Case Studies

Q: My Floor layer has finished tiling the floor, the floor is still a little dusty, and should I mop it clean.

A: No, DON’T use a damp mop on your floor immediately after it being laid and grouted. By doing this any fine powder most likely left on the floor will be trapped in the water and may leave ugly and hard-to-remove streaks all over the floor. For the first few days or so, just use a soft cloth to dust mop the floor until (no whitish powder) is being removed .Test this with your hand by rubbing the floor.

Q - When my floor is ready for mopping can I use my normal floor cleaner

A - No, DON’T use your everyday Household cleaning products on natural stone floors. A lot of everyday brands of floor and wall tile cleaning products are harmful to both the protective sealer, as well as your stone. The sealer that has been applied can be broken down by bleach and other abrasive products over time. This leaves the natural stone “exposed” and more susceptible to staining. Specialist stone wash can be purchase as not much more cost than normal cleaners. These are more mild detergents which both preserve and re enforce the sealer which has been applied, as well as clean stone tiles. Lithofin Easy Care is a great example of good quality everyday stone cleaning product.

Lithofin Easy Care is ideal for use on honed limestone, travertine, or any porous stone tiles, which have had only impregnating sealers applied. Use Lithofin Easy Care, on floors sealed with Lithofin MN Stain Stop, Lithofin MN Colour Intensifier, Lithofin MN Slate Seal and tiles sealed with linseed oil.
