Memorial Cleaning

Natural stone materials such as limestone, marble, granite, slate and sandstone are all susceptible to a wide variety of organic contaminants. Mosses, mold, mildew, algae, lichen, acidic bird droppings and windblown dirt can frequently be found covering, and growing on, memorials each year.

If your interested in having a memorial cleaned, contact the LVC Office to schedule a consultation.

Deep Cleaning

After an inspection is completed, the cleaning process can begin. The surface of the memorial is saturated in water and a mild degreasing agent is applied. The memorial is hand scrubbed using a soft bristle brush. Various detailing tools are used to clean recessed areas in the stone and around lettering.

If your memorial is approved for the use of pressurized water, this technique will be used to clean creases, corners and surface staining. Extreme care will be provided to the memorial during each step of the cleaning process.

Burial Plot Ground Restoration

Over time and through each Copper Country season, ongoing environmental changes affect our cemetery grounds. Frost, erosion, tree root expansion, severe heat and subsoil changes from burials can lead to uneven turf and poor grass growth. The staff at Lake View Cemetery is dedicated to providing continual grounds maintenance for families of the interred and to the many visitors that search our 140 acres each year.

What does Ground Restoration include?
Ground restoration of your loved one's burial plot includes all processes necessary for new turf growth. These include:

New grass will be watered to promote root development over the course of two (2) growing seasons.
