Janitorial cleaning and maintenance of stone floors requires a range of floor cleaning equipment and the use of proprietary cleaning chemicals are specifically formulated for use on hard or stone flooring.

The Importance Of Your Stone Floor Finish

Almost all stone flooring products are intrinsically porous, and Stone Floor Cleaning Requirements vary with the degree of porosity and the stone's surface state and texture. Sealed floors are very much easier to maintain than unsealed floors, and some colors and patterns show dirt and marks more easily than others.

For Easy Care & Maintenance Stone Floors Must Be Properly Sealed & Finished!

SEALING Porous Stone Floors
Apply undiluted Diversey Plaza Plus Stone Floor Sealer onto new or stripped stone floors using a mop. When used as a sealant, Plaza Plus can be top coated with other Diversey floor finish products. When used alone as a combination sealant/finish this product can be maintained with conventional or UHS floor machines.

FINISHING Sealed Stone Floors
Solvent-based waxes are durable but may discolor some porous man-made stone flooring products - so test in an inconspicuous place before applying to the entire floor. Water-based waxes tend to build up and require stripping, but are less likely to discolor your floor. There are many products specifically formulated for use on porous stone and tile floors.

To select the optimum products for cleaning and maintaining your sealed stone floor you need to factor in your type of floor machine:

For Daily Cleaning/Polishing with Conventional Rotary Floor Machines 3M offers the ScotchBrite Purple Diamond Floor Pad, whereas for Buffing/Polishing with UHS Floor Machines the 3M 3600 Eraser Burnishing Pad is recommended.
