Natural stone floors won’t come completely clean from regular mopping. This is because natural stone and stone tile are incredibly porous, which means the surface can absorb stains and spills. To clean stains from stone we recommend a professional stone floor cleaning from the best floor cleaners.
There is not one single correct way to clean natural stone. In fact, cleaning stone floors can vary greatly depending on the type of stone and grout you have. That’s why we always customize how we clean natural stone to make sure we get it as clean as possible.
First we scrub grout lines with a pre-spray. Then we extract dirt and grime from the stone using a high-pressure rotary wand. Finally, our 3-step polishing process uses a series of buffer pads to polish your stone, removing etching and light scratches.
We offer in-home demonstrations of our stone cleaning process so you can see it for yourself before you book a cleaning.
An application of Stanley Steemer’s clear sealant or color sealant protects your stone and creates a stain-resistant surface.
Natural stone is a porous material that absorbs soil and spills, just like carpet. Applying a sealant creates a protective barrier, making it easier to clean up spills before they soak in.
If your grout has deep, stubborn stains, we recommend our premium color sealant to restore it to a uniform color while offering all the benefits of our clear sealant. You can even choose a completely new color to transform the look of an entire room.
Avoid household cleaners that contain vinegar or acidic agents, which can damage your natural stone floors.
Cover high-traffic areas of your stone with floor mats to protect from dirt and damaging debris.
If you spill on your natural stone, wipe it up quickly before it can be absorbed into the pores of your stone.
