There will come a time where the beautiful stone surfaces within your home or business will be damaged or flawed. This can easily happen from something as simple as dirt on the bottom of your shoe eroding slowly away from the stone surface, which then can eventually cause it to become damage.
Acidic substances such as certain cleaning products or foods can slowly eat away the finishing sealant on the stone, and open it contaminates. It is always best to high the right expert to bring it back to its original beauty.
We work on various different types of stone flooring, offering different services for each type:
The first part of the process is grinding, which is a method that uses a heavy weighted floor buffer that is both metal-bonded and diamond grit that easily removes both deep scratches and lippage. The point of this process is to smooth out the floor.
The next phase to the process is honing which is similar to grinding, but is not as aggressive and optional. This process uses a less coarse material and grit, which at times can be done without the grinding process.
The honing process removes both etch marks and minor scratches on the stone’s surface. The finishing results are the same as the grinding process, which is having a smooth floor surface.
The next to last part of the restoring process of your stone flooring would be polishing. This process calls for a higher grit, at times a mixture of different higher grit compounds that the ending goal is bringing out the natural shine in your stone.
The final phase that needs to be completed for restoring the natural beauty back to your stone flooring is sealing. Not only is it the final phase, but it is an important step in the refinishing process. Making sure that a high quality, protective sealant is applied to your stone surface helps prevent the stone from contaminates such as oil, dirt, water, and more.
For the best results with this final step, have it done immediately following the first three steps of grinding, honing, and polishing your stone flooring. This will guarantee the best and proper protection needed as well as help and keep the stone both clean and beautiful.
