How do you go about working out the price? Does it take a long time to achieve similar results to your OP pics?

Interesting thread

Wouldn't want to get the chemicals wrong and ruin a headstone

Might end up with your own headstone

Do you jetwash the stone or use brush? This could be a good add on, me thinks

I think it's a really good idea James do you advertise this with before and after pics would be a bit insensitive surely? I think its a brilliant idea by the way

Thanks and yes I do use them before and after photos

I don't think it is insensitive at all as I block out all name on the head stone .

I do and I advertise it on social media too .

Other wise your not going to get people to know that you do it . At the end of the day it is a service and if they want it they will contact you .

I have just had 2 come in today

I told you Jim you are on to a good un

Those pics you sent me are like night and day

Pity i only have a crematorium near me..anyone want their ashes cleaned?:confused:

 

I'd feel a bit guilty spray a load of hypo over people's graves lol doesn't feel right.

 

Adam you do realise there is a lot worse going on underground with decomposition etc that a bit of hypo on a bit of stone makes no difference whatsoever.. just being pragmatic but it is life mate.. especially if like me you don't believe in religion.. I'm sure once i have popped my clogs that a bit of hypo on my headstone won't bother me at all

did 1 last weekend with no nonsense degreaser, came up lovely. Custy was crying when she saw how well it came up. Felt good to do something that important so well. Not going to advertise it but will do if asked/mention it to certain custys.
