Do you know how to prolong the life of your natural stone floors?
Posted By MyGuy
Did you know that etching is a common occurrence found on many natural
stones like Marble and Travertine? Etching looks like a dull spot and
it is caused by acidic liquids such as juice, coffee and soda. Polishing
your stone is the only way to remove etches marks.
Sealers minimize penetration of spills and stains; however they cannot
protect these stones from etching.
A common myth is cleaning with vinegar. However, Vinegar leaves a sticky
residue forcing you to clean more often.
Vacuuming and dust mopping polished surfaces will greatly reduce the need
for professional refinishing of polished natural stone surfaces.
For most active homes, sealed with a good sealer, every-other-year is sufficient.
