What we do for natural stone maintenance?

Updated:2017-01-08 21:39:35

Nowadays, as the household decoration requirements are getting higher, the natural stone has been widely used as the adornment for windowsill, floor, walls, steps, bathroom countertop, vanitytop and so on, granite is basically used for kitchen countertops, tiles cut to size, pavers, steps and marble is applied for windowsill, high end and residential. Now that the natural stone plays an important role in decoration, so how to maintain it?

 

The following are some tips for it.

 

All stones are sensitive to acid and alkali. Contacting with acid and alkali, the granite will turn yellow and the marble surface will be corroded. Meanwhile, the alkali also flakes off the crystal of the granite, thus making the stone lose luster on the surface. Therefore, we should use the neutral PH cleaning agent to clean the stone, hence we can simply use mild soap and water for the daily cleaning of the granite. Long-term coverage of carpets and debris on the surface of stone is not allowed and we should maintain the stone surface breathable enough, otherwise the stone quality will be reduced thanks to the heavy moisture and the increased water content. If the carpets and debris are placed on the stone, we better move them now and again.

 

We also need to keep the environment ventilated and dry, because the high ambient humidity will cause hydration, hydrolysis and carbonation of the stone, thereby resulting in water spots, albefaction, weathering, denudation, rust and others. We should try to avoid the direct and frequent friction between the shoe nails and the floor, and better put on slipper after entering the room to reduce the possibility of sand and dust wearing the stone surface.

 

Once the source of pollution (Oil, tea, coffee, cola, soy sauce, ink and so on) is on the stone, we should clean it immediately to prevent the source of pollution infiltrating into stone pores. As all stones has natural pores, if the dirt is not timely treated, it’s very likely to penetrate into the interior of stone along the pores, forming nasty stains.

 

We must regularly make professional maintenance and luster regeneration with some waterproofing agent that has quality assurance. Do not wax casually, because there are many wax varieties in the market, such as water-borne wax, stearic acid wax, oily wax, acrylic wax etc., and all these waxs basically contain acid and alkali substances, which will clog the pores, and also form wax scale after being stained with dirt, resulting in stone surface turning yellow; Besides, the wax contains ammonia, volatilization and decomposition substances of which will do harm to the human body and the environment. Currently, crystal surface treatment is the best choice for stone maintenance.
