Our Westport Stone Honing Professionals Provided an Outstanding Service and Successfully Brought Back the Luster of This Marble Floor
February 29, 2020
A couple from Westport, CT needed Sir Grout's help because their gorgeous marble floor looked dull and lifeless. They struggled with the maintenance of the surface for a while, trying to improve the condition of the marble. The owners used some DIY methods they found online, but nothing seemed to work. Unfortunately, they couldn't achieve positive results.
After discussing and evaluating the situation, they decided to hire professional assistance. When they were looking, they heard about Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County from one of their friends. He recommended us because we had restored his granite floor. He advised them to contact us as soon as possible. The couple followed his advice and called us, asking for a free in-home consultation. With our top of the line Westport Stone Honing
service, we successfully improved the appearance of their marble floor with a renewed finish.
Following the owner's request, we visited their house to inspect the floor. We noticed the marble looked dull and unappealing. Heavy foot traffic had led to the deterioration of the stone. After years of daily use, the marble had lost its natural beauty. We explained that these types of surfaces require proper maintenance. Using harsh products and improper cleaning methods can cause more damage. As the assessment continued, we found it was necessary to seal the stone. Unsealed marble can absorb any kind of liquid or spills, leading to issues such as etching. When we finished the inspection, we told the owners that regular cleaning wouldn't be effective for bringing back the luster to the marble tiles. We offered a stone honing service to rectify the damages and enhance the stone with a brand-new finish. The couple was pleased with our proposal and decided to hire us.
A few days later, we returned to our client's house to restore the marble floor. Our process follows a series of steps. To begin the job, we cleaned the surface using our stone-safe cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Our exclusive product doesn't contain any harsh agents and has an enhanced antimicrobial formula that can help inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi for up to a week after application. When the floor was completely clean, we were ready to hone the stone. We ran three sets of high-end diamond pads, each with increased levels of grit. We continued grinding until we removed all the damage.
To bring back the shine of the marble, it was necessary to polish the stone. For this task, we ground using a series of abrasive materials and special powders. We continued this process until the stone had the desired level of shine. After thorough polishing, the floor had a completely new finish. For the final step, we sealed the stone. We applied a coating of our superior sealant. Our top-notch product wards off damages from dirt, grime, and other external agents. It prevents staining and discoloration, reducing deterioration. It's ideal for floors because it minimizes the wear and tear of heavy foot traffic. When we finished the job, the stone had an enhanced appearance and all the issues were gone.
Our clients were amazed with the results. The owners couldn't believe how beautiful the marble looked. They were happy because the restoration had been fast and cost-effective. After thanking us, the couple assured us they would recommend Sir Grout of Greater Fairfield County to their friends, family, and neighbors.
Marble is a resilient natural stone, but it requires proper maintenance and care. Following our recommendations is essential for keeping these types of surfaces looking great for a long time. We suggested cleaning the floor regularly. For optimal results, use only pH-neutral soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
. Our product won't deteriorate the stone and it is non-toxic and safe for everyone in the house, including pets. It's best to avoid using avoiding soap-based or acidic cleaners. These products can react negatively with the marble, causing dull spots and etching.
It is important to keep the stone as dry as possible. Don't leave spills lingering for long periods of time. Use a paper towel and soak up any spill immediately. Don't use abrasive tools like steel wools because they can scratch the marble. To prevent damages, it's necessary to keep the stone sealed and protected. Check the sealant by pouring a few drops of water on the surface. If the stone absorbs the liquid, it needs sealing.
