Home Maintenance Guidelines
for all types of Natural Stone Surfaces…

MARBLE, GRANITE, OR NATURAL STONE

FLOORING



Daily: Wipe down shower walls and floor with a squeegee to remove most soap scum and water. Use a towel to dry any areas where water might puddle.

Weekly: Use a squeegee to wipe down entire shower. Next, spray disinfecting shower cleaner onto walls (one wall at a time) and wipe dry with a towel. Repeat the process for all walls and the floor.

Yearly or bi-yearly: Once natural stone tiles lose luster, become pitted, have permanent water streaks or look worn, it is time to call Integrity Marble & Granite to have a professionally trained stone technician restore your shower back to its original condition.

COUNTERTOPS


Daily: Wipe off debris with a dry paper towel. After large debris has been removed, wipe down entire countertop with either a natural stone, anti-bacterial safe wipe, or a natural stone soap (pH7) and a clean damp paper towel.

Every 2 to 3 years (granite countertops): Countertops should be re-sealed to guard against staining, create easier wipe-up, strengthen countertops and preserve their natural beauty.

Yearly or bi-yearly (marble, limestone or travertine countertops): As countertops lose their luster or become water and chemically spotted, an Integrity Marble & Granite professionally trained stone technician should be called in to restore countertops back to their original condition.

TILE AND GROUT CERAMIC, PORCELAIN AND

MAN-MADE-MATERIALS


A couple times weekly: Sweep floor free of debris (dirt, dust and sand) into dustpan.

Weekly: Mop floor with a damp (not too wet) cotton string type mop combined with a high alkaline cleaner and hot water. Follow instructions on the alkaline cleaner for the proper mixing ratio. Change mop water as soon as it becomes brown.

Yearly or bi-yearly: If grout on floor begins to become permanently discolored, it is time to call Integrity Marble & Granite to have the grout professionally cleaned to restore the grout and tile back to their original condition.
