Mosaic tiles in my laundry room, tips for aftercare and maintenance.

We just purchased a home in Ottawa and have upgraded everything in our laundry room including the flooring, which is now a mosaic limestone pattern. Seeing as the laundry room is one of the most used rooms in the house and spills and the like tend to occur, is there anything that can be done to ensure cleanliness of the flooring? Any general maintenance tips?

You want to pick up any spills as soon as they happen because limestone is a very porous material and the last thing you want is staining due to detergents and fabric softeners.  Make sure that your limestone is very well sealed, and do this regularly.  Don’t use commercial floor cleansers or anything acidic because you’ll etch your limestone.  And especially NO water and vinegar; best use warm water and a mild detergent and then a proper natural stone cleanser once a week. We, at Interstone Marble and Granite, sell and recommend Fila brand cleansers and sealers.  We carry a large selection of their products.
