Do not touch non-neutral materials, and all stones are afraid of acid and alkali. For example, acid often causes pyrite minerals in granite to oxidize and produce yellowing. The acid will decompose calcium carbonate contained in marble and cause surface erosion. Alkali will also erode granite feldspar and quartz silicification. The crystal grain boundary causes the phenomenon of crystal grain peeling. Therefore, non-neutral items are the original culprits that destroy the stone mirror.
Do not arbitrarily wax. There are many kinds of wax on the market, including water-based wax, stearic acid wax, oily wax, acrylic wax and so on. These waxes basically contain acid and alkali substances. Not only will it block the pores of the stone’s breathing, but it will also be stained with dust and form wax scale, causing yellowing on the surface of the stone. However, if it is necessary for pedestrians and places with high frequency of goods to be waxed, you must consult a professional maintenance company to guide wax use and maintenance.
Do not use non-neutral detergents indiscriminately. In order to achieve a quick cleaning effect, general cleaning agents contain acid and alkali. Therefore, if cleaning agents with unknown ingredients are used for a long time, the surface gloss of the stone will be lost, and the residue of non-neutral agents is also the main cause of stone disease in the future. .
Do not cover carpets and debris for a long time. In order to keep the stone breathing smooth, avoid covering the surface of the stone with carpets and debris for a long time, otherwise the moisture under the stone cannot volatilize through the pores of the stone. The stone will cause annoying stone pathological problems due to excessive moisture and increased water content. If you must lay carpets and pile up debris, please don’t forget to change it frequently.
Keep it clean and thorough. Both hard granite (hardness HRs88-111±4-7) or soft marble (hardness HRs46-77±3-5) are not resistant to long-term ravages of wind sand and soil particles. Therefore, from time to time, use a dust collector and electrostatic mop to thoroughly remove dust and clean. It is best to place a dust-removing mat at the entrance of the commercial space. It is best to put on slippers after entering the house to filter the sand particles carried by the shoes to reduce the chance of sand dust abrading the stone surface.
Regular maintenance and maintenance of gloss. Relying on dust removal and cleaning alone cannot keep the bright stone luster continuously. Therefore, it is necessary to regularly ask a professional company to send people to do maintenance and gloss regeneration maintenance work, such as: using crystallization liquid to recrystallize the marble surface, or using polishing powder to regenerate the luster of the marble or granite surface, or using polishing powder to regenerate the marble or flower The granite surface regenerates its luster or uses a breathable luster protector, etc. It can keep your stone as new forever.
Decontaminate immediately. All stones have natural pores, and pollution sources (oil, tea, coffee, cola, soy sauce, ink, etc.) will easily penetrate into the stone along the pores and form annoying stains, so you must choose good quality stone Special protective agent is applied on the stone to prevent pollution sources from polluting the stone. It is necessary to know that all protective agents cannot prevent pollution 100% for a long time, so once a pollution source is poured on the stone, it must be cleared immediately to prevent it from penetrating into the pores of the stone.
Always keep ventilated and dry. Stone is afraid that the environmental humidity is too high. Water vapor will produce hydration, hydrolysis, and carbonation of stone, produce water spots, whitening, weathering, denudation, rust, and other diseases, and destroy the stone. Therefore, the stone installation should always be ventilated and dry.
Protective treatment should be applied regularly. To prolong the life of the stone and prevent the penetration of water and pollution sources, it is necessary to perform protective treatment on a regular basis (depending on the type of stone and the quality of the protective agent, it is best to do this treatment for 1-2 years).
Special attention must be paid to the quality of the protective agent. It must be able to maintain the air permeability, water-resistance, and antifouling properties of the stone after application. Never use protective agents with unknown origins, as they will not only fail to achieve the protective effect but will increase the trouble of stone maintenance.
