STONE CARE AND MAINTENANCE
The first step in proper stone care and maintenance is to understand your stone’s geological classification and composition. This information will help you identify the appropriate cleaning products to use and the best way to care for your natural stone to ensure your complete satisfaction, and provide years of long-lasting, durable beauty. Natural stone is categorized into three fundamental geological classifications by their respective formation processes, which are Sedimentary, Metamorphic, and Igneous. Additionally, stones in each category can either be Calcareous or Siliceous. Calcareous stone is mainly composed of calcium carbonate, a chemical compound commonly found in natural stone, shells, and pearls. Calcium carbonate is sensitive to acidic solutions; hence, mild, non-acidic cleaners are recommended. Siliceous stone, as the term implies, is one primarily composed of silicates, such as quartz, feldspar, mica, etc. Consequently, a siliceous stone is generally resistant to most acids found in kitchen settings. Nonetheless, it is not recommended to use acidic cleaners because these stones can contain trace levels of acid minerals.
TYPES OF FINISHES
Polished: Grinding, sanding, and buffing produce a high-gloss, mirror-like surface.
Honed: Grinding and sanding produce a smooth, yet not glossy finish.
Flamed: A flamed surface is achieved by subjecting the stone to the high- temperature flame of a torch, burning most of the carbon content, leaving textured Quartzites with gentle relief.
Leather: This finish gives the stone a suede look and feel. The texture is smooth and slip-resistant.
