Below you will find the answers to the most common questions asked of the Matter of Stone team.
What products should I use to clean the stone and where can I get them?
For best results, we can supply various cleaning products to match the sealer used on your stone. We recommend & sell Lithofin & Dry Treat products for daily use. Alternatively, hot water with a touch of Methylated Spirits can be used. Avoid common domestic floor cleaners such as Ajax as they can damage the stone.
How often should I have my stone resealed and polished?
Depending on foot traffic or acidic attack your floors should professionally cleaned and resealed at least every 5-10 years.
How will I know when the stone needs to be resealed, polished or honed?
When the stone loses its shine and colour we recommend having it professionally cleaned and resealed. This will give it new life, bringing it back to it’s original glory.
