Why Do I Need to Seal my Stone Floors and Countertops?

When it comes to Stone Floors and Countertops, it is crucial to apply Stone Sealer to them once they are cleaned. While it is an optional service, it is very highly recommended as it can be damaging to the short and long term integrity of the stone leaving them unsealed.

While there are many different types of stone, they all have one thing in common. All natural stone is porous. This means that over time dirt, soil, bacteria, cleaning solutions, spills, grime, and anything your floors or counters are exposed to on a daily basis can sink into the stone causing irreversible damage. Professional cleaning methods, such as our Stone Cleaning services can be used to reverse short term damage, however once the soils sink in far enough it can be irreversible. In one of the worst case scenarios, acidic materials such as vinegar, citrus, coffee, or pet urine, and even some household alkaline cleaning solutions may cause etching if spilled on or applied to unsealed stone. Physical damage such as etching may be remediated through Stone Honing and Polishing.

Applying Stone Sealers is also beneficial for the long term look of the stone. Professional cleaning methods can be used to reverse short term soiling on unsealed stone, however once the soils sink in far enough, the damage can be irreversible. Applying stone sealer after each cleaning makes soil removal easier between cleanings as it does not give dirt the chance to sink into the porous stone and grout lines, and allows for better results with each professional cleaning as it is not an uphill battle to remove deeply penetrated soil.

Different Types of Stone Sealers

There are many different types of stone sealers, all protecting different types of stone in different ways.

  • Impregnating Sealer - Also known as solvent based sealer, this sealer is commonly used to protect marble, travertine, limestone, and granite floors and countertops. It will not change the look of the floor in any way, but does an excellent job ad providing protection against damage from spills, dirt, soils, and water based stains.
  • Color Enhancing Sealer - Generally used on Slate Floors to bring out the deep, rich colors that are inside the stone, but can be used on any type of floor or countertop.
  • Saltillo Sealer - Sealer for saltillo floors is unique in that it is a wax coating sealer. This is the only type of floor where a wax is permissible for sealing, however it must be one rated specifically for saltillo, and applied with the utmost care to ensure an even coating for protection and shine.

For damage that goes beyond soils, staining, and scratches, we also offer Stone Repair.
