Don’t Blow Your Top Over This Volcanic Rock

Cantera is a uniquely beautiful quarried volcanic rock used for fountains, door frames, range hoods, balustrades, fireplaces, pool copings and surrounds, tiles, columns and more. Susceptible to scratching, scuffing and dulling, particularly in areas of high use, cantera is, nevertheless, a durable as well as beautiful stone that can be restored, rather than needing to be replaced. We can resolve virtually any problem associated with cantera, including:

  • Grinding & Lippage Removal
  • Honing &¬†Polishing
  • Deep Cleaning & Sanitizing
  • Sealing

Because cantera is exceptionally porous and easily absorbs spills, staining agents and other contaminants, we highly recommend having it sealed after we provide deep cleaning or restorative services. While most stains can eventually be removed, it is best to avoid stains from the get-go.

Regular Cleaning and Care Tips

Sweep or dust mop your floors regularly to remove any debris that can get ground into the surface. We make it a point to educate our customers on proper stone care. Visit our Caring For It page to see recommended cleaning products and view our free, downloadable Stone and Tile Care Guide.
