Sand, dirt, and grit do the most damage to natural stone surfaces due to their abrasiveness. Floors should be dust mopped frequently using a clean, dry, dust mop or broom. A vacuum cleaner can be very helpful but use one without a beater bar to avoid scratching your beautiful floor. Vacuum attachments can be great for hard-to-reach areas. Walk-off mats or area rugs on either side of exterior entrances will help collect loose dirt before it reaches your stone floor.
Your stone will require regular sealing. It is recommended that you seal your stone at least once per year. Stone sealer can be purchased at most stores. We recommend the best quality and an impregnating type if possible. Typically, sealing can be done by you and does not require a professional. However, if you have a large area of flooring or large showers you may need some assistance.
Dealing with Stains & Spills
Call on us to suggest specialty products designed for cleaning your new stone floors. A neutral pH detergent or pure soap can be used with warm water for spills or periodic cleaning. Be sure to rinse the floor thoroughly and dry the surface with a soft, clean cloth. Too much cleaner or soap may leave a film or cause streaks. Do not use products that contain lemon juice, vinegar, or other acids on marble, limestone, or travertine. Also avoid using products that contain abrasive or ammonia-based cleaners. These products will dull the luster of your stone.
