Crystal River Granite Cleaning and Polishing
"Marble and Other Natural Stone Restoration - OneRestore"
If your home or business has natural stone like marble or granite in Crystal River, it is important to give it the preservation and restorations it deserves. When these natural stones are maintained correctly, they can be some of the most remarkable and durable materials cohesive with any decor. However, natural stones demands for maintenance that manufactured flooring does not.
When properly cared for natural stone flooring can last decades, but if mistreated or not restored or maintained properly, their natural beauty easily depletes. Natural stone has significantly varying durability as some are more than others, but even the hardest stones need to be cared for and properly treated.
For example, of all natural stones, granite is known to be the hardest and yet still needs to be maintained to keep its original gleam. Following is travertine and marble, which are progressively softer and both susceptible to chemical damage. Even with weak acids, like orange juice and vinegar, they have the capacity to fairly scratch marble or travertine.
With suitable care, natural stones like granite, marble, and travertine can be maintained throughout for years to come. Without the appropriate care, your maturing natural stone surfaces and floors will end up chipped, stained, and scratched, leaving it to look very dull.
OneRestore's marble and stone restoration process will return your floors to brand new, adding monetary value and visual appeal to your home. Our maintenance program for your marble, travertine, or granite will keep your floors in perfect condition with a lower chance of future damage.
OneRestore's Natural Stone, Granite and Marble Restoration Process
OneRestore's Crystal River Marble and Granite Restoration Specialists use an abundance of resin matrix diamond abrasives ranging from grit 220 to 11,000. This is to polish, smooth, and hone your floors. Polishing and honing steps are done by us with water to reduce dust, followed by slurry to be vacuumed from the floor. Next, the stone is further polished, utilizing a polishing machine and chemical that is used to dissolve stone or concrete and re-deposits it. This fills in all the macroscopic scrapes that creates a surface that is structurally smoother, tougher, and more resistant to daily abrasion.
The final step is when we seal the stone or concrete with a penetrating sealant. Right after the final polish, the sealant is applied to the surface. This serves as protection to the stone to prevent the penetration of leaked materials upon instant contact. When maintained, a restored surface lasts 4 to 5 times longer than if using an acrylic finish.
Marble and Granite Polishing Methods
There are three complex methods when choosing polishing marble or stone surfaces that include the crystallizing polish method, the powder polish method, and the mechanical polish method. Introduced in the sixties, the crystallization method has varying levels of success. The varying success is because if done incorrectly, it can damage the stone or marble surface. With the crystallization process, your concrete or stone will be chemically refined using a steel wool pad.
When done by professionals at OneRestore, this method can be very effective and can reinstate your surfaces to their original beauty. It is ideal to do reoccurring maintenances with your floors and surfaces. Restoration of slightly etched areas require using a specialized grade stone polishing powder to restore shine to your surfaces. Mechanical polishing involves a series of steps. This procedure can instantaneously eliminate years of wear and tear while reducing the ability for the surface to be cracked in the future.
