How To Maintain Granite Floor

Jun 08, 2018


In all natural stone flooring material, granite is by far the hardest and most wear-resistant material. At the same time, it is also anti-fouling and anti-acid, so it is widely used in kitchen countertops and flooring materials. Although granite is very hard, it can still be scratched by quartz. The most important ingredient in the sand that enters the room through the sole is quartz. The flow of people crushed the sand and turned it into smaller particles, which pressed against the surface of the granite and caused minor scratches.

 

In the processing plant, marble requires about 40 minutes of polishing to achieve a high gloss effect. But, granite need to take several hours to achieve the same effect. Therefore, if you have a granite floor but it has become dull, you can ask others to grind and restore its luster without trouble. However, although the floor luster is restored, it is discolored and it also costs you some money. So, careful maintenance will not cause this problem.


1.Initial cleaning: Initial and comprehensive cleaning can help you to identify contaminated areas and use a neutral detergent with a pH of between 7 and 8.5 to avoid any possible corrosion or coloring of granite, cement slurry, and adjoining areas. Variety. Use a frictionless brush or cotton pad when cleaning. Note: damaged stone products  require special attentionfor your safety.

2.Chemical cleaning: When the surface is dry, the oil contamination will appear as a dark stain. Since the removal of stains is a process of continuous trial and error, we believe that chemical agents (decontamination and degreasing agents or degreasing agents) should be directly applied first. ) Smear in contaminated places. Use the agent according to the manufacturer's instructions to ensure the best results.

The scavenger uses temperatures between 15 and 27 degrees Celsius. When cleaning, keep the surface wet, let the scavenger penetrate into the interior of the stone and react for a few hours to suck the pollution onto the surface. If necessary, repeat it again. If the effect is still not satisfactory, Poultice is recommended.

3.Elimination by Poultice: Efficacy removal refers to the adsorption of stains into drug pastes. To increase the effect, different scavengers can be added to the paste. Wet the contaminated area first, then apply the medicine paste, cover it with a layer of plastic cloth, and then cut some cracks on the plastic cloth so that the paste can be dried and the stain can be absorbed. The entire adsorption and drying process can be controlled within 1-24 hours. Using paste is an effective way.

4.Protection: After the oil is removed, the granite surface is washed with water and dried, and the next step is to protect it, so as to avoid further contamination in the future. Silicon-type osmotic protective agent can protect the stone from oil contamination most effectively. The difference between the penetrating type protective agent and the surface type protective agent is that the former can completely infiltrate the stone, and any residue on the surface should be removed. Once the surface has been properly protected, contaminants, although accessible to the stone surface, will not penetrate the interior of the stone, which will make the subsequent stain removal work simple and effective.

5. Maintenance: In order to ensure the long-term beauty of the stone, you can use a neutral detergent for daily cleaning, if necessary, can be used weekly polishing agent polishing table, the use of polishing agent will also protect the stone surface from dust and water Ingredients infiltrate and give the stone a high brightness.
