Cleaning Limestone Surfaces

Limestone surfaces are a popular choice for renovations and improvements providing the luxurious expensive look of marble but an a more affordable old-world price. Most limestone is usually white or off-white in color with unique and naturally occurring patterns throughout the stone. 

Beautiful as they are, they come with a downside that they require more care than other stone types, such as granite. This is because compositionally, limestone is more porous and sensitive to acids attack. The porosity makes it more prone than other stains and discoloration. (We once were asked to seal a brand new set of limestone stairs after removing a coffee stain… it took 6 seal applications to finally seal the stone… and each day the property manager dropped a new cup of coffee as a test.) Once sealed it usually just takes another annual application to maintain, but the first application is a doosey. Once sealed spills are easily cleaned up without staining.

Restoring Your Marble Is Essential To A Beautiful Home


Your marble contributes so much character to the beauty of your home or commercial location. Logically, it merits special attention and specific methods to help it look its absolute best. And sometimes it needs even more attention than normal. For example, do you have marble tiles or marble countertops? Do they have an elegant shine or a standout color? Are there some sizeable scratches, etches, or stains? Do you have a high tile corner or new tiles that don’t match the polish of others?


Well, all of those troubles can be fixed with marble restoration services. Any job big or small is important to take care of for your household or business needs. Thus, you’ll want to enlist the help of a professional and experienced stone care company like Marblelife. Marblelife has been servicing thousands of homes and commercial locations for more than 15 years in the San Diego area.


So let’s take a brief look at how Marblelife can help you with your marble restoration needs.


Restoring Your Marble’s Finish


If you’ve cleaned and scrubbed and cleaned some more but your marble still isn’t shining, then this is the answer for you. With the correct tools and materials, Marblelife’s professional craftsmen can bring back your shine, color and original finish to make it appear as if it was brand new. Moreover, if you’re looking to alter your marble’s finish to polished/gloss, semi-gloss, or matte, then Marblelife can provide that services as well. Your marble will be looking just as you want it to.


Grinding Your Marble


You’ll want to grind your marble flooring if your tile is unevenly placed or if you want to flatten the tile to the grout lines for easier cleaning. The ground is leveled and shaped to whatever you wish and is finished off with an excellent polish. Say goodbye to high tile corners and other large imperfections that have been limiting your marble’s beauty potential.


Marble Honing


This is a distinct task from finishing your marble and grinding your marble. This job works to remove unintended patterns, scratches, etches or spots that have been made in your marble. Moreover, your marble will be repaired and polished to complete flawlessness. If you choose to hone your marble, a trained professional won’t be done with the job until your surface is looking amazing.


Whichever task of marble restoration is necessary for you and your marble requirements, you’ll be content with the outcome. Your marble adds something extra exceptional to your location, so why not treat it to some extra special maintenance?
