Various Cities and Counties,
California, USA

Chemical cleaning of masonry surfaces is probably the most common method used for removing dirt, soiling, and old coatings from historic masonry surfaces. It is uually cost-effective and offers the most consistent results for the most common types of cleaning. 

Alkaline cleaning products are usually effective in breaking down organic solids, such as carbon buildup, on calcareous stones. Acid-based cleaning compounds are often the most effective cleaner for fired and ceramic surfaces. These industry-standard acid-based restoration cleaners are safe and effective on most historic masonry, except for any marbles, limestone, or calcium-based materials.
