Do your stone floors need to be sealed?

One question that often arises when it comes to stone flooring is whether or not it needs to be sealed. The answer depends on the type of stone you choose and the level of protection you desire for your floors.

The Case for Sealing

Sealing your stone floors can provide an extra layer of protection against stains, spills, and daily wear and tear. This is especially important for porous stones such as marble, limestone, and travertine, which are prone to absorbing liquids and oils. By applying a high-quality sealer, you can help prevent damage and prolong the life of your floors.

The Benefits of Sealing

  • Stain resistance: Sealing creates a barrier that repels liquid substances, making it easier to clean up spills before they can penetrate the stone.
  • Enhanced durability: Sealing strengthens the surface of the stone, reducing the risk of scratches, chips, and other forms of damage.
  • Longevity: Properly sealed stone floors are more resistant to fading and discoloration, helping them maintain their beauty for years to come.

When to Seal Your Stone Floors

We recommend sealing your stone floors shortly after installation and then resealing them periodically to maintain optimal protection. The frequency of resealing will depend on factors such as foot traffic, exposure to moisture, and the type of sealer used. Our team at Sharon and Son's Flooring & Cabinets can help you determine the best sealing schedule for your specific needs.

The Natural Beauty of Unsealed Stone

While sealing offers valuable protection for your stone floors, some homeowners prefer the natural beauty of unsealed stone. Unsealed stone has a more organic look and feel, with variations in texture and color that enhance its visual appeal. However, it's essential to understand that unsealed stone is more susceptible to staining and damage, so regular maintenance and care are crucial.
