See How This Tumbled Marble Was Transformed Thanks to Our Stone Sealing Service in Newton Center, MA
October 05, 2017Many people think of marble as a perfect touch for an extraordinary home. This homeowner bought his beautiful home seven years ago. When he bought the house, he loved everything about it, especially the marble floor. Through the years, the homeowner was lucky to make many friends in the neighborhood. He often invited them on the weekends to enjoy each other's company in the beautiful house he lived in.
One particular day, he was looking through pictures on his photo album. He realized something was wrong with his once stunning marble floor. It was dull and matte. Worried about the floor, he attempted to clean it by himself with no positive results. He realized his best option was to search for a reliable company that could complete the job properly. A friend of his recommended Sir Grout of Greater Boston. Why? She had encountered a similar case with her marble master shower bathroom. She assured him that our company was the best at stone sealing and cleaning services in Newton Center, MA. After browsing through previous jobs on our website he was amazed. He was also impressed with the written testimonials and happy comments from satisfied customers. With this in mind he decided to give us a call to inspect his kitchen floor.
A few days later, our team arrived at the client's house for the inspection. Our team immediately noticed that the marble floor had faded. It was dull and lifeless. Our experts explained that there were so many reasons why this marble floor was looking like this. These included: heavy foot-traffic, the use of improper cleaning products and incorrect or worn sealing on the marble. Lack of sealing can lead to discoloration of the marble. Our team proposed to clean, strip and seal the floor to restore its original shine. The client accepted immediately.
As mentioned earlier, marble is a beautiful natural stone used for decorative and occasionally structural purposes. To maintain this luxury stone and ensure its continued sheen it is necessary to take proper care over the life of the marble.
The day of the job arrived and our marble specialists were ready. They started the process by using a pH-neutral cleaner and a high-speed scrubber to remove dirt and grime from the stone surface and grout lines. Vapor steam cleaning was then used to remove any remaining residue and ensure the marble tiles looked impeccable. After drying the entire floor, the marble looked spectacular. However, one final step was still missing. The specialists applied Sir Grout's ColorSeal to regain the original color of the stone, recover its shine and protect it from further damage.
Our team was proud of their work and they called the homeowner to show him the extraordinary results. The client was shocked to see how his marble floor now looked. He said its appearance was a million times better and he couldn't stop thanking our experts for the wonderful job they had done. In fact, he took many pictures to show his friends the top-quality service we provided. He said that he would recommend us to friends and family in need of hard surface restoration services.
Before leaving, our team explained to the client that the best way to protect and preserve the beauty of his marble floor was through sealing it. They also explained that stone floors should be resealed every year. This is not only to protect them, but also to ensure that future cleaning is easier. Sealing prevents dirt and stains from penetrating the surface of the marble. They further explained to the client that he needed to use a pH-neutral cleaner to ensure it would not damage the grout or the sealer.
