Have oily make up stains spoiled the look of your marble bathroom vanity?
Natural Granite benchtops and vanities are extremely hard and durable, however over time they can still stain. Constant exposure to cooking oils, oily makeup and skin lotions, can cause these substances to build up and penetrate the stone.
Common areas for discolouration in the kitchen are around the cooktop and sink, and in the bathroom, around the vanity basin, where toiletries and containers stand.
The Marble Man will assess your granite benchtop to determine which process will successfully remove the stains. Where the stains are more superficial, Nano technology will be used. Where a stain has penetrated deeper into the stone, a poultice may be required to draw out the stain.
These treatments will improve the general unevenness of the reflection, however only polishing will fully restore the surface and remove deep stains and worn areas.
The Marble Man has developed a special granite polishing system called Fusion Polish to restore the factory finish to granite surfaces.
Does your Caesarstone kitchen benchtop look yellow or stained?
There are many different brands of engineered stone benchtops. Some of the more popular stones include Caesarstone, Essa Stone, Quantum Quartz, Silestone and Smart Stone.
These come with a manufacturer’s seal, however over time all engineered stone benchtops and vanities will stain or discolour, especially if the manufacturer’s cleaning instructions are not followed. As with marble and granite benchtops, oil and grease, food, makeup and toiletries can penetrate and stain the surface.
Up until recently, yellowing of engineered stone benchtops has been impossible to remove. The Marble Man however, has developed a special poultice that dramatically improves the colour of the stone and in some cases completely removes yellowing. Results will vary depending on the severity of the staining or age discolouration.
The stone surface is firstly cleaned using a Nano technology product to remove surface staining and grime. The poultice is professionally applied and left for several days to penetrate the stone. After the poultice is removed the surface is cleaned and an anti-bacterial treatment applied.
If the benchtop or vanity has scratches, dull spots from scourers, worn areas, as well as stains, these can also be removed. The Marble Man has also developed a special process for polishing engineered stone called Fusion Polish. This process will even out the surface and improve the shine and reflection of the engineered stone.
