A Very Simple Method For Cleaning Granite Floors
Although the granite floor is made of stone, that doesn’t mean it can handle any kind of cleaning.
If you have just installed or brecciated the granite floor, you should not use a damp mop on the floor. This will not damage your floor, but it is likely to leave highly visible scratches when spreading the fine dust that remains. It is best to use an untreated dry dust mop and vacuum cleaner.
Avoid daily dirt buildup by cleaning daily with a dry powder microfiber mop or moistened with lukewarm water. This will help minimize the need for deep cleaning and let the natural beauty of your floor shine through.
If you must lean toward deep cleaning, don’t overdo it with cleaning products. Dishwashing soap that is ph-neutral will work best. Also be sure to rinse the floor well and dry it with a cloth instead of letting it air dry.
Polished granite floors should be polished as regularly as possible. A small room can be polished with a dry cloth and a little wax. You can also try a chamois on a clean, damp surface: the fabric should polish its granite to achieve a nice shine. On the other hand, polishing your granite floor can make it very slippery, so skip this step or be extremely careful.
If the sealer was applied at the time of installation, you should take care to know the brand and the suggestion in your application instructions. In addition, it is important to know the type of granite.
