Our signature of Stone Restoration:

Grinding Process: Grinding:

Grinding is a key step in the stone restoration process, particularly when dealing with uneven surfaces, deep scratches, or stubborn stains. Our professional technicians will choose the best suited abrasive diamond pads or honing padsneeded to remove stains and scratches along with and state or the art machines to level the surface of the stone, removing imperfections and irregularities. Coarse grinding is initially applied to address significant damage, followed by finer grinding to achieve a smoother, more even surface. This step prepares the stone for subsequent polishing, creating a foundation for the enhancement of its natural beauty.

Grinding – Leveling the Canvas:

  • Assessment: Our skilled technicians conduct a detailed assessment to identify imperfections and uneven surfaces.
  • Coarse Grinding: For significant damage, coarse grinding is applied to level the surface, removing scratches, deep stains, and irregularities.
  • Fine Grinding: Finer grinding follows, creating a smooth foundation for the subsequent polishing stage.


Grout Cleaning:

Grout is porous, making it susceptible to staining. Liquid spills, oils, and other substances can penetrate the grout, leading to discoloration. Cleaning helps remove existing stains and prevents further discoloration, keeping the grout lines looking fresh.


Apply the Ph Cleaner to Grout Lines:

    • Using a grout cleaning brush, our technician will apply cleaner directly onto the grout lines. Ensuring that the cleaner covers the entire grout surface.

Scrub the Grout:

    • Scrubbing the grout lines vigorously with the brush. Focusing on stains or discolored areas. Use a back-and-forth or circular motion to effectively remove dirt and grime. Rinse the brush frequently.

Rinse and Wipe Down:

    • After scrubbing, we rinse the grout lines with warm water and our state of the are machines. Ensuring that the area is thoroughly rinsed to prevent residue build-up.


Polishing is the artful process of refining the surface of natural stone to achieve a smooth, glossy, and reflective finish. It follows grinding in the stone restoration journey. Polishing involves the use of progressively finer abrasive materials and compounds, or buffing pads combined with specialized state of the are machinery, to gently bring back the color and brightness of the stone. This reveals a brilliant and lustrous surface that showcases the unique characteristics of the stone. Polishing can be tailored to achieve different levels of sheen, from a matte finish to a high-gloss shine, depending on the client’s preferences and the intended use of the stone surface.

Matte Polish Finish: For a natural, unvarnished appearance, ideal for walls, staircases, and areas desiring a lower sheen.

  • Semi-Gloss Polish Finish: Strikes a balance, allowing natural beauty to shine through while providing moderate sheen. Perfect for floors, countertops, and areas requiring a harmonious allure.
  • Gloss Polish Finish: The epitome of sheen, offering maximum protection against staining and wear. Popular for hard stone surfaces like marble, it graces floors and countertops with a high-polished allure.


Sealing is a crucial step in the stone restoration process, serving as a protective shield against stains, moisture, and other environmental factors. After the stone has been cleaned, repaired, ground, and polished, a high-quality sealant is applied to create an impermeable barrier on the surface. This barrier prevents liquids and contaminants from penetrating the stone, reducing the risk of stains and deterioration. The choice of sealant depends on the type of stone and its intended use. Proper sealing not only enhances the stone’s durability but also preserves its newly restored appearance for an extended period.


  1. Stain Prevention:
    • Oil and Water-Based Stains: Natural stones, especially porous ones like marble and granite, are susceptible to stains from substances like oils, water, and various liquids. Sealing creates a protective barrier, preventing these substances from penetrating the stone and causing permanent stains.
  1. Moisture Protection:
    • Water Damage: Natural stones can absorb moisture, leading to issues like efflorescence, discoloration, and even structural damage. Sealing prevents water absorption, safeguarding the stone from internal damage caused by moisture penetration.
  1. Enhanced Durability:
    • Wear and Tear: High-traffic areas or surfaces that endure daily use are prone to wear and tear. Sealing strengthens the stone’s surface, making it more resistant to abrasion, scratches, and other forms of physical damage.
  1. Mold and Mildew Prevention:
    • Humid Environments: In damp or humid conditions, natural stone can become a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Sealing inhibits the growth of these microorganisms by denying them the necessary conditions for development.


In summary, natural stone restoration is a proactive measure to address wear, damage, and environmental impacts, preserving the timeless beauty and functionality of these surfaces. It not only revitalizes the stone but also safeguards it against future challenges, ensuring a lasting and impressive presence in any space.
