Limestone Honed, Polished, and Sealed

  • Limestone-Before-Restoration
    Notice how the acidic substances reacted with the calcium in the limestone to create a cloudy, blotchy haze on the finish.
  • Limestone-After-Restoration
    After professional honing and polishing, the finish on this limestone looked elegant once again.

Problem

The homeowners had been cleaning their limestone floor with vinegar and other inappropriate cleansers that were damaging their once beautiful floor. Its luster, its color and shine had all but disappeared.

Solution

First we honed the ten-year old limestone floor to remove the surface damage. Our technicians then polished the floor to a high-gloss finish and applied a premium impregnator sealer. The homeowners were very pleased with the results of our work, which is evident in the AFTER photo. Before leaving, we supplied the homeowners with proper cleaning instructions so their floor would remain beautiful for years to come.
