Natural Stone Care & Maintenance.
Limestone and Onyx like any other natural stones are sedimentary rocks composed mainly of minerals calcite and aragonite and by organic remains such as shells and coral. Natural stone requires a proper maintenance because they are porous by nature and in order to protect its beauty from chemical products and nature, you must follow a different maintenance routine than traditional ceramic tile products. Many of the cleaners acceptable for use on ceramic tile can stain, damage or dull stone. Dirt and dust will scratch the surface of stone.
Natural stone floors should be vacuumed or dust mopped frequently to remove abrasive agents from the stone surface. Natural stone should be cleaned with neutral cleaners. Stone cleaners should never contain acid or bleach. Acids, even a light solution of vinegar and water, will etch and eventually damage natural stone.
Only use cleaners specifically designed for cleaning stone. These cleaners contain no acids and are concentrated neutral ph cleaners that will not affect existing sealers or wax-type coatings. The surface of the stone should be dampened with clear water. This will keep the cleaning solution on the surface so it can be effective. Use a sponge or mop with the cleaner. On wall, kitchen counters or vanity tops, a spray bottle can be used to apply the cleaning solution. Allow sitting for manufacturers specified amount of time (usually 3 to 5 minutes). Agitate with a sponge, synthetic mop, soft bristle brush or through the use of a floor-scrubbing machine. Mop up dirty solution and buff dry.
Once the stone has been cleaned, you can periodically apply a spray-Buff wax-type floor finish to enhance the beauty and luster of polished stone (including countertops). Apply the finish with a spray applicator and buff immediately with a white nylon pad. Reapply as often as needed, depending on volume of surface traffic. and consistency of routine maintenance program.

Heavy-Duty Stone Cleaning
Used for neglected areas. This degreaser effectvely remove dirt, grease, grime, waxes and floor finishes. This product can be used with a floor-scrubbing machine. Mop up dirty solution and buff dry. Be sure to change out the cleaning solution every 100 square feet to avoid reintroducing dirty water during the cleaning process. Rinse thoroughly with clean water when finished. After cleaning you may apply the Spray=Buff wax-type floor finish to enhance the natural shine.

Stain Removal
Stone poultice will remove stains and grout haze from stone. Poultice is a fine, nonacidic, absorptive clay cleaning powder that removes deep-set oil stains, grease and light cementitious grout haze from polished and unpolished natural stones.Caution. Poultice may dull the shine of the polished stone. If this occurs you will need to use a marble polish to restore the natural shine.

Restoration
If a marble finish has become dull, scratched or etched, you can restore the natural shine through the use of a marble polish. The process is generally a re-crystallization process to remove fine scratches and restore the original shine and polish to the stone.

Natural Stone. New Installations.
A non-sanded grout is strongly recommended for natural stone installations due to the narrow grout joits customarily preferred. All travertine, slate, tumbled stone and honed/flamed/ unpolished granite should be sealed prior to the grouting process to protect them form staining. The application of a good quality sealer should be used as a grout sealer and applied again as the final sealing process once the installation is finished.

Types of Sealers
A premium natural look penetrating/impregnating sealer is the normal choice on polished or honed marble, limestone, granite, or where the natural color of a slate is desired. A stone enhancer sealer is often used on tumbled, antique stones or on slate where a darker, enriched or highlighted character is desired.
Penetrating/impregnating stone sealers is a no-sheen, natural look sealer that can be water-based or solvent-based, good for interior and exterior applications. Most quality sealers of this type are rated to protect the stone a minimum of 10 years.
Stone enhancer sealers are also a no-sheen, penetrating/impregnating sealer that are formulated to darken, enrich and highlight the natural color and beauty of tumbled, antique or slate products. They will rejuvenate and improve the appearance of worn and weathered stone. Always test loose pieces of stone to ensure desired effect with enhancing sealers. However, they will also darken the color of grout joints. They are, generally, suitable for interior and exterior use, and rated to protect the stone a minimum of 3 years.
