 POLISHED STONE

Step 1: Intensive Cleaning

Clean and remove grout film and construction dirt with HMK R55 Intensive Cleaner. This cleaner is specially formulated to remove grout residue, construction dirt, soil and light wax coats. Under good conditions 300 square feet can be cleaned at a time. The HMK R55 solution is applied to the surface and worked with equipment which is designed to agitate and remove surface debris for 30 minutes. When this is complete the surface is flood rinsed and the material along with the debris is extracted.

Step 2: Diamond Honing

Scratches and etch marks are removed form the surface. Starting with 30 grit diamond pads and honing to 8500 grit (depending on the surface). Then the surface is polished with abrasive powder to close the pores of the stone (only a white pad is used). This process is identical to that used to polish stone before sent from the quarry to the vendor and laid by the installer.

We provide detailed training in the art of restoring polished stone. This is a 4 step supervised process which will result in a surface that is equal to the natural sheen and elegance of the stone when it was purchased and installed.

Step 3: Impregnator / Sealer

HMK S32 or P2 Impregnator is applied by sprayer and worked with a 175 RPM floor machine. This silicon impregnator chemically bonds with the stone hardening it's surface preventing staining from tap water, oil, grease, spills or surface moisture.

Step 4: On Going Maintenance

Routine cleaning should be done with pH Neutral stone soaps and conditioners. This will guarantee lasting beauty and appearance of the stone. Only pH-7 Neutral 100% no-rinse products should be used. The "no-rinse" feature insures the conditioning that is essential for any natural material. To remove traffic patterns, powder polishing with 5 Extra Compound must be used. It is an abrasive compound of Neutral pH that is worked with a 175 RPM Floor machine.
