    Problems in the design, operation, and management of public buildings are discussed in the context of cleaning masonry in monumental and historic structures, particularly those subject to intense impacts by casual visitors. Design details, patterns of usage, cleaning standards, products, and procedures are considered. Information derives from architects' observations and assessments; from comments of operations staffs; and from construction specifications, custodial handbooks, and Historic Structure Reports. The paper concludes with a summary of illustrative examples and factors that determine the effectiveness of cleaning programs.
