A natural stone is an investment that will give you many years of beautiful services. Granite, Quartz, Marble, Limestone and Travertine are natural products and simple care and maintenance will keep it looking beautiful. Here are some recommendations for routine care and cleaning.
How to Clean
Cleaning Procedures & Recommendations for the care of your natural stone.
Do's and Don'ts
- Do dust/ mop floors frequently.
- Do clean surfaces with mild detergent or stone soap.
- Do thoroughly rinse and dry the surface 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 placemats.
- Don't use vinegar, lemon juice or other cleaners containing acids on marble, limestone, travertine, granite, Quartz or onyx surfaces.
- Don't use cleaners that contain acid such as bathroom cleaners, grout cleaners or tub & tile cleaners.
- Don't use abrasive cleaners such as dry cleansers or soft cleansers.
- Don't use scouring powders or creams. These products contain abrasives than may scratch the stone.
- Don't mix bleach and ammonia; this combination creates a toxic and lethal gas.
- To remove soap scum in the bath use a non-acid soap scum remover or a solution of ammonia and water (about ½ cup of ammonia to a 1 gal. of water). Frequent or over-use of an ammonia solution may eventually dull the surface of the stone.
- Once a year it is recommended to use a stone sealer to prolong the finish of your stone. Stone cleansers are available in our showroom
