How to seal stone in 3 easy steps
1. Test this stone sealer first
As with any new product, testing this sealer will allow you to check for any colour changes. It will also give you an idea of how it will look and how long the stone takes to dry – that way, there’s a better chance you will be happy with the final finish.
2. Prepare and clean your surface
Using a pH-neutral cleaner before sealing a surface is essential to do and plays a big part in the protection process. Not only will it remove any surface dirt, but it will also clean deeper down and ensure the open pores of the stone are free from other contaminants. Surprisingly, this straightforward action is often missed out, but the consequences can lead to inadequate sealing and, as a result – stains. Our pH-neutral cleaner will ensure your surfaces are ready to go – simply dilute CLEANER PRO at 1:30.
3. Apply this stone sealer with a brush or fleece pad
Once your surface is ready to go, let the application begin! You will need a brush or a fleece pad. For matt finishes, apply this product in an even manner, taking care not to let it splash or run, and dab any excess product with a clean cloth before letting it dry. Highly absorbent materials may need two coats, so be sure to leave 20 minutes in between each one.
For polished surfaces, simply follow the same method above, but before it dries, gently rub the surface with a wet microfibre cloth to aid the process. After the sealing process is done, floors should be ready to walk on after just 2 hours. Be aware, however, that full protection from oil takes around 24 hours and the same to be water-proof.
