Our Spring Hill Stone Honing Service Brought This Marble Vanity to Its Former Glory
September 01, 2021Nothing beats marble if you want to add some elegance to your living spaces. There's a reason why marble counters and showers always take the spotlight when you first walk into a room. This homeowner from Spring Hill, TN, takes pride in the beauty of her bathroom's marble vanity, always making sure to enhance its shine with regular cleaning and surface polishing. Despite her best efforts, signs of damage started becoming more prominent by the day, to the point that she considered replacing her vanity top to save herself the aggravation.
Luckily, things didn't go that far before she found the ideal solution in Sir Grout Nashville. The homeowner looked for Spring Hill Stone Honing services with the hope of avoiding all the risks of a major installation job. She found Sir Grout's website soon after starting her search, read through some of the reviews left by previous clients, and finally contacted our specialists to get more insight into what the restoration process would entail.
Our team wasted no time paying a visit, and they immediately set out to evaluate the damage. Through their professional assessment and constant feedback with the homeowner, they found how the excessive use of vinegar and house cleaners had led to the deterioration of the marble surfaces, a common occurrence given the advantages of vinegar against grease, dirt, and bacteria. In truth, acidic solutions like vinegar and soap-based cleaners will only wear down the stone and create more problems down the line.
To restore the stone's natural shine and prevent the vanity from getting more tarnished, the surface would have to be fully sealed, along with the proper restoration services to undo the damage on the marble. After explaining the process to the homeowner, our specialists applied a trial run of our methods to let her see our results first-hand. The client was pleased with the result and scheduled an appointment to begin the restoration process.
On the appointed date, our team conducted a thorough restoration job on the vanity's surface. They applied a high-speed scrubber to get rid of any trace of dirt, and our exclusive stone-safe cleaner ensured that this initial step was completed without putting a toll on the surface itself. Following this, they began the honing service using high-end diamond pads to remove etch marks, stains, and watermarks. They went on grinding each surface, gradually increasing the grit pad number until each side of the vanity had been polished to the same level of shine.
The final stage of the process involved a coat of protective sealer to preserve the vanity's newly restored look, protecting its surface from the substances that inevitably slip into the area during a homeowner's everyday routine. This protective sealer also brought out the vanity's natural color and enhanced the semi¬gloss finish from the polish service.
By the end of the process, we had a beautiful vanity top that looked brand new from all angles. Our team successfully restored the stone's former sheen and removed all the damages that had dulled its natural color. Needless to say, our client was delighted by the end result and welcomed our parting suggestions.
When it comes to the maintenance of marble surfaces, pH-neutral, soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner are the safest way to maintain hygiene without wearing down the stone or endangering the household. This was also our recommendation for our homeowner so that she could always preserve the beauty of her vanity whenever a thorough cleaning session was needed (spills, dust, product residue, mold, mildew, and other outside elements dirtying the surface). Bathrooms are in constant need of cleaning, and this could accelerate the deterioration of their surface if you stick to generic cleaning products.
