A Polishing Service in Scottsdale Revamped the Gloss of This Marble Shower and Vanity Top
November 21, 2016These homeowners live in the Gainey Ranch neighborhood, a walled and gated community located in Scottsdale that is often referred to as the "Oasis in the Desert," and that is also known for its luxury living and its resort atmosphere. They have lived there for ten years now and could not have made a better decision than moving into that neighborhood, which is filled with palm tree lined roads and lush landscapes. Their house is a beautiful place, just like all the homes within the community.
Since they are truly fond of their Gainey Ranch home, they make sure to take proper care of each square foot of the property, going as far as doing a home inspection every year to determine what needs to be repaired or restored, such as a broken pipe or a wall covered in crayon marks made by their children. This year, these residents decided it was time to restore their discolored marble shower and dull vanity top, both located in the master bathroom. To fix this problem, they went online and searched for a stone polishing service in Scottsdale , as some friends had told them that this kind of service could restore the marble surfaces in the bathroom.
When browsing the web, Sir Grout Phoenix's polishing service appeared among the first search results. The homeowner's wife had already heard about our services from her older brother, who lives in a nearby city and had hired us years before to solve a similar situation in his house. He eagerly talked to his sister about our stone polishing service. So, following his advice, the homeowners decided to call the number provided on our website and scheduled a free, in-home consultation to see what could be done for the master bathroom.
Our team of hard surface restorers arrived at the property a few days later to inspect the shower and the vanity top. They found out that different cleaners had been used to try to restore the marble's appearance; unfortunately, those had just worsened the situation, since most commercial products are not suitable for this type of natural stone. Nevertheless, a honing and polishing service could surely bring the marble's shine back. The couple agreed to the service right away; they wanted the bathroom to look brand-new again as soon as possible.
The next day, our team returned to the residence and immediately got to work. To begin, they masked and covered the adjacent surfaces – like the shower knob and the vanity top's faucet – to protect them from the upcoming processes. Once everything was secured, they started honing the shower walls and floor, as well as the vanity top, to remove the etch marks and other signs of damage. Next, they used a buffer to polish all the marble surfaces and give them a glossy finish. Finally, our specialists applied a coat of our proprietary Stone Armor sealer to the entire shower and vanity top; this product was specially made to help prevent future damage of stone surfaces, such as marble.
The homeowners were very impressed by the final result. They kindly thanked our hard surface restorers for bringing their marble shower and vanity top back to life. After the service, our skilled technicians gave these Scottsdale residents recommendations on how to maintain the luster of their renewed surfaces. They told them to dry the shower after every use to reduce the amount of moisture and thus prevent mold and mildew growth. Also, when cleaning, they advised them to use a stone-safe, pH-neutral cleaner instead of any other product found in stores because that type of natural stone is delicate, and the acidic substances contained in some cleaners can damage it.
