What are the problems that are often caused by natural stones?


1. Natural stone is a type of rock with large pores. Therefore water is easily absorbed through the capillarization process. This can cause the floor of natural stone to be easily dull, mossy, and moldy.


2. Efflorescence or crystallization that often appears like small white crystals on the surface of natural stone. This can occur when water seeping through the pores or gaps between natural stones and then reacting with alkaline elements in the mortar underneath.


3. Stains or spots on the marble and granite surfaces caused by the capillarization process, namely the process of increasing cement water originating from floor levelers, ceramic adhesive, and ceramic grout.


4. Spalling or the emergence of small holes on the rock surface. This problem usually occurs because homeowners use acid salt to remove stains on the marble floor.
