Bluestone is dense, hard, fine grain sandstone of blue-green, blue grey color and is quarried in eastern United States. It tends to be a durable and relatively easy to clean product.
Limestone is extremely durable, it's a rock that is formed by accumulation of organic remains (such as shells or coral) and consists mainly of calcium carbonate. It does, however, absorb water and since it is a carbonate rock, it is highly reactive when exposed to acids or even mildly acidic rain water.
In an interior application, Bluestone & Limestone should be cleaned with a mild, non-abrasive, non-acidic cleaner diluted with warm water. Use a soft cloth for best results. Too much cleaner may leave a haze or streaking. Rinse thoroughly after washing, changing rinse water frequently.
In an exterior application, bluestone & limestone should be flushed with clean water. A mild solution of bleach and water can be used to remove algae or moss. We recommend Bluestone and Limestone be sealed with a Silicone Impregnator to protect it from stains.
