Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

Now that many people are more aware of being environmentally conscious in their day to day life, selecting the right materials for the home has become a key issue. When it comes to flooring, you do not have to sacrifice beauty for eco-friendly or ‘green’ materials if you choose to go with materials like stone for example. Even though there is no clear data on the impact of using stone as a building material on the environment, stone is known for having the following features:

  • It’s a natural product
  • It has an enduring life cycle so it doesn’t have to be replaced
  • Recyclable
  • Can be reclaimed

There is also the added bonus of stone flooring being easy to care for and maintain. Take a look at a few beautiful natural stone floor options that Ambassador Floor Company offers:

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Maintenance Tips, slider

Whether you have a natural stone backsplash or floor, you need to understand how to take care of your natural stone investment so that it can reward you and your home for many years to come. Here are 5 great tips from Ambassador Floor Company on keeping the natural stone in your home clean.

1. Use a clean, non-treated dry dust mop or broom to frequently mop and sweep natural stone floors.

2. For those hard to reach areas, use vacuum cleaner attachment.

3. Be preventative by using walk off mats and area rugs on both sides of exterior entrances to collect the loose dirt before it reaches your stone floor.

4. Make sure that the underside of the mat or rug has a non-slip surface.

5. Never use products that contain lemon juice, vinegar or other acids on marble, limestone or travertine.
