Cleaning & Maintenance
Sandstone and Limestone Floor Surfaces
Sandstone tiles and pavers are porous and vary greatly in porosity depending on the type of sandstone. This means large amounts of water can be absorbed into the sandstone resulting in staining of the stone. We recommend sealing sandstone with a Stain-Guarding treatment.
Sandstone tiles and pavers should be cleaned regularly following these 4 simply steps;
- Vacuum – or wipe to remove any loose grit fron the sandstone.
- Damp clean – clean using a microfibre cloth or mop which has been dampened in warm water (no chemicals is required).
- Spot Clean (if necessary) – use pH neutral cleaning chemical to remove spots or stained area. Be sure to rinse the area with water.
- After cleaning sandstone with water, dry the sandstone using a towel. Do not leave to air dry.
