To prevent stone damage, make sure you clean up any spills from your stone floor as soon as possible. Adding rugs and mats to areas of your floor where people often walk (such as entryway) can help reduce scratches and scuffs.
Never use an acidic cleaner like vinegar on your natural stone because the cleaner may seriously damage it. Instead, use a mixture of vegetable soap and water to mop down your floors. You also have the option of using a stone cleaner. Some experts say that only water is necessary to clean your natural stone if you mop it every day.
