Your stone table top is an investment you want to protect and maintain. Here’s some easy tips on how to seal and protect your stone patio table top:
1. Clean regularly
Cleaning your stone table top with warm water and some mild detergent will help remove any dirt or grime that could damage your table.
2. Use a protecting sealer
Sealers provide an invisible barrier between your stone top and the outdoor elements, helping prevent your top from stains and marks.
3. Avoid harsh chemicals
Harsh chemicals can damage the sealer on your table and lead to staining.
4. Use coasters
Coasters help protect your table from water damage and stains
5. Don’t let spills dry out without cleaning
Spills can happen to anyone, just make sure to swipe the spill off as soon as possible. Leaving spills sit until dry will leave a stain or mark.
6. Protect from scratches
Use place mats or coasters under glasses and plates to avoid scratches.
7. Avoid acidic or citric substances directly onto your stone table top
Be careful with direct contact with lemon, wine, vinegar, etc. If you have a spill, make sure to clean it immediatly.
