Frequently Asked Stone Care Questions
Here are answers to some of the most common questions asked by our customers.
How Do We Clean Our Stone Surfaces?
For day-to-day cleaning, we recommend wiping away dust and debris from stone surfaces using a soft cloth or dry dust mop. For basic wet cleaning, you can use a mild dish soap and water solution or a pH-neutral cleanser. Use only a small amount of dish soap in the mixture to avoid streaking. You can also use cleaners specifically formulated for your type of stone surface provided you follow the directions carefully. Be sure to read the label to make sure the product is compatible with the type of stone you have– otherwise, you could cause damage.
What Kind of Products will Harm Your Stone?
You should avoid using anything acidic on your stone surfaces, or any cleaner containing chlorine, as these can react with the stone and ruin the finish and damage the stone. (Even mild acidic agents like vinegar or lemon juice can cause damage.) If you use detergents or cleaners, make sure they are pH-neutral. Also, avoid harsh, gritty cleaners and abrasive scrub pads, as these can cause scratches and etch into the finish. If you’re uncertain about a specific product, it’s always best to err on the side of caution. Contact us with any questions you have about stone care products.
How Often Should Stone Surfaces be Cleaned?
It depends on the amount of use the surface receives. Generally speaking, you should wipe down your stone surfaces at least once a week with a pH-neutral cleaner. For high-traffic areas, you may need to clean more frequently and feel free to use a dust mop on active floors as often as needed.
What are the Best Products to Clean Certain Stone Surfaces?
For most stone surfaces like marble, granite, or limestone, you can’t go wrong with a light mix of dish soap and water for regular cleaning. You may find other products formulated for specific types of stone, but make certain you use these ONLY for the type of stone you have, and ONLY as directed. When in doubt, contact us for suggestions on specific cleaners.
