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.
