Vanity Tops in Farmington Shine Like the Sun Thanks to Our Stone Polishing Experts
April 30, 2022A well-polished marble vanity top may transform a family bathroom into something modern, and Thassos marble typically has a look like sugar crystals and looks beautiful when restored. However, if these surfaces are blemished, they might become the worst nightmare ever. A homeowner in Farmington, CT, had spent weeks attempting to remove each mark from both of her vanity tops, but by mistake, she highlighted the deterioration on the surfaces. The natural stone had become discolored in various places, giving them an unhygienic and neglected appearance.
The owner did some research and found out that marble is sensitive, and that attempting to clean away the stains with store-bought products would just exacerbate the stains already present on the vanity tops. So, she realized that the only option to save the marble surfaces was to hire a professional Farmington Stone Polishing company that could restore the Thassos marble vanity top and the other marble vanity. She found our website on the first page results and requested an in-home evaluation by filling out the "Request a Quote" form.
Our experts arrived at her place a few days later to evaluate the state of the surfaces. They immediately noticed etching and discoloration. The natural stone had lost most of its luster and looked deteriorated. Our experts asked the client a few standard questions. She talked about her unsuccessful attempts to remove some of the stains on the stone by only using homemade solutions, including a vinegar-water mixture. We emphasized that most DIY cleaners are just as harsh as store-bought cleaners due to pH imbalances that make stone surfaces more susceptible to stains and etch marks. We would be able to use our equipment to hone and polish the vanity tops back to their former brightness because there was no irreparable damage. The client was relieved to hear this and agreed to set up a new appointment to begin the restoration.
That same week, our experts came back to work on the vanity tops. They covered the vanity's surface in a pH-neutral, soap-free cleaner for a few minutes before cleaning them. Our crew always does this to ensure the surface is completely clean for the following step of the restoration. Because it helps suppress the growth of mold and mildew without wearing down the surface, our cleaner is a valuable asset for cleaning stone surfaces.
Our experts used three sets of diamond pads to sharpen the surfaces. After this step, both vanity tops were clear of stains and dirt. Our team ran the pads several times, gradually raising the level of grit until all of the etch traces on the stone were gone. Then, our technicians began cleaning the surfaces with specific powders to restore their gloss.
Applying a coat of Stone Armor all over the vanity tops was the final step. Our strong sealer is the finest protection against all types of surface-level damage, from wear and tear to filth, spills, soap scum, and mildew. It also maintains the stone's inherent luster, making the marble look like new in no time. When the client saw the results of our work, she was very happy. The vanity tops had regained their previous shine, and their glow brightened the entire area. The client expressed her gratitude for our services and stated she'd refer Sir Grout Hartford to her friends and family.
Before we left the house, we gave the owner a few pieces of advice on how to keep the stunning marble surfaces always shining. Our first piece of advice was to stop using soap-based cleaners, as they do nothing to improve your cleaning and, in fact, cause additional issues for stone surfaces. To extend the sealant's protection while keeping the marble pristine and shiny, use pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Because our cleaner leaves no residue on the surface, you can incorporate it into your daily cleaning practice without endangering your family or pets, making it the greatest solution overall. Since abrasive products like steel wool can harm marble, we recommend wiping spills and dirt away with a dry towel or a terry cloth. Finally, we also suggested keeping an eye on the room's ventilation by leaving windows and doors open to let fresh air in.
