Why Do I Need To Polish My Natural Stone Surfaces?
Polishing your natural stone surfaces can leave you with a gorgeous, high-shine, surface that looks beautiful. Did you know that there are other benefits to polishing your natural stone surfaces outside of enhancing the physical appearance? The reflective shine is great but the additional benefits of polishing your natural stone surfaces include:
-Strengthening the protective seal, allowing for potentially problematic liquids such as wine and orange juice to bead on the surface for quicker and easier cleanup. If you fail to stay on top of polishing or sealing your natural stone, the surface will absorb liquids, leading to stains, etches, and costly repair and replacement.
-Provides ongoing protection against water spots and fingerprints.
-Stopping soap scum build-up on shower walls and tub surrounds.
While polishing and sealing your natural stone plays an important role in protecting it from damages, it is also important to stay on top of daily maintenance for your natural stone surfaces. When your natural stone is vulnerable, even the smallest build-up or left behind particles of food, dirt, or liquid can cause serious damage. It is important that you only clean your natural stone surfaces with specific cleaning products that are safe for the vulnerabilities of your natural stone surface. At Modern Stone Care in Houston, we make our own formula of stone cleaner to help get the best clean without damaging your natural stone surfaces.
Stone & Tile Floor Cleaner: Modern Stone Care Stone & Tile Floor Cleaner is a neutral (ph 7) marble safe floor cleaner which is to be used for regular maintenance on any hard surface not harmed by water. It was originally made to protect calcite-based stones, such as marble, limestone, & travertine, which are alkaline in nature due to the mineral content, from chemical etching. It’s no-rinse, streak-free properties make this cleaner ideal for any hard surface, as it does not leave a dulling film or residue. Special organic slats in its formula act as “moisturizers” thus preventing natural stone from “drying out.” It also contains optical brighteners to enhance the finish of the surface on which it is used.
Sealing Your Natural Stone Before Polishing
Another vital step before polishing your natural stone surfaces is making sure your stone is sealed properly. Regularly sealing granite countertops and all other natural stone surfaces help to maintain maximum surface protection, penetrating stone surfaces to provide long-lasting resistance to staining, etching, and build-up.
