Calcium Buildup on Saltillo and Cantera Fountains
With constantly running water, fountains generally develop a deposit buildup over time. This is a common problem, regardless of the fountain’s stone or tile type. For the Saltillo and cantera fountains in this Phoenix home exterior, the buildup was mainly composed of calcium. Cleaning calcium buildup on Saltillo and cantera can be difficult without the proper tools and cleaning solutions, and DIY methods can damage the tile or stone. Thankfully, our Phoenix clients had the good sense to leave the job to us.
Our Fountain Restoration Process
We used a process called dustless media blasting to carefully remove the calcium build up without doing any damage to the Saltillo tiles or the cantera surface. Once the tiles were completely restored, we applied a coat of sealer to protect the porous tiles.
Our clients were very pleased to see the calcium build up removed and their fountains looking fresh and clean once again.
