Care advice for limestone and marble
Once the floor has been laid and joined, clean the surface thoroughly with Fila PS87 deep cleaner. Let the stone dry and then impregnate with Fila MP90 Eco Xtreme. In particularly exposed areas, such as the shower area, we recommend impregnating our limestones once a year.
Stone impregnation is an effective method to use to protect the natural stone from stains. Some stone impregnations can change the appearance of the stone. It usually gets a little darker. We therefore recommend Fila MP90 Eco Xtreme, an impregnation adapted to natural stone which means that the stone is protected and at the same time retains its original appearance.
Fila MP90 Eco Xtreme is the best ecological protection against natural stone with honed, brushed or matt surface treatment. The product is waterproof, protects and facilitates cleaning. Note that the tiles must be completely dry when the impregnation is applied. Be sure to follow the product instructions.
When cleaning the stone, we recommend Fila Cleaner, a concentrated all-purpose cleaner that gently cleans all floor and wall tiles. Good for both your stone and the environment. Fila Cleaner can be purchased here!
Oil, makeup and similar stains
Grease and oil stains should be washed away as soon as possible to prevent it from penetrating the stone. Deep cleaner Fila PS87 is used for the tough stains and really soiled surfaces. This is also adapted to natural stone.
Rubber, glue, wax and markers
Remove as much as possible mechanically, by carefully scraping with a knife or similar. Then wash off the stain with solvent (thinner, white spirit or turpentine). Finally, clean the stone with Fila Cleaner.
Scratches and damage from acids
A scratch on the floor does not need to be fixed. It wears out over time and adds a beautiful patina to the stone. Acids from soap and shampoo residues or from food and drink can cause burns to the stone. If damage occurs, you can carefully sand the damage by hand with a fine diamond sanding block, steel wool or nylon cloth.
