Cleaning & Sealing Natural Stone: Limestone, Travertine, Marble

Considerations for cleaning stone *

  1. Regular, basic maintenance type cleaning
    1. Use any non-caustic degreasing agent (mild dish or hand soap) mixed in warm water.
  2. Deep cleaning, minor restoration (mild etch) type cleaning
    1. Dilute muriatic acid 10 parts water to 1-part store-bought muriatic acid
    1. Wet entire stone surface
    1. Pour dilute mix and move it around with a sponge mop – consider doing in 20 square foot over lapping sections.  Don’t let it sit in one place without moving and agitating it.  Acid will neutralize after 10-15 seconds.
    1. Finish with a rinsing the surface with clean water

Sealing the stone **

  1. Before proceeding with sealing, if you applied new grout, you need to wait at least 2 weeks for the outgassing of the grout to complete. 
  2. If you only did stone cleaning, seal after the stone is thoroughly dry, typically a day or two. 

 * This does not apply to high polished marble – contact us for those details.

** We highly recommend purchasing sealer products from a tile showroom.  We recommend Stain Proof from Dry Treat .
