How Do You Clean Limestone?
Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed of crystal forms of calcium carbonate and has been used as flooring for hundreds of years. Unlike other natural stone materials, limestone demonstrates a certain solubility in water and weak acid solutions meaning that water and acidic fluids (think juice or coffee) can cause surface marking and in more severe cases, penetrate the surface, infiltrate cracks, and cause significant damage. Limestone has, despite these negative aspects, been a popular choice for floors for many years and despite its delicacy and porous nature – is deceptively tough and more hardwearing than many people would imagine. Although this natural stone is quite durable, it is also a material that can stain easily. This makes limestone cleaning particularly tricky.
The key to maintaining limestone's rugged and timeless aesthetically pleasing appearance is careful cleaning, maintenance and above all - protecting the surface.
