Care

High Quality Care

We carry a full-line of Miracle Sealants Company products to care for and treat stone surfaces. Below are our recommendations on how to protect and maintain your stone so that its natural beauty will last for years to come.

ALWAYS TEST A SMALL, OUT OF VIEW AREA FIRST TO ENSURE DESIRED RESULTS.

Unpolished

These are our recommndations for unpolished surfaces.

LIGHT CLEANING

Dilute Mira Clean #1 15:1 with water (you can go stronger if necessary).

Spread out on surface and agitate periodically with a medium bristle brush for approximately 10 minutes.

Extract all dirty and standing liquid with a wet/dry vacuum system.

Rinse with clean water to avoid streaks and to remove any remaining residue. ​

For added color enhancement, apply 511 Seal & Enhance or Mira Matte color enhancer as needed. This is an optional step and not required for longevity of the stone

LIGHT CLEANING TO ADD PATINA

To slowly add some natural patina to the stone and give it the worn-in look for a vintage feel, we recommend the following:

Dilute Mira Soap 10:1 with water and use as directed on the packaging.

DO NOT rinse this product, as it is a natural stone soap that reacts with the surface to create a protective film that will enhance the natural patina.

HEAVY DUTY CLEANING

Wet surface.

Use Grout & Concrete Film Remover (GCFR) or Sulfamic Acid Crystals diluted 15:1 with water and let stand for 1 to 5 minutes and agitate with a medium or to hard-bristle hand brush for the grimiest parts.

Extract all dirty and standing water with a wet/dry vacuum system.

NON-ACIDIC HEAVY DUTY CLEANING

If the surface is just dirty from prolong normal use and does not have any real strong stain or grime stuck to it, we recommend going with a non-acidic product.  Non-acidic products are generally easier to work with and safer for the environment.

Use Liquid Poultice to lift stains and dirty out of the pores of the stone.  Use Part A and Part B per the instructions and allow it to stand for approximately 40 minutes, while agitating periodically with a medium-bristle brush.

​Extract all dirty and standing water with a wet/dry vacuum system.

HARD WATER DEPOSIT AND SOAP SCUM

Hard water deposits and dried soap suds will develop over time in and around shower, bath and sink areas.  The following procedure helps to get rid of these deposits and scum.

Squeeze Porcelain & Ceramic Tile Cleaner onto a scrub pad or rag and buff in circular motions.  For larger areas, apply directly to the surface and work in with the appropriate floor mop or machine.

Rinse with clean water.

MOLD, MILDEW AND BACTERIA SANITATION

Use Miracle Disinfectant or Miracle Wipes. These products can be used in food and kitchen counter areas, as well as in the shower and bath as frequently as is necessary.

COUNTER CLEANING

For kitchen and bathroom counters use Counter Kleen, a non-toxic cleaner that is sprayed onto the surface, as is necessary.  It will keep the counters clean without streaking.

Polished

For Polished surfaces, all of the recommendations for Unpolished surfaces apply, but there are some additional steps and some different products needed when dealing with certain abrasions.

ETCH AND WATER RING REMOVAL - WEAR GLOVES!

Sprinkle a light amount of Water Ring & Etch Remover onto the affected surface and buff in circular motions using a wet nylon buffing pad, making sure the surface stays wet throughout the process.

Wipe with a clean dry towel. Multiple applications may be needed to achieve the desired results.

Rinse the surface with Mira Clean #1, diluted 10:1.

If the surface is badly marred, use the Miracle Marble Refinishing Kit.

SCRATCH REMOVAL AND RESTORING FACTORY POLISH

Rinse the surface with Mira Clean #1, diluted 10:1.

If the surface is badly marred, use the Miracle Marble Refinishing Kit. 

For light scratches and etch marks, use Mira Polish, Mira Dust or Marble Conditioner.  If the area is really worn, start with Mira Hone.  If you are still not getting the desired results, please call us to discuss the problem and if necessary, we will recommend a stone care professional to come and handle the restoration.
