  1. Cleaning
  2. The first step of maintenance is always cleaning. The good news is that natural stone is generally very low maintenance when it comes to getting clean. Of course, you will need to wipe up anything that you notice on the surface, such as any liquid or grit. This prevents staining, scratching, or etching. If there are more serious cleaning needs for your natural stone, you should contact Fuller Stone Care to learn what to do.

    We might be able to provide instructions on how you can clean your specific stone. We might also recommend professional cleaning, depending on how significant the problem is.

  3. Polishing
  4. Once the stone is clean, polishing is likely the next step – that is assuming that the stone has either a honed or polished finish. With these stones, as time goes on they can attract scratches and dull spots. The good news is that with grinding and polishing maintenance, we can return your stone to a like-new appearance. We use only the latest technology, which includes diamond and nano abrasive compounds. We have developed a dustless process that gets you the results you want without the mess other methods can create.

  5. Sealing
  6. The purpose of sealing natural stone is to make sure that it is protected against stains and moisture penetration. Keep in mind that it must be periodically resealed to make sure that it is in top shape. The good news is that we use sealants that do not leave any residue behind, which means we can apply another layer of sealant on top of the current layer. This is not true of other companies, who must begin by stripping off the previous layer of sealant they used.

Yearly Maintenance is Best for Most Homeowners

The final question we often get from homeowners is this: how often do I need to do maintenance on my natural stone surface? The short answer is that for most homes, once a year is fine. However, if your stone is in a high-traffic area, is particularly old, or is otherwise more fragile than average, then you might need maintenance more often.
