Plus, knowing what’s expected of you regarding floor upkeep can be a determining factor in the type of natural stone flooring you purchase.
That’s why we put this section together for you. It’s about the care, considerations and cautions of maintaining a natural stone floor. Your floor.
So check over the following advice :
We strongly recommend that you seal Jerusalem stone one coat before grout and one after grout and make sure that the stone is dry before you apply the stone sealer ( please fellow manufacture instruction)
Our best advice is to fight dirty:
Sand, dirt and grit do the most damage to natural stone surfaces due to their abrasiveness.
Floors should be dust mopped frequently using a clean, non-treated dry dust mop or broom.
A vacuum cleaner can be very helpful, especially on textured floors, but it needs to be in good condition and have no beater bar, so as to avoid scratching your beautiful floor.
Vacuum cleaner attachments are also useful for hard to reach areas.
Be preventative. Walk-off mats or area rugs on either side of exterior entrances will help collect loose dirt before it reaches your stone floor.
Make sure that the underside of the mat or rug has a non-slip surface.
These mats need to be kept clean, as well.
For Stone Floors, do’s and don’ts :-
Damp mopping your natural stone floor will help keep it looking beautiful for life.
Always blot spills immediately. A neutral pH detergent or pure soap, such as Liquid Ivory, and warm water, can be used for spills or periodic complete cleaning.
Be sure to rinse the floor thoroughly and dry the surface with a soft, clean cloth. Too much cleaner or soap may leave a film and cause streaks. Change your rinse water frequently.
Do not use products that contain lemon juice, vinegar or other acids on marble, limestone or travertine.
You should avoid using products that contain abrasive cleaners, cleansers (dry or soft) or any ammonia-based cleaners on any stone. These products will dull its sheen
Also, do not use retail grout cleaners, scouring powders or bathroom tub and tile cleaners on your stone.
Fine wire wool can be used on hard limestone such as Jerusalem Stone to remove excess grout and others i.e. chewing gum
To remove algae or moss from your stone in outdoor pool, patio or hot tub areas, flush with clear water and use fine wire wool
And a few final reminders.
it’s best to take care when moving heavy objects across your stone floor to avoid scratching or chipping. Get a small army to help you move that dining room table.
Cover furniture and table legs with protectors to guard your floor against damage.
