Natural stones are delicate and hence dirt and liquids wear them off quickly and they lose their aesthetic value over time. Therefore, it’s important that the natural stones are sealed properly so that their natural appearance and luster is kept intact.
Stone sealing is a great way to prevent your natural stones from stains. Most natural stones are porous and have swirls or veins, thereby, absorb liquids quickly and are more susceptible to stains. Sealers act as a shield and repel spills and stains on the surface.
Here at stone surgeons, we employ sealing services to boost your stone surface durability. Sealing marble, granite, travertine, limestone, etc. stone platforms provide several benefits which include but are not limited to:
- Providing stain resistance.
- Ensures easy cleanup.
- Protects and enhances your stone floor’s natural beauty.
- Helps retain your stone’s natural luster.
If you are not sure whether your stone platform (It can be any platform, from stone counter tops to stone floors) requires sealing or not, you can perform a simple test at home. Simply sprinkle a few drops of water on the countertop or floor. Wipe off the water after 15 minutes. If the water soaks into the stone and makes the stone look darker, your floor or countertop requires sealing.
It is relative easier to identify if your natural stones are water resistant but testing oil repellency is not that simple. Our engineers are proficient in different techniques of stone sealing and can help your stones repel liquids such as water or oils and create a physical barrier between dirt and liquids.
