I WAS CONTACTED BY ONE OF THE LOCAL CHURCHES AND THEY WANT TO HAVE THE STONE CLEANED AROUND THE BASE AND THE SILLS....QUESTION WHAT WOULD BE THE BEST WAY TO DO THE SILLS WITHOUT STREAKING. THE BRICK... THEY DON'T WANT THE WHOLE BUILDING DONE....NOTE THE STONE IN THE PICTURE IS DRY...THANK YOU IN ADVANCE...church.jpg

The SOP for cleaning hard stone surfaces like this is to pre-moisten with a hose end sprayer with water and Green Wash. The idea is to create a pathway for the chems in the next step to wick in or follow the moisture deeper into the stone. The Green Wash allows the water to break the surface tension on the stone and allow the water to be drawn into the stone. Then use a stronger softwashing solution. I'd recommend as much as a 50/50 bleach to water with one ounce per gallon Green Wash in the mix. This will blend with the water now in the stone from step one and wick deeper into the stone.

May I also recommend adding some magic pixi dust to the mix as well to kick the bleach up a notch.

Hope this helps.

 Id treat the stone under windows the same. However watch the window frames. Dont strip the powder coat off if they are aluminum.

AC, applied the 3%mix  plus PD and the green wash ...didn't even phase it so i tried f9. 50/50 nothing, tried it full strength ....removed a little with the use of a brush ......SOOOO.   anything left in the bag of tricks....did have a sidewalk foreman walk by and he suggested sand blasting...lol....my next move is to powerwash it with my 4000psi unit at 6 gpm and see if that puts a dent in it,,,,, unless anyone else has a better idea.....
