Effective cleaning, prepares the surface of the stone for the application of a binder or a protective agent.

 

But the process of cleaning the stone is also a dangerous process, so it must be executed with great care, if the stone causes the appearance of new cracks and deposition of soluble salts in the pores can not be avoided, this will produce a degradation in the future even more active.

 

Whereupon, to run a clean sound, we must follow these guidelines:

a) Avoid moving the original object.

b) Try not to damage or mechanical abuse of the stone. The stone material is very sensitive to shock, tears, etc.; cuarquier surface crack reduces its strength and allows water penetration.

c) To prevent the formation of soluble salts in the pores.

 

There are methods offered by modern technology in conservation asguran optimal results, for example, water as a fine mist, pappettas chemical (pH = 8), soft plastic brushes, ultrasound, microsabiaturas, etc.
