Seal Limestone Floor Tiles

Updated:2013-08-27 16:47:55
Limestone floor tiles are a durable type of natural stone flooring. Limestone is a porous material and needs to be sealed in order to prevent any stains or moisture from penetrating and damaging this beautiful stone. An specialized sealer made specifically for limestone must be used in the sealing process. The sealer should be applied when the limestone is installed and every two years after that to maintain the beauty of the stone. You will know when your limestone tiles require resealing by the way any water sits on the stone. Water on a protective seal will bead. If water no longer beads on the surface, the limestone needs to be resealed.
Step 1 – Safety
Be sure to put on protective eye wear, gloves and dust mask before you begin to seal your limestone tiles. The sealant will produce strong fumes. Be sure the room is well ventilated. Open all of the windows to allow the air to circulate better.
Step 2 – Cleaning the Limestone Tiles
Use your vacuum to remove any dirt or debris from the limestone tiles. Use an alkaline stone cleaner to wash the tiles. Read the directions provided by the manufacturer of the cleaner before you begin. This type of cleaner will remove any grease or stains from the flooring. Be sure that you do not use an acid based cleaner on your limestone floor as this will damage the tiles. Wipe any excess moisture from the tiles once they have been cleaned. Allow the limestone tiles to dry for about two days.
Step 3 – Using the Correct Sealer
Visit your local hardware or home improvement store and speak to a professional about your plans about sealing your limestone floor. The sealer you purchase should be a penetrating solution designed specifically for limestone tiles. Soft limestone tiles are best protected with a penetrating sealer that contains silicone. Be sure to read the instructions provided by the manufacturer of the sealer before you begin to use it.
