Often the cleaning of historic building exteriors is specified in terms of a handful of commercial cleaning products.

While the Modular Cleaning Program (MCP) was designed from the perspective of paintings conservators, there is no reason that the system cannot be extended to allow rapid prototyping and testing of cleaning systems for the built heritage community.

The Modular Cleaning Program will be introduced with a focus on aqueous cleaning systems. Typical architectural cleaning systems will be examined and modeled with the MCP. The program will then be used to change parameters of the cleaning system in such a way that small batches of prototype cleaning systems could me mixed, tested and evaluated.

It is hoped that such a system would give the conservator a more prominent role in selecting cleaning systems for buildings.

Input form the audience will be solicited to direct modifications to the MCP to facilitate formulating this type of a cleaning system.
