Finish on stone? Never heard of such a thing. Some sort of sealer?
Back in the stone age when I was actually seeing stone put in, it was
just cut, sometimes sorta polished, and installed. Limestone (and brick)
around fireplaces would usually get that nasty black color to it (being
porous and all, and sucking up the smoke), so I guess it doesn't
surprise me that somebody developed a sealer for that application.
Propane torch? You clean fingerprints from the wall that way too?
Heck, the company has instructions for it's products on the web, as well
as customer service numbers:
Since several uses end with instructions to wash with water, it seems
logigal to try to wash it off. I would pile old towels around the
hearth to keep water off the carpet. Then lay soaking-wet towel on the
spot, let it soak, suck up with shop-vac. Repeat as needed. With a
brand new house, I'd be inclined to run that scenario past the tech
support at the mfg.
I've used cat litter to soak up spilled motor oil on concrete - works
fine on the oil but leaves some gray residue - probably micro-particles
of litter - on the concrete. Scary to use on a brand new hearth, but
might work. You might also contact your insurance company - ya never
know how helpful folks can be until you ask. Let us know :o)
