Cleaning natural stone is simple. A washcloth with mild dish soap and warm water is all that you need. Avoid using cleaners with bleach, ammonia or alcohol, they tend to be acidic. If streaking occurs, try using a dry cloth. Stone Fabricators offers neutral cleaners in concentrate and premixed solutions for cleaning your stone countertops.
Sealing natural stone is a simple process that prevents staining and maintains stone’s beauty. A sealer penetrates the surface to protect against moisture, dirt and stains. Before sealing, a thorough cleaning is recommended to avoid sealing dirt into the stone.
A good rule of thumb is to seal once per year, however, you can perform a simple test. Sprinkle a few drops of water on the surface and if it beads up, the sealer is still intact. Stone Fabricators applies a factory seal to the countertops you purchase, however, some natural stone requires multiple applications. Honed materials, light colored materials, sandstone, limestone and travertine are examples of materials that need additional applications. Contact Stone Fabricators for the sealer that is right for your countertops.
