A Marble Vanity Top in Toms River Looks Stunning Thanks to Our Stone Cleaning Crew
October 04, 2022A homeowner in Toms River, NJ, was concerned about the vanity top in his master bathroom. It seemed like the vanity's black marble surface had gone through decades of neglect despite being less than five years old. Significant scratch marks were marring the stone, and even the original parts of the surface felt rough to the touch. The homeowner had tried different cleaning solutions, but he started fearing that his efforts only worsened the problem.
Because of this, he decided to contact Sir Grout Central New Jersey as soon as he heard of us from one of his colleagues. The homeowner visited our website, checked out picture gallery, and read all our online content related to stone restoration. At last, he decided to call our specialists to ask about our stone cleaning in Toms River. By the end of the phone call, the homeowner had scheduled an in-home evaluation with our crew.
Our specialists arrived at his house a few days later, as scheduled. After entering the bathroom, they started assessing the vanity's surface, noticing all the scratches and the accumulated damage on the stone. Because of all the marks, the marble's black color had faded to a dull, dark gray in some parts. This led our specialists to suspect that the countertop had been exposed to acidic cleaners multiple times. The homeowner confirmed these suspicions when he listed all the products he'd used as he tried to clean the marble surface. Our techs explained that these products could deteriorate the stone's grain and cause discoloration after repeated use. To undo the damage, our specialists proposed to clean the countertop with their equipment, followed by a thorough polishing and sealing service. The client was on board with this plan and didn't wait any longer to schedule a new appointment for the restoration.
On the agreed-upon date, our crew returned with all the necessary equipment. They started by cleaning the marble surface with a pH-neutral cleaner. Thanks to its high-quality ingredients, our product quickly removes all kinds of stains without wearing off the color of natural stone surfaces. It's the ideal solution to preserve marble against spills, mold, product residue, etc. Our techs removed the loose dirt with a high-speed scrubber and prepared for the next part of the process.
For this, they meticulously honed every inch of the vanity top with various sets of diamond pads, gradually increasing the level of grit until they'd worked through all the marks on the stone. At this point, the marble surface had acquired a matte finish, so our specialists started polishing the vanity with special powders to reach the desired level of shine.
When it was smooth and glowing, our techs went on to seal the marble surface with Stone Armor. Our unique sealant guarantees the most outstanding results for the maintenance of natural stone, protecting its surface from water, fungi, mold, mildew, and other harmful substances. With our sealant in place, this marble vanity top would stay beautiful and shiny for months on end with nothing more than weekly cleaning sessions.
Our specialists called the client back into the bathroom, and the sight of his vanity overjoyed him. The black marble had regained all its former beauty, and its shine lit up the whole room. The client thanked our specialists for their services, excited by the prospect of showing the results to his guests.
The client asked for additional cleaning advice, and our techs were happy to share all their tips and recommendations. They told him that pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner remove all the risk of generic cleaners, from the discoloration to the health problems caused by chemical fumes. Our specialists recommended avoiding steel wool and other abrasive tools to avoid new scratches on the stone's delicate surface. A clean towel or terry cloth would work much better at seamlessly removing any stickiness from the vanity. Vanity tops often get damped by spills, sprayed water, etc. Our specialists reminded the client to check for any drops of water and ensure the bathroom is well-ventilated. Moisture buildup brings many problems that make hard surface maintenance tricky for homeowners. The client thanked our specialists and promised to follow all their recommendations in his cleaning routine.
