News & Information

Natural stone surfaces provide beauty, elegance, and durability when properly installed in your home or office. These surfaces can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance, but even a material such as natural stone can be subject to etching from common household tasks:

  • A slight orange juice spill while your child prepares breakfast that goes unnoticed…are your children perfect cleaners when you’re not around?
  • Spilled wine on the counter or floor during a cocktail party…can you trust that every guest has perfect cleaning manners while you play host/hostess?
  • Hard water stains from an aggressive sink hose or bathroom faucet…will everyone using your facilities dry your surface ASAP?

Sealing is Not Enough to Prevent Etching

While stone sealers will work hard to protect your stone, they are still susceptible to acidic substances in everyday household items. An unattended spill of coffee, wine, soda, or orange juice can eat away at the surface and cause etching. It is important to note that etching is not a stain that can be easily wiped away. Etching refers to the dull spots left behind on natural stone that will mar your beautiful finish.

In addition to acidic substances, items such as toothpaste, lotion, or even household cleaning products can cause etching. Having to constantly remember the potential dangers these seemingly harmless items pose to etching your surface can be a frustrating endeavor.  You want to protect your investment for years to come, so enlisting the best defense from etching should be high on your list of safeguards.
