Our Stone Polishing Experts Recover the Luster of This Marble Vanity in Mukilteo
August 30, 2022Marble is one of the most popular surface options for bathroom vanities due to its strength and beauty. Most people prefer polished marble surfaces, but they frequently overlook the fact that polished marble needs regular maintenance to sustain its dazzling appearance.
This homeowner had a beige marble vanity in his bathroom. The vanity looked great for some time, but the owner saw that the natural stone gradually lost its luster over time. Frustrated, he tried to restore the vanity's former luster with store-bought cleaning items. Unfortunately, this just made things worse. The surfaces became etched and discolored. After some thought, the homeowner decided to get the help of professionals. He searched for stone polishing services in Mukilteo, WA, and found our website on the first page of search results. He contacted us to schedule a free in-home consultation after seeing the before and after picture gallery.
Our professionals came to the client's home a few days later to evaluate the vanity. Our specialists noticed that the marble surface was not shiny as it once was. In addition, the stone surface was etched and discolored most likely due to improper cleaning. Natural crystals can be found in marble. When these crystals reflect light, they give the natural stone a shine. Most over-the-counter solutions and acidic cleaners contain chemicals that can dull, scrape, and even discolor these crystals, preventing them from reflecting light.
To restore the marble vanity to its former brilliance, our experts offered a stone polishing multi-step procedure to the homeowner. We also offered to apply our unique sealer to the vanity. The client approved the offer and scheduled a date for the job.
Our crew returned to the client's home a few days later to begin the restoration. We cleaned the surfaces completely with a pH-neutral, stone-safe cleaner. Our cleaner also has properties that keep mold and mildew at bay. The vanity was then honed with a low grit diamond pad to eliminate all of the etch traces, and to even out the surface, they gradually increased the grit.
Polishing the marble vanity was the next step. To do so, our team polished the stone using a low-speed buffer until it recovered its natural luster. Our experts completed the service by applying our proprietary sealant to the vanity. Our sealant protects any hard surface against liquid, cosmetics, dirt, and other external agents.
When the job was finished, our crew showed the results to the homeowner. He was very happy with how clean his vanity looked. The marble had regained its luminous appearance. He thanked our experts and said he would recommend Sir Grout Seattle to his friends at work.
