Marble is a beautiful natural stone that can give a stylish look to any surface, but it is prone to deterioration and can become dull and unappealing without proper care. Moreover, daily wear and tear or harsh cleaning products can cause long-term damage that might require professional restoration. We recently received a request from a client in Edgewater, MD, experiencing a similar problem.

Vanity Top Before and After a Superb Stone Honing in Edgewater, MD
She had a gorgeous marble vanity but was unhappy because the surface looked dull and unappealing. The owner realized she needed professional assistance to restore the surface, so she went online and searched for stone honing services in Edgewater, Maryland, and found a link to our website at the top of Google's results.

On our user-friendly site, she had a great experience reading a few of our blog posts and checking out our picture gallery. She was convinced we could provide the service she was looking for, so she requested a free evaluation at her convenience by filling out our online scheduler.

At Sir Grout, we take great pride in upholding a professional image that demonstrates our dedication to providing excellent service. Our vehicles and equipment are meticulously maintained and labeled, so our customers can easily identify us when we arrive. Dressed in neat uniforms, we arrived on schedule and began the in-home consultation, immediately assessing the issues on the vanity top.

The stone was in poor condition, with a lackluster appearance and various stains. We explained to the owner that day-to-day wear, using harsh chemicals, or leaving acidic substances to dry on the surface can cause these issues. Moreover, we noticed that the surface was not adequately sealed, which can lead to further damage and decay over time.

After sharing our observations, we suggested our stone cleaning, honing, and polishing service to restore the vanity top. Our process features professional-grade equipment and our proprietary products, which are the safest, and most advanced on the market. We assured her we would repair the damage, shield and enhance the stone, and give the surface a beautiful shine.

We provided a quote without any obligations and a detailed outline of all the steps involved in the restoration process. The customer was satisfied with the solution we suggested and immediately requested to schedule the job on a future date and time that suited her.

From the moment we set up the free quote until the project is completed, we treat our client's properties with extreme care and attention. On the scheduled date and time, we returned to restore the surface, and after protecting the area, we set up our equipment and proceeded with our multi-step process, keeping our client updated and answering any questions she might have.

We started by cleaning the marble surface using a high-speed scrubber and our exclusive cleaner. Our product is stone-safe, crafted with high-quality ingredients that won't leave a residue or damage the surface.

In the next step, we used low-grit diamond pads to hone the stone. We gradually increased the grit level until all the damage on the surface was removed. Honing gives the surface a matte finish, so we had to polish it to restore its vibrant shine. We continued grinding the stone with high-end polishing powders until it had a glossy and reflective appearance.

To finish the job, we applied an impregnating sealant to the surface. This sealant provides protection against spills, water damage, etch marks, and stains. Moreover, it enhances the appearance of the stone and makes maintenance easy. With proper care, the protection can last for a considerable time.

After completing the restoration, we tidied up and invited our client to inspect the results. The owner was thrilled to see the gleaming surface and amazed at how stunningly beautiful her vanity top looked once again.

She thanked us for a job that exceeded her expectations and promised to recommend our services to family and friends with similar hard surface-related issues. She also mentioned she would leave a five-star review on Google to ensure others knew about Sir Grout's outstanding products and services.

Before leaving, we always take the time to give our clients some recommendations and helpful tips for better maintenance. We recommended keeping a weekly cleaning routine using pH-neutral and soap-free cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Unlike other cleaners, our product won't damage the stone, delivers remarkable results, and because it's non-toxic, it's safe for everyone in her home, including pets.

We don't recommend using soap-based products or substances with acidic properties because they contain harsh chemicals that can damage the marble. In addition, they leave a residue that can dry on the surface, leading to discoloration, staining, and other issues like etching.

It is also important to keep the surface dry using paper towels or terry cloths and to avoid using abrasive tools because they can scratch the stone. We also recommend storing wet bottles like perfumes and other cosmetics in safe containers to prevent stains.
