Why is it that my stone has now lost its original shine, color and aesthetic value ?
All materials, building stones included, have 'wear and tear' or natural ageing due to constant exposures to corrosive and degradation factors in the environment (e.g. climate change, pollution, biological agents), not to mention the human factors involved, (such as foot traffic, usage, negligent care and maintenance procedures, faulty installation, construction, or design features); Likewise, building stones have inherent peculiarities making them vulnerable to 'dirt pick up', water absorption, staining, and mechanical breakdown (i.e. permeability, surface texture, mineral and chemical properties, among others...);
What will happen if I do not promptly seek professional help to institute the necessary remediation or mitigating measures?
