Natural stone is strong and stable. It exudes a rich, organic, beautiful surface and has a confident, timeless presence in any room. It is the world’s oldest building material. Imagine its beauty and elegance in your home.
Stone is mined from quarries all around the world, which means no two stones will look the same. Depending on the processes that created the stone, each piece has an individual character that cannot be replicated. The unique grains, natural clefts, and uneven ridges add charm to your home. With the proper maintenance, the right stone tile can stand up to almost anything.
Common natural stone flooring includes slate, marble, limestone, travertine, granite, and sandstone. Stones are natural, nonpolluting, and eco-friendly. Stone can be easy to maintain. Daily sweeping will remove any loose dirt and a weekly damp mop with a mild detergent will keep your floors clean. While it can be more expensive, natural stone increases home value and provides your home with a new level of elegance.
Understanding the best methods to care for your natural stone flooring will help maintain its beauty and keep it close to its original condition.
Here’s what you need to know about caring for your beautiful natural stone today and maintaining its timeless look for many tomorrows.
