Stone Care & Maintenance

SEALING

Stone can be very porous and may be susceptible to staining, making the sealing process extremely important.

Sealers do not make stone water or stain proof, but instead increase its reaction time to contaminants, allowing you to clean up before the stone’s surface is penetrated.

Sealing stone before and after grouting is advisable since fine grout colour particles can stain stones with higher porosity or surface voids.

ROUTINE CARE

Sealing is the most important initial step toward routine stone care.

Spills should always be wiped up immediately—particularly anything acidic which can etch through the protective sealant barrier.

Regularly sweep to remove dirt and debris that can damage the stone’s surface and clean with a pH-neutral cleaner that does not contain acid, bleach or ammonia.

Towel drying will help prevent streaking, especially on polished surfaces.

RESTORATION & DEEP CLEANING

In high traffic areas, deep cleaning is suggested every 6-12 months.

Avoid using cleaners with acid, bleach or ammonia, which will etch and discolour the stone.

Remember that stone wears naturally over time, adding to its beauty.

Grout Care & Maintenance

SEALING

Sealing grout is very important as it is extremely porous.

If you start noticing your grout joints darkening when they are exposed to water, it is time to reseal.

ROUTINE CARE

Make sure that cleaners are pH neutral or grout compatible.

Always clean up dirt and spills promptly to keep it from soaking into the grout.

Using a grout compatible cleaner regularly will reduce the need for deep cleaning in the future.

RESTORATION & DEEP CLEANING

In high traffic areas, deep cleaning is suggested every 6-12 months (perhaps more often in wet areas such as showers where grease and soap build-up can accumulate).

Avoid using cleaners with acid, bleach or ammonia.

Three Types of Sealers

PENETRATING

Usually has no surface sheen

Maintains natural colour of stone

Penetrates stone to form a barrier just below the surface, making it more resistant to stains

ENHANCING

Type of penetrating sealer

Darkens and enriches the natural colours of the stone, often significantly changing its appearance

Most enhancers must be buffed off the surface after application to prevent excess sealer from clotting and tracking (enhancers cannot be removed and should be used with caution.)

TOPICAL

Adds a semi or high gloss finish, enhancing the natural colours of the stone

Creates a surface coating to help repel oil and water

Becomes the “traffic” layer and is subject to wear, therefore requiring regular maintenance
