Does Natural Stone Last Longer Than Wood

When it comes to natural stone and wood floors, both require consistent care in order to get the longest lifespan possible. When properly cared for natural stone can outlast wood by several decades. This is especially the case when it comes to outdoor living spaces. Stone patios, in the long run, will outlast wooden decks. The type of stone you choose for your building material will also play a role in the amount of time it looks right. You will need to choose between natural stone, manufactured stone, veneer stone, and decorative stone. Depending on the type you have will also impact the way you need to care for the stone.


Should I Seal My Outdoor Stone Floors?

Sealing your natural stone surfaces can help to protect them and increase the longevity of your surfaces. When your natural stone is unsealed it becomes vulnerable. Even small amounts of build-up or left behind particles of grime, dirt, or moisture can cause serious damage. While outdoor stone surfaces may also benefit from sealing, it is not always necessary in order to preserve how they look or how long they last.

Stay on top of your stone sealing in order to keep them protected and increase their lifespan. It is important that you only clean your natural stone surfaces with specific cleaning products that are safe for the vulnerabilities of your natural stone surface. At Modern Stone Care in Houston, we make our own formula of stone cleaner to help get the best clean without damaging your natural stone surfaces. Look below to learn more about this cleaning agent and why it is the safest product to treat your natural stone surfaces.


Safe Stone Floor Cleaner

Modern Stone Care Stone & Tile Floor Cleaner is a neutral (ph 7) marble safe floor cleaner which is to be used for regular maintenance on any hard surface not harmed by water. It was originally made to protect calcite based stones, such as marble, limestone, & travertine, which are alkaline in nature due to the mineral content, from chemical etching. It’s no rinse, streak free properties make this cleaner ideal for any hard surface, as it does not leave a dulling film or residue. Special organic slats in its formula act as “moisturizers” thus preventing natural stone from “drying out.” It also contains optical brighteners to enhance the finish of the surface on which it is used.
