A Dull Natural Stone Floor Now Has a Revamped New Look Thanks to Our Beaufort Stone Honing Services
December 23, 2021A couple from Beaufort recently contacted us because they needed to restore a surface in their house. They had a natural stone floor that was gorgeous. Unfortunately, as time passed, the surface lost its beauty and it had an unsightly appearance. The owners were not happy with the condition of the floor, and they wanted to find a solution as soon as possible. They discussed and after evaluating their options, they decided to look for a professional hard surface restoration company. Sir Grout of the Lowcountry came to the rescue, providing the best option for them.
Later, the couple told us they found us by searching for Beaufort Stone Honing services on their search engine, and they found our website. After thoroughly browsing our picture gallery, and reading the positive testimonials from our satisfied customers, they were convinced we were the best in town. They filled out the "Request a Quote" form and asked for a free assessment.
We accepted their request, and soon after, we visited their house to provide the in-home consultation. The owner welcomed us into their home and showed us the affected surface. As soon as we entered the area, we noticed the floor looked dull and unappealing. There were also scratches and other damages caused by years of wear and tear. As the evaluation continued, we learned the surface was unsealed. We told the owners it is important to keep the stone fully sealed to prevent problems like etching and other signs of degradation.
The inspection finished with a satisfactory conclusion, and we had the insight to offer a solution. Since we had determined that regular cleaning wouldn't be effective, the restoration would require Sir Grout's professional equipment and advanced process. We proposed a stone honing service to rectify the damages, revamp the stone, and give the floor a refreshed look. The owners were happy with the assessment and the offer was exactly what they were expecting, so they immediately hired us for the job.
On the date we had set, we arrived on time to begin the restoration. Our stone honing process is a multi-step, thorough procedure that ensures excellent results. First, we cleaned the surface with our stone-safe cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Our exclusive product won't cause any damage because it's made with high-quality ingredients. When the floor was completely clean, we were ready to hone the stone. For this task, we prepared our high-end diamond honing pads and ran three sets, each with increased levels of grit. We continued grinding until there was no sign of deterioration. Honing removes all damages and gives the surface a matte finish. When we finished this step, we sealed the surface to enhance and protect the stone.
For the sealing process, we applied a coating of exclusive protective sealer. Our top-notch product blocks the absorption of liquids and provides long-lasting protection, warding off dirt, grime, and other external agents. It makes cleaning routines easy and fast by reducing the need for excessive scrubbing. In addition, our sealer boosts the surface with a shiny finish and a renewed appearance. As expected, our work was successful, the stone had been completely restored, the floor looked beautiful, and the surface was fully protected.
After achieving the goals of the stone honing job, we showed the results to our clients. The owners found the revamped look of their natural floor very impressive. They were beyond thrilled because the process had been fast and cost-effective. Happy with our work, the couple said they would contact us for future projects, and after thanking us, they assured us they would recommend Sir Grout of the Lowcountry to everyone.
Natural stones are stylish and beautiful, ideal for any area of the house. These surfaces are durable, but they require proper care. Following our recommendations is the best way to reduce deterioration. We suggest setting up a weekly cleaning routine. For this task, use only pH-neutral, soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner.
Unlike store-bought cleaners, our product doesn't leave any residue and offers many benefits. It is non-toxic and safe for everyone in the house, including pets. We don't recommend using soap-based cleaners or substances that contain acidic properties. These products can be harmful to the stone because they are made with harsh chemicals that can cause dull spots, etching, and other damages.
Apply the cleaning solution using a clean mop and let the floor dry completely before entering the room again. Dry the surface using a towel or a terry cloth, and avoid abrasive tools because they can scratch the stone. To minimize the accumulation of dirt, place a doormat near the entrance.
