Sandstones can become an asset to your home, adding value and a touch of elegance to any space. Australian architects and designers are constantly finding new ways to use sandstone flooring when building to enhance the beauty of homes and businesses. Stone that is properly maintained will continue to make a statement for years to come.
However, this asset does come at a cost. Constant maintenance of sandstone is required from new. New stone is delivered and installed porous and untreated, leaving it defenceless against permanent staining and damage from constant use. Regular cleaning and sealing can significantly prolong the life of your homes latest investment.

The first step when cleaning sandstone is to understand the geological classification and composition of your stone. Knowing this information will help you understand exactly what chemicals and equipment you can use on your feature.
For example, cleaning sandstone requires a different application for stone that is indoors or outdoors. When cleaning sandstone tiles that are outdoors, you need to kill any bacteria causing mould and mildew and then use specialised professional equipment to remove the stains, dirt and dead bacteria.
Sand, dirt and grit are abrasive and will damage untreated sandstone. Care has to be taken when attempting to restore any sandstone.
By sealing sandstone we are able to make the area stain resistant. This will not be stain proof, but it will give you a better reaction time to attend to spills and prevent stains.
Parklane Cleaning Services is able to seal close to the pores of the sandstone tile. This process will minimise natural growth and prolong the tiles life.
Sandstones that are outdoors become susceptible to dirt, stains, mould and mildew. Regular sealing of these tiles can prevent any of that from occurring.
Especially for stone that is outside, it is important to use a sealer that both strengthens and seals all edges of the stone. Your investment is going to take a beating from the elements (acid rain, sunlight, mould and much more), it is going to need all the help it can get.
However, despite sealing your stone it is still important to continue regular cleaning and maintenance.
