Is Sealing Necessary for Natural Stone Floors?

Sealing your natural stone surfaces can offer vital protection and extend their lifespan. Unsealed natural stone is susceptible to damage, even from minor accumulation or residual grime, dirt, or moisture. By staying proactive in your stone sealing routine, you can shield your surfaces and enhance their durability. It’s crucial to use cleaning products specifically formulated for the vulnerabilities of your particular natural stone surface. At Modern Stone Care in Houston, we have developed our own stone cleaner formula that delivers a thorough clean without harming your natural stone surfaces.

Three Types of Sealants for Stone

Most new countertops and backsplashes arrive already sealed, eliminating the need for an initial coating. Down the line, sealing the stone again will help to preserve the look of the natural stone and prevent stains. Today, some stones feature resins that act as a built-in sealant, eliminating the need for an additional coating. If you have determined that your natural stone does require a coating, there are three main types of products to consider:

  • Surface Sealant: A surface sealant is also referred to as a strippable coating because it is applied to the surface only and is easy to remove if necessary. It is typically a water-based sealant containing polymers, such as acrylic. Because surface sealants are also available for tile floors, it is important to ensure that the product you select is intended for use on natural stone. Surface sealants are less of a commitment, but they also need to be reapplied regularly.
  • Penetrating Sealant: Penetrating sealants are commonly referred to as permanent coatings and are much more difficult to remove than a surface sealant because they are crafted of solvent-based polymers.
  • Impregnating Sealant: An impregnating sealant are a solvent-based formula that require professional application. They have become a popular choice for sealing outdoor stone because they are not affected by UV light and don’t alter the appearance of the stone. Although professional application is required, this sealant typically lasts for several years before another application is needed.

Pros of Sealing Natural Stone

Taking the time to add a coat of sealant to your natural stone can provide many benefits. Not only does it protect against stains, but it also helps to prevent acid erosion and bacteria growth. This step also helps to keep any outdoor stone from being susceptible to frost weathering and salt damage. On the floor, some coatings even add a layer of slip resistance, ensuring sure footing.
