In most cases, natural stone successfully replaces any modern finishing materials as, for instance, plastic or metal alloys. It is not only beautiful but also functional. An example is use of granite and other super hard igneous rocks in premises with highly corrosive environments. First of all, these are premises with high humidity, i.e. bathrooms, WC facilities, baths, pools. The destructive effect of water and water vapor over time will cause corrosion of any metal, but not granite.
Stone products should be treated with care. But the same can be said about anything. As a rule, care for the stone starts immediately after its laying. For example, traces of cement used to fix the natural stone tile to a wall or a floor can be seen on this tile. A special detergent that will help to remove the cement should be purchased. This detergent will be also useful in the future when removing various deposits (mold, lime formation) from the stone. Universal stone cleaners should also be used to remove stains from oil, grease, paint, rust. A nuance to be known concerning the care of the floor made of natural stone: prior to mopping up the floor, it must be carefully swept, otherwise, over time, minor scratches will appear and the floor will become dull. For mopping up, it is better to use soft sponges, as well as special detergents for natural stone. The same can be said about the care of countertops, window sills, statues, gazebos made of natural stone, i.e. it is better to use special detergents.
Products made of natural stone must be polished from time to time (as and when required).
Such care requires purchasing special detergents from reliable companies. For instance, the Italian company called Bellinzoni represents a large range of such products. And there will be no problems. Such detergents have quite a reasonable price. And your granite tabletop in the kitchen or a small marble statuette will make your family happy every day for many, many years.
