How to Clean and Maintain a Granite Bench Memorial

If you want to keep your loved one's granite bench memorial looking its best for many years to come, you will need to clean and maintain it from time to time.
The process of cleaning it is fairly straightforward. All you need to do is follow these four simple steps:
  1. Fill a bucket with clean (preferably distilled) water.
  2. Dip a soft cloth or brush in the water and gently scrub away any debris.
  3. Apply a small amount of household glass cleaner to the bench once the debris is gone.
  4. Wipe the bench down gently until it has a streak-free, polished finish.
Do not use any industrial cleaners or chemicals to clean your loved one's granite bench memorial. These materials may stain or otherwise damage the bench.
It is generally best to clean outdoor granite monuments about once a year. If you clean them more often than that, you may begin to wear down the stone. If you clean them less frequently than that, the debris will be very difficult to remove.
