When you’re using Nova Stone’s products, we want to ensure that you get the most from your stone. Summer is upon us, and now is the best time to make sure your home looks great inside and out! Below are our recommended instructions for cleaning your Native Custom Stone manufactured stone veneer. 

5 Steps to Properly Cleaning Manufactured Stone Veneer:

  1. Thoroughly mix approximately one cup of Laundry detergent into 3 gallons of hot water.  Never use detergents with bleach, any types of acid, or a pressure washer.

  2. Rinse the stone/brick with water to remove loose debris.

  3. Using a circular motion scrub the dirtiest areas first using a medium bristle brush.

  4. Rinse the cleaned area thoroughly, removing all detergent and suds.

  5. Let dry, if you still see dirt and debris, repeat the cleaning process. 

Remember you don’t need to clean your manufactured stone often, if there is a little mud or muck just rinse with a hose or water. Or, if you have accent stone veneer inside your home, just wipe it down with a damp cloth.
