Honing, Polishing, and Refinishing
Does your limestone have dull areas associated with wear patterns, scratches, etches or spots? An uneven finish, dull spots or etches can diminish the elegant appearance of your limestone surfaces. Tru-Clean Surface Care can hone your limestone surfaces to eliminate these imperfections, resulting in a new limestone surface free of damage. With our limestone honing and polishing services, our expert technicians can achieve a honed or soft matte finish that is warm, inviting, and velvety smooth. We can also polish your limestone using the appropriate diamonds or polishing powders to achieve a semi-gloss or gloss finish.
Repair and Replacement
Do you have chipped, cracked, or damaged limestone? Our expert limestone repair services include filling in chipped areas in limestone, fixing limestone cracks, blending the repair site with the surrounding area, and honing and polishing it to match the finish on the rest of your limestone surface.
Whether you are seeking guidance on how to remove limestone stains or discolorations yourself or want us to treat your limestone, most stains can be removed and the original finish of your stone can be restored.
Limestone floor and surfaces will benefit from periodic professional deep cleaning services, using non-acidic, highly-effective cleaning solutions and professional equipment.
Limestone Sealing and Protecting
Limestone is easier to keep clean with periodic professional deep cleaning services, using non-acidic, highly-effective cleaning solutions. We may recommend you have us seal it to enhance its stain resistance. We say, “May” because not all stone needs to be sealed. Highly polished limestone may not even take an impregnating sealer. But, if sealing is recommended, know that sealing represents an inexpensive, preventative measure against stain damage.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How much dust will be created during the restoration of my limestone floor?
A. There is no dust created during the restoration process, because we use diamond abrasives and water.
Q. Recently a cleaning firm spilled a cleaner that is obviously acid on my limestone vanities. They were sealed, but the damage is still very evident in the form of hundreds of small circles. What would you recommend as the way to repair them, the materials to use, etc? Would it be better to replace the vanities?
A. This is something we hear way too often. Limestone is sensitive to acid etching and improper cleaners can damage it. Impregnating sealers do a great job of protecting your stone from staining agents being absorbed into the stone but they cannot prevent acid etching on the surface. The good news is that you do not need to replace your vanity tops. We can rehone and polish the damage and restore your limestone vanity tops to good as new.
Q. Why won’t the water spots on my limestone clean up?
A. These are likely not water spots, but an etch mark in the surface of the stone. This is what happens when an acidic substance comes in contact with any calcium based stone. To get rid of the etch marks, the stone will need to be honed or polished out, much like a gemstone would have to be if it were scratched.
Q. Is there routine, daily or weekly maintenance I should be performing on my limestone floors?
A. The #1 culprit of damage to limestone floors is dirt, (grit, sand & dust). The best treatment for your floor is a dry, untreated microfiber dust mop or vacuum, used every day when possible. For homes, damp mopping is recommended on a weekly basis and whenever there are visible spills. For commercial and high traffic floors, daily damp mopping is recommended. For all natural stone, use only stone safe cleaners.
