Sandstone Cleaning, Sealing & Maintenance

Welcome to XO2's top ranked professional sandstone cleaning, sealing and restoration products. Sandstone is a classic sedimentary rock composed largely of fine grains of quartz. It comes in a range of warm sandy shades from orange and reddish browns to grey greens and light pearl greys. Sandstone is very porous and stains easily when unsealed. It comes in a variety of finishes including honed, sawn, tumbled and sand blasted.

How To Clean Sandstone With C-A-T: CAT stands for Chemical, Agitation and Temperature. Choose the chemical that's suitable for your surface and soil. Select the right agitation method (eg. floor pad, brush, high pressure) and what temperature will you clean with (heat often cleans better)?

Recommended Products For The 4 Types Of Sandstone Maintenance

*Always test products first before use.

1. Initial - Cleaning newly laid floors... Use Bobby Dazzler (pH neutral) or Bonza. To remove grout haze and plaster dust use Crackerjack or Phos Power

2. Regular Maintenance - Use Bobby Dazzler (pH neutral). This is for everyday cleaning.

3. Periodic Cleaning - Use Bonza or Too Easy. Periodic cleaning may occur monthly, quarterly or yearly. 

4. Restorative / Salvage Cleaning - Use TKO or CrackerjackThis is when things have gotten a little out of hand and the surface needs a reset! If a coating needs to be removed use the compatible floor stripper. For difficult stains use Poultice Pro and for rust stains go with Rust Daddy.

Precautions: Avoid harsh chemicals and abrasive cleaners where possible. When using heavy chemicals neutralise with Bobby Dazzler afterwards to avoid fast re-soiling.

Sealing Sandstone Floors: XO2 highly recommends sealing sandstone floors and grout with Pro Seal Ultra, our invisible impregnating sandstone sealer. This penetrating sealer is not a coating that will sit on top of the surface and it will not change the look, colour, texture or slip resistance of the sandstone. Some facilities prefer to use a water based coating on top of indoor sandstone floors to protect them. We prefer the natural look of sandstone but our recommendation for sacrificial coatings on indoor sandstone is Tough Shield for a satin/lower gloss finish or as a base coat for top coats of Blockbuster for a high shine finish. It is important that no topical sealers are used in wet areas.
