Cleaning Stains on Natural Stone Tile

stone1Natural Stone occasionally needs more than routine cleaning maintenance.  The location of the stone surface- such as a shower, kitchen or high traffic area- and the type of surface- for example Travertine, Porcelain or Granite- are factors that contribute to the frequency with stone is likely to need extra attention to maintain it’s natural beauty.  For instance, stone floor or walls in a shower will be more susceptible to soap scum and hard water deposits than a stone foyer floor that sees minimal foot traffic.

    Question: We have two large natural slate entryways that get heavy use and are filthy despite scrubbing with brush and Simple Green cleaner. I have also tried muriatic acid with no noticeable difference. We love the look of slate but not the look of this disaster. These floors were sealed when installed and I think we need to start all over. Will Nano Scrub be a good next step?

      Hello Caroline

      Nanoscrub is a good next step but depending how heavily soiled the area is I would suggest using the Stone Deep Clean along with the NanoScrub and then reseal the floor using Aqua Mix Sealer’s Choice.
