A Stone Honing in Houston, TX, Incredibly Changed the Look of This Bathroom Countertop
January 23, 2018
No matter how much a homeowner takes care of a house, sooner or later, time will leave its mark… and a stone countertop is no exception. This Houston resident, her husband and their children lived in a beautiful house that they bought four years ago. The wife had a part-time job, so she was able to dedicate a decent amount of time to deeply clean her home at least twice a week. She loved to share time with her family, but when the children were not at home, she usually spent that free time cleaning room by room to maintain the house as in perfect condition as possible. One of the main things she took care of every time she cleaned was the marble countertop in her bathroom, which she loved. Since she and her family moved in, the woman always bought special cleaning products to retain the marble's shine.
One day, while she was cleaning, the woman noticed that there was something off about the countertop. Immediately, she looked for an older picture on her cellphone to compare the marble now and then. She couldn't believe it—the natural stone had lost its luster. She had no idea what happened to the marble, it looked lifeless and dull. She always took special care of it, so she couldn't explain how it was now in such bad condition. The owner sat in front of the computer and typed: "best stone honing services in Houston, TX
" and found Sir Grout Houston at the top of the results. She navigated our website and saw several photos of our previous work and read a lot of testimonials from satisfied clients that hired the different services we offer. The woman talked with her husband about hiring our company to solve the problem and he agreed, but before hiring professionals, they decided to give one last try to solve the problem by themselves.
On the next day, the wife went to a local store and bought a lot of cleaning products just to clean the countertop. That same day, she began the cleaning process using the new products and even searched a few tips online on how to clean marble. After she was done, the bathroom countertop didn't look any different. The owner thought that maybe more than one session was needed to see positive results. She tried for a few more days, but she didn't succeed. The marble still looked dull. There was nothing more she could do besides call professional help if she wanted to solve the issue. So, she called to schedule a free in-home evaluation.
On the day of the assessment, our team of stone experts arrived at the home of these concerned clients to offer the perfect plan to restore the marble countertop. The wife showed the technicians the countertop she talked about on the phone call. The team took a look at it and identified the problem right away. We explained to the woman that she had been using the wrong cleaners and no matter how frequently she cleaned the marble countertop, if she was applying the incorrect methods, the natural stone would lose its lust eventually. To solve the problem, our specialists offered a multistage procedure that included deeply cleaning, honing and polishing the stone. The woman, trusting us from what she saw on our website, agreed right away and scheduled a date to do the job.
When the day arrived, our team put their skills into practice to achieve the desired results. First, they began the cleaning process by using stone-safe cleaning products on the marble countertop, along with a high-speed vertical scrubber, which is specially designed to deeply clean stone surfaces.
Once the surface was completely clean, next step was honing the stone. The experts began by using a low grit pad to remove the superficial layer of stone to uncover the original look. The specialists progressively increased the level of grit until they obtained an incredible and beautiful glossy finish.
The job was done, and our technicians let the wife into the bathroom and showed her the results. She was thrilled with the amazing outcome. The marble countertop looked beautiful and elegant. She thanked our team for the wonderful stone honing service and took several pictures to show them to her husband.
Before leaving, our team of experts gave her some recommendations and tips on how to maintain the marble countertop. First, we said that she needed to avoid flooding the stone with water to wash it. It is important to keep the surface as dry as possible, which is why it is crucial to remove any spills as soon as they happen. Our specialists also recommended using a damp mop and to clean the surface with stone-safe, pH- neutral cleaners. Finally, we told the owner that the countertop needed to be dusted periodically to avoid dirt scratching the stone.
