How to Remove General Dirt From Internal Stone

Stone and tiles will become soiled and dirty from spillages and foot traffic in most internal areas, especially kitchens and dining rooms.

Mud and General Dirt Removal.

It is sensible to try water and a brush or nylon pad in most cases because you will often be successful.

1. In almost all cases of general dirt and mud stains and marks, PAL4 will work well.

  • Use PAL4 diluted 1:6 to 1:10 with water.
  • You will need to scrub gently with brushes, nylon pads. You will see our recommended tools and equipment on the Product Pages.
  • Allow a contact time of approximately 10 minutes. Scrub several times times during this period.
  • Keep the stone soaking wet with solution throughout the cleaning process. You will need to work in small areas and avoid hot dry weather in order to be able to keep the stone wet.
  • Be careful not to damage the stone by scrubbing too vigorously.
  • Rinse well.
  • We often find that using a wet vacuum cleaner (available at most builders tool hire shops) to remove dirty solution and rinsing water does a much better job than rinsing with a sponge or mop and bucket. This is because the machine draws the water up and out of the stone which takes the dirt (which is in suspension in the water) with it.
  • ALWAYS do small test areas first.
  • Results can be mixed but you will not damage your stone using this method.
  • Do not use any acidic cleaning products for removing general dirt because they will not work very well (if at all) and could seriously damage your stone). 

You will find further instructions for using PAL4 on the product page - please do read them.
