How should I care for my natural stone floors?

Q. How should I care for my natural stone floors?

A. First, invest in quality cleaning tools. A cleaning chore—any cleaning chore—is never a matter of a cleaning product only. The implements—cleaning rag, paper towel, scrubbing pad, squeegee, etc.—are important considerations, as well. A good quality mop and the proper mop bucket are critical to obtaining the best results when mopping your highly polished stone or porcelain floor. We have found that sponge mops are not the best choice for highly polished stone floors. A better choice would be a good sized, closed-loop cotton string mop. However, the very best mops are micro-fiber mops. Whichever type you use, it is always a good idea to have a couple of mops, so that when one is dirty, all you have to do is throw it into the washing machine and use another one in the meantime. A quality mop bucket and ringer is very important and will allow you to clean large floors with little water, while constantly using a clean solution. For more floor care information refer to our Stone and Tile Care Guide. For advice beyond regular cleanings please ask your professional stone and tile restoration contractor, or if you need a PRO, contact us
