natural stone cleaning

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.

    • Our Stone Cleaning Process

      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.

    • Attention to Detail

      There are some places our buffer can’t reach. Our technicians will hand-polish these hard-to-reach areas of your stone floors, ensuring your entire floor looks great.

      An application of Stanley Steemer’s clear sealant or color sealant protects your stone and creates a stain-resistant surface.

    • A Protective Barrier

      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.

    • Restore Grout Color or Change it Completely

      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.
