No, the pieces should be placed untreated and must be dry and clean before the treatment. If the tiles are treated before lay out, the moisture from the cement glue will evaporate and could stain them permanently.
The cleaning and maintenance is as simple as mopping normally with neutral-Ph soaps and adding wax occasionally.
Do not use bleach or abrasives.
The soapstone after successively being mopped, will acquire its lustre and natural character.
Our minimum order is of 0.5 m2 (one box of 13 tiles)
We recommend adding between 10 and 15 percent for trimming and material for future work.
