We’re often asked how best to continue to care for a stone floor after we have visit to provide our cleaning or polishing services.

In the next few months we will be launching our very own Athena Aftercare guide with information on everything from how to keep your floor clean, to what to do when you notice a scratch or mark.

But in the meantime, here’s the information that we share with all of our clients:

Maintenance cleaning: Beware of consistent wet mopping and steam cleaning as this will damage a stone floor. As well as spreading dirt around, over wetting reduces the lifespan of sealants and impregnators that protect your floor. Instead, we recommend that you invest in a low moisture mop system such as a Kentucky mop and Ladybug bucket.

Vacuuming: Frequent vacuuming with a soft brush attachment will actually reduce the amount of scratching to your stone floor. Sand and dirt from shoes is the biggest cause of dulling on polished stone. So asking guests to remove footwear is another great way to preserve your natural stone.

Furniture: Most people use coasters for the feet of chairs and furniture sitting on stone floors. This is a very sensible way to save scratches and scuffs, but shouldn’t be limited to the lounge and dining room. Bathroom accessories can account for lots of stains and problems. Metal toilet brush holders especially can cause irreversible rust stains on marble and limestone.
