There are several reasons why your floors should be properly maintained
MAINTAINING THE FINISH - Regardless of the finish type, the main reason we maintain a stone product is to preserve and keep the desired finish. If the desired finish proves to be difficult it may be time to implement a maintenance program, re-think your existing program or opt for restoration.
KEEPING IT CLEAN -The second reason we maintain a stone product is to keep it clean. We should not confuse shine with cleanliness. Just because a floor has a high polish does not mean that it is clean. Mopping should be performed with the right cleaners to pick up the dirt and protect the floor materials intrinsic properties.
The biggest mistake we see with wet mopping is not changing the cleaner. The cleaner must be changed often. This little tip can prevent streaking, sticky floors and the shine will last longer. Also, separate mops should be used to clean the stone floors from those used to clean other surfaces. By following these simple rules your stone floors will maintain their beauty and durability for years to come.
SAFETY - Safety should be at the top of the list when it comes to reasons to properly maintain your floors. We emphasize how important slip-resistance is to a stone floor. Stone flooring is one of the most slippery surfaces available.
Dirt, soiling, dirty mop water and old waxes all contribute the reduction of a stone floors slip-resistance. With proper maintenance you will ensure that your floors remain slip-resistant and safe.
