Natural Stone is by far the most durable option for your kitchen or bathroom. But to clean and maintain its natural beauty and the polished finish of the stone you want to use the right products. Here are some brief "Do and Don't" tips on caring for your stone.


The "Don't" list is comprised of harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that could take away the polish or seal on the stone, and if used frequently, damage the stone itself. The "Do" list are precautionary things to consider when cleaning but there are more ways to care for your stone.


Here at Northeast we recommend using Stone Essentials cleaning products for your home. They are a fantastic company that has designed cleaning products down to a molecular level to work with natural stone. As a member of the Marble Institute of America they are a name that can be trusted!
