Limestone Cleaning & Polishing

Safe, effective limestone cleaning and polishing services for Scottsdale-area homes

THE PROCESS:

An initial assessment will be made to determine the current condition of the floor. What is the shine level? Does the floor appear to have a coating? Are there scratches, etch marks, cracks, or holes? While we make every effort possible to determine whether or not a floor has a topical coating, we cannot guarantee that one does not exist. Frequently the cause of waxy buildup on natural stone floors can be traced to the use of commercially sold “clean & shine” products containing wax as well as improper use and overuse of sealer. Overtime waxy build-up from these fake “shine in a bottle” cleaning products begin to dull the floor giving it a grayish appearance.

SO, YOUR FLOOR HAS A TOPICAL COATING:

If it has a coating, how thick is the coating? How long ago was it applied? What type of coating was it? How many times has the coating been re-applied? These are just some of the questions we will ask. Most of the time, after we remove the topical coating the floor is found to be exceptionally dull hiding scratches and etch marks. If you are wanting a highly polished floor it is going to take quite a few steps to get it there. This is a slow process and thus can be costly especially if the surface has been neglected. When comparing estimates from different stone cleaning professionals, it is important to compare the actual processes and not just dollar amounts. Do your research. It is important to note that if there are scratches, white marks, dull spots or general uneveness of the floor, a honing step will likely be necessary to remove them before the polishing can begin. If these irregularities are not removed prior to polishing, they will be magnified by the travertine polishing process. See our You Tube Videos to get an idea of our process.
