Selecting the correct natural stone tile cleaners and sealants
Natural stone and tiles come in all shapes, hardness, sizes, textures and colours. The types of stone are Marble, Granite, Limestone, Travertine, Slate, Sandstone, Blustone and similar aggregates. The gorgeous surfaces are hard-wearing with proper maintenance and application of natural stone sealers, but will show signs of wear, tear, or a general dullness, sooner than other flooring or surfaces depending on brand, skill and age of application.
Floors usually wear faster in high traffic areas, as will one well used counter-top area near the stove, over other spaces not used as often.
Irregular or improper sealing of natural stone floors and maintenance, such as the use of the wrong tile cleaning procedure or incorrect tile sealer, can leave your shiny surfaces looking dull, worn, and deteriorating.
But because natural stone is so hard-wearing, is is easily restored and doesn’t usually need to be fully replaced. Ceramex restoration includes a clean, polish, hone, grind and sealing of your Natural Stone flooring or surfaces, including Marble & Granite.
Stone surface damage types:
Natural Stone like a porous sponge can stain easily. Absorbing oils, foods, dyes, paint, inks and items commonly dropped on flooring isn’t so hazardous when the floor is sealant is in good condition.
A more common damage is the cleaning of natural stone shower tiles. Unknowingly, people use cleaners not meant for stone showers, sinks and countertops, they don’t realize the harsh store bought chemicals they are using are causing undue damage.
Scratches, chips and abrasions, which often happen without notice, even on the best sealed stone floors, occur over a long time. Sand, dust, dirt and other entities that come in the door with us can act as sandpaper, scuffing up the stone surface as you walk on your natural stone floor. Other more serious damage occurs from deep scratches from furniture, boxes, wheeled items and toys being dragged or rolled across the floor.
Acidic food items that come in contact with stone floors can cause etching, as can the wrong cleaning product, or accidentally spilled products. Instant damage can occur with some items on contact. Acidic liquids, such as pickle juice, soda pop, lemon juice, ammonia can mar and etch the surface of the stone, creating an instant appearance of dullness or spotting that becomes permanent until restored.
