Jeremy Stewart, owner of Seamless Flooring Systems SA, discusses how seamless stone flooring should be maintained in order to retain the floor’s integrity for a long-lasting, beautiful floor.
Seamless stone flooring is a low maintenance flooring system. In order to retain its beauty and structural integrity, the manufacturer’s maintenance instructions and standards must be followed.
An open-pore stone flooring system has spaces between the stones that can trap dirt. To remove this dirt build-up in external areas, wet down the area with water and/or use a wet and dry vacuum cleaner to suck up the dirt from between the aggregate. Use a soft bristled-broom in circular motions to loosen stubborn dirt. For internal areas, a micro-fibre mop can be used for everyday cleaning or to refresh the floors’ surface.
Spills and/or areas which require deep cleaning can be cleaned with a pH neutral cleaning detergent, warm water, a soft-bristled broom and wet extraction cleaner. Always rinse the floor with fresh water after a neutral cleaning detergent has been used.
Avoid using hydrochloric acid, pure Jik, chlorine or any other aggressive chemicals on a seamless flooring surface as these chemicals could affect the structural integrity of the system. Should the floor become damaged through chemical, mechanical or other means, the installer should be contacted immediately for professional advice.
