Are you a business owner? Maybe of a large location such as a hotel? Alternatively, even a smaller area, like a commercial shop? The thought of spending money on beautiful stone for your business might be scary, especially if you have a high level of traffic.
Any natural stone undoubtedly brings elegance and an instant attraction to any space. On the downfall, some stones do tend to be somewhat delicate in their natural state, causing some people to be hesitant putting it in spaces that get plenty of traffic. What some people may not be aware of, however, is that there are measures that you can take to ensure that your stone is best taken care of, so that you can get the maximum value out of your beautiful investment.
An interesting fact:
46% of Facility managers outsource their marble polishing needs to external contractors (Such as The Marble Clinic!)
We offer a range of maintenance programs to accommodate customers with monthly, quarterly or annual service calls. Frequency is largely dependent on the material, and the amount of traffic received. Maintenance polishing and sealing will greatly increase the longevity of your natural stone and prevent the need for large restoration projects – all the while maintaining the beautiful finish of your natural stones’ surface.
The restoration of marble and other materials consists of three main steps:
The grinding process is similar to the concept of sanding wood. The first levels of wet grinding are more coarse, in order to remove deep scratches; this level of diamond-bit sanding becomes finer until a smooth, un-abrasive surface texture is acquired. From here the stone is polished or honed – depending on customer preference, and then sealed with the appropriate industrial quality sealant.
We can restore most damaged stone surfaces to a “like new” finish – even commercial locations! Why pay for replacement? Give us a call today for any advice regarding your commercial stone!
