Natural Stone

Natural stone is a product of nature. No two tiles are exactly alike. A customer should request a sample of the tile from their sales representative prior to making a final decision. Furthermore, Madison Flooring and Design requires that a customer inspects the purchased material prior to installation to check color, veining, thickness, sizing, and finish. Please ask for information on pre-sealing, sealing, and ongoing maintenance.

  • Tumbled Surface:

Special Considerations

  • Color variations are common and enhance the natural beauty of each stone. Be sure to inspect multiple samples of the stone before selection to ensure satisfaction with colors and patterns.

 

Maintenance

  • Do clean with a dust mop and neutral cleaner to remove most dirt.
  • Do use a penetrating sealer to prevent staining. Because many stones are porous to some degree, excessive water may cause reactions such as oxidation (rust), spalling, deterioration of dry veins, etc. “Special impregnating” sealers are recommended to avoid these problems. Madison Flooring and Design representatives can recommend the appropriate sealer.
  • Do clean natural stones with “special stone cleaners”, “pH balanced cleaners” or “neutral base cleaners.”
  •  Do not clean any natural stone with acidic cleaners, including (but not limited to) vinegar or cleaners with “lemon” or “lime” on the label. These products will abrade the polish from the stone. Sealers DO NOT protect polished surfaces from these types of cleaners.
