A common concern many people have when purchasing natural stone is maintenance. EcoStone Solutions can solve these problems with our easy to use Environmentally Friendly Product. Stone Care maintenance should not be a concern as it generally requires the same amount of care as any other floor or countertop surface.You need to perform preventative maintenance on all your stone surfaces because an ounce of prevention is much easier than a restoration project, and much less expensive.


Granite has become the most popular decorative surface in the kitchen. Granite is an attractive and durable natural material but is susceptible to staining as it ranges from slightly porous to very porous. To protect all granite surfaces from staining, we recommend our Granito Impregnator. When applied properly, Granito does not leave a surface coating that could affect food preparation and it will not change the natural appearance of the granite. For routine cleaning, we recommend Kleen Stone Plus, which is safe enough to use daily on granite, tile and other countertop masonry surfaces.

Floors Typically we find travertine, marble or limestone used on our floors. The accumulation of dirt and grit can damage these natural stone surfaces. To minimize wear, sweep or dust surfaces frequently and use mats at all entrances and under areas subject to high traffic conditions. Because the porosity of these flooring materials can lead to staining, we recommend you protect these surfaces with our Travertino & Marmo Impregnator. After the floors are swept or dust mopped, use diluted Kleen Stone to damp mop these surfaces to return them to their natural attractive appearance.


Marble and granite attract soap scum, just like ceramic and porcelain tile. Keep a squeegee available for shower walls, and clean all stone surfaces regularly with Kleen Stone Plus to keep them protected. Use Basic Impregnator in showers to protect against staining.


Ceramic and porcelain tile generally do not need to be protected, but the grout does. Protect with Basic Impregnator, which is easy to use, and cost effective. When your grout needs a thorough cleaning, use Big Time Grout Cleaner. Maintain with Kleen Stone or Kleen Stone Plus for additional protection.

  1. This is the fantastic start reading for me, Must acknowledge you will be a great bloggers I ever observed.Thank you for post information.

  2. Such splendid for posting such one of a kind post! This article author who is certainly knows what he is doing but also extremely admirably presented too. There normally isn’t a limited number of peeps who can create such refined articles .My best friend Veron referred me to this url a number of days ago but currently this is the very first time I’m visiting here. Guess what, I’m gonna bookmark it! Woots!

  3. I am the first time on this site and am really enthusiastic about and so many good articles. I think it’s just very good.

  4. hey impressive little blogging site ya got right here 🙂 I am using the identical design template on my own website however for whatever nutty reason it looks to reload a lot quicker on this web site even though the one you have is carrying considerably more material. Have you been implementing any individual plugins or widgets that will speed it up? If you could quite possibly share the programs so that I might use them on my websites so twilight new moon users could watch twilight new moon online trailers and videos a lot quicker I’d be happy – many thanks in advance 🙂

  5. I always enjoy reading intelligent articles by an individual who is obviously up to snuff on their chosen subject. I’ll be following this thread with great interest. Keep up the good work, see you next time

  6. The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years… the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.

    Keep up the good work we may be able to save our planet

  7. It does seem that everybody is into eco firendly stuff lately. Don’t fully understand it though, but thanks for trying to explain it. Appreciate you shedding light into this matter. Keep it up
