When properly cared for and maintained, there’s nothing quite as beautiful as a polished marble floor. Has your marble or limestone floor, wall, counter top vanity or shower surfaces become worn, scratched, soiled or stained? Have you noticed chips, cracks or holes?
Protection: When a stone surface becomes damaged by scratches, heavy foot traffic, acidic cleaners and drinks, this requires more than just polishing. It requires “Diamond Grinding or Honing”. This process is done with specially designed weighted machines equipped with water feed to eliminate dust.
There are literally hundreds of different granites in existence. Some are extremely porous and some are so dense they don’t absorb anything. Most homeowners are not sure what they have. If you are not sure, then to be on the safe side, you should have the granite cleaned and sealed once every year or two.
We can help with common travertine difficulties. Travertine is a unique stone that comes in many different finishes. Travertine comes in what is known as filled and unfilled. What this means is that travertine naturally has holes that run throughout the stone.
Terrazzo can be restored using the same process that is used in restoring marble and granite. Most terrazzo is coated with a wax and the waxes have a tendency to collect dirt and to yellow, which will require stripping and re-waxing.
Sealing: Most natural stones should be sealed with a high quality penetrating sealer. Some granites do not require sealing as the stone is so dense nothing penetrates, not even the sealer. The greater majority do require sealing. Most contaminants that damage your stone are water or oil soluble.
