in, providing a war memorial cleaning service that restores and maintains monuments throughout the UK.
Our Heritage Preservation Cleaning Methods
As part of APT’s war memorial cleaning service, we clean and restore all stone masonry, granite, marble, and bronze war memorials. We utilise advanced techniques such as soda blasting and superheated steam cleaning to remove decades of pollutants, grime, and weathered staining. Our techniques ensure that the original surface of the monument is preserved while removing unsightly dirt and grime.
Soda blasting is a gentle, non-destructive cleaning process that is highly effective in removing tough stains, grime, and pollutants from various surfaces. The process uses sodium bicarbonate, which is propelled onto the surface being cleaned using compressed air. The sodium bicarbonate particles blast away the contaminants without damaging the underlying surface, leaving it clean and looking like new. Soda blasting is particularly effective for cleaning war memorials, as it is gentle enough to preserve delicate details and textures while removing decades of pollutants and staining.
Super Heated Steam Cleaning
Superheated steam cleaning is another advanced technique used by APT for cleaning war memorials. This process uses high-temperature steam to clean surfaces, which is effective in removing stubborn stains and pollutants without the need for harsh chemicals. The superheated steam penetrates deep into the surface being cleaned, loosening dirt and grime, which can then be easily wiped away. Superheated steam cleaning is an eco-friendly and effective technique for cleaning war memorials, as it does not use chemicals and is gentle enough to preserve the integrity of the monument while removing unsightly dirt and grime.
Recently, we had the honor of cleaning war memorials on the Isle of Anglesey. We were proud to be part of the cleaning and restoration of three memorials for Llangefni Town Council. These monuments now stand as a testament to the bravery and sacrifice of those who fought for our country, and we are proud to have played a role in their preservation.
APT has worked with organisations such as CADW, English Heritage (Historic England) & Historic Scotland to clean and restore war memorials nationwide. Our case study on the Soda Blasting website highlights our expertise in monument cleaning services.
Heritage preservation is essential to ensure that future generations can appreciate and learn from the sacrifices made by our war heroes. APT is committed to maintaining the beauty and integrity of war memorials throughout the UK, using advanced techniques that preserve the original surface of the monument while removing unsightly dirt and grime.
