A Travertine Vanity Top in Marlboro Looks Gorgeous After Receiving Our Stone Polishing Services
November 10, 2022The travertine master vanity of this Marlboro home had been steadily losing shine for weeks. The homeowner had done all she could to preserve the stone, but its surface only grew duller as time went by. Her concerns only increased after discovering that parts of the vanity top had been chipped. Not only did this ruin the vanity's appearance, but it also posed new risks for the household members, with the cracks leaving their sharp ends exposed in parts of the vanity's flat surface.
The homeowner couldn't stand seeing her beautiful vanity top fall into such a state, so she set out to have it restored with the best stone polishing in Marlboro. She went online looking for hard surface restoration services in the area and came across Sir Grout Central New Jersey at the top of her search results. After reading through our list of services and perusing our picture gallery, she filled our website's "Request a Quote" form to ask for an in-home evaluation.
On the scheduled date, our techs visited the client's home and thoroughly inspected the vanity top. As they'd gleaned from the client's description, the travertine surface was in poor condition, with nothing to hide its dull appearance and the small cracks around the corners. When the client expressed her confusion about what could cause such damage on a well-maintained surface, our specialists explained that travertine is susceptible to deterioration when exposed to harsh ingredients, including soap-based formulas and acidic cleaners. Against all expectations, many of these products help dirt and external substances seep into the travertine's porous surface, causing discoloration on most types of natural stone. To solve the problem, our specialists offered to clean and polish the vanity's surface, doing caulk and crack repairs when necessary.
The client hired our restoration services after listening to our tech's explanation, so we returned a few days later to work on the vanity. First, our crew cleaned the entire surface with our signature pH-neutral cleaner. They removed any stains from the flat surface, leaving the stone spotless and more luminous. Our product guarantees a thorough cleaning, no matter the type of surface or the amount of dirt you need to get through. It removes mold, mildew, soap scum, dirt, and fluids without excessive scrubbing or the help of other cleaning formulas.
Our techs ran diamond honing pads all over the travertine surface for the next step. They gradually refined the surface, removing all the etch marks and giving the stone a nice matte finish. Then, they repeated the process with special polishing powders until the vanity gleaned from all sides. After completing the necessary repairs on the chipped areas, our techs had the vanity shining like it was brand new. Before calling the client to evaluate its unique appearance, they applied sealant all over the vanity's surface, enhancing its protection and simplifying daily maintenance.
The client was ecstatic when she saw the results, praising our work on the vanity and thanking our specialists for the restoration. She also promised to recommend Sir Grout Central New Jersey to all the people she knew in Marlboro, already excited at the prospect of showing the master vanity to her family and friends.
Our techs ended the appointment with additional cleaning recommendations for the client. As they explained, pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner are the most effective alternative to replace generic products. Our cleaner combines high-quality ingredients that keep natural stone surfaces spotless with minimal effort. It also rules out potential health risks for homeowners because it doesn't release any chemical fumes into the air. Vanity tops see a lot of activity and come in contact with multiple products, from soap to cosmetics. To preserve the stone against gradual damage, our specialists recommended cleaning any liquids left on the surface and around the sink with a towel or a terry cloth. Lastly, they reminded the client to open the windows and doors during the day to help the room's ventilation and prevent moisture buildup. Bathroom surfaces are already vulnerable to dampness, so it's important to keep them as dry as possible when there's no one around to keep an eye on them.
