A homeowner in Riva, MD, was set on providing the best makeover for her dining table. The marble surface was the centerpiece of her dining room, and for good reason. It could comfortably sit over ten people and its smooth surface brought a touch of sophistication that perfectly suited the rest of the room. That's why the homeowner couldn't settle for less when she started noticing hints of etching on the stone.

She'd asked for recommendations from her closest friends and relatives so she knew where to start her search. As expected, Sir Grout Annapolis was at the top of her Google results, and our website had all the information she could ask for, from cleaning tips to details about our stone honing services in Riva. The homeowner went through different sections of the website before finally heading to our scheduler and, in a few minutes, she completed her request for an in-home evaluation.

On the scheduled date, our specialists arrived at her house, and the homeowner immediately identified the identification on their vehicle and uniform. Once inside the dining room, they inspected the marble table, observing different parts of the large flat surface to assess the extent of the problem.

While they could tell that the surface received proper care, it wasn't hard to see that the marble had taken a dull, rundown appearance. The dining table needed a complete honing and sealing service so our techs offered to return for the restoration at the client's convenience. She was thankful for their offer so she asked them to visit again later that week.

So, our specialists were back at her house a few days later, this time with all the necessary equipment to work on the table. They started deep cleaning the flat surface with a stone-safe formula to ensure that no external elements remained stuck to the pores during the next part of the process. Our cleaner easily removes old stains, stickiness, and food residue from natural stone surfaces without exposing them to chemical ingredients, so our crew only scrubbed the table for a few minutes before getting the desired result.

Then, they readied three sets of diamond pads, each of them with different levels of dirt. They honed the marble many times to work on all the etch marks, gradually increasing the grit as they made progress on the surface. To restore its natural glow, our specialists completed the process with a polishing service. Using high-end powders for the job, they covered the entire dining table until all parts of it looked equally smooth.

At this point, our techs called the client back into the room to look at the result and she was impressed by the marble's appearance. The dining table had a pure glow that mirrored the window in front of it, and the details on the stone looked crystal clear, even from a distance. The client eagerly praised our crew's work and promised to recommend our services to all the people she knew.

Before leaving the client's home, our techs went over the most important tips for the maintenance of natural stone surfaces. First, they stressed the importance of avoiding bleach and soap-based cleaners to avoid marks and discoloration. PH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner are much more effective at removing the stains left by spills and moisture, saving time without subjecting marble surfaces to harsh ingredients.

A regular cleaning routine should include pH-neutral cleaners and non-abrasive tools like a towel or a terry cloth. This way, homeowners can do a thorough job without unknowingly worsening the risks of marks on high-traffic surfaces. This approach would come in handy for the marble table, where small scratch marks and stains could easily draw all the attention.

Our experts also recommended to keep an eye on the room's ventilation. The client's house had a powerful ventilation system that reached every room on the ground floor, so she only needed to look at hidden corners and other harder-to-reach areas to rule out the chances of mold around other parts of her home. After all, constant circulation of fresh air is crucial to preserve marble and other hard surfaces.
