We found that some stones turn yellow for a long time. In fact, in addition to the stone feature itself, some of these yellowish is caused by the unreasonable use of stone wax.
Nowadays, there are many types of stone waxes sold in the market, and it is difficult for consumers to choose the suitable wax, so sometimes the stone waxes they choose do not meet the requirements and make it worse. Therefore, to avoid improper use of stone wax, many people propose not to use stone wax for maintenance.
However, many people think it is necessary because it can make the stone brighter after being polished with waxing, and can also minimize the abrasion of the stone. But for the hotels, aisles, and corridors, these places should still pay attention to the selection of stone wax and the schedule of maintenance.

It must use the stone wax reasonably and scientifically if it contains acid and alkaline substances. As we know that some stones will be corroded by acid and alkali materials.
And some water-based stone waxes contain acid and alkali substances, which will damage the stone’s integrity on the surface and even to the internal structure of the stone. Therefore, we suggest not using such acid-base wax for the stones.
And nowadays there is a test paper for the stone wax to test if it has the acid and alkali content of the stone wax. We can test it and choose a suitable one for waxing.
