Natural Stone Cleaning

Natural Stone Cleaning & Sealing:

As with porcelain and ceramic tile, natural stone is one of the most abused and overlooked floor and wall surface in the home, often times because of the658939 care involved in cleaning it.  Many people learn the hard way that over the counter products aren’t always the best cleaning option, and can actually etch natural stone.  Simple mopping is ineffective, and who wants to scrub stone floors on their hands and knees?

Maintenance:

General cleaners and over-the-counter cleaners not specifically formulated for natural stone or tile are never recommended.  These can breakdown the sealer, thereby removing its protective properties and making the tile susceptible to stains.  Worse yet, many cleaning products, including those that contain lemon, vinegar, bleach or ammonia can etch away the polish or discolor the tile.  Many cleaners have a chelating agent in them, which breaks down and dissolves minerals in hard water.  Since all stone is made up of minerals, these types of cleaners will dissolve and cause streaks over prolonged use.  Therefore, always clean with a neutral cleaner and one specifically for your flooring type.
