It takes lot of hard work to select the right tiles for your home. Natural Stone Tiles are one of the most beautiful looking and durable tiles, so to make sure they stay in the best condition for a long time, it is important to take proper care of them. Here are some care and maintenance tips by Siera Stone Ltd-the best tiling company in London to ensure your stone flooring stays new like for a long time.
Make sure your tiles are properly treated
All stone tiles are naturally porous, so they require special treatment in order to improve their stain resistance and durability. For example, as Limestone & Travertine are very porous, they require sealing prior to being laid. Granite tiles or Slate tiles on the other hand, can be sealed after being laid as they are denser in comparison to Limestone and Travertine. Application of sealers is also very important to protect your stone against water, oils, stubborn dirt and grease. It makes maintenance a lot easier and enhances the beauty of your natural stone tiles.

How to clean your natural stone tiles?
Here are some important instructions by Siera Stone Ltd’s tiling experts:
· Regular sweeping, mopping together with vacuum cleaning is advised. Any abrasive or acidic cleaning agent should be avoided as they can remove the protective sealant or may even damage your stone tiles.
· Always use your vacuum cleaner with ‘hard floor’ mode.
· Even though a sealant will protect your tiles from getting stained, any spill should be immediately cleaned.
· A specially formulated stone tile cleaner should only be used to clean natural stone tiles. Such cleaners do not contain damaging chemicals and effectively clean your tiles, while providing added protection to such tiles.
Regular care and maintenance of your natural stone tiles will not just make your house look beautiful for years but will also give you the years of durability and value for money you expect.
