How YOU can clean and protect your stone benchtops

Whilst professional cleaning of your stone kitchen benchtops, bathroom vanities, bartops and furniture is recommended every 12 months, there are many things YOU can do to keep your precious stone looking fresh, clean and stain free for longer.

Tips for protecting your stone benchtops:

  • Clean the stone surface with a recommended product such as S-P Cleaner and a soft damp cloth after every use, to avoid the build up of bacteria and substances that may scratch or etch the surface.
  • Use only a white scourer such as a Scrub A Dub for removal of stubborn food.
  • NEVER use green scourers or steel wool to remove stains on any stone surface as these will scratch.
  • Remove spills immediately. Acidic substances such as juice, coffee, tea, vinegar and wine will etch marble, limestone and travertine benchtops if left for more than a few minutes.
  • Rinse the stone surface after cleaning with fresh water to remove all excess dirt and detergent and dry with a soft cloth.
  • Use cutting boards on stone kitchen benchtops, coasters on bartops and tables, and mats under products on vanities.
  • Use heat-proof mats always when placing hot pots and pans on stone kitchen benchtops. Never place them directly onto the stone.
  • Use mats under cosmetics, perfumes and toiletries on stone bathroom vanities, to prevent etching and ring marks on marble.
  • Use coasters on stone coffee tables, bar tables and counter tops to prevent etching and staining from wine and alcohol.
  • Avoid using supermarket cleaners containing harsh abrasive creams, bleaches, caustic chemicals, acidic orange and lemon citrus cleaners and vinegar, and scourers as scratches are highly visible on glossy stone surfaces.

Floor Polishing AfterRejuvenata Active Stone Cleaner
How YOU can clean and protect your stone floor tiles

There are a few simple steps you can take to ensure that your stone floor tiles stay clean and undamaged for longer.  Regular maintenance with recommended products will extend the need for professional stone tile resurfacing.

Tips for protecting your stone floor tiles:

  • Sweep floors on a daily basis to prevent dirt from scratching the surface under foot and accumulating in the grout.
  • Use a soft bristled broom. This is the most effective and gentle method for cleaning smooth stone floor tiles.
  • Vacuum rough textured surfaces, as this is more effective than sweeping.  The suction will pull the dirt fromwithin the textured surface.  Ensure that the vacuum cleaner wheels do not have grit on them and that the felt on the head is not worn so these do not scratch the floor.
  • Mop on a regular basis after sweeping or vacuuming.
  • NEVER use green scourers or steel wool to remove stains on any stone surface as these will scratch.
  • Use a microfibre mop with a soft pad. This can be used wet or dry.  It usually comes with a large swivel head which makes sweeping quick and easy.  It picks up the dirt and dust as it moves and can be easily manoeuvred into corners. The microfibre pad can then be removed and rinsed thoroughly.
  • Damp mopping with a microfibre mop will pick up any residual dirt after sweeping.
  • Wet mopping or washing with a microfibre mop, warm water and a recommended product such as S-P Cleaner, will give a more thorough clean.
  • Change mopping water every second squeeze so that dirt and grit is not continually transferred back to the floor.
  • Rinse the floor after mopping to ensure the dirty water is completely removed from the surface.
  • Wipe the floor dry with a cloth or towel as this will remove any product residue, water and streaks.

  • Remove mould on silicone sooner than later to prevent overgrowth. The longer the mould is attached to the silicone, the harder it is to remove.
  • Take care when using mould removing products, such as bleach. if it contacts the stone it can dull the tiles over time.  If in doubt leave this to a professional.
  • Do not allow products that contain bleach to accumulate on the floor of the shower, as they will dull the surface.
  • IMPORTANT: DO NOT mix bleach with ammonia based products, as it will cause a toxic chemical reaction.
  • Rinse the entire shower with fresh water after cleaning to remove excess product.
  • Dry the area as thoroughly as possible after cleaning, with a dry sponge, towel or squeegee, to prevent the growth of mould and mildew.
  • Ensure adequate ventilation when using any cleaning products in a confined space such as a shower.
