Statue of Liberty
CLEANED: The exterior of this monumenthasn’t been cleaned in years because infrequent sanitising helps for its preservation. The inside part gets scrubbed often.

After testing and trying 40 techniques, finally in 2008, specialists defined the winning method. It includes a combination of ultraviolet rays and infrared lasers. However, the cleaning can be a hazardous job, so technicians wear goggles and work with the lasers only two hours per day.
