The Pros and Cons of Stone Cleaning

By hights1 On July 8, 2017 Under Stone Cleaning

Stone Cleaning

Stone flooring is exceptionally beautiful and extremely durable too. Given that it is also a large investment for any household or business, it requires proper care. Undoubtedly, stone cleaning is essential, but are you sure that you are doing it right? Find out how it should be done and what cleaning methods and agents should be avoided at all costs.

Key Benefits to Consider

stone cleaningStone cleaning is required often. Since stone is porous, a liquid can get absorbed quite quickly. While high-quality sealant will slow down the process immensely, you should be quick to act and wipe the floor with soft white kitchen paper towel. Since dirt particles can scratch the surface, frequent cleaning with a dust mop is equally important. It makes sense to use professional deep surface cleaning at least once a year or more often if required. They could be useful after major home renovation projects too. Let’s see the main benefits that you will get with them.

 

Dirt removal

Stain removal

Perfect safety

Effective future protection

Major Mistakes to Avoid

When stone cleaning is not done correctly, it could go terribly wrong. Often, it is homeowners opting for the wrong kinds of materials and/or tools who cause damage. Let’s take a look at what you should stay away from:

Applying acidic solutions - While white vinegar and lemon juice are commonly recommended as “universal” home cleaning agents, they could cause damage to stone because of their acidic nature. Avoid the use of commercial products containing acidic compounds also.

Using tools that can scratch the floor - Don’t vacuum your stone floor with a vacuum cleaner whose wheels and/or attachments are worn as they can easily scratch the surface. You can use a soft dry mop for sweeping the floor clean instead.

Now you have a clear idea of the wrong way and the right way to clean stone floors. When it comes to professional stone cleaning, you can rely on Highfield TS to do an excellent job.

    Having received either no response or a very unhelpful response from a few other firms, I contacted Paul during the New Year to carry out some urgent carpet cleaning I required. He responded instantly in a very positive manner and offered to carry out the work on a bank holiday. Paul proceeded to carry out a speedy, professional and truly amazing job - the floors were unrecognisable afterwards - and I cannot recommend his friendly 'can do' attitude highly enough.

    Paul did a great job steam cleaning all the stone floors in our holiday cottages and then put a sealer on top.

    This is the second time we have used the carpet cleaning service of Paul, and again he turned up exactly on time and carried out the cleaning with the expected professionalism required. Our carpets are now like new and at such reasonable rates too. We will happily continue to not only use Paul but recommend him to others too.
