Natural stones like granite, marble, travertine, limestone, sandstone, slate, basalt, used in internal and external design, are the nature treasures of the Earth. Whether you have decorated your office lobby, hotel reception, exquisite bathroom and kitchen, your stone flooring demands gentle care to keep its elegant look. Marble, granite and all other kinds of natural stone need good maintenance. And once in a while deep cleaning, grinding and polishing, sealing or re-sealing in order to save their worth and glamour.
Most common problems related to natural stone flooring are shine loss, ingrained dirt, spots from moisture, scratches and blemishes. Your stone floor must be treated with cleaning detergents and sealers, based on natural products. The structure of the stone is porous and it have to be allowed to breathe. Otherwise it will become vulnerable and prone to injury. After the deep cleaning and removing the seated soil, the floor could be impregnated to protect it from detrimental impacts. In some cases the unadapted coating of the floor must be ground, so that a proper sealing could be applied. After floor polishing you could tell it is completely different room – full of colour, glitter and life.
Our Stone Polishing Process:
At our company Cleaning Floor, we have a team of skilled and experienced professionals who use the latest techniques and equipment to polish different types of stones, including marble, granite, limestone, travertine, terrazzo, and more. Our stone polishing process involves the following steps:
Step 1: Inspection and Evaluation
Before starting the stone polishing process, we thoroughly inspect and evaluate the condition of your stone surfaces to determine the best approach and techniques to use.
Step 2: Preparation
We prepare the surface by cleaning it thoroughly to remove any dirt, grime, or debris. We also mask any adjacent surfaces to protect them from splatter or damage.
Step 3: Grinding and Honing
We use diamond abrasives and water to grind and hone the surface of the stone to remove any scratches, etches, or stains. This step also flattens the surface and prepares it for polishing.
Step 4: Polishing
We use a series of abrasive diamond pads to polish the stone surface progressively, starting with a coarse grit and moving to a finer grit until the desired level of shine and reflectivity is achieved.
Step 5: Sealing and Maintenance
We apply a sealer to the polished stone surface to protect it from future damage and to make it easier to clean and maintain. We also provide tips and advice on how to care for and maintain your stone surfaces to keep them looking their best for years to come.
