Natural stone is one of the most abused and overlooked floor and wall surfaces in the home, simply because of the care involved in cleaning it.

Our Cleaning Process
All natural stone cleaning and restoration, as well as sealing jobs, must be preceded by a thorough pre-inspection. Here, we determine a customized care plan to meet your specific needs for your specific stone.
2. Area Preparation
Because your home is important to you it is important to us; we will take the necessary precautions to protect all areas surrounding your stones with plastic sheets and blue tape.
Cleaning processes vary from floor to floor, many variables include make-up, maintenance, soiling conditions, traffic, use, etc… When cleaning any stones, we use the most scientifically advanced cleaning products and the stone is then machine or hand scrubbed and brushed. Finally, we will rinse the stone with a rinsing tool, connected to a truck-mounted hot water extraction system, achieving maximum soil removal and best overall cleaning results.
4. Diamond Grinding
Stone that is etched, scuffed, and scratched can be restored only by the use of mechanical abrasives underneath a rotary machine. Diamond abrasives resurface/remove a slight amount of stone (just enough to get below the etch marks and scratches). All diamond grinding is performed with the use of water to contain dust. The surfacing procedures that follow will determine the desired surface sheen.
Stone is mechanically resurfaced using diamond abrasives and water to achieve a uniformly honed surface sheen. In some cases, polished marble, granite, travertine or limestone can be mechanically honed to remove pre-existing surface polish.
Stone is mechanically finished to produce a high gloss shine. Very light etches, scuffs, and scratches may be removed with the polishing process, but diamond grinding is needed if the stone surface has medium deep etches, scuffs, and scratches.
This will be the last step in the stone cleaning process. Depending on the sealer chosen, we will use a heavy duty professional grade sealer to protect your stones.
8. Post Inspection
We will do a walk through inspection of the areas before we leave the home and give you some tips on how to maintain your stones.
The Importance of Natural Stone Cleaning
From marble and granite to travertine and limestone, these stunning materials enhance the aesthetic appeal of any environment. However, to maintain their exquisite beauty and ensure their longevity, regular and proper natural stone cleaning is paramount.
Preservation of Aesthetics
Natural stone surfaces exude a distinct charm that captivates the eye and elevates the ambiance of a space. Over time, dirt, dust, grime, and pollutants can accumulate on these surfaces, dulling their luster and diminishing their visual impact. Regular cleaning helps prevent the buildup of these contaminants, ensuring that your stone surfaces remain vibrant, radiant, and true to their natural beauty.
Protection Against Wear and Tear
Foot traffic, spills, and everyday use can lead to the gradual wear and tear of natural stone surfaces. Without proper cleaning and maintenance, dirt particles can act as abrasives, gradually eroding the stone’s surface and causing scratches. Professional natural stone cleaning not only removes these particles but also helps preserve the stone’s integrity, preventing premature damage and extending its lifespan.
Health and Hygiene
Beyond aesthetics, the cleanliness of your natural stone surfaces has a direct impact on indoor air quality and overall hygiene. Accumulated dirt, dust, and allergens can compromise the air you breathe and contribute to respiratory issues, especially in indoor environments. Thorough natural stone cleaning eliminates these potential health hazards, creating a healthier living or working space for occupants.
