Natural stone floors are a beautiful addition to any home, and they are surprisingly easy to maintain.
Abrasive materials like sand and dirt can damage natural stone floors. It is a good idea to keep walk-off mats or area rugs near entrances from the outside to help collect dirt before it reaches your floor. For this reason, it is very important to vacuum your floor if it is textured. Avoid letting the vacuum’s bristles touch the stone as you clean the floor’s cracks. A dust mop, broom, or wet mop will also work well.
Damp mopping a natural stone floor will keep it looking beautiful. If you spill on your natural floor, make sure to clean it up immediately. To be safe, use a gentle soap cleaner, one free of abrasive chemicals. Liquid ivory or castle soap work quite well on natural floors. Too much cleaner and soap may leave a residue or film on your floor and cause streaks, making it very important to rinse the floor well.
