OUR PROCESSES - NATURAL STONE

Travertine, Granite, Marble, Limestone, Slate, Terrazzo 

Marble, Terrazzo, Travertine, and ALL other Natural Stone: 
 

  • First, we deep clean the floor with a heavy-duty natural stone cleaner.

  • Grout lines are restored by brushing each line by hand with a Natural Stone Angle Brush, pressure steam is used when necessary.

  • Sand all stains such as rust, urine, wine, blood, abrasive cleaners, minor scratches and imperfections.

  • Over saturation of Natural Stone will cause holes and cracks. Special attention is paid to carefully filling most obvious imperfections, using a special Epoxy stone filler.

  • As a courtesy missing grout lines will be filled in with original color either sanded or non-sanded.

  • Polishing can be done several ways; our technicians will use different methods to achieve the natural sheen and luster of any stone. Including diamond polish, steel wool pad, or a Natural hog hair pad. Special attention is then paid to the edges and corners.

  • A Honing method is used when clients prefer a flat matte look, this method is also used to remove minor to moderate scratches from natural stone.

  • The floor is then sealed with the level of protection or length of guarantee chosen by client.

  • Level 1 sealer is: BASIC

  • Level 2 sealer is: HEAVY DUTY

  • Level 3 sealer is: BULLET PROOF 

  • Once sealer has dried the floor is then buffed with a new white pad, once again paying special attention to the edges and corners.
