Our Soho Stone Honing Experts Revamped the 50-Year-Old Marble Surfaces in This Residential Building
August 13, 2021The manager of a residential building in Soho, NY, needed Sir Grout's help. The building was equipped with 50-year-old marble surfaces. This natural stone is beautiful and durable, but a few years earlier, these surfaces had received fire damage. As a result, they were in poor condition. The damage had never been addressed, but recently, the manager received some complaints from the residents. They wanted a fast solution.
Since the manager agreed it was time to solve the issue, she decided to look for a professional hard surface restoration company. She went online and searched for Soho Stone Honing services. The top results of the search led her to Sir Grout New York's website. After thoroughly browsing our picture gallery, and reading the positive reviews we receive every day, she was convinced we could help. Hoping to solve the problem quickly, the manager filled out the "Request a Quote" form and asked for a free assessment.
Shortly after her request, we visited the residential building to provide the consultation. We immediately noticed the lackluster appearance of the marble. The stone was dull, unappealing, and damaged. Because of this, the surfaces looked run-down. As we continued the evaluation, we learned it was necessary to seal the surface. Sealing the stone is essential to prevent future damages.
Upon reaching our conclusion, we informed the manager that regular cleaning wouldn't provide an effective restoration. This job would require Sir Grout's top-notch process and professional equipment. We offered a stone honing service to rectify all the damages and give the marble a brand-new finish. Before providing a quote, we proved the effectiveness of our solution by testing our methods on the surfaces. Happy with the results, the manager hired us for the job.
As scheduled, we returned to the residential building to restore the marble surfaces. To achieve complete success, our stone honing process follows a series of steps. We started by cleaning the surface with our stone-safe cleaner and a high-speed scrubber. Our exclusive product won't cause any damage to the marble because it doesn't leave a residue and it's made with high-quality ingredients. After cleaning, we were ready for the honing process. For this task, we ran our professional hand machines, increasing the diamond's grit level each time. We continued grinding, removing all signs of deterioration. When we finished honing, it was time to begin the sealing process.
For the final step, we shielded the marble surfaces by applying a protective sealer. Our top-notch product adds a resilient layer of protection, blocking the absorption of liquids and warding off dirt, grime, and other external agents. It also reduces deterioration from daily use, making cleaning routines easy and fast. This coating of sealer enhances the surface with a brand-new appearance and provides long-lasting results. We achieved our goals, restoring the marble and giving the surfaces a beautiful look, the surface looked amazing. All that was left was to call the manager of the building and show her the results.
Our client was thrilled when she saw the restoration we had accomplished. She loved the renewed appearance of the marble and she was very happy because there was no sign of the fire damage the surfaces received years ago. The manager was pleased because the job had been fast and cost-effective. After thanking us, she assured us she would contact Sir Grout New York for all future projects in the building.
Commercial settings can be difficult to maintain. Particularly, residential buildings are bustling areas. As a result, these surfaces receive heavy foot traffic, and this can lead to quick deterioration. To keep these challenging places looking great, it's necessary to follow Sir Grout's recommendations. We suggested setting a regular cleaning routine using only pH-neutral, soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our product is soap-free and offers many other benefits. It is also non-toxic and safe for everyone, including pets.
It is best to avoid soap-based cleaners or substances that contain acidic properties. These products are harsh and can harm the marble, producing stains, discoloration, and etching. When applying the cleaning solution, always use clean mops. Let the surface dry completely before setting foot on the area again.
