Maintenance

Artificial stone

Artificial stone consists of cement and crumbling. It is a matter of course that its durability is shorter that that of natural stone. We can prolong the durability and aesthetics of the artificial stone by using preserving preparations such as Bistrol, Diava or Sidolux. The best means for maintaining the memorial is to take care of it from the very beginning. The owner should have their memorial smoothed again and repaint it regularly. Many people cause destruction of their memorials via their own mistakes. For example, plastic buers are inappropriate. The plastic together with wax can bu and destroy artificial stone. Another big mistake is using buers with metal cover and wreaths including metal elements. Metal corrodes very quickly and rust soaks into the microstructure of the artificial stone. Later it can hardly be removed. We advise to use standard candles and buers with aluminum cover in lantes. Wreaths should be without metal elements (from plastics, or organic)

Natural stone

Marble and grain belong to natural stones. They are cut or shaped bespoke and polished as well. Marble is more absorbent and tender than grain. This means its durability is shorter than that of grain. During the winter, water soaks through it and tears the marble. Its surface begins to squirm and various weeds and moss start to grow on it. This process cannot be stopped – it can only be slowed down by cleaning the surface. Unfortunately, rust, or dirt too can soak through marble. Because of this, all the accessories used on such marble memorial should be stainless. Polishing and cleaning is important too, if one wants their memorial to last longer. Old marble can be over grind as well. Grain is less absorbent and harder than marble. Grain too can be of better or worse quality. There is no need to take care of grain so frequently. Time by time it is good to polish the surface. It is important to use also stainless accessories, so that rust does not discard the surface or colour of the plate.

Accessories

Accessories are all decorative or utility articles attached to or laid on a memorial. Lantes mean the biggest problem. Many times it is necessary to buy a new lante because the old one is but. This can be prevented by using only buers with aluminum cover. Lantes should be stainless and bronze with protective filter. These do not corrode. Their surface can dim after some time; however they can be polished such as silver. Another problem is vases. People forget about the fact that water in vases freezes and destroys them. If vases include filler, it should be taken out during winter. The owner should control the vase itself as well, to see if there is a hole in it to let water out. If the hole is missing the water can destroy the vase. We recommend covering vase and lantes during winter to preserve them.

Bonds

Parts of memorial stones are bond with standard cement. This means that their life will not be long. Cement bonds tend to detach from each other and fall out. We recommend replacing cement with silicone-rubber substance – its durability is three times longer than that of cement.
