A Stone Honing and Polishing Service Is All These Spaces Needed to Be Completely Restored in Soho, NY
June 21, 2017When someone moves into a new home, they want everything to be perfect. New owners want to make sure that everything is in good condition, and repair anything that will make them feel more comfortable in their new place. In the case of these owners, they felt that something was missing in their new home. Overall, the place was in very good shape, but it needed a few repairs. After analyzing their priorities, they concluded that the floors in the laundry and the master bathroom needed the most work to refresh the house. A Soho stone honing and polishing service was what they needed to fulfill this.
These homeowners wanted to be assured that their investment was going to be worthwhile and last for many years, so they set out to find a company with expertise in stone honing and polishing jobs. After searching the Internet, they came across our site and knew we were the perfect choice for what they wanted to have done. They called us and arranged an in-home consultation.
The scheduled day came and we visited them to start our evaluation. After which, we agreed with our clients that the natural stone floor in the laundry room needed a revival. It was a beautiful hexagonal penny tile marble flooróclassy and shiny, but it had become dull. We determined that the most appropriate services to fix this were honing and polishing to help recover the stone's elegant sheen. In addition, we assessed the bathroom floor, which looked somewhat dirty and deteriorated. For this reason, it needed a deep cleaning and color sealingóour proprietary procedure that gives the grout a clean, even appearance. With these two services, we were positive that both rooms would look their best.
We started with the laundry floor restoration, and the first step was honing. In this process, we used a low-grit pad to buff the surface of the natural stone, exposing a new and evened out appearance; consequently, it became smoother and got a matte finish. The second step was polishing, which was necessary to get the high-gloss surface that the owners were expecting. In this step, a higher grit pad is used until the stone acquires the desired shine. Marble becomes rougher with wear and tear; this roughness does not allow light to reflect evenly, so it bounces in different directions, giving a dull appearance to the stone. The difference after honing and polishing was notable; the floor looked elegant again.
The second part of the renovation consisted of deep-cleaning the bathroom tile floor and the grout with a scrubber. After this basic step comes our flagship process, color sealing. This product is a water-based, non-toxic sealant with which the surface of the grout is protected to avoid spills, stains, and grime. Floors and grout become easier to clean after color sealing; additionally, this procedure evens out the color on the grout, giving a neater look to the floor. This procedure provides many years of protection for your floors, and to prove to our clients that ColorSeal has the highest quality in the market, it has a conditional lifetime warranty for residential services. An added value and finishing touch in this process is TileArmor, which is applied for maximum protection of tile surfaces. This product dries in minutes, leaving a non-sticky film that resists stains.
Both rooms look completely renewed. Our clients had complete trust in us and knew we would do an excellent job. We were satisfied to help these clients restore the hard surfaces in their home.
