Limestone restoration

Limestone, a natural stone that provides any place a stunning rustic, earthy, and natural aesthetic, is seen in some of the world's most magnificent buildings. Limestone is an excellent choice in hotter regions due to its ability to retain heat.

With proper care and maintenance, your limestone surfaces will always look as good as the day they were placed and will provide you with a lifetime of wonderful service.

Caring For Your Limestone

To begin with, a pH-balanced cleaning designed exclusively for marble and limestone surfaces should be used. Chemicals, abrasives and acidic cleaners can induce etching, which happens when a calcium-based stone, such as limestone, travertine, or marble, comes into touch with anything acidic and produces what seems to be a foggy white watermark.

Limestone tiles are porous and prone to scratches, stains, and fractures, which means they may be quickly damaged if handled wrongly.

Limestone is a natural product that needs to breathe; therefore, rather than coating the stone with synthetic sealers or urethane, Stone Doctor Australia protects your limestone with our highest quality impregnating penetrating sealer, which allows your natural stone to breathe freely while also providing the highest quality stain protection.

From marble to granite, and limestone, they all have a tendency to take on stains from harsh and unwanted compounds. If you are going through something facing some issues with keeping your stone surfaces stain-free, Lithofin MN Stain-Stop ECO is the key.

Heavier etch marks or stains, such as textured etching or etching that covers a wider area, should be removed by expert stone care and restoration specialist.

The Issue With Do-It-Yourself Work

It is sometimes advisable to leave limestone restoration to specialists. It's advisable not to try and restore it yourself because the operations can be difficult and, if done wrong, can cause irreparable harm to the stone.

A skilled limestone restoration expert will be able to remove the finish using the proper tools and stripping solutions, and then hone and polish your limestone surfaces to a low shine or even a high sheen, depending on your desire.
