Protecting Your Limestone Floor Investment
By Edward Green
There are many types of limestone. These vary a great deal in terms of porosity and hardness, as well as in colour and texture. However limestone, although very hard wearing and durable is porous and therefore prone to staining. Limestone is also not resistant to acid and harsh cleaning products, as well as spillages of acidic soft drinks, fruit juices, wine and vinegar etc can all damage stone. The Limestone Treatment System protects limestone against such damage and ensures that it stays looking its best with least possible effort.
All new porous limestone floors need to be sealed either before fixing or before grouting with a suitable Impregnator. Our product offers a free 15 year performance warranty which means if sealer doesn't stop staining we will come back free of charge and apply more sealant to stop staining. We have only had 1 callback for more protection out of literally hundreds of projects. The coverage is around 4 - 8 m2 per litre. We offer application process but you can apply it yourself if you want to. Apply as many coats as can absorbed. These will reduce porosity which not only helps protect against staining, but also enhances natural beauty of material and acts as foundation for surface finish.
If you decide to go DIY route please make sure you evenly cover tile with impregnator. Once it becomes nearly dry you will need to wipe tile with a clean white terry cloth to get an even texture across tile, this is very important. Always work in one direction and not in a haphazard fashion as streaks will appear.
