Diamond Polishing is usually recommended on stone surface that is scratched, dull, or badly worn. The process entails a wet polishing system that leaves a clean smooth surface creating no dust. This fresh surface will enable the stone to be properly polished to the client’s specifications, allowing the natural luster and color of the stone to shine through. Depending on the condition of the stone surface and the type of finish the client requests, the service technicians determine what process to use.
When you enter any property, whether residential or commercial (offices, health care facilities, hotels or private property), one of the first things you notice are the floors, whether scuffed and dirty or polished and spotless. The appearance of such a large surface area makes a lasting impression for better or worse. You want to your floors to maintain a new, fresh and healthy appearance.
Dirty, dull, scratched, stained or otherwise damaged floors and surfaces reflect poorly on you. Regular cleaning or janitorial services cannot achieve the same professional results as our stone maintenance experts. Give us a call to discuss maintenance services tailored to your unique needs.
If wear and tear from foot traffic or other damage have taken a toll on your artificial stone floors, leaving them looking dull and lifeless, it’s time to contact Stone Care Services. Our highly experienced technicians know what it takes to to restore your surfaces to a beautiful, like-new appearance.

The crystallization is a method of floor finishing . It brings "mirror like" shine by chemical reaction on the surface of stone. Crystallization also creates micro film on the surface of stone, which is more solid and durable and helps to preserve the color and the brightness of the stone. Crystallization is a very good method for regular stone maintenance. The crystallization process consists of spraying a special fluid onto the floor surface and buffing it in with cristalizer pad under the buffing machine. The cristalizer pad generates heat though abrasion and the chemical react with the stone, Producing a new compound on the surface of the stone. This procedure protects on the surface of the stone, adds shine and may even harden the stone, increasing its wears
Depending on how neglected and dirty stone grout joints may be, will determine whether or not re-grouting is recommended. If re-grouting is required, a variety of shades and colors are available to choose from. After the floor has been re-grouted with special mastic it is then grinded to remove an excess of the mastic and polished to make surface shine as natural stone.
Porous surfaces, including as many types of natural stone, tile, grout, terrazzo, pavers, and other applications, have tiny holes that trap dirt, grime, allergens, spills, and other substances that can diminish the appearance of the surface. Sealer fills in the tiny holes so that unwanted substances can be easily cleaned or wiped away before they have a chance to penetrate the surface.
In high-traffic commercial spaces, such as retail store entrances, business hallways, conference rooms, and break rooms, restaurant bar and waiting areas, as well as residential kitchens, baths, and entrances, sealing and protection is especially important.
Terrazzo is a composite material, poured in place or precast, which is used for floor and wall treatments. It consists of marble, quartz, granite, glass, or other suitable chips, sprinkled or unsprinkled, and poured with a binder that is cementitious (for chemical binding), polymeric (for physical binding), or a combination of both.
Engineered stone is a composite material made of crushed stone bound together by an adhesive, (most commonly polymer resin, with some newer versions using cement mix). The two common stones used in producing these products are marbles and quartz, the application of this product depends on the original stone used, for engineered marbles the most common application is indoor flooring and walls, while the quartz based product is used primarily for kitchen countertops. Related materials include geopolymers and cast stone.
Engineered quartz is a manmade product created mostly from natural materials. It's made of 90 to 94 percent ground quartz and 6 to 10 percent resins and pigments that are combined into durable and nonporous slabs. The strength of quartz, even in a manufactured form, makes it naturally resistant to abrasion, scratches, dents, and even acids without the need for sealants. And the environmental impact of manufactured quartz is low: Quartz is an abundant material and the finished product is nontoxic and nonallergenic, and will last a lifetime, reducing the need for replacement.
The word “grès” means that the ceramic body of the tile is extremely vitrified, that is to say compact, hence the exceptional great resistance. The result is a lean clay body, little refractory, fired in a kiln (at 1200-1400 C°) until it reaches a non-porous vitrification and a complete water-proofing.
