Stone Maintenance Don’t’s

Last month we told you the things you should be doing to keep your stone surfaces looking your best, so this month we’re highlighting the thing to NOT do. Stone tends to be a pricier, yet more lasting element than its counterparts, so why not guarantee you have many, many years to enjoy it?Don’t worry, this is a pretty short list thanks to stone’s durable nature.

1.Don’t use vinegar, lemon juice, or other acidic cleaners on marble, limestone, travertine, or onyx surfaces. This includes bathroom cleaners, grout cleaners, or tub and tile solutions.

2.Don’t use vacuums that have metal attachments that could scrape the stone. Light vacuuming, or even just sweeping and mopping will ensure clean floors.

3.Don’t mix chemicals unless the directions advise you to do so. This goes along with the acidic note, but you want to ensure a mixture will not harm your stone surfaces.

That’s it! As long as your stone is cared for, you will have many years to enjoy it!
