Understanding Your Stone

The first step in maintaining your natural stone is understanding its characteristics and requirements. Different types of stone—such as marble, granite, limestone, and travertine—have different porosities, densities, and compositions, which influence how they should be cared for. For instance, marble is more prone to etching and staining than granite due to its softer and more porous nature. Fuller Stone Care offers tailored maintenance plans that consider these differences, ensuring that each stone surface receives the appropriate care.

Regular Cleaning with the Right Products

Regular cleaning is vital to prevent dirt and grit from scratching the stone surface. However, using the wrong cleaning products can do more harm than good. Acidic or abrasive cleaners can etch the surface of softer stones like marble and limestone. Fuller Stone Care uses pH-neutral cleaners specifically formulated for natural stone, ensuring effective cleaning without damaging the stone’s integrity. Our professionals are trained to identify the most suitable products and techniques for each type of stone, guaranteeing that your surfaces remain immaculate.

Sealing for Protection

Sealing is a crucial step in protecting natural stone surfaces from stains and damage. Most natural stones are porous to some degree and can absorb spills, leading to staining and etching. Fuller Stone Care provides professional sealing services that create a protective barrier on the stone’s surface, significantly reducing its porosity and helping prevent damage from spills and stains. Depending on the stone type and the area’s usage, we recommend sealing at intervals that ensure ongoing protection without over-application.

Addressing Spills and Stains Promptly

Even with regular cleaning and sealing, spills can still occur, and immediate action is crucial to prevent staining. We advise blotting up spills promptly rather than wiping them, which can spread the spill. For tough stains, Fuller Stone Care offers specialized stain removal services that safely and effectively restore the stone’s appearance. Our experts have the knowledge and tools to tackle various stains, from oil-based to organic, without damaging the stone.

Professional Maintenance and Restoration

While regular at-home care is important, certain aspects of natural stone maintenance demand professional attention. Over time, natural stone can lose its shine, become scratched, or suffer from chips and cracks. Fuller Stone Care‘s restoration services can revive the beauty of your stone, addressing everything from minor blemishes to significant damage. Our restoration process includes grinding, honing, polishing, and sealing, restoring the stone to its original splendor or even improving upon it.

Customized Care Plans

Understanding that every natural stone surface is unique, Fuller Stone Care offers customized care plans designed to meet the specific needs of your stone. Whether it’s high-traffic flooring in a commercial setting or a marble countertop in a private residence, we assess the condition, usage, and type of stone to recommend a maintenance schedule that ensures its beauty and durability over time.
