NATURAL STONE SURFACES
Natural stone surfaces are beautiful and can provide years of use, provided they are properly maintained. Whether it's hard stones such as granites and quartz, commonly used on kitchen countertops, or soft stones such as marble, travertine, or other limestones, commonly used on entryways, bathroom counters and floors, and shower walls, each stone requires a specific approach to maintaining a uniform finished surface. Hard stones tend to need less maintenance and can oftentimes be brought back to original sheen by timely maintenance with specialty cleaners and polishes. Soft stones, on the other hand, tend to become dull with wear and can even become damaged by acidity found commonly in food/drinks or even over the counter cleaning products that are not specifically designed for natural stone use. Acids (citrus, wines, vinegars, cleaners) attack the calcium layers in soft stone which removes the polish from the area of the stone that it has come into contact with. Simply cleaning the surface of the stone will not bring back the original sheen.
