Natural Stone Polishing

One reason that many owners of stone surfaces choose a polished finish is because they prefer the look of a polished surface. The shiny appearance has an appeal that conveys a sense of cleanliness and newness that draws people in.

Yet, the look and feel of a polished stone surface is only one reason to choose a polished stone finish.

 Another common reason for choosing a polished surface is that it adds to the durability of the stone. In what way does polishing a stone’s surface contribute to its durability? The main way a polished stone is protected is it is less porous than other finish types. Polishing a stone reduces the stone’s ability to absorb liquids in one way or another. There are a number of methods used to polish a stone surface. But each of them achieve one specific goal; they reduce the absorption of the stone. Depending on the type of stone and the liquid, this can make a huge difference in stain prevention. Since polishing stone surfaces can be accomplished in a variety of ways, let’s look at some of the methods used for polishing them.  

Our natural stone polishing service restores the original shine to your floors and counter tops and brings your surfaces back to new life. Don’t replace your tired floor – restore them. Marble is softer and more porous than most stone; it not only scratches easily, but also etches easily. Marble is sensitive to acids in many different food items (including citrus products, sodas, etc.) and the cleaning agents in industrial and household cleaners. Just like ceramic tile, 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. An etch mark in a polished marble or travertine floor can be a constant reminder that grandmother wasn’t always right about the merits of cleaning with a solution of vinegar and water.

Key benefits of natural stone polishing:

good aesthetics

A polished stone surface, whether counter, wall or floor, will improve the look of your garage, office or warehouse, and potentially increase its value.

increased density

A polished stone surface has a higher density than an unpolished one, thereby lengthening its life.

ease of care and cleaning

No need to strip and recoat your stone surface. A well-polished floor is resistant to marks, dust, oil, water and other surfaces that can cause stains. Therefore, regular maintenance isn't needed once the surface is polished. Just dust mop or damp mop. Basic cleaning will preserve it's shiny and elegant look and feel.

better health

Polished stone surfaces repel disease-causing microbes and pests and result in a healthier workspace and environment.
