Coasters: Use coasters under all glasses, particularly containing citrus juices or alcohol.
Trivets: While most natural stones are resistant to heat, the use of trivets or mats is recommended.
Dust Mopping: Using a clean, non-treated, dry dust mop, dust interior floors thoroughly. Grit, Sand and dirt are abrasive and can damage your natural stone floors.
Mats/Rugs: Mats or area rugs inside and out of an entrance will help minimize sand and dirt that may scratch the surface of natural stone. Ensure that the underside of the rug is slip resistant.
Vacuum Cleaners: When using a vacuum, ensure all attachments and wheels are smooth as they can scratch the surface of some stones.
Spills: Blot the spill with a paper towel immediately. When cleaning up spills, do not wipe the area, as that only spreads the spill. Flush the area with water mixed with a mild cleaner and rinse. Repeat this step if needed. Thoroughly dry the area with a soft cloth.
