Limestone Cleaning, Polishing, and Sealing

Most limestone floors are a light color. They are very pourous, which makes them very prone to soaking up dirt. We can clean and seal them so they stay looking new for years to come. Limestone cleaning, polishing, and sealing is the best way to maintain your quality tile.

Limestone is composed of mostly the mineral calcite and takes up about 15% of the earths sedimentary crust and 71% of all crushed stone is limestone. It is a very porous stone and when used in constructing a homes interior or exterior it needs to be cleaned and sealed properly.

Limestone Care

Keeping up with your limestone flooring needs is not difficult. You must first start with a fully protected tile. This could mean getting your limestone cleaned, polished, grinded and sealed. By evaluating your floors condition you can determine which steps are necessary. Most of the time only a few of the steps are necessary to get your limestone floor to perform with beauty and durability for years to come.

Cleaning and sealing your limestone floor is very important in helping repel as much dirt and as many stains as possible. After your floor is ready for use, following these easy steps can keep them looking and performing well for years.

  • 1. Keep dirt and dust to a minimum. Sweep and mop regularly. (Only mop with a PH Neutral Cleaner…We recommend Hillyard Top Cleaner)
  • 2. Clean up all spills and drops immediately. These can stain and etch your stone, even if your stone has been sealed.
  • 3. No mopping with Fabuloso, Mop N Glo, Pinesol, Mr. Clean, Swiftor Wet N Jet and the list goes on and on. Just PH NEUTRAL balanced cleaner to protect the integrity of your floors.
  • 4. When entertaining or have work in order (parties, dog sitting, construction or remodeling) sweep and mop before the event so that dirt and debris doesn't get pushed down into the surface of the floor and scratch the finish.
  • 5. Vacuuming can be done with a bare floor setting and can keep your floors free of dust and debris. Be careful to vacuum slowly and without aggression as to prevent unnecessary scratching from the vacuum. The carpet brush is never to be used as it can compromise your seal and finish, leaving a dull and unprotected limestone floor.
