Sealing Stone in Showers
These days, natural stone has become one of the most popular materials for the interior of showers in homes. The most common natural stone used in showers are slate, granite, marble, limestone, and in some cases even travertine. Something nearly all natural stone materials share in common is that their surfaces are highly porous. This means, the stone is full of tiny holes, making natural stone exceptionally vulnerable to moisture damage. In order to combat this vulnerability, applying a clear sealant on the stone is your best option to preserve the health and appearance of the stone. Once the sealant is applied to the stone, it will act as an invisible barrier, preventing moisture, soap scum, and grime from penetrating deep into the stone.
While all natural stone, including flooring, should be sealed regularly, it is even more important to keep a strong seal on natural stone that lines the interior of a shower. The maximum amount of time homeowners should wait between sealing their natural stone surfaces is a year. This may be too long of a period to wait when dealing with the interior of your shower, contact the professionals at Modern Stone Care to get a specific understanding of the needs of your natural stone materials.
