When it comes to cleaning natural stone surfaces you will want to be careful about the products you use on the stone. Many home cleaning products, especially bleach, are way too strong or acidic to be on natural stone. These products can strip your natural stone down, leaving it damaged and weak. Whenever your natural stone becomes damaged, the damage cannot always be repaired. Bleach is a very strong cleaning product that requires extreme caution when even used in the same vicinity as natural stone surfaces. If any bleach ever makes contact with your natural stone surface, quickly dilute it with water as fast as possible, and then completely dry your stone.
Bleach is strong enough to penetrate a natural stone’s clear sealant. Without this protective sealant your natural stone will be left vulnerable to dirt, grime, grease, acidic liquids, and more. At Modern Stone Care we provide affordable and reliable stone sealing solutions to protect your precious stone countertops, floors, and other surfaces. If you have reason to believe the sealant on your natural stone surface has become weakened or is no longer effective protection against outside influences for your stone, contact the team at Modern Stone Care in Houston.
How Do I Clean My Natural Stone Surfaces?
It is important to keep your natural stone surfaces clean to keep them in the best shape for as long as possible. When your natural stone has build-up left on it, this will eat away at the protective layer on the stone. When you work with a floor cleaning company that does not specialize in natural stone surfaces, you run the risk of having your stone damaged. The team at Modern Stone Care in Houston has expert knowledge and experience with natural stone cleaning and other protective services.
Our team has created our own formula of floor cleaner in order to protect your surfaces between professional cleaning services. We understand that it can be difficult to find cleaning products and read the label to determine if they are safe for your stone or not. Listed below is the in-house stone cleaning product we have designed to help your keep your stone looking great for as long as possible.
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 It was originally made to protect calcite based stones, such as marble, limestone, & travertine, which are alkaline in nature due to the mineral content, from chemical etching.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.
Homeowners with natural stone floors should be careful working with other companies that may claim they are able to clean all types of flooring. Modern Stone Care specializes in natural stone flooring. This is because natural stone flooring comes with many sensitivities and vulnerabilities that make it easily damaged. Oftentimes other companies come in and treat these natural stone floors the exact same way that they would handle other floors with no attention to the stone’s particular needs.
