SPRING CLEAN YOUR STONE FLOORS AND LET THEM SHINE

Is your stone floor looking a little worn? Has years of traffic and movement left scratches on the once smooth finish, or is dirt ground in so deep that it looks perpetually dingy? The great thing about stone flooring is that, no matter what you do to it, a little bit of care can bring its charm back to life. It’s one of the most durable, long lasting flooring materials out there, and many spaces have retained their original stone flooring for centuries.

We’ve compiled a list of four ways to maintain your stone so it will look it’s best and last for years to come.

  1. Determine What You Have

This is an important step—restoration companies must know what they are dealing with as certain washing processes can damage specific types of stone. Try performing a small test before cleaning to make sure that there will be no additional damage once the cleaning process has begun.

  1. Deep Cleaning/Power Wash

Dirt and stains have to go somewhere, and total eradication is best. Hiring a company that specializes in stone power washing will ensure that your floors get the clean they need prior to getting the polish that makes them shine.

  1. Hard Surface Refinishing/Polishing

It’s essential to maintain the seal of stone by refinishing it every few years. Proper sealing will block out fresh dirt and keep new stains from settling in. Buffing out bumps and chips can also preserve the integrity of the stone by preventing rigid surfaces that are prone to larger chips and cracks.

  1. Repair Minor Damage

With stone, minor damage can become major damage quickly if not tended to. If you notice any significant cracks, chips, or loose stone, taking care of it immediately will eliminate the need to replace it completely.
