The Color of This Travertine Floor Was Renewed After a Stone Polishing Service in Scottsdale
December 28, 2016
This North Scottsdale homeowner and his wife have lived in a first-floor apartment for many years now. In fact, their two children – both now married and living in other cities – grew up there. Recently, these homeowners had started to do some renovations in their home to improve its appearance. Among the renovations, they wanted to change the appearance of the entire floor, since the dullness concealed the natural color of the travertine surface, which had long been affected by spills, constant foot traffic, the effects of their children running around and even roller-skating, and inappropriate cleaning techniques. According to the owners, this situation made the whole place look unappealing. They wanted to have a shiny floor that would add beauty to their home, so they could have family and friends over without having to worry about their floor.
One of their friends recommended them to search online for a Scottsdale stone polishing
, as the Internet has proven to be one of the most useful tools for finding service providers. They followed the advice, and they found the polishing services provided by Sir Grout Phoenix. After reading some of the testimonials and stories about previous jobs on our website, they decided to call us and set up an appointment with our team of hard surface restoration specialists.
When the day of the appointment came, Sir Grout Phoenix's team went to the home and, as they inspected the floor and checked its condition, they noticed discoloration, multiple stains, and etches all over the floor. They told the owners that they could polish the travertine surface and, by doing so, the stone's color would be more visible, and it would also become shiny. The couple agreed to have this service performed, hoping to see an improvement in their home that would make it look lovely.
The next day, the Sir Grout Phoenix team went back to perform the task. They started the process by honing the travertine in order to remove all the accumulated stains and etches. After that, they applied a polishing powder all over the surface and carefully polished the floor using a buffer. They carried out this process on the floors of all the affected areas in the house, such as the dining room, living room, and kitchen. As they polished, the brown color of the tiles started to become more visible. The team polished the stone until they achieved a high-gloss finish.
When the job was finished and the homeowners saw the results, they were very impressed. They said they could not believe their eyes and that the floor looked brand new, as though it had just been installed and none of the circumstances that led to its dullness had ever happened.
After the Sir Grout Phoenix specialists made sure that the client's expectations had been satisfied, they proceeded to give them recommendations on proper maintenance, such as using a cleaner for travertine surfaces and cleaning up spills immediately. They explained that this was highly necessary if they wanted the lustrousness to last and if they wanted to prevent future etching or staining.
