Diamond Polishing for Natural Stone

The deep shine adored on natural stone is achieved by polishing with a series of abrasives. The series begins with a more coarse abrasive and progressively leads to a very fine abrasive. When the series is complete, scratches are microscopic and the stone exhibits high reflectivity. The best abrasive to use is diamond because of the unique degree of hardness. The techniques employed to accomplish such a high degree of smoothness requires special knowledge and training. Technicians at any reputable company should conduct a test spot and plan prior to undertaking any polishing job. 


General Maintenance Tips for Ceramic Tile and Stone

Care for Your Ceramic Tile
Purchase a quality dust mop and sweep your ceramic tile floors regularly. Sweeping is especially important for new installations because the grout has not fully cured, which means the grout is vulnerable to contaminates. Dirt and sand tend to wear or etch hard surfaces under heavy foot traffic. Dirt collecting carpet mats should be placed in frequently used entrances and shaken out weekly.  We do not recommend the use of floor waxes on ceramic due to the difficultly of removal and uneven deterioration.

Sealing floors, opposed to waxing, will deem waxing unnecessary. Showers and tub enclosures should have proper ventilation because stagnant water breeds stain causing mildew and fungi. Mop or sponge your tile down two or three times a week using a mixture of one capful of dishwashing liquid per gallon of hot water. Then, mop up excess water and allow approximately half of an hour to dry. Buffing with a dry towel will help to reduce spotting from mineral deposits.

Care for Your Marble and Natural Stone
Natural stone has been used as flooring material since the Greeks and Romans. The two civilizations maintained their flooring by removing dry soil with the occasional application of water. Interestingly enough, a few fundamentals remain from thousands of years ago, such as simply removing abrasives that cause etching. Sand is the most common abrasive. The best preventive measure is to emplace mats or area rugs inside and outside entrances. The measure will help to minimize the sand, dirt, and grit that can scratch stone floor. Be sure that the underside of the mat or rug is a non-slip surface. Studies reveal, under normal conditions it will take a person approximately eight steps to remove sand or dirt from the bottom of shoes.
