The Stucco Manufacturers Association has published a memo called “The Care and Maintenance of Stucco.” The page document gives several tips on cleaning Portland cement and how to maintain its structure through regular maintenance and cleaning.

The document begins, “Minimal care will keep a Portland cement plaster (stucco) building attractive for many years.  The simple act of washing, as with metal, wood and masonry building will keep the surface clean and the color bright.”

Several examples are shown in this memo. For more information, contact the SMA’s Executive Director Norma Fox at
