How to Take Care of Natural Stone Floors in Paradise Valley Arizona

Natural Stone creates a very beautiful appearance in any home or business in Paradise Valley, Arizona. Natural stone is a formation of rock that has gone through an intricate process. For example, Travertine is a sedimentary rock deposited by mineral springs and Marble is a metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals. Granite is an igneous rock composed of four minerals. These four minerals can create a very dense floor. Once processed, Natural Stone flooring installed in Paradise Valley, Arizona comes in many configurations such as dull honed, stain finish, polished, and flamed based on customers’ preference and desires.The softer stones such as Travertine, Limestone, Flagstone, Sandstone and Marble are less forgiving with regard to cleaning and maintenance than the harder Slate, Quartzsite and Granite flooring. Having a good understating is key to the success of any cleaning process. For this reason, we want to provide you with some cleaning guidelines to help you with your cleaning and maintenance program. 

Here are three things you can do today to take care of your Natural Stone Floors in Paradise Valley Arizona.

1. Nature stone should be regularly vacuumed to reduce the incident of abrasives damaging your stone floors.

2. Use only high quality stone specific cleaning solutions on your stone floors. We recommend that you use Zep neutral floor cleaner. When floors are great shape the neutral cleaner will help clean without leaving a sticky residue on your grout and tiles. 

3. Avoid using acid based cleaners on your Travertine, Marble, Limestone, Terrazzo, and Conglomerate (natural stone) tiles.
