Our Stone Cleaning Experts in Chicago Provided Awesome Results on This Stained Marble Floor with a Successful Restoration
December 11, 2019A homeowner from Chicago needed Sir Grout's help. While cleaning her marble floor, she noticed the condition of the surface didn't improve. The tiles looked stained and unappealing. The owner wanted a quick solution, so she tried using some DIY cleaning routines she found online. Unfortunately, her time and effort spent mopping and brushing provided no positive results. After her unsuccessful cleaning attempts, she considered her options and decided to hire professionals. Thankfully, one of her friends was a former Sir Grout Chicago client. He told her our Chicago Stone Cleaning service was the best in town and advised her to visit our website to get more information. She followed his advice and visited our site. After browsing our "Before and After" gallery, she was convinced we could help. She filled out the "Request a Quote" form and asked for a free evaluation.
Following the in-home consultation request, we visited her house to assess the floor. We immediately noticed the lackluster appearance of the marble. The floor had received heavy wear and tear. As a result, the stone was stained and had lost its natural beauty. We explained that regular cleaning is not effective to remove stains. After finishing the evaluation, we concluded that conventional methods wouldn't provide the results the owner expected. The restoration required Sir Grout's hard surface expertise and professional equipment. We offered a stone cleaning service to rectify all the problems and to give the marble tiles an enhanced appearance. The owner was pleased with our proposal, so she decided to hire us and we set up a date for the job.
We returned a few days later to perform the stone cleaning job. To begin the restoration of the marble floor, we cleaned the surface using our exclusive product and a high-speed scrubber. Our stone-safe cleaner doesn't have harsh properties, so it won't cause any damage to the marble. We made sure to remove all the dirt from the entire floor. 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 repaired the marble. After honing, the stone acquires a matte finish. Polishing is necessary if the owner wishes to give the surface a new shine.
For this job, we polished the stone back to its original shine. In order to achieve this finish, we ground using a series of abrasive materials and special powders. We continued grinding until the marble had the desired gloss. When we finished carefully polishing the surface, the entire floor looked beautiful and renewed.
Our client was thrilled with the results. The owner praised our work, saying she loved the new shine of the marble tiles. She was pleased because the job had been fast and efficient. After thanking us, she assured us she would recommend Sir Grout Chicago to her friends, family, and neighbors.
Marble tiles are sturdy and durable, but the stone requires proper care in order to prevent damages. Following Sir Grout's recommendations is essential to keep these surfaces looking great. We suggested setting up a weekly cleaning routine. For this task, it's best to use only pH-neutral soap-free products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our product offers many benefits, including ingredients that can help provide protection against bacteria and fungi. It is also non-toxic and safe for everyone in the house. We don't recommend using soap-based cleaners or substances with acidic properties. These products contain agents that can produce negative effects on 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.
Leaving spills to dry on the surface can lead to staining. The best way to prevent this issue is wiping spills as soon as they occur. Keep absorbent cloths nearby for easy access, especially during wet or snowy seasons. Don't use abrasive tools like steel wools because they can scratch the stone. To minimize accumulation of dirt, place a doormat near exterior doors. Make sure to shake the mat frequently to remove dirt.
