- LITHOFIN MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS FOR OUTDOOR NATURAL STONE FLOORING:

For natural stone that is laid outdoors, there are no specific extra maintenance requirements apart from the normal maintenance. You can always opt to do a thorough cleaning once a year with Lithofin MN Outdoor Cleaner. For somewhat more stain-sensitive materials, it can be useful to preventively treat the flooring with Lithofin Stain-Stop W.

In this way, you are well-protected against any grease spots (e.g. summer BBQs), given that the spot will be able to penetrate much less deeply into the stone.

Before using Lithofin products, always consult the recommendations on the product packaging. These products are also available in our showroom, or can be ordered via Contact.

- LITHOFIN MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS FOR KITCHEN COUNTERTOPS IN NATURAL STONE:

For kitchen countertops, it is recommended to impregnate it with Lithofin MN Stain-Stop immediately before commissioning. Lithofin MN Easy-Clean can be used for daily use and maintenance. Regular maintenance is crucially important here. It is strongly recommended to repeat the impregnation each year.

- LITHOFIN MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS FOR INDOOR FLOORING:

We recommend using Lithofin MN Power-Clean for this. This product must be thoroughly scrubbed in, using a Lithofin scouring pad with handle. This Power-Clean may already be used as of 1 week after installation.

So long as the floor has not yet been impregnated, it may be cleaned with water and Lithofin MN Wash & Clean. For this phase in the cleaning it is not recommended to use a nourishing soap, since this fixes the dirt in the stone.

If the floor is laid in a mortar bed, after several months of drying out the floor can be impregnated with Lithofin Stain-Stop W. This product may NOT be used for polished limestone! Polished limestone such as marble can be impregnated with Lithofin MN Stain-Stop. If the floor was adhesively bonded, it may already be impregnated with Lithofin Stain-Stop W after 2 weeks of drying out. After impregnation, the floor can be further maintained with Lithofin MN Wash & Clean. If after a time you´d like to see some extra gloss on your floor, you can always use the product Lithofin MN Care-Seal, which lends extra brilliance to your natural stone floor. 

Sandstones:

With sandstones, we recommend repeating the impregnation with Lithofin Stain-Stop W several times (at long intervals) for an optimal effect.

Noire de Provence:

For this slate it is recommended to use Lithofin Stain-Stop Plus, which penetrates into the stone, intensifies the dark colour and at the same time ensures that the stone retains its mat effect. Rub in the product uniformly in a thin layer, tile by tile. After this impregnation, regular maintenance may be done with Lithofin MN Wash & Clean.

Before using Lithofin products, always consult the recommendations on the product packaging!  These products are also available in our showroom, or can be ordered via Contact.

- LITHOFIN MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS FOR BATHROOM AND SHOWER SPACES:

First, clean the floor area in a bathroom space with Lithofin MN Power-Clean before impregnating with Lithofin MN Stain-Stop. Apply this spot mixture with a cloth and allow to dry for a bit. Then the weekly maintenance can be done with Lithofin MN Wash & Clean. 

Before impregnating a shower space or walls in a bathroom, clean with Lithofin MN Easy-Clean. Then carefully apply Lithofin MN Stain-Stop with a cloth and let it dry out for a bit. It is strongly recommended to repeat this impregnation in a shower space with Lithofin MN Stain-Stop every 6 months.
