This Vanity Top Gets a Makeover From Our Glen Cove Stone Polishing Specialists
January 23, 2022A homeowner in Glen Cove had always given special attention to her bathroom vanity. The marble vanity top was the bathroom's centerpiece, with an elegant design that would always get compliments from guests. As such, the homeowner was very disheartened as the vanity top started looking duller, with nothing to bring back its former shine. Our Glen Cove Stone Polishing services were the best way to tackle the problem before it left permanent marks on the stone.
After seeing her vanity in such poor condition, the homeowner immediately thought of Sir Grout Nassau New York. She'd visited one of her relatives and seen the result of our restoration process a few weeks before, so the solution to her problem was a no-brainer. She went online to read about our services and filled out the "Request a Quote" form after spending a few minutes admiring the results on display in our picture gallery. Our specialists were quick to respond, and she welcomed our team into her home a few days later.
Upon inspecting the vanity top, our specialists found etch marks that made some parts of the flat surface look washed out, even when compared to the vanity's overall dull look. When asked about it, the owner confirmed that she'd used a mix of vinegar and water many times while cleaning, unknowingly leaving the stone more vulnerable to stains and etch marks. We explained that acidic formulas and soap-based cleaners have pH imbalances that only prompt more damage while eating away at the sealant. Marble vanities are particularly vulnerable to etch marks when subjected to harsh cleaners. The best course of action was to hone and polish the vanity top, as well as sealing the surface to preserve the marble against gradual decay. This would also stop the signs of discoloration before they started to become more noticeable on the stone's delicate surface.
The client scheduled a new appointment for the restoration and our specialists came back to her house a few days later. After applying a pH-neutral cleaner on all the vanity surfaces, we scrubbed it clean with a high-speed scrubbing machine. Our product can be safely used on natural stone surfaces because it has no harsh ingredients. Our specialists made sure there were no residues before they started to hone the stone.
For this part of the process, our techs ran three sets of diamond pads, increasing the grit level until there were no marks on the stone and the vanity top had a nice matte finish. Then, they used special powders to polish the surface, progressively restoring its natural shine. Last but not least, they soaked the vanity top with a coat of Stone Armor to preserve its beauty against the effects of wear and tear.
The client was so happy when she saw the result and wouldn't stop praising the marble's shine. She kept thanking our specialists and promised to recommend Sir Grout Nassau New York to her friends and other people in Glen Cove.
We shared some useful tips with the homeowner since she'd asked about stone-safe cleaning products earlier in the day. As our specialists told her, pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner are the safest way to keep stone surfaces smooth and spotless without risking discoloration. It also has no harsh ingredients in its formula, so there are no harmful residues to worry about during your cleaning routine. A towel or a terry cloth is the best option to wipe out spills and stains without scratching the stone in the process, so we suggested using that instead of steel wools and other abrasive tools. Another important recommendation was to keep bathroom surfaces well ventilated to prevent moisture buildup.
