Our Lakeview Stone Sealing Professionals Gave This White Marble Floor a Wonderful New Look with an Outstanding Service
August 13, 2020A resident from Lakeview, IL contacted us because he was not happy with the condition of his white marble floor. He was expecting a visit from his parents. While preparing the house for their arrival, he noticed the floor looked dull and unappealing. The owner was not pleased with this situation, so he tried to solve the problem using some DIY cleaning routines he found online. Unfortunately, his efforts didn't provide the results he was expecting.
After considering his options, he decided to hire professionals. Thankfully, one of his friends was a former Sir Grout Chicago client. When he told her about his problem, she immediately recommended our Lakeview Stone Sealing service, saying we had done an incredible job in her house. Our loyal client advised him to visit our website to get more information. He followed her advice, and after browsing our picture gallery, he was convinced we were the right choice. The owner filled out the "Request a Quote" form and asked for a free in-home consultation.
Following his request, we visited his house to perform the in-home consultation. We immediately noticed the lackluster appearance of the white marble tiles. Over the years, the surface had received heavy wear and tear. As a result, the stone had lost its natural shine and beauty. We also learned the surface needed sealing. Addressing this issue is necessary to prevent future damages.
After finishing the evaluation, we concluded that conventional methods wouldn't provide the solution the owner was looking for. The restoration required Sir Grout's hard surface expertise and professional equipment. We offered a stone sealing service to remove the damage and improve the marble with a beautiful new finish. The owner was pleased with our proposal, so he decided to hire us and we set up a date for the job.
As scheduled, we returned to begin the restoration of the marble surface. For the first step of this process, we cleaned the floor using our exclusive product and a high-speed scrubber. Our stone-safe cleaner doesn't contain any harsh properties, so it won't cause any damage to the marble tiles. We thoroughly worked on the entire floor and removed all the dirt. Once we finished cleaning, we were ready to hone the stone. We prepared and ran three sets of high-end diamond pads, each with increased levels of grit. With this procedure, we successfully rectified all the damage. Honing gives the stone a matte finish. To give the surface a glossy look, we continued grinding using a series of special powders, polishing the marble until we achieved the desired level of shine.
To finish the job, we applied a coating of our top of the line sealant, ColorSeal. Our superior product offers long-lasting results and unmatched protection. It wards off dirt, grime, and other external agents, reducing deterioration from daily use. It also shields UV rays for areas subjected to solar damage. ColorSeal greatly improves the surface by giving the grout a refreshed look. It comes in a wide range of colors, allowing the owner to match the tiles with the grout. When we completed the restoration, the white marble floor had a beautiful gleam and the surface looked great.
Our client was beyond thrilled with the results. He loved the brand-new appearance of the floor. The owner was happy because the job had been fast, efficient, and cost-effective. After thanking us, he assured us he would recommend Sir Grout Chicago to his friends, family, and neighbors.
Marble is a gorgeous, durable, and versatile natural stone. For this reason, it's a very popular choice for flooring. Although this kind of surface is sturdy and can last for a long time, it requires proper care. Following Sir Grout's recommendations is essential to prevent damages. We suggested setting up a weekly cleaning routine. When performing this task, use only pH-neutral soap-free products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our product doesn't leave residue and it's made with top-quality ingredients. It is non-toxic and safe for everyone in the house, including pets. We don't recommend using soap-based cleaners or substances with acidic properties. These products contain agents that can harm the stone. Apply the cleaning solution with a clean mop and let the floor dry completely before entering the room again. Keep children and pets away from the wet surface.
To prevent staining and deterioration, remove spills as soon as they occur. Soak the liquid with a paper towel or an absorbent cloth. Don't use abrasive tools like steel wools because they can leave scratches on the marble. To minimize the accumulation of dirt, place a doormat near exterior doors. Make sure to shake the mat frequently to remove dirt.
