Hard surface cleaning of floors can add a certain element of class and style to any office or home. More and more people are starting to see the value of replacing their traditional flooring materials such as carpets or vinyl with natural stone. The hard surface floors made from natural stones such as marble, granite or limestone not only add an aesthetic value to the architecture but also make economic sense as they are sturdier and more durable. The natural look and feel of these floors add a touch of class unmatched by any other flooring materials.
However, like any other surface coverings, hard surfaces also require proper maintenance. Over a period of time, the floors can accumulate dust and scratches which dull their beauty. Professional cleaning of the stone floors can restore and rejuvenate the beauty of these floors. Stone floor cleaning requires a lot of experience and knowledge as working with stones is not the same as working with any other traditional surface material.
There are multiple careful and meticulous steps involved in the proper cleaning of a stone floor. The first step is usually stripping away any wax that was applied which, over time acts like a dirt magnet. Tiny pits in the surface accumulate the most amount of dirt and grime which causes the surface to lose its luster.
The next step involves buffing the hard surface in a stream of water- a process similar to stone polishing, with a heavy machine with rotating abrasive disks. As one can imagine, the process is very time consuming and requires an impeccable attention to detail. Once the machine grinds the top dirty layer of the stone, it exposes a new shiny layer underneath. In the process, it also gets rid of the depressed grout joints and smoothens them. The floor is then with compounds and powders to give it that ‘mirror finish’ look. In some cases, a high pressured cleaning may allow you to avoid the grinding altogether.
This process requires a level of knowledge and craftsmanship only professionals can provide. It is of paramount importance to choose the best professional help in restoring your stone floors.
