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.
There are many different types of stone sealers, all protecting different types of stone in different ways.
For damage that goes beyond soils, staining, and scratches, we also offer Stone Repair.
