If you have a limestone tiled floor, you know that it absorbs liquids very quickly.
Although sealing limestone won't completely stop liquids from absorbing into it, it will give you more time to wipe up spills.
The porosity of limestone will differ greatly from a polished finish to a honed finish.
Honed finishes will be much more porous than the polished finishes.
Our recommendation would be sealing limestone when it's first installed and sealing after a deep cleaning every year, depending on your foot traffic.
If you don't have a lot of traffic moving through your limestone floors, you can wait two or even three years.
One thing about limestone you should be aware of is that limestone is a calcium based stone like marble and is susceptible to etching by any acidic liquid.
Sealing limestone will not protect it from etching, so caution should be used with any acidic liquid (e.g. orange juice).
How to Seal LimestoneSealing limestone is not very complicated and if you take your time and clean it properly before you seal it, you shouldn't have any problems.
Try this sealer for all your stone surfaces, including limestone tile and slabs.

Maintaining limestone can be easy, as long as you know what cleaners are best and how to use them.
When cleaning limestone we recommend using a neutral floor cleaner. Neutral meaning neautral pH or pH of 7 on the pH scale.
For daily cleaning, use a microfiber mop, with warm water and your neutral cleaner. Mop your floor and dry with dry mop.
When it comes to cleaning and sealing limestone or cleaning ceramic tile and grout, we strive to help educate our customers on the best protection they can have, helping them save time and money in costly restoration costs down the road.
