Maintenance of Burgundy Limestone

Vacuum cleaner, soap and water

This non aggressive maintenance will allow Burgundy limestone to create a natural patina composed of a skin of calcium carbonate.

To find out more, each stone being unique, do not hesitate to contact the professionals who supplied and/or installed your paving.


Eliminate dust by vacuuming and wash with pure water with the addition of genuine Savon de Marseille soap flakes.

Ban the use of commercial detergents which destroy the patina that is stone’s natural protection. 

The use of high pressure hosing is strongly discouraged.   It enlarges the natural pores in the stone, destroys the natural patina, weakens the stone and favours water penetration.
