Why is my natural stone floor getting more stains?

Before Marble Floor After cleaning and seal

Have you had natural stone floors installed in the past three years? Is it evident it’s getting tougher to get stains out? Here are some reasons why this might be occurring.

  • Dullness and discoloration from built-up residue and soap scum
  • Endured some etching, scratches, chips and seam repairs
  • The surface was polished
  • Someone cleaned the floor with an acidic cleaner

If you have limestone, travertine, onyx, marble and serpentine, then it is susceptible to acid. Find a pH-balanced, non-acidic gentle soap to clean your counter tops.

 However, granite, slate, quartzite, soapstone, and sandstone are not as sensitive to acidic cleaners.

The best way to prevent staining on your floors, is to have a protective seal on them. It might be well overdue for one. You could have the new look of your floors like did before!
