Tips for Maintaining, Cleaning, and Protecting Your Stone

Amant’s Floor Care – Tips for Maintaining, Cleaning & Protecting Your Stone

Critical Care Tips for Stone

Maintenance:

The three most important tasks that can be done on a daily basis to keep your stone looking new and extending the time before restoration is required: dust mop, dust mop & dust mop.  The most destructive material to stone is dust, dirt, sand, small gravel and miscellaneous grit.  This can be performed by using a non-treated dry dust mop or a vacuum with NO wheels and a soft bristle floor attachment.

Cleaning:

ONLY use moisture when needed (example; spills, wet feet or muddy paws).  If needed, must use neutral based cleaner or plain water.  Never use an acid based cleaner, except vinegar or etching can occur.

Protecting:

All stone should have a penetrating sealer applied annually.  This helps keep the stone and its grout from staining so quickly.

DO’S & DON’Ts

We strongly recommend that you follow these Do’s and Don’ts:

Do’s

  • Do dust mop floor frequently.
  • Do clean surfaces with a neutral detergent or stone soap.
  • Do thoroughly rinse and dry the surface with clean, clear water after washing.
  • Do blot up spills immediately.
  • Do protect floor surfaces with non-slip mats or area rugs and countertop surfaces with coasters, trivets or placements.

Don’ts

  • Don’t use vinegar, lemon juice or other cleaners containing acids on marble, limestone, travertine or onyx surfaces.
  • Don’t use cleaners that contain acid such as bathroom cleaners, grout cleaners or tub and tile cleaners.
  • Don’t mix bleach and ammonia; this combination creates a toxic and lethal gas.
  • Don’t ever mix chemicals together unless directions specifically instruct you to do so.
  • Don’t use vacuum cleaners that are worn.  The metal or plastic attachments or the wheels may scratch the stone’s surface.
