Stone Sealing

Stone Sealing

Sealing is one of the most important things you can do to protect your stone. Even when you buy brand new stone it will still need to be sealed to maximize its life. For most stones we use a penetrating sealer, which sinks under the surface of the stone, protecting from oil and water stains and helps to prevent acid staining.

Sealing stone with penetrative sealers does not affect the shine or finish of your stone like waxes and enhancing sealers do, leaving you with a ‘natural’ look. If you would prefer a glossy finish for your stone surface, we have an enhancing sealer that we can use instead to give you the ‘wet’ look.  We only use the best quality sealers to protect your stone for years to come.

We are stone cleaning and restoration specialists and can help you resolve problems that appear too difficult to treat. We specialize in cleaning, sealing, grout repair, caulking, removal of stains, etch marks, scratches, efflorescence and hard water stains, and other repairs to your stone surfaces.

Most homeowners have no idea of the exact composition and structure of their stone floors, bathroom shower, or countertops. Unfortunately, many of the stone care companies that have recently entered into the market don’t know what kind of stone material you have either. We’re the experts.

Cleaning

The process of stone cleaning and restoration is very important in keeping your stone looking amazing!  Unfortunately, natural stone surfaces are also natural alkalis; so are dirt and soil. Therefore, stone and dirt are attracted to each other often making cleaning very difficult.

Stone is natural and may have adverse reaction to certain cleaning chemicals and procedures.  This makes the proper selection of cleaning procedures and chemicals for stone very important.

Flagstone

Flagstone can become weathered over the years. With our detailed process, we can bring back the stones natural elegance.

Limestone

Limestone is a porous stone. It easily scratches, stains and cracks. It should not be layered by synthetic sealers or urethane. Floor Doctors advise you only use a qualified and experienced limestone tile cleaner due to the sensitivity of the stone. Our expertise and in-depth knowledge will protect your limestone by utilizing quality penetrating impregnating sealers. Our experienced limestone tile cleaners will ensure the upkeep and maintenance of your limestone floors.

Travertine

Travertine requires special care due to its calcium carbonate composition. This surface is extra vulnerable to staining and etching, especially with cleaning products that are not compatible. Our custom process will bring the natural beauty of your Travertine back for years to come.

Slate

Durable, resistant to most stains, and slip-resistant. We can sanitize and seal your slate flooring and walls to make it much easier to maintain day-to-day. This beautiful addition to your home can be enriched to a vibrant color by adding a penetrating enhancing sealer that will not only bring the natural luster of the stone to surface but will also help protect against stains and provide easier day to day maintenance.
