How Often Do Stone Surfaces Need Maintenance?

Common maintenance schedules

The frequency with which you need maintenance varies based on the type of stone you have and where it’s located. For example, indoor and outdoor stone need maintenance at different intervals, stone that’s in high-traffic areas would need maintenance more often than stone in lower-traffic areas, and sealing stone can ensure it needs maintenance less frequently.

To make sure you’re getting maintenance at the right times, just reach out to Fuller Stone Care. We’ll talk with you about your needs an come up with a maintenance plan that works specifically for you.

The three most common maintenance tasks

The maintenance tasks we’ll complete on your stone will vary based on your needs. We’ll assess your situation, your stone, and what your concerns are, and will then recommend a maintenance schedule and plan that works for you. The three most common tasks we typically include in maintenance include cleaning, polishing, and sealing.

When we clean your stone, we’ll wipe up spills, grit, and drips to ensure they don’t stain. Our favorite product is Natural Stone Cleaner and Conditioner, though we’ll offer other products as needed. We can also steam clean your stone and get rid – and prevent – algae, mold, and mildew.

If you have stone that’s polished or honed, then over time it’s likely that you’ll notice scratches and / or dull spots. The good news is that though this can look unsightly at first, Fuller Stone Care can grind and polish your stones to get them back to a like-new finish. We use the latest innovations, which include nano abrasive and diamond compounds. Our process is totally dustless, which means you get the results you want without the mess.

Finally, for those customers with porous stones, we may recommend sealing. This is typically needed for things like marble, travertine, and natural stones. You may also need resealing to keep it in great shape. Regardless of your needs, you can count on Fuller Stone Care to take care of them.
