Professional Tombstone Restoration & Cleaning Services
Upstate Memorial Care is a professional tombstone restoration & cleaning company dedicated to the preservation and care of monuments, memorials, bronze markers & plaques. Under our care your monuments and memorials will be well kept and maintained ensuring them a long life without the need for any expensive restoration services down the road.
Memorials are built to focus attention on a place, event, life or milestone. They can honor the life of someone who has passed, commemorate a fallen soldier or serve as a reminder of a significant point in time. Memorials are erected to help keep history alive, it is important that we do our part by visiting and caring for these important cultural icons.
Overtime an unkempt memorial will break down and fall victim to the elements. Air, moisture, minerals, industrial pollutants, bird droppings, acid rain, salt, dirt, and dust all work together to slowly degrade our memorials, monuments and bronze plaques. Weathered, stained and broken memorials imply that they were neglected and unimportant. A memorial once meant to be a symbol of honor and acknowledgment becomes a remnant of its past, something ignored and often forgotten. This is what will happen to all memorials unless a proactive approach is taken.
It is a lot easier and less expensive to preserve a memorial than it is to restore a memorial. Regular maintenance and care should be scheduled for any new memorial, bronze plaque or monument. Depending on the memorial, with anywhere from one to a few scheduled cleanings a year, you can curtail the damaging effects of the environment. Giving you a beautiful, enduring memorial to visit, honor and reflect upon.
