I Was Told to Use White Vinegar to Clean My New Limestone
by Glen Tappe
I was told to use white vinegar to clean my new limestone tile before I sealed it. Now it looks like someone spilled something or splashed a liquid all over the surface.
It appears that the vinegar etched the tile.
How do I resurface the tile to make the surface appear uniform?
I don't think you can fix the problem by yourself unless you have a floor machine. Your best bet would be to call a stone restoration professional in your area and have them come look at it.
If it didn't have a polished finish, it can be honed with a honing powder to give the floor a uniform honed look. This would be the most economical way to fix your problem.
If it did have a polished finish, it may need to be diamond polished, which can be a little expensive.
This is why it's a good idea to test whatever cleaner you're going to use in an inconspicuous area before putting it on the entire floor.
This may be an inconvenience and cost a little money to be fixed, but it's not the end of your limestone floor.
I hope you find a good company to help you out with this floor.
