Limestone is a very delicate type of stone that can be easily damaged if not handled carefully. Limestone tiles are quite porous and prone to scratching, staining and fracturing. Being a natural stone, it also needs to breathe, which means instead of covering the stone by synthetic sealers or urethane, we offer the best solution to protect your limestone tiles with our highest quality impregnating penetrating sealer that will allow your natural stone to breathe and at the same time, provides it with the best protection against staining. All of our sealing products are water based, so you do not have to worry about toxic chemicals or any other hazardous materials others use in their cleaning and sealing products.

What is Limestone

Limestone is a sedimentary rock which is formed at the bottom of the ocean. It consists wholly or mainly of calcium carbonate. In its pure state it is white but it may be coloured by other materials. This calcite is sourced primarily from the shells and bones of marine organisms. The sediment that builds up preserves these organisms into fossils. Over millions of years the heat and pressure cause a chemical reaction which turns this sediment into limestone.

Limestone floor is actually quite porous and prone to scratching, staining and fracturing. It also needs to be allowed to breath, instead of being covered by synthetic sealers or urethane. We offer the right solution to protect your Limestone by using highly penetrating impregnating sealers in South Eastern Sydney.

The primary cause for polished stone floors becoming dull is walking on them. Prolonged foot traffic grinds and packs in dust, sand, and grit. Although the scratching that occurs is very fine, it eventually covers the majority of the surface and over time dulls the finish to the point where it loses its reflective properties. To make your stone surfaces smooth and reflective, we employ the use of high speed polishers.

Types of Limestone Tiles

South Eastern Sydney Polished Limestone tileMany older buildings in South Eastern Sydney have durable limestone flooring. This is the chalky porous type typical of most French and Spanish limestone. Etched by acids, including soft drinks. Absorbs oils and other liquids and is more easily stained than marble. Composed of Calcite and some Magnesium. Common colours are black, grey, white, yellow and brown. Has a smooth granular surface. Varies in hardness. Should be sealed with a penetrating sealer to prevent staining and reduce soiling. Should only be cleaned with neutral pH detergents. Because it is soft, it should never be cleaned at pressures above 800 PSI and then only if the grout is in good condition.

Professional regular maintenance will be required to maintain its honed or polished appearance. Limestone looks best with a honed or low/medium sheen appearance however many people insist on a high shine finish. Limestone will never have the gloss of marble or granite. Some low calcite limestone can be extremely difficult to polish and therefore vitrification would be required. Vitrification however can give the stone an unnatural plastic appearance if repeated too often.

  • Pros
  • Durable
  • Easy to clean
  • It is less expensive than marble and granite
  • It is moisture-resistant
  • Cons
  • It feels cold and hard under-foot
  • It requires sealing
  • t reacts to acid

Polished Limestone South Eastern SydneyAll limestone is highly porous - a tablespoon of water on a limestone surface will be absorbed in seconds, although it does vary in porosity from piece to piece. Porosity is also affected by its finish - highly polished limestone is a little harder to penetrate than limestone with a honed (matt) finish.

Due to its high porosity it is particularly important for limestone to be sealed with a high quality impregnating sealer which will not affect its slip resistance or look. Limestone is used both outdoors and indoors, and our impregnating sealers will seal limestone equally well in either.

Limestone can be difficult to maintain if a proper maintenance cycle is not put in place from the point of installation. As it is usually not polished, the problem of scratching is not as big an issue as it is with marble, however if proper barrier matting is not introduced even a honed surface will lose its attractiveness. The most important factor to consider with the maintenance of limestone is the possibility of staining.

Limestone's calcite composition makes it susceptible to acid attack from spilt food and drink. Its high porosity can also mean oil will permeate the surface and leave staining if it is not properly sealed with a penetrating / impregnating sealer.

Pre-Sealing Preparation

  1. Any surface to be sealed should be clean and looking just as you want it before it is sealed - it may be impossible to remove stains after sealing without having to strip the sealer again. Acidic cleaners should not be used on limestone as it will damage it.
  2. Limestone must have no other coating such as wax or a topical sealer before it's sealed, so any such coating must be removed before sealing.
  3. Floor must be thoroughly dry before applying any sealer.

Our Limestone Floor Restoration service in South Eastern Sydney will bring back your limestone tiles & grout to its best possible condition, and protect them for years to come.

Limestone Protection from Acid Etching

It is very difficult to seal limestone against acid attack. Limestone and other calcite based stone such as marble and travertine are prone to acid etching. Limestone is immediately 'etched' (eaten / corroded) by any acidic material on contact - including lemon juice, cola, wine and champagne. For this reason the honed (matt) look is popular, as it doesn't show the matt etch marks as much as polished limestone. In any case, acidic substances should be cleaned up as soon as possible, and limestone should not be used outdoors in areas where there is acid rain.

Frequently Asked Questions


When your limestone tiles start to exhibit a dull or matte appearance even after regular cleaning, it is a clear sign that they are due for professional restoration. This loss of luster can occur over time as the protective sealant wears off. Additionally, if you notice that your limestone tiles are becoming more susceptible to staining, it indicates that the previous sealer has deteriorated and immediate resealing is necessary to prevent permanent stains. By addressing these signs promptly, you can restore the natural beauty of your limestone floors and protect them from further damage.

Tile Cleaning places great importance on the safety of your family throughout the cleaning process and guarantees the use of non-toxic finishing agents. Our commitment to safety is rooted in protecting your loved ones by avoiding any potentially harmful substances or ingredients. When selecting cleaning products, Tile Cleaning exercises utmost care to exclude any ingredients that could pose health risks. This approach not only helps preserve the condition of your stone tiles but also exemplifies our dedication to prioritizing the overall health and safety of your household.

To maintain the appearance and keep your limestone tiles looking new, Tile Cleaning recommends a regular cleaning routine. Clean the tiles each week using a damp microfiber cloth and a mild detergent to remove dirt and grime from the surface. It is important to avoid using strong detergents containing acids or alkalis, as they can potentially damage the sealer. Instead, opt for mild detergents and pH-neutral substances for safe and effective cleaning. In addition to regular cleaning, the best protection for your limestone tiles is to have them sealed with one of Tile Cleaning highest quality sealers. Sealing provides an extra layer of protection against staining and helps preserve the beauty of your limestone tiles for longer.

If the stain on your limestone floor is relatively new and has not deeply set in, there is a good chance that Tile Cleaning will be able to remove it. However, it is important to note that complete removal of the stain cannot be guaranteed. The aim is to clean the stained area and restore it to the best possible condition. The success of stain removal also depends on whether the limestone tiles have been previously sealed or not. Some stains may have penetrated the natural stone and settled below the surface, making them more challenging to clean. To prevent future staining, it is recommended to have Tile Cleaning perform a thorough process of stripping, cleaning, and sealing your limestone floor. This comprehensive approach ensures that your limestone floors are protected from future stains and can be maintained in optimal condition.

Tile Cleaning follows a pricing structure that is based on per square meter for each separate room when it comes to cleaning limestone tiles. You can find a price list on the Tile Cleaning website, which you can review for your reference. Prior to commencing the work, Tile Cleaning will measure each room individually, discuss the scope of the work to be carried out, and confirm all costs with you. This ensures transparency and allows you to have a clear understanding of the pricing involved before any cleaning work begins.

To measure the size of a limestone area, it is recommended to measure each room separately. Begin by measuring the width and length of the room. Multiply the width by the length to calculate the total square meterage. For example, if a room is 3 meters long and 2 meters wide, the calculation would be 3 meters * 2 meters = 6 square meters in total. By measuring each room individually and using the width * length method, you can accurately determine the size of the limestone area you wish to assess or have cleaned.

Tile Cleaning provides assistance with moving furniture during the floor sealing process. Their team of dedicated technicians is available to help with the relocation of furniture items that can be reasonably managed by one person, such as those with wheels or lightweight furniture like tables and chairs. However, it is important to keep in mind that while Tile Cleaning takes precautions to protect your belongings, they cannot be held responsible for any damages that may occur during the furniture moving process. To ensure the safety of valuable or fragile items, it is recommended to either relocate them to a secure area or properly secure them before the technicians arrive. By taking these necessary precautions, you can help ensure the safety of your furniture and minimize the risk of potential damage while the floor sealing process is being carried out.

To prepare your limestone floors for cleaning, it is recommended to move all furniture and items off the floor. This allows the cleaning process to be carried out efficiently and effectively. By removing furniture and items from the limestone floor, you create a clear space for the cleaning team to work on, ensuring that the entire surface can be properly cleaned. This preparation step helps to facilitate the cleaning process and ensures that your limestone floors receive the attention they need.

The frequency of sealing limestone floors depends on factors such as the type of sealer used and the level of foot traffic they experience. Australia's Deepshield™ range of deep impregnating water-based sealers, including Deepshield™ Gold with a potential lifespan of up to 15 years, offers long-term benefits. On the other hand, topical sealers typically last around 3 years. However, if your limestone floors endure high foot traffic or are exposed to severe weather conditions (in the case of outdoor tiles), the lifespan of the sealer may be shorter. The condition of the tiles is also a factor to consider. Once you notice patchy areas and easy staining, it is an indication that resealing is necessary. For further assistance and inquiries, feel free to contact us, and our team will be happy to assist you.

When Tile Cleaning arrive to reseal your limestone floors, you can expect a professional team that will guide you through the entire process, ensuring transparency and clarity. The process begins with the removal of any previous sealer, if applied, followed by a thorough cleaning and neutralization of the limestone to eliminate dust, residue, and any other substances that could affect the effectiveness of the new sealer. Once the limestone floor is dry, a new sealer will be carefully applied and allowed to set. This resealing process will not only rejuvenate the appearance of your limestone floor, making it look new again, but it will also provide protection and make maintenance easier in the long run. Rest assured that Tile Cleaning follows a systematic approach to deliver quality results and ensure your satisfaction.

The best time to seal your limestone floors is right after installation to provide immediate protection against accidental staining or damage. As for determining if your limestone floors currently require sealing, keep an eye out for patchy areas on the floor where the sealant may have worn off. Additionally, if you notice that your limestone tiles are becoming more susceptible to staining, it indicates that the existing sealer has deteriorated and resealing is necessary to prevent permanent stains. By monitoring the condition of your limestone floors and being attentive to any changes in their appearance and stain resistance, you can determine when it is the right time to seal them.
