Natural stone cleaning

                                                                

OUR NATURAL STONE SERVICES INCLUDE:


FULL RESTORATIVE CLEANING OF (MARBLE, TRAVERTINE, SLATE, LIMESTONE, SANTIL, PAVERS, AND GRANITE.)  


A safe for natural stone, yet very aggressive cleaner is sprayed on the surface and a low speed floor scrubber machine is used to scrub the entire surface breaking down dirt and grime stored in the pores of the stone and the grout lines. If additional scrubbing is needed we manually scrub the grout lines. We then use a surface spinner with STEAM at between 800- 1000 psi depending on the stone to completely remove all substances and disinfect the surface, before neutralizing and restoring it to its natural condition.


Natural stone maintenance is critical because stone is very porus in nature. Sand, grit and dirt can easily damage natural stone surfaces. You want to be selective in what you use with your stone floor cleaning process. 


All natural stone should be sealed entirely after cleaning to prevent etching as well as damages from spills, in addition it makes maintaining and regular cleaning of the surface a lot easier.

Below are images of why the proper products and scrubbing of natural stone is a must, the pores of stone hold an abundance of dirt and other elements that over time clog and infect the surface. Below on the RIGHT you see the floor being restoratively cleaned and neutralized returning it to its natural state. On the Left if you look you see before and after MARBLE polished floor. Lower RIGHT is a LIMESTONE floor that has been cleaned polished and sealed. We can achieve any result you would on your stone floors.
