A Stone Polishing Job in Dallas, TX Restored This Vanity Top to Its Former Glory
December 06, 2018Most people want their vanity tops to be both durable and capable of standing up to water, soap, and cosmetics. For this reason, some of them avoid choosing porous materials like natural stone for this type of surface. While it's true that marble, quartz, and granite vanity tops tend to be more exposed to external agents due to their porosity, they can be just as durable as any other material if they're properly maintained.
A homeowner from Dallas, TX devoted a lot of time to cleaning her house. Above all, she took special care of the natural stone vanity top in the master bathroom. She often cleaned it with products she had bought at a local store. Over time, she noticed the stone surface started looking dull. The next day, she went to the store and bought products that promised to restore the lustrous appearance of the stone. After a few days using these products and not seeing positive results, she decided to look for professional help. She went online and searched for stone polishing experts in Dallas, TX. She found our website within the top results. After she browsed the before and after gallery and read some of the reviews left by previous customers, she filled out the form at the bottom of the page to request a free evaluation and a quote.
On the day of the evaluation, our experts arrived at the client's house to assess the vanity top. The homeowner led our team to the bathroom, where they immediately noticed how dull the stone was. The surface had lost its luster and it was mildly scratched. Our techs tested the state of the stone's sealant and found it had completely worn off. Our experts asked the homeowner about her cleaning methods. She showed our team the products she had been using on the vanity top. Most of them were acidic. Using the wrong cleaning products can dull and etch natural stone.
The customer asked our specialists if they could fix the problem. They assured her that it was nothing they couldn't handle and offered her a stone polishing service to solve the problem. They also offered to seal the surface with our proprietary sealant, Stone Armor. The homeowner agreed to the service and scheduled another appointment for the job.
A few days later, our stone polishing professionals went back to the customer's home to perform the service. They began by soaking the vanity top with a pH-neutral stone-safe cleaner. This cleaner also can help inhibit the growth of harmful microorganisms for an extended period of time after it has been applied. Next, they used a high-speed scrubber to remove the dirt embedded into the stone.
After thoroughly cleaning the surface, they honed the stone with a low grit diamond pad to remove the scratches. Next, they polished the surface to give it a beautiful shiny finish. For the final step, our experts coated the vanity top with Stone Armor. This is an impregnating sealant that closes the stone's pores and keeps it protected from water, soap, dirt, and other external agents. It will also help preserve the surface's polished finish.
When they finished, our team let the client see the results. She was thrilled with the outcome. We had managed to restore the vanity top to its former glory. She thanked us and said she would recommend our services to her friends and family.
Before leaving, our experts gave the homeowner some recommendations to keep the surface in top condition. First, hey suggested wiping away spills and residue from cosmetic products as soon as they happened. Second, they recommended cleaning once a week with a pH-neutral stone-safe cleaner such as Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Acidic or alkaline substances can wear out the sealant over time and severely damage the stone. For this reason, it's best to avoid using over-the-counter products. Third, they advised her to call back for maintenance and sealing sessions to avoid unnecessary expenses.
