Natural Stone Porous Materials Protection Cleaning D.I.Y.

Live a life of luxury by taking care of your stone

Protecting your stone is essential for a luxury property.

If you're going to buy a luxury property, you'll want to take care of it. Imagine spending all the money to buy yourself that stunning, sea-side home with a view onto a gorgeous vista, only to watch it degrade and fall apart over time. 

Unfortunately, this is what happens to all too many luxury properties. The home buyer neglects the natural stone that lends their home that stately air, and pretty soon what was once the best-looking property on the block could turn into an eyesore. 

Fortunately, with the right products and preparation, this doesn't have to happen to your property. 

Luxury homes and natural stone

Look at any luxury home, and it's likely to have a generous helping of marble and granite. Marble floors, with their trademark swirls and veins, create a sophisticated and sumptuous look for any home, and with its toughness, marble is perfect for a variety of other surfaces: A mantlepiece for a fireplace, a tub, a kitchen countertop. 

Polished granite is also a common sight when it comes to kitchen countertops due to its durability, its resistance to scratching and heat and the fact that it's so easy to care for. 

But therein lies the rub: You have to care for it. 

Caring for your stone

If you want your home's palatial feel to last, marble and granite protection are crucial

A tablespoon of water left on a granite tile for only half an hour will result in an unflattering stain – particularly inconvenient if you're going to be using granite for your kitchen. Meanwhile, marble, a calcium-based stone, is sensitive to damage from acidic liquids like fruit juice, vinegar or wine, as well as water and oil.

That makes it essential to use STAIN-PROOF Original™ to seal up the stone and keep it protected from staining and further damage. Apply it on your stone surface, and continue living in luxury.
