SEALING STONE & TERRAZZO FLOORS

When to seal: Every 1-2 years
Product: Stone Spray-N-Seal®

Steps:

  • Surface should be dry for 6-12 hours before sealing.
  • Clean countertop surface using Marbamist or Clean EnCounters. For stone floors, clean with Marbalex. (It is safe to lightly clean the stone before sealing.)
  • Cover surrounding areas that are not intended to be sealed.
  • Liberally spray the entire surface until it is wet. (Outer edges may dry quicker.)
  • When surface begins to dry within 3-5 minutes, wet the surface again with the sealer. (This will allow the sealer to properly penetrate and cure.)
  • After 30 minutes, wipe off excess sealer from the surface with a clean and dry white terry cloth towel.
  • If excess dries on the surface, spray more sealer onto the surface and wipe off immediately with a clean dry terry cloth towel.


For large stone floors, excess can be buffed off with a clean white buffing pad or an all cloth bonnet pad.

Use the same above sealing procedure for:

  • Sealing kitchen countertops & bathroom vanities
  • Sealing stone walls
  • Sealing fireplace surrounds
  • Sealing flamed granite & tumbled marble surfaces
  • Sealing quarry tile & terra cotta
