Cleaning Tests at the Sherman Building, Armed Forces Retirement Home

31 Oct

Aeon principal conservators Lane Burritt and Alfonso Narvaez recently performed cleaning tests on the marble Sherman Building located on the historic campus of the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Washington, DC. Built in 1857 the Sherman Building was badly damaged in last years’ earthquake. Aeon was brought in by The Christman Company to assist them and designers Quinn Evans Architects determine appropriate cleaning methods for the historic marble. Aeon is testing mild cleaning methods including D/2 Biological, MasonRE Rust Remover, the Quintek water misting system and the Rotec Vortex micro-abrasive cleaning system.
