Natural Stone Stain Prevention and Treatment in Houston

Natural Stone Stain Prevention and Treatment in Houston

Preventing Stains on Natural Stone in Houston Natural stone, such as, marble, granite, slate, travertine, and limestone, are all gorgeous choices when looking at flooring for your home. However, the problem with these stunning natural stones is how vulnerable they are to damage. Primarily, the damage that afflicts natural stone comes in the form of staining and etching. What makes natural stone so much more susceptible to staining than other materials, is the fact that it is made of porous materials. This means they are made of very many holes, like underground hollowed out tunnels leading from one side of the stone to another. This makes them similar to a sponge but made out of a harder substance. So, like a sponge, these stones are quick to absorb liquids, trapping the liquids within the tunnels below the surface. This can be very problematic for a lightly colored stone and say, a glass of red wine.   So what can you do to prevent these substances from penetrating your natural stone, leaving it with an obvious and unsightly stain? Seal it! We are constantly trying to stress the importance of sealing your natural stone floors to protect them against outside influences. …
