Posted By MyGuy || 10-Sep-2014

Properly maintained stone can and should last a lifetime. After all it is often one of the most expensive investments we can make in our homes. Your home's beautiful stone surfaces deserve the best professional care. The experts recommend that only experienced technicians provide a detailed inspection of your home's stone surfaces and then offer the best overall cleaning process. For most surfaces, the treatment may involve the following steps:

  • Preparation: Including moving furniture, removing loose debris and masking of non-treatment areas.
  • Cleaning: Utilizing the most state-of-the art equipment to remove soil and any pre-existing sealers or waxes.
  • Honing: Using a laboratory-developed and field-tested combination of abrasive compounds, cleaning agents and grease cutters, the stone surface is gently honed to remove scratched, etches and wear marks.
  • Polish: After a thorough rinse following the honing process, special machinery and compounds are used to bring original shine back to treated stone surfaces.
  • Sealing: One or more coats of special sealant are applied and buffed, to protect against future staining.

Whether your stone renewal needs are for your floor, kitchen or bathroom surfaces, the experts should provide you the correct treatment options to revitalize and renew all of your stone surfaces, including Granite, Marble, Slate, Travertine, Terrazzo, Saltillo and many others don't be afraid to ask.
