What is the Best Way to Care for Your Nature Stone Floor?

One of the best reasons to invest in a Nature Stone basement or garage floor is because it is so easy to maintain. While you may have some concerns about how to take care of it over time, especially with colder weather on the horizon, you can rest assured that caring for your natural stone floor is easy.

Keeping your floor clean is easy. With a Nature Stone floor, you can keep it looking like it was just installed with just a few steps. No matter where your floor is located – whether in your garage, basement, laundry room, sun room or even outdoors – the first step is to sweep any debris off of it on a regular basis. If you floor is outdoors or in your garage, you can also use a yard blower to remove leaves and twigs. For epoxy flooring in your basement, a broom or vacuum will remove dust, crumbs and hair from the floor. Once your floor has been swept or vacuumed, simply mop it off with a weak floor cleaning solution. For outdoor applications, you can hose your deck, garage or hot tub surround off to get it clean.

Another question many of our new floor owners have is how to prevent damage over the long term. The best way to do this is to remember just a few things. If you need to move a large, heavy object, such as a couch or wood picnic table, then take the time to lift it off of the floor instead of dragging it. This is critical especially if you are moving it over an edge of the floor where the stone and epoxy floor is either ending or abuts another type of flooring. By lifting heavy objects, you can make sure that no pebbles are accidentally knocked loose from your floor.

For those who live in areas that flood, you may be concerned about restoring your floor after a fall basement flood. If this does happen to you, you will be so happy that you have installed a Nature Stone floor. Unlike carpet, your Nature Stone floor will easily withstand any flood. Once the water has been removed, remove any large debris or mud and wash the floor with a mild detergent. Your floor will be like new!

As you can see, taking care of your Nature Stone floor is an easy process. A quick sweep and a gentle mop will keep your floor looking great for a lifetime. For more information, feel free to contact us
