Maintaining a bathroom floor can be tiring and time-consuming. Moreover, homeowners should take additional precautions if the floor is made of natural stone. A homeowner in Fleming Island knew that his cleaning efforts didn't work on his bathroom floor. Stains and shoe prints remained on the tiles after constant scrubbing, and etch marks appeared in different parts of the stone.

Bathroom Floor Before and After a Stone Polishing in Fleming Island
The homeowner knew that using the wrong cleaners could worsen the problem, and the number of marks showed that it was time to get a stone polishing professional. After years of coming across different local companies, he knew there was no contest. He got in touch with Sir Grout of NE Florida after looking for our contact information online, and our agent was happy to tell him more about our stone polishing service in Fleming Island.

A few days later, our specialists visited his house following the homeowner's request for an in-home evaluation. They observed the bathroom floor and checked the stone for cracks before deciding on the best course of action. While there was no structural damage on the stone, the floor as a whole looked dull and unattractive. The sharp contrast between the black and white tiles was much less striking with all the stains on the surface, and our techs had no trouble finding all the signs of etching on the floor.

The surface needed a thorough honing and polishing service, but our experts also stressed the importance of applying stone sealant at the end of the process. If the floor was left unprotected, it would lose its shine quickly. The client agreed with this assessment and asked our techs to return later that week for the restoration.

Our experts returned to the bathroom area on the appointed date to work on the floor. They started by protecting the area with clear plastic and masking tape. When they were done preparing the surface, they used a stone-safe cleaner and a high-speed scrubber to remove the embedded dirt on the tiles. Our permeating cleaner managed to get through the worst stains, simplifying the process once the dirt was loose.

For the next step, our techs removed three sets of diamond pads to hone the stone. They gradually increased the level of grit as the etch marks disappeared from the surface, leaving the floor with a nice, matte finish. Then, they applied high-end polishing powers to all the tiles until the entire floor had regained its natural shine.

Last but not least, our specialists applied stone sealant, protecting the porous surface against liquids, mold, and wear and tear. Unsealed stone surfaces are much more vulnerable to damage and can get permanent marks from spills, scratches, or foot traffic. Our sealant protects high-traffic surfaces from all these elements and preserves the stone's color and sheen.

By the end of the process, the floor looked gorgeous, and the client was thoroughly satisfied with the result. He praised our team's skills and promised to recommend Sir Grout of NE Florida to his friends and relatives in Fleming Island.

At the end of the appointment, our techs shared some additional recommendations to help the homeowner with his cleaning routine. They listed the advantages of pH-neutral cleaners like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner, describing how our product removes common stains in minutes without exposing the surface to harsh ingredients. Unlike bleach and other store-bought products, our cleaner doesn't weaken the sealant, so homeowners don't have to worry about lasting damage on delicate stone surfaces.

Our experts also provided specific tips for preventing moisture buildup on bathroom surfaces. They recommended wiping any liquid residue with a mop, a towel, or a terry cloth to avoid scratching the tiles. Opening the windows and doors also helps reduce mold and keeps the air circulating in and out of the room throughout the day.
