What is limestone?
Limestone is a beautiful sedimentary rock whose basic components are fragments of old sea life like molluscs and coral. It has been a beautiful and popular construction material throughout history, with even the fabled pyramids in Egypt being made of limestone.
Timeless, natural and reliable, limestone tile has been used through the ages on, in and around historic mansions, churches and buildings from Barcelona to Rome and beyond. Today, it is still one of the most attractive, adaptable and affordable natural stones suitable for the modern home and business.
What is limestone sealing?
If limestone tiles are professionally sealed and maintained, they will keep that ruggedly sophisticated look in any area or room of your house or premises for years to come.
Just as at home in a patio or lounge as they are in the kitchen or bathroom, limestone sealing will keep your beautiful limestone tiles durable, resilient and always stylish.
Limestone sealing guards against damage and discolouration caused by water, chemicals and natural wear and weathering.
We highly recommend getting limestone sealing done on all of your limestone areas. Commercial-grade sealants should be used to reduce excessive wear if acidic or chemical products are ever applied.
When cleaning your limestone tiles, special limestone-compatible products such as pH-neutral stone cleaners should be used.
Why do you need limestone sealing?
Limestone is a natural material that needs a little extra attention to ensure it has a long life when used as a building product.
Because it is chemically composed, external chemical and acid products can damage or destroy limestone. It is a soft and extremely porous material, so limestone sealing essentially fills in those pores and protects against the acids and chemicals that can eat away at it.
Limestone sealing will also guard against discolouration and stains caused by spilled food and chemicals.
When should you get limestone sealing?
We recommend getting your limestone cleaned and sealed regularly, to help prevent dust and dirt build up, discolouration and corrosion of the rock.
