Are there stone floors in your home? They are probably dirty and have completely lost their appeal. I have great news for you – you can revive them and clean them so that they will perfectly fit your house.

I have made this guide so that you know exactly how to deep-clean stone flooring.

What will you need?

There are a couple of things that you should prepare before you start with the cleaning – nothing too crazy.

Prepare a bucket, clean cloths, brushes, a mop, a sponge, rubber gloves. All of the above you probably already have in your home. There are a couple of things that you may need to buy – a squeegee, a foam roller, stone floor cleaning products.

– The first step

You should always test the stone floor cleaning products that you have gotten from the store to avoid any damage to the flooring. Apply a very small amount in a corner and see if there is some type of reaction, damage, stain, etc.

– The second step

If everything is okay, proceed with mixing the cleaner with water in a bucket. Apply with the squeegee for larger areas and a sponge for corners and smaller areas.

– The third step

After you leave the cleaner for 10-15 minutes, make sure you scrub all areas that have stains and dirt patches with a brush.

– The fourth step

It’s time to wipe everything clean. Fill in a bucket with water, grab the mop, and start cleaning. When done, grab a cloth and dry the surface.

Regular maintenance of stone floors

It’s normal for any type of flooring to get dirty. There are some little steps you can do on a regular basis that will ensure the cleanliness of your stone floors for longer.

Mop at least once a week and sweep your floors on a daily basis to remove dirt and dust.
