- WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO MAINTAIN MY NATURAL STONE FLOORS AFTER DEEP CLEANING?The best way to keep stone floors looking their best is by regularly dust mopping the entrances and exiting areas of the floor. Preferably with a non-treated rayon mop head, ensuring the removal of all loose dirt, sand and minor debris. When vacuuming, disengage your brush roll and when damp mopping use a neutral pH floor cleaner.WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN POLISHING AND HONING?Polishing adds a high reflective gloss to your stone floors. Honing is a more aggressive/restorative procedure typically performed to reduce the visibility of any unwanted imperfections within the stone surface.HOW LONG CAN I WAIT BEFORE I NEED TO RE-COAT MY STONE FLOOR?Travertine or Terrazzo floors are better suited to adding a coating or finish, however, this is not a recommended way to add shine to stone floors such as granite or marble. Natural stone needs to breathe, and adding coatings or finishes blocks the floor from breathing. With that being said, the frequency of service needed to maintain the sheen on stone floors will vary drastically generally depending on the type of stone, location of the floor, soil type, and traffic intensity.
