Essential maintenance tasks
There are a few different tasks that should be completed. First up is cleaning. Depending on the type of stone you have, it may be very low maintenance and require nothing more than wiping up spills and getting rid of dirt and grime. Other types of stone do require more regular cleaning and should be cleaned by professionals. Give Fuller Stone Care a call and we’ll give you specific instructions based on the type of stone you have. We can also help if you need assistance getting rid of mold, or algae.
If you have the type of stone with a finish that’s polished or honed, then you’ll likely get scratches or dull spots over time. The good news is that we offer a grinding / polishing process that can create a finish that looks brand new. We’ll use the most advanced equipment with our dustless process that gives you the results you want without all the mess.
Sealing is also an important part of your maintenance. If the stone you’re working with is natural, then it will need to be resealed every few years to ensure it doesn’t get stained or absorb moisture. We can recommend the right products for you and your particular stone.
A maintenance schedule
The type of stone you have will dictate how often it needs maintenance. For example, some stone need maintenance once a year while others can go a few years. It will also depend on whether or not the stone is in or outdoors, and how much it’s used. Of course, the best way to find out is to contact Fuller Stone Care for a free quote.
