Natural stone flooring comes in a variety of designs, finishes, and layouts. Because natural stone is so distinctive and delicate, it is important that it is maintained properly. Store bought natural stone cleaners tend to work well. However, they contain many harmful chemicals that can cause skin rashes, respiratory issues, and other health effects. Instead of risking these health ailments, try these two organic methods to clean Natural Stone Flooring in Maple Grove MN.
Baking Soda and Eucalyptus Oil
Baking soda is a wonderful all purpose cleaner. It can be used on any type of surface without causing damage to the surface. Eucalyptus is a germ killer and disinfectant. In order to make a baking soda and eucalyptus soft scrub for stone flooring, add 20 drops of eucalyptus essential oil into a spray bottle. After the oil has been added, fill the remainder of the bottle up with half distilled water and approximately two teaspoons of baking soda. Screw the lid back on the bottle and shake it to thoroughly to distribute the ingredients. From there, simply spray dirty areas of the stone flooring with the mixture. Rub in the soft scrub with a toothbrush or sponge. This will remove any grime and dirt. To rinse the flooring off, use a wet washcloth. Putting these two all natural ingredients together will leave you with clean, sparkling, and sanitized stone flooring.
Dish Detergent and Water
For a quick and easy way to clean stone flooring, use an all natural mild dish soap and warm water. Fill up a mop bucket with warm water and add approximately four tablespoons of a mild dish soap into the water. From there, use a mop or rag to dip into the soapy bucket. Next, run over the dirty spots with the wet mop or rag. Make sure to always rinse off the floor once it has been cleaned with any kind of soap. Not rinsing will cause streaks and will leave a film on the floor. Always allow Natural Stone Flooring in Maple Grove MN to air dry.
