Natural Stone Polishing and Honing

Natural Stone Honing and Polishing

My extensive 6 stage cleaning process for natural stone honing and polishing is where the rubber meets the road, the icing on the cake; nay, the cherry on top. This is where you can look that 470 calorie, 31 grams of fat Tuxedo Cheesecake Factory, Cheesecake slice directly in the whip cream and say “I’m going to have my cake and eat it too.” Honing and polishing your stone can repair damage and restore your floor to brand new or even better than brand new condition, while adding new life to your home (and never-ending positive comments from all of your guests).

Honing Natural Stone

After a deep steam cleaning, honing is the means of “sanding” down  the surface of your natural stone (don’t worry...there is no dust involved here). During the honing process, we use diamond- impregnated pads to create a surface slurry and “sand” down the top layer of your stone to the level of the noted scratch(es). The results of honing alone are amazing, leaving a clean surface and a clear and consistent finish.

Polishing Natural Stone

Polishing takes the honing process to the next level...literally. Once the surface is prepped and the scratches and damage are disappeared, we can now polish your natural stone up to your most perfectly desired sheen (please note that this process is very much customizable). Like a fine piece of furniture, we utilize a series of 4 finer and finer diamond- impregnated polishing pads in order to achieve your dream floor. I insist on a free, no obligation demonstration to actually SHOW you the results first- hand and we can decide together what will work best for you and your particular floor.

Sealing Natural Stone

Once we have achieved your dream floor, we would highly recommend sealing it with a premium, water- based, impregnating, penetrating sealer to preserve and protect it from future damage.

At SUDS, We don’t cut corners, we clean them!
Polished stone before and after

We bought a new home and asked SUDS to come out and clean it for us before we moved in. He did the complete exterior and made it sparkling from windows to walls. He then completely cleaned, sealed, and polished our travertine floors. The house had been vacant for nearly 5 years and you can imagine the dust that had accumulated over that span. Now it looks like a new build. THANKS!”
