How to Clean Stone Flooring

When properly sealed, stone floors can be relatively easy to maintain. You can also minimize stone floor damage by taking preventative measures such as placing mats in doorways, putting floor protectors on furniture legs and caulking the floor in water susceptible areas (e.g. bathroom). Sealing stone floors periodically can also help minimize floor damage.

Stone floors should never be cleaned with abrasive or ammonia-based cleaning products, tile cleaners or scouring pads as these things can cause permanent damage. Although most stone floor types may seem very durable, they can be prone to damage when exposed to spills or standing water. Stone floors should be damp mopped with a clean mop and a manufacturer-recommended cleaning solution. Rinse and ring out the mop frequently so as to avoid leaving behind a soapy residue on your stone floors.

Other stone floor cleaning tips:

  • Never clean stone floors with cleaning solutions that contain acidic substances such as lemon juice and/or vinegar.
  • Clean up spills immediately.
  • Treat hard-to-remove stains with a neutral pH detergent.
  • Routinely sweep stone floors.
  • Have stone floors sealed according to the manufacturer's recommendation.

If one used Limestone Flooring then what is the best way to clean it so that the chemicals don't spoil the texture and the look.

Thank you for your question about cleaning limestone. The product that we recommend is called StoneSpecific by Custom Building Products. It is available at the Home Depot. It works great for unpolished stone. It seals while it cleans.

Often the first step to keeping your floor clean is the application of a good sealer. To this end you may wish to check if your stone floor has already had a sealer applied, and applied correctly. To do this you can pour a couple of drops of water onto the surface and observe - if it forms into small balls and 'floats' on the surface then your floor has been correctly sealed, if it is absorbed in any way - then your floor is in need of a sealer.
