Deep Stone Cleaning
This is a high-pressure steam based system that will blast through dirt and grime that is impossible to clean otherwise. Our Deep Stone Cleaning is safe for use on all natural stone, and you are sure to be impressed with the results.
Professional stone sealing is the best way to protect your stonework from staining spills and oils, making the appearance of your stone easier to maintain. Different stones require different types of sealers, and our knowledgeable technicians will match the right sealer to your stone for a beautiful and strong barrier to damaging elements.
The use of penetrating sealers/impregnators formulated to enhance or enrich the color of your stone. Some natural stone is most beautiful when the naturally occuring veins and colors are deepened and enhanced. We have a special color-enhancing sealer for these types of stone (granite, marble and slate for example) that can give your stonework a new look. We are happy to discuss this option with you if you would like to use a color-enhancing stone sealer rather than a traditional one.
To remove coatings that block stone's ability to breathe which causes spalling (when the stones crack, pop and shale). Some examples of common coatings are: crystallization, janitorial waxes, polyurethane, etc. For stonework that has been sealed improperly, this servie will allow you to revitalize and protect your stone. Using a chemical sealer stripper to break down the old sealer, we will then use high pressure cleaning to remove the old sealant and stripper residue. Finally, a Ph balancer will be applied to balance the stone's Ph levels and prevent acid damage. We recommend to follow this service with our stone sealing service.
Grout Cleaning and Sealing
Dirt loves to hide in grout. Brushes cannot penetrate into the micro pores to get all of the contaminants out. We use a patented system to clean your grout to like new and then we seal it to facilitate easier maintenance for the long haul.
Stone Crystallization Refinishing Service
Natural Stone Crystallization Refinishing is best explained as maintenance polishing. Performing this lighter polishing service on your stonework once or twice a year will keep your stone looking its best and prevent the more expensive heavy duty services such as lippage removal and diamond honing and polishing.
Diamond Honing and Polishing
Using commercial grade diamonds, the diamond honing procedure will remove any deep scratches or wear patterns in your stone as well as deep stains. The diamond polishing service is a similar process for light marks and wear patterns. Diamond stone polishing will leave your stone with the exact finish you want, anywhere from matte to super shiny. These two processes, together or separate depending on your specific needs, will restore your stone to its full original beauty. What is more, the diamond polishing process will actually reduce the size of the pores in your natural stone, making it easier to clean and maintain.
Lippage refers to unevenness in your stone floor. Removing lippage can vastly increase the the lifetime of your stone floor and protect it from uneven wear patterns. This process is a more intense time-consuming honing down of your stone floor with large rough diamonds to create an even flat surface. The process is followed with the standard diamond honing and polishing for a smooth and beautiful finish.
