Use a soft cloth or sponge when cleaning: Avoid using abrasive sponges or scouring pads, as they can scratch the surface of the stone. Instead, use a soft cloth or sponge to gently clean the stone.
Use a pH-neutral cleaner: Avoid using cleaners that are too acidic or too alkaline, as they can damage the stone. Instead, use a pH-neutral cleaner specifically designed for natural stone.
Avoid using bleach or other harsh chemicals: Bleach and other harsh chemicals can damage the surface of natural stone. Instead, use a mild detergent solution to clean the stone.
Use coasters and trivets: To protect your natural stone surfaces from heat damage, use coasters or trivets when placing hot items on the stone.
Seal the stone regularly: Depending on the type of natural stone and the level of use, it may be necessary to seal the stone every 6-12 months to protect it from staining. Use a sealer specifically designed for natural stone.
Avoid using harsh, abrasive cleaners: Avoid using abrasive cleaners or scouring pads, as they can scratch the surface of the stone. Instead, use a mild detergent solution or a cleaner specifically designed for natural stone.
