How should I care for my natural stone floors?

First, Invest in Quality Cleaning Tools. A cleaning chore—any cleaning chore—is never a matter of a cleaning product only. The implements—cleaning rag, paper towel, scrubbing pad, squeegee, etc.—are important considerations as well. A good quality mop and the proper mopping bucket are critical to obtaining the best results when mopping your highly polished stone or porcelain floor. We found that sponge mops are not the best choice for highly polished stone floors. A better choice would be a good sized, closed-loop cotton string mop. However, the very best are micro-fiber mops. Whichever type you use, it is always a good idea to have a couple, so that when one is dirty, all you have to do is throw it into the washing machine and use another one in the meantime.

The mop bucket is very important too. The MopWringer® bucket is a masterpiece of ingenuity in its own, and will allow you to clean large floors with little water, while constantly using a clean solution.
