We get plenty of calls from people at their wits end because their beautiful sandstone floor has turned into a brown, muddy mess. That’s why we offer a free no-obligation consultation.
Sandstone has been used in flooring for centuries and this type of stone flooring continues to be a popular choice.
Keeping A Sandstone Floor Clean Is Not A Simple Job
The two main reasons you will have problems with your sandstone floor are:
- the structure of the stone
- and not using a stone sealer
Sandstone is an open stone which means that dirt can easily spread into the pores and voids in the surface of the stone, making it difficult to remove soil if you don’t have the correct equipment.
The rough surface of the stone means that mopping alone will not remove much of the surface dirt. It just spreads the dirt around the surface of the stone and into the grout lines.
Using A Professional To Clean Your Floor Gives A Beautiful Floor
First we apply a deep cleaning solution to start breaking down soil and grease that had seeped into the surface of the stone.
Then we used a rotary scrubbing machine to work the cleaning solution deep into the surface pros of the stone to emulsify the oil and dirt, ready for removal.
Finally we used a clean and capture tool that sprays pressurised hot rinse water onto the floor. The water picks up the emulsified dirt and they are instantly vacuumed away into our van mounted recovery tank.
The result is a beautiful clean floor.
The secret to maintaining the beauty of the stone is to apply a sandstone sealer that prevents prevent soil and spills seeping into the surface of the stone as well as making it easier to clean the floor.

Choosing A Sandstone Sealer To Protect Your Sandstone Floor
This picture clearly demonstrates a major benefit of sandstone sealers. Sandstone sealers will give you time to mop up spills and accidents before they have the chance to penetrate into the stone and make an ugly stain. If you have experienced mopping a sandstone floor you will know how hard it can be. The sandstone soaks up the cleaning fluid before you have had a chance to move the mop. Mopping will be easier, as the floor will not try to soak up the cleaning fluid.
