Stone Care Tips PDF  | Print |  E-mail

Probably the biggest fear people have of natural stone is it's maintenance. By following some simple precautions; proper sealing guidelines, using correct cleaning methods and products will insure a lifetime of use from natural stone.

The best care you can give your natural stone is preventative care. Preventing stains or scratches before they happen is far easier than getting rid of them after it happens.

Carefully read the Do's and Don'ts:

The DO's

Should always follow manufacturer's guidelines while using sealers.

Should always use preventative cleaning measures.

Should always wash spills by blotting with mild soapy water.

Should always use coasters, trivets, or mats while putting something on surface.


DO NOT use any hard cleaners that contain acid on any natural stone.

DO NOT not use vinegar, bleach, ammonia, or other general-purpose cleaner.

DO NOT not hesitate to contact stone restoration professional for advice on cleaning, care, and maintenance.

DO NOT use abrasive cleaners and alkaline cleaners not meant for natural stones.

Users are advised to keep a regular maintenance schedule to keep their stone pristine. Proper cleaning guidelines should be followed and special materials meant for stones like stone soap should be used. Thorough cleaning from time to time is recommended to preserve the natural beauty of stone.
