Your limestone projects are important to you, and you want them to remain as beautiful as the first day they were installed. The easiest way to clean limestone is to use a power washer and bleach and water and good old elbow grease. Test the bleach and water on a small area before you apply it to the whole area. Once you have it cleaned to your liking you can add a sealant that we sell.
We at Weber Stone Company have been using ChemStop® products for many years and recommend it for limestone care.

Bedface Cut: Bedface (Natural Bed) is the cut parallel to the stratifications, or layers. Specialized interior stones are cut from the Fleuri bedface layer, which is the 'premium' layer of the Bedface cut. The finishes available for the Bedface cut are sawed, sandblasted, smooth, honed, polished, and polished/filled. Also, for a more natural look, Natural Bed or our standard flagstone is often used. Edge finishes are available including smooth, honed, polished, beveled, bullnosed, handfaced, splitfaced, and more.
Veine Cut: Veine is the cut perpendicular to the stratifications, or layers. This creates a wonderful visual effect of the various tones of the stone's veins. The finishes available for the Veine cut are sawed, sandblasted, smooth, honed, polished, and polished/filled. Our standard veneers are created from this cut with a spitfaced finish. Other edge finishes available include smooth, honed, polished, beveled, bullnosed, and more.
Natural Bed: Natural Bed is a natural, irregular finish that is created by the natural cleft between the layers in the stone (Bedface only).
Smooth: Stone is smoothed by machine or by hand, leaving a flat, finished surface (Bedface or Veine).
Sandblasted: Sand is air-blasted onto the stone's surface, creating a porous finish (Bedface or Veine).
Sawed: Stone is machine sawed which may leave slight saw marks. (Bedface or Veine).
Honed: This is one step beyond the smooth finish. A less abrasive material is used leaving a very smooth, non-shiny surface that is buffed (Bedface or Veine).
Polished: This is one step beyond the honed finish. A very non-abrasive material is used leaving a beautiful, smooth, and shiny surface (Bedface or Veine).
Splitfaced: Stone is split with a hydraulic cutter creating a rough perpendicular surface (Veine Only).
Handfaced: Stone is shaped by hand with a chisel creating a natural, slightly-convex surface (Veine Only).
