This Dallas Family Was Amazed by a Stone Polishing Service Performed on Their Kitchen Floor
August 31, 2016This family from Dallas has lived in their current house for more than ten years now, which they bought from a senior citizen who left the country. They had no complaints about their home. In fact, they loved everything about it. Nevertheless, the kitchen's travertine floor started to become dull over the years, which made it look very different from the one the family had when they first moved in. This Dallas family started to make up excuses to not invite their friends or relatives to their home, since they thought that the dullness of the travertine floor gave the kitchen an extremely bad appearance. After discussing the situation, they concluded that the stone floor needed to be urgently polished. So, they decided to look for a Dallas stone polishing service. For this, they used one the most useful tools nowadays – the Internet. And that's how they found out about Sir Grout Dallas Fort Worth.
After an appointment was set, the Sir Grout Dallas Fort Worth team went to their home for an inspection. They noticed that the floor had been affected by constant spills of different liquids, dirt tracked in by heavy foot traffic, and inadequate cleaning techniques. The owners told the team that they wanted a polishing service to be done to make the stone shine and look like new again. The Sir Grout Dallas Fort Worth specialists carefully examined the surface of the stone to ensure that the honed finish it had could be turned into a polished one.
After performing a proper inspection, the specialists told these Dallas residents that the polishing process could be performed with no problem. The family gave them immediate authorization to start the job, so the specialists went back the day after and set to the task quickly.
The Sir Grout Dallas Fort Worth hard surface restoration team began the process by honing the stone to remove all the stains and etches from the surface, since polishing it without doing this process first would not yield the proper results. Then, they applied a polishing powder all over the floor with a buffer to give it a beautiful gloss. As the team polished the stone, its colors started to become more visible, giving it a different and nicer appearance with every passing minute.
After the procedure was done, the travertine surface had a totally different appearance. When the homeowners saw the final result, they could not help but show amazement. For them, it had been a long time since they had looked at their floor with such delight. The polishing service had turned the stone surface into a highly reflective one, allowing the natural color of the stone to be vibrantly displayed and better appreciated.
After the Sir Grout Dallas Fort Worth team of specialists made sure that the family's expectations had been met, they told them that the polishing service had also made the surface of the stone more resistant to spills, since a polished finish helps repel moisture. They also explained that standard travertine cleaning procedures would still have to be done in the future if they wanted to maintain its lustrousness and prevent future etching or staining. Therefore, the hard surface restoration specialists gave these Dallas residents some recommendations on how to maintain the shine of their stone floor, such as cleaning up spills immediately and cleaning the surface regularly by using an appropriate cleaner for this type of stone.
