To keep your natural stone floors stain free and shining, you should regularly clean them and take proper care. Wondering how to clean your natural stone floors? Whether you have quartzite, super white dolomite, marble or granite floors, follow the below given expert tips to keep your floors looking like new all year round.
Best Tips & Practices:
Use A Neutral Cleaner:
When it comes to cleaning a stone floor, you should use a cleaner that is not too acidic or alkaline. Both the type of cleaners will affect the finish and glossy look of the floor, so it is always better to use a neutral cleaner.
Use Mats And Rugs:
If you have got the softest stones such as marbles, you should make some effort to maintain your floors. Place some mats and area rugs on the floor so that the dirt will get trapped on them instead of being left behind on the floor. Also, sweep high-traffic areas every day to keep your floors from scratching.
Mop The Floor:
Mopping your floor can be done in two ways. The first way is to sprinkle the cleaner on your floor and wipe it off with a dry microfiber mop. Another method is to dip your microfiber mop pad in a bucket of water and cleaner, squeeze it well and wipe the floor. Either way, you should only use microfiber mop pad as it is less abrasive.
Clean Gaps and Crevices:
Most stone flooring will have gaps and crevices where dirt will get accumulated. If left unattended, no mopping will get the debris out of it. The best way to get the embedded dirt out of these gaps and crevices is to clean it with some sort of soft brush.
