Understand your stoneâ€™s geological classification and composition. this information will help you to identify what cleaning products to use and how best to care for your natural stone
Assessing the Stoneâ€™s Current Condition
Knowing the current condition of the stone is another critical first step.
Dust Mopping Mats/rugs Vacuum cleaners Remove spills immediately with a paper towel
Periodic Professional Care
Periodic honing and polishing by a floor maintenance contractor will maintain the lustre and more importantly, significantly inhibit resoiling and deterioration.
If a marble floor is scratched, deeply soiled, or has a build-up of yellowed wax or discoloured sealers, the lustre and natural colour can be restored by wet sanding and chemical stripping.
ď‚— Sealing makes the stone more stain resistant.
ď‚— Several factors like hardness, density, how porous is the stone etc must
be considered prior to determining if the stone should be sealed
Never attempt to remove stains or deposits by scraping, scouring, or indiscriminately applying bleaching agents, liquid marble cleaners, or other harsh chemicals.
ď‚— Water penetrating exterior wall cavities through defective flashing or
unsealed joints can cause efflorescence, a mineral salt residue left on the surface of masonry when water evaporates. ď‚— It is recommended that you contact your stone professional for a remedy.
Identifying & Removing Stains
Identifying the type of stain on the stone surface is the key to removing it. Stains can be oil based, organic, metallic, biological, ink based, paint based, acid based.
