The granite patio of this Kessel-Lo Residence in Belgium required some work. The neglected surface had endured repeated staining. To bring it back to life, the grime and dirt would need to be removed. The patio also needed to be sealed to protect against future damage and help keep the surface cleaner for longer.
- Removal of existing stains
- Treated surface must become easier to clean and stay looking good for longer
- Superior stain protection against water and oil
- The sealer must be permanent
THE STAIN-PROOF® SOLUTION:
The uncovered tiled granite patio is often used for entertaining so food spills and regular downpours of rain can ruin the appearance of the surface and lead to more costly damage such as picture framing. The treatment applied to the patio could not alter the original look and required UV-resistance. For these reasons the patio was cleaned using STAIN-PROOF Alkaline Cleaner, formerly known as Oxy-Klenza™, and sealed with STAIN-PROOF Premium Impregnating Sealer, previously STAIN-PROOF Original™.
Dirt and grime had been left to sink into the tiles, leaving them thoroughly stained. This required Alkaline Cleaner, the powerful oxygen and alkaline based cleaner. The odorless, 100% powder concentrate removes tough stains and breaks down odors.
After the heavily stained patio was cleaned, Premium Impregnating Sealer was used to seal the surface. It’s superior penetration and water and oil repellency will stop water, food and liquid spills from causing permanent staining. Premium Impregnating Sealer permanently bonds to the material through a chemical reaction deep inside the pores where it is not affected by UV light, cleaning processes or traffic. The sealer’s protection does not affect the wet-slip resistance of surfaces. The permanency of Premium Impregnating Sealer means regular re-application is not necessary so the cost and effort of maintenance is reduced. Premium Impregnating Sealer comes with a 15-year performance warranty when the product is applied by a STAIN-PROOF Accredited Applicator.
