Residental & Commercial Stone, Tile & Carpet Services
Before beginning any cleaning, restoration, or protective application we carefully consider the material; it's texture, coloring, exposure to moisture and prior protective treatments. Detailed methods of machine and hand scrubbing are used for stone cleaning. Cleaning services include soil, debris and haze removal, and stripping of many topical sealers, waxes and acrylics.
Sealing your stone is the best way to retain the beauty, preserve the life, and keep it maintainable. As stone wears, abrasions damage the finish by opening up pores and exposing the stone to problems. Staining, discoloration, erosion and odor absorption are all typical adversities that happen to stone if not sealed. All natural stone is porous and what it absorbs effects it.
Polishing is producing a "high gloss luster" on the stone. Timeless techniques generate polished finishes unmatched in the industry. Old, worn out floors can be restored; New factory finishes can be improved and honed stones can be transformed to give the floor a new distinctive look. Traffic or worn areas can be re-polished at needed intervals to maintain an indefinite high gloss finish.
Honing is the removal of scratches, etches or worn areas to produce a consistent satin luster. Modified abrasives and compounds are used to achieve unique satin finishes. Manufactured and transport abrasions can be removed and upgraded, as well as everyday household wear. High-gloss floors and surfaces can be "honed" to provide a new and distinctive "Satin Luster."
Stone Grinding (Lippage Removal)
Grinding is removing high, uneven tile edges (lippage) creating semi to completely flat installations. This eight-to-ten step abrasive process can be done on individual tiles or to entire floors. The degree of grinding can range from selective abrading to give the stone a "partial grind", or complete grinding, achieving a flush monolithic surface, a "full grind".
Grout Color Sealing / Staining
Renewing or changing of grout color, also referred to as grout sealing. After grout is cleaned, a color sealer is painted on the grout's surface, presenting a clean and fresh new grout surface, while providing the finest protective sealant available. Sealing your grout will help it maintain a clean, new look, while also helping protect it from mold, mildew, and spills.
