Unfortunately, one of the most common reasons homeowners request our professional stone cleaning and sealing services is because they're using the inappropriate cleaning products on their stone surfaces.

It is not until the stone is damaged that people ask, "what can I use to clean natural stone?"

The vast majority of people don't pay attention to what is in the cleaning products they bring into their homes. Although most prove to be quite effective at doing their job, some might not be safe for all your surfaces.

Even hiring a cleaning company to clean your stone surfaces does not guarantee they are using stone-safe cleaners. It's pretty common to hear that customers have no idea what cleaning companies are using to perform their service. Some have claimed companies are using a batch of their own "secret formula" to get the job done.

The problem here is that these companies are getting paid to clean, not to look out for your stone surfaces. Therefore it's not uncommon to see stone surfaces suffering damage from these services in the long run.

Here are some common misconceptions about cleaning products being used on stone surfaces. Later, we'll show you what products you should be using on your natural stone surfaces and some tips to get your cleaning routine organized.

What all these hazardous to stone products have in common are their pH values. Those chemical cleaners that are high in basicity (bleach) or in acidity (ammonia) tend to cause serious damage to the stone's integrity.

The cleaners you want to use on your hard surfaces should have a pH value that's right in the middle.
