I doubt powder polishing will remove the sooty residue. The alkaline cleaner will work much better.

Afterwards you can powder polish. If the acidic nature of the soot has etched the stone then you may have to hone some areas.

Thanks Fred,
I'm just going to powder polish the fire place.  Would you agree with that approach.

A good alkaline heavy duty stone cleaner should clean it up before you polish.

I would use an epoxy on the crack...that should hold up better than polyester

use a silcone based caulk

I would appreciate some direction on servicing this fire place. I need to do the following:

·         Clean up the overall appearance. They are not looking for high gloss, but perhaps more clarity in the stone.

·         I need to fix a crack on the mantel, what type of adhesive would be appropriate for that type of environment that is possible high heat or warm.

·         They want the seams re-caulk, what type of caulk I can use again in area that will get warm or hot.
