3.4. JANITORIAL CLEANING RECOMMENDATIONS FOR STONE FLOORS
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!
