STONEDOCTORS QUESTION OF THE MONTH – CLEANING GRANITE FIREPLACE

ADVICE ON HOW TO CLEAN A GRANITE FIREPLACE

 

This month we would like to dedicate our blog to what in many  houses is a focal point of their living room or kitchen – fireplaces. A beautiful fireplace place can completely transform a room. If have ever arrived at a hotel or a country pub, especially during cold winter days, you’d know how a cozy fireplace can draw you in and leave you with happy memories of having a good time with a nice drink by the fireplace.

Some loving attention and regular maintenance will keep your fireplace looking its best and ensure you have a steady supply of happy memories for many years to come.

QUESTION:

I am trying to clean my granite fireplace wall could you recommend a product, also there are white powdery residues on the black grouting ..do you know what this is. It is backing on to an outside wall.

ANSWER:

The white powder sounds like grout residue / efflorescence this can be
removed with our “Cement&Grout Residue Remover” cleaner. I would recommend that you once
clean and dry that you seal your grout lines with our “Tile Tidy” which we
have in black to re-colour and seal your grout lines and stop this white
residue from coming back.
Then if you wish for ease of ongoing maintenance you could also seal your
granite using our invisible ” Dry Treat Stain Proof” sealer or if you prefer to enhance
the colour use our “Dry Treat Intensifia” which is also a sealer.

Best regards
