Do not touch non-neutral items, all stone materials are afraid of acid and alkali. For example: acid often causes oxidation of pyrite minerals in granite to produce yellowing. Acid will decompose calcium carbonate contained in marble, causing the surface to be eroded, and alkali will also attack feldspar and quartz silicification in granite. The grain boundary of the material crystal causes the phenomenon of grain peeling. Therefore, non-neutral items are the main reason for destroying the stone mirror surface.


Do not wax at will. There are many kinds of wax on the market, including water-based wax, stearic acid wax, oily wax, acrylic wax and so on. These waxes basically contain acid-base substances. Not only will it block the pores of the stone's breathing, but it will also be stained with dust to form wax, which will cause the stone surface to yellow. However, if pedestrians and places with a high frequency of goods circulation must use wax, they must consult a professional maintenance company to guide the use and maintenance of wax.


Do not mess with non-neutral cleaners. In order to obtain fast cleaning effect, general cleaning agents contain acid and alkali. Therefore, if the cleaning agent with unknown ingredients is used for a long time, the surface gloss of the stone will be completely lost, and the residue of non-neutral agents will also be the main cause of stone lesions in the future. .


Do not cover the carpet or sundries for a long time. In order to keep the stone breathing smoothly, long-term coverage of carpets and debris on the stone surface should be avoided, otherwise the moisture under the stone cannot evaporate through the pores of the stone. The stone will cause annoying stone lesions due to excessive moisture and increased water content. If you must lay a carpet and pile up debris, don't forget to change it often.


Keep it clean. Whether it is hard granite (hardness HRs88-111 ± 4-7) or softer marble (hardness HRs46-77 ± 3-5), it is not resistant to long-term dusting of aeolian sand and soil particles. Therefore, from time to time, the dust collector and electrostatic mop should be used to thoroughly do the dust removal and cleaning work. It is best to place a dusting pad at the entrance of the commercial space. It is best to change the slippers after entering the home where the sand filter shoes are worn to reduce the chance that the sand dust will wear the stone surface.


Regular maintenance and gloss are required. Relying on dust removal and cleaning can not keep the beautiful luster of the stone. Therefore, we must regularly invite professional companies to send people to perform maintenance and maintenance of gloss regeneration, such as: recrystallizing the marble surface using a crystallization solution, or regenerating the marble or granite surface using polishing powder, or using the polishing powder to make marble or flower Granite surface regenerates gloss, or uses breathable gloss protector. Keep your stone as new as ever.


Remove pollution immediately. All stones have natural pores. Pollution sources (oil, tea, coffee, cola, soy sauce, ink, etc.) can easily penetrate the inside of the stone along the pores, forming unpleasant stains, so be sure to choose good quality stones Special protective agent is applied on the stone to prevent the pollution source from contaminating the stone. It is important to know that all protective agents cannot completely prevent pollution for a long time, so once a pollution source is poured on the stone, it must be immediately clear to prevent it from penetrating into the stone pores.


Always keep it dry and ventilated. Stone is afraid of too much humidity. Water and gas will produce hydration, hydrolysis and carbonation of the stone, produce water spots, whitening, weathering, erosion, rust yellow and other lesions, destroying the stone. Therefore, stone installations should always be kept dry and ventilated.


Protective treatment should be applied regularly. In order to ensure the longevity of the stone and prevent the penetration of water and pollution sources, it must be treated regularly (depending on the type of stone and the quality of the protective agent, it is best to do this for 1--3 years).


The quality of the protective agent must pay special attention to. After the application, it must be able to maintain the breathability, waterproofness and stain resistance of the stone. Never use a protective agent from an unknown source, as not only will the protective effect not be achieved, but it will increase the trouble of stone maintenance.
