Cleaning Granite Floors – Periodic Heavy Duty Cleaning – Residential

No matter how well you clean your floors including a granite floor, there will eventually come a time when you need to perform a periodic heavy or deep cleaning. The reason why this deep cleaning procedure needs to be performed is that daily or routine cleaning still can leave small amounts of residual soil on the floor when you are cleaning granite floors. Over time this soil begins to build up and requires a stronger cleaning procedure to be completed to remove the soil and as a result of deep cleaning granite floors restore the granite floors appearance as new again.

 

Deep cleaning granite floors will need to be performed periodically in a residential home whether the granite floor is sealed or unsealed. The only difference is if the homeowner has applied a floor finish to seal the granite floors, you would then deep cleaning granite floors the same way you would deep clean any floor that has a floor finish top coating on it. Please see the following link for deep cleaning procedures if your granite floor is top coated with a floor finish (Clean Tile Floors – Floor Finish (Wax) Deep Scrub & Recoat Procedures).

 

The goal of this article is to provide our residential homeowners visitors with the procedures and tools for deep cleaning granite floors that have been unsealed.
