Marble, limestone and travertine showers are the most common. Over time these lose there shine and become worn and more often have cleaners sprayed on to them that damaged to smooth finish on the surface. This therefore creates a textured finish which becomes hard to clean and then harsher cleaners are used which makes it even worse.

Walls

Grout Smear in Stone Walls
Repolishing Marble Walls (Removing grout burn): Repolishing the marble walls involves using a light abrasive on the surface of the tiles. This removes the dull etches (dull marks) on the surface of the tiles. We then use a diamond-cutting compound on the surface of the tiles to remove small swirl marks left from our polishing abrasive. The walls are then cleaned using a special detergent, which will return the tiles surface back to there original finish.

Sealing Marble, Limestone, Travertine Bathrooms

Sealing Stone Surfaces in Bathrooms
Sealing the stone involves thoroughly cleaning the stone to remove all inground dirt and excess materials on the surface. This is achieved by using special detergents and rotary scrubbers with all materials wet vacuumed dry. The areas is then left to dry overnight. The following day two coats of penetrating sealant are applied which soak into the stone and dry thereby sealing the pores from foreign materials. Our sealers do not alter the surface appearance or colour of the stone. Penetrating sealers do not prevent etching from occurring on the surface of marble and limestone.

After sealing the marble surfaces they will be easier to keep clean, but most importantly will not allow any liquids into the surface. Instead you’ll notice any liquid just beads on the surface. Sealing also helps to reduce the amount of mould growth in showers as it reduces the amount of water that finds it’s way beneath and behind the tiles. After sealing the area, when maintained using our maintenance process the sealer will last up to 15 years.

Benefits:

  • Seals the surface to stop liquids and dirt from penetrating the stone surfaces.
  • Seals the grouting to help stop liquids and dirt staining them.
  • The areas will be easier to keep clean.
  • Sealing will reduce the scum build-up in your showers.
  • Will help prevent mould growth in the shower.
  • By using a penetrating sealer the stone will be able to breathe.

How do we polish your reconstituted granite benchtop, bar top or vanity?

Each of the stones such as Ceasarstone require a slightly different process to polish them and even between the different colours require different processes. We therefore have a range of different polishes to create an exact uniform finish to the stone and also have a polishing process called Fusion, which we can complete to the reconstituted granite benchtops to improve even the factory gloss. This gives us many options to be able to produce the best finish and match possible to most reflective issues.

We can polish all reconstituted granite benchtops including:

  • Caeserstone
  • Essa Stone
  • Quantum Quartz
  • Silestone
  • Smart Stone
  • Other imported stone benchtops
