Natural Stone Cleaning and Maintenance
Cleaning natural stone surfaces with cleaning products is slightly more complicated than cleaning an average surface. There are two main types of natural stone used in homes, and each type requires specific cleaning supplies.
Taking care of your Stone:
Sweep and dust mop stone tile floors often.
Clean surfaces with a mild cleaning solution and a soft cloth.
Use stone cleaners that are safe for your type of stone.
Perform regular cleaning, especially in high-traffic areas.
The use of strong acidic cleaners
Use vinegar, lemon juice, or other cleaners containing acids on calcareous (marble, travertine, limestone, and onyx) surfaces.
Use vacuum cleaners on stone; the brush-roller can scratch and damage the floors.
