How To Prep Your Stone Before Sealing

Preparing Your Stone

Preparing your stone for a sealant is relatively easy. There are also a few options you can take when approaching this process. We recommend purchasing a neutral PH stone cleaner and apply a few drops to the stone. If you cannot find a stone cleaner with this kind of PH level, then a mild dishwashing detergent will work. Mix it with warm water to get the best results.

Clean your stone before applying seal to maximize results.

From there, use a clean mop to cover the surface with the cleaner. Be careful about how much cleaner you use. Too much cleaner could create a film that will affect the seal. If you are using a dishwashing detergent, then avoid products with lemon, vinegar, or other acids. Acids significantly affect stone like marble and limestone, so be sure you watch out for these features. Finally, rinse off the surface and then dry. You can dry with a cloth or let it air dry. It is important to note that DIYers or contractors should not use scouring powders or creams. They can create scratches on the surface, which will leave an undesired look.
