MAINTAINING & CARING FOR NATURAL STONE TILE

Thursday, February 8, 2018

Natural stone is very durable, especially when properly installed and cared for. In terms of care & maintenance, it’s important to remember that all natural stones must be sealed and you should NOT use any harsh chemicals for cleaning it.  A variety of care and maintenance products can be found at MORE Surface Care.

Sealing the stone is essential to keeping the surface stain free.  The frequency of sealing will depend on traffic and use of the surface.  A high performance, water-based, penetrating stone sealer that forms an invisible barrier which provides a maximum protection against the toughest oil and water-based stains, such as MORE’s Premium Stone Sealer is recommended.  This is the right choice for most demanding professionals and expert stone craftsmanship.  It is suitable for all natural stones.    

Do not use all-purpose cleaners on natural stone, their harsh acids, ammonia and/or abrasives can discolour, stain, dissolve, or dull your stone. We recommend a mild PH neutral soap with water such as MORE’s Stone & Tile Cleaner.  Be sure to clean up spills and stains as soon as they happen. If you have natural stone floors, invest in an entry mat to clean off any dirt and grit, which can cause scratches or pits when it comes in contact with the natural stone.  Floors should be dusted and mopped frequently, using a clean, non treated dry dust mop or broom.
