Stone Soap Impregnating Sealers

Delve into the differences between stone soap impregnating sealers and dedicated alcohol or solvent-based impregnating sealers.  his post provides valuable insights for understanding the characteristics and applications of these sealers.

 

What is Stone Soap

Stone soap is typically made of high-quality care agents, auxiliary agents, and scents. It is free of phosphates, lyes, waxes, and polymers, and is biodegradable. It is also 100% organic and safe for everyday cleaning and maintenance, especially formulated for use on marble, limestone, and travertine. When used to seal marble, terrazzo, and limestone, it is usually mixed with water. 

How Good is Stone Soap Sealer?

While stone soap impregnating sealer can help keep your floors clean and looking good, it does not offer the same level of protection as a dedicated alcohol or solvent-based sealer, which tend to be four times the price. 

What Alternative Sealers Are There?

Impregnating sealers such as Dry Treat are used directly on the stone, without diluting it. They consist of smaller particles which soak into the stone and become solid when it cures. Because these tiny particles are deeper in the stone, they don’t wear off through general traffic. They can however be dissolved with strong cleaning chemicals and food spillages such as hot foods and acidic spillages.

Stone soap is primarily used for cleaning and maintaining stone floors which have already been sealed by impregnating sealers. These sealers are water-based. A 5L bottle is usually concentrated and should be diluted before application. Stone soap particles, which are larger, do not soak very deep into the stone and are therefore worn off by general foot traffic. 

It is recommended that higher quality impregnating sealers be used after a deep sanding service. As a general guideline, for high-traffic areas or floors exposed to more wear, sanding may be needed every 5 to 10 years to refresh the surface and remove scratches, stains, or other damage. However, less frequented areas or spaces with minimal wear might require sanding less often, perhaps every 10 to 15 years or even longer.
