Natural stone including granite, bluestone, sandstone, onyx and acid sensitive marble, limestone and travertine have all a different make-up and needs to be addressed and cared for with uniqueness and never looked as all being the same.
It is crucial to understand the true functions of these sealers as well as their limitations. In general, all premium and non film forming stone penetrating sealers available in the market today will have absolutely no influence on the surface sensitivity towards acidity namely when applied over marble, limestone and travertine. These stone types will remain vunerable to acid etching due to the natural reaction of calcium found in these substrates with food acids associated with a cooking and eating environment while acid containing personal care product in relation to bathroom vanity surfaces.

I must clearly state the benefits of sealing. They are:
1. To make the surface impervious to liquids either water or oil base thus preventing the substrate from getting stained through absorption. 2. To hugely assist in the ease of cleaning them when the need arises especially where maintenance has been hugely neglected. 3. In maintaining the natural colours of the substrate in the long term.
Prior to sealing, surfaces will be correctly cleaned and prepared 24-48 hours prior to sealing to allow the complete drying processes to occur. With indepth knowledge of the various stone types and their finishes, this allows us to best match the most suited stone penetrating sealer to go with and ultimately to provide optimal surface protection. Our service field technicians will then advise you on the correct maintenance products to use and ongoing care procedures. This will see your stone surfaces looking their best in years ahead.
We recommend that Stone Doctor Australia be contacted prior to purchasing your stone slabs so that we can advice you on material suitability, to avoid potential installation disasters, to understand maintenance requirements and lastly information on surface restoration apart from just having the surfaces professionally sealed.
