Limestone Cleaning & Sealing: Lueders, Austin Stone Tile

Cleaning and sealing limestone flooring and outdoor patios is essential to preserve and protect the beauty of the stone. One of the most common sedimentary rocks on earth, limestone is made from calcite, aragonite, and other grains. These “grains” contain the remains of shells of ancient marine organisms, making limestone unique.

What is limestone used for?

Limestone is a popular building materials, and is commonly used for driveways, walkways, pathways, countertops, floors, patios, and pool and deck landings. While this ancient stone type has been used for centuries for a variety of different purposes, and will certainly withstand the test of time when used on homeowners’ properties, the stone is still susceptible to dust, dirt, grime, moisture, and deterioration.

What ruins limestone?

Limestone is a soft and porous stone. One of the most popular types of limestone is marble, used for indoor flooring and countertops more than other limestone types. As such, nearly anything can harm unsealed limestone, including both natural and unnatural elements and chemicals. Limestone cleaning must be performed carefully so that the stone is not damaged in the process. Limestone that is used around moisture – such as a pool deck or pond walkway – is especially vulnerable. Additionally, if anything acidic is spilled on limestone, even something as seemingly innocuous as tomato juice, the limestone can absorb the moisture and acid, and deterioration can occur. Additionally, patio furniture can scratch limestone, causing it to wear faster than it normally would.

How to Clean Limestone & Lueders Limestone

If your limestone is unsealed, cleaning it can be a headache – any harsh chemicals, including bleach, vinegar, alkaline, or other scouring or abrasive powders can destroy limestone. Additionally, using harsh scrub brushes or high-pressure cleaners can also destroy limestone. If your limestone is sealed, however, cleaning is simple – frequent sweeping, and an occasional wash with a soft cloth and soap and water can help to keep your limestone in tip-top shape for years to come. Limestone sealing with a quality stone sealant like one of our TSSPRO varieties can increase the longevity of your stone and block out dangerous moisture, mold, and calcification. Once sealed, cleaning limestone with regular soap and water and a soft cloth is a breeze!

Should I get my limestone sealed?

Regardless of whether the limestone on your property is outside or inside, a countertop or a pool patio, getting your limestone sealed is essential to maintaining its long life. Because limestone is so porous, if it is not sealed, it will absorb moisture, and it will deteriorate quickly, leading to expensive replacement costs. To save yourself time, money, and stress, getting limestone sealed immediately is a must.

Because the limestone will absorb a sealant, its slip-resistance and beautiful finish will not be affected, maintaining the natural look of the stone that you fell in love with. The natural finish sealant for limestone comes with a 4 year guarantee and the enhanced sheen finish comes with a 3 year written guarantee. If for any reason the sealant on your limestone needs attention, we’ll come out to your home and re-seal it one time.
