One day you are looking at luxurious flooring with a high class shine throughout, next you have a dull, lacklustre floor with haze, scratches and grime built up on your flooring.

#To ensure the long-lasting beauty of your marble, travertine and natural stone flooring, we’ve compiled a list of essential tips and techniques for proper stone floor care.

Regular Cleaning Routines

Maintaining the cleanliness of your stone floors is key to preserving their beauty. Follow these tips for regular cleaning:

1. Sweep or Vacuum Regularly

Remove loose dirt and debris from your stone floors by sweeping or using a soft-bristle vacuum attachment. This prevents scratches and abrasive particles from damaging the surface.

2. Use pH-neutral Cleaners

When it’s time for a deeper clean, choose pH-neutral cleaners specifically formulated for stone floors. Avoid acidic or abrasive cleaners that can etch or scratch the surface.

3. Blot Spills Immediately

Accidents happen, but it’s important to blot spills on your stone floors immediately to prevent staining. Use a clean cloth or paper towel to absorb the liquid without rubbing it into the stone.

Periodic Maintenance

In addition to regular cleaning, periodic maintenance is necessary to keep your stone floors in optimal condition. Consider the following:

1. Sealing

Applying a high-quality stone sealer can help protect your floors from stains and moisture penetration. Consult with a professional to determine the appropriate sealer for your specific type of stone.

2. Polishing

Over time, stone floors may lose their shine and develop dull areas. Professional polishing can restore the natural luster and beauty of your stone surfaces.

3. Professional Cleaning

Engaging the services of a professional stone floor cleaning company, such as Alba Floor Care, ensures a thorough and effective cleaning process. Professional cleaners have the knowledge, experience, and equipment to tackle tough stains and deep-seated dirt.

By following these stone floor care tips and investing in professional maintenance, you can enjoy the long-lasting beauty of your stone floors for years to come.
