At Stonearth, we build real pieces of furniture the proper way. We lacquer the wood and seal the stone before despatch, so it doesn’t need too much specialist care. With simple care and maintenance it will be a source of pride for many years to come. It is worth noting a few basic precautions that will help keep your stone and wood looking good…

As with all bathroom products it is important that your bathroom is well ventilated and any excessive water spillage is wiped away. For everyday cleaning use a damp soft cloth and mild soaps. Never use abrasive, acidic, bleach or solvent based cleaners.

 

Natural Stone

 

We choose natural stone blocks from select quarries around the world: quarries that can demonstrate consistent high quality. Occurrence of mineral inclusions is a natural expression of the unique material which makes each and every piece unique.

Correctly sealing the stone surfaces is key to keeping continued maintenance to a minimum. All natural stone products are to some extent porous and they will require some care.  Every natural stone item provided by Stonearth is pre-sealed with multiple coats of Lithofin MN Stain-stop impregnator to help increase water and oil resistance.

The durability depends on the care products used. Heavily used surfaces should be retreated (with MN Stain-stop) once a year. Abrasive, acidic and other chemical substance (which may be found within household detergents and other bathroom products or cosmetics) should be minimised as they can remove the surface sealant or in extreme cases damage the stone.

Advice from Lithofin:  Remove stain causing materials from impregnated surfaces immediately. For regular maintenance of counter tops we recommend Lithofin MN Easy-Clean.

Lithofin is a leading brand for the cleaning and maintenance of natural materials. We highly recommend that natural stone surfaces are maintained using the Lithofin MN  range of products, and in accordance with the guidance given. A list of Lithofin’s technical information sheets can be found here:

Lithofin MN Stain-Stop

Extracts from Technical Information Sheet

 

 
Properties
 
Lithofin MN Stain-Stop penetrates into the surface and coats the capillaries with an extremely thin, invisible film. Oil, grease and water are not absorbed by the surface, but remain on the surface (12 to 36 hours on polished marble and limestone, up to 48 hours on granite and gneiss). During this time, oil can easily be removed without leaving stains. The effectiveness depends on the amount of product absorbed by the surface. The appearance of the natural stone is not affected. Some stones may become slightly darker in colour. The water absorbency of the stone is greatly reduced; the water permeability is only slightly affected. The product is UV-resistant and does not yellow.

Durability
 

The durability depends on the care products used. Strong degreasing or layer forming products are unsuitable to use. Heavily used surfaces such as kitchen counters should be retreated once a year.

Advice: Remove stain causing materials from impregnated surfaces immediately. For regular maintenance of natural stone counter tops we recommend Lithofin MN Easy-Clean.
