Liquid stains on stone floors are nightmares to deal with. The faster you mop spillages up, the safer your stone floor will be. You can use non slip mats and rugs in accordance to the theme of your room to bring a more cohesive look to your room while also protecting a significant part of your stone floor from harm.

Don’ts
