BRONZE MONUMENT CLEANING

MAINTENANCE & CONSERVATION

 CLEANING BRONZE MONUMENTS IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF THEIR CONSERVATION 

Bronze monument cleaning and conservation should be undertaken regularly and be part of a maintenance program. In common with other types of outdoor bronze features, such as war memorials, bronze monument cleaning and the application of new wax protective coating needs to be undertaken frequently.   

Cleaning bronze helps to slow down degradation and can prevent other costly treatments becoming necessary. This is relevant to  contemporary bronze statues as well as historic ones. 

It may be necessary to do more than bronze  cleaning if the monument is in very poor condition. Cleaning and conservation treatments can stabilise an object and reduce disfiguration but they cannot restore a bronze’s intended patina.  

Bronze restoration may be necessary when the original patina has become seriously damaged or disfigured by corrosion or vandalism. One monument restoration project, we recently undertook was The Aldersgate Flame at The Museum of London. 

If you would like to know more about the process do read our blogpost on the project.

We specialise in looking after large collections of public art and monuments for clients such as Canary Wharf, Historic Royal Palaces and several UK Councils. Registered with multiple H&S schemes including SafeContractor, Altiusva, CHAS and Constructionline, you don’t have to worry about us not having the right protection in place to keep the public safe.

When carrying out bronze monument cleaning, we also embrace our roll as embassadors for these statues and always take the time to engage with the public during our work and tell them what we are doing and why.

When carrying out a recent monument cleaning project on, The Bomber Command Monument, in Green Park London, we talked frequently to those who visited the memorial. This was an interesting and complex project and if you’d like to know more, do read our blogpost all about it.
