Can You Clean and Seal Natural Stone?
Yes, you can clean and seal natural stone. Natural stone flakes off in layers and mortar joints can easily be broken. Your contractor should take caution in the process of cleaning your stone to minimize damage. Hardscape Cleaner, Organic Stain Remover and diluted bleach can be used to clean your stone. A very low pressure nozzle on a pressure washer can be used for cleaning. I suggest Techniseal IN (Invisible) Sealer for stone. It’s usually best to not alter the appearance of stone. The benefits to sealing stone are the same as sealing pavers.
