What We Do / Services Offered:
This is the process that removes damage
from natural stone to produce the original finish.
There are three stages of restoration
that range from aggressive to minor. Grinding is the
most aggressive with large amounts of the stone surface
removed. This is used to remove
heavy wear and lippage. Honing is used to remove light
wear and etching. Polishing is used to remove very
light etching and is the final step
Maintenance is part of the care program
for natural stone that will help the finish look better
but will not remove wear or heavy etching. Frequent dust mopping and
is the key to maintaining your floor. Maintenance will
prolong the need for aggressive restoration but will not take the place
The process that will loosen and remove
dirt and other impurities from the stone’s surface, pores and grout
is know as cleaning. Agitation, dwell time and rinsing
are part of stone cleaning. It is best to have separate mops and buckets
just for natural
stone and the chemicals used so that unwanted soiling
and chemicals are not introduced to your floor.
Impregnators are chemicals
that are applied to natural stone to help protect it
from stains. These
chemicals work below the surface to form a barrier.
Impregnating natural stone is crucial in some areas,
not as critical in other areas, but always recommended.
Similar to stone cleaning
but for porcelain and ceramic floors. The chemicals
and rinse are always
extracted by a wet vac or truck mount equipment.
Minor cracks and chips
can be fixed by using epoxy fillers that can be colored
to match your
tile. Tiles should be repaired as soon as possible
to keep the cracks from growing. This can help keep
you from having the tile replaced.
Should the tiles
need to be replaced, first we find a match for your
tile and grout. Then
the selected tiles are removed and new ones are installed.
After the tiles are set, the regrouting is done. Sometimes
it is necessary to cut new tiles to ensure a tight
fit or to match the original tile size.
If you are interested
in a new floor or additions to an existing one, we
can help with the
entire process from selecting the materials to the
stone care is our primary service we are also able
to offer professional carpet cleaning, window cleaning
and pressure washing.
