Limestone is similar to marble in that it is sensitive to acids and household cleaners containing chelating agents. It varies in hardness and sometimes will have fossil imprints. Carpet N Cleaning Company offers cleaning, honing, polishing, and sealing of limestone.

Marble is softer and more porous than most stone; it not only scratches easily, but also etches easily. Marble is sensitive to acids in many different food items (including citrus products, sodas, etc.) and the chelating agents in household cleaners. See the section marked maintenance for more on chelating agents. Carpet N Cleaning Company offers cleaning, polishing, and sealing of marble floors.

Travertine is limestone that has been formed by hot springs. Water movement caused erosion of the stone creating numerous holes of varying sizes. Travertine is similar to marble in that it can be polished, and is sensitive to acids and household cleaners with chelating agents. Carpet N Cleaning Company offers cleaning, honing, polishing, sealing and enhancement sealers for Travertine.

Terrazzo appears more uniform than most natural stones and is available in tile form or by a pouring application on the slab. Terrazzo is a mixture of Portland cement and marble chips; these chips can range in size from a fraction of an inch to as large as several inches. Carpet N Cleaning Company offers Terrazzo cleaning, polishing and sealing.

Granite is an extremely hard natural stone and is not as porous as other natural stones. Though not acid sensitive, prolonged use of household cleaners with chelating agents will cause streaking and can be a homeowner’s nightmare. Carpet N Cleaning Company offers cleaning and sealing of granite countertops and floors.

Slate is a fine-grained metamorphic stone usually black, gray or green. Slate is not acid sensitive but prolonged use of household cleaners with chelating agents can cause streaking and dullness. Carpet N Cleaning Company offers slate cleaning, sealing or enhancers that bring out the deep rich natural color of slate.

Ceramic Tile & Grout Cleaning Process

Pre-Inspection:
Technicians will make note of all challenging areas and set your expectations as well as come up with a solution for each area.

Area Preparation:
We will prepare the areas surrounding the tile, making sure not to disturb any carpeted or hardwood floors. At this point all furniture that will be cleaned under is moved.

Dry soil removal:
Our technicians thoroughly sweep and vacuum the entire area, maximizing the results we obtain. As in any cleaning process, dry soil removal is the most important.

Soil Suspension:
We use the highest quality products. The cleaning agent sprayed over the entire surface of your tile is the most scientifically advanced tile cleaner on the market.

Cleaning:
Complex and difficult areas are agitated manually with a brush and for really challenging heavy use areas, a mechanical rotating brush is employed. The entire floor is then cleaned using a state of the art self-contained pressure cleaning system known as the SX-12 floor cleaning tool.

Rinsing:
A rinse solution is used to balance the pH of your floor.

Sealing/Finishing:
The type of sealer and application varies on what surface it is being applied to.

Post-inspection:
Technicians will initiate a walk through and go over results before leaving.

 

Natural Stone Cleaning Processes

Pre-Inspection:
All Natural Stone cleaning and restoration as well as sealing jobs must be preceded by a thorough pre-inspection. Here we determine a customized care plan to meet your specific needs for your specific floor.

Preparation:
Because your home is important to you it is important to us; we will take the necessary precautions to protect all areas surrounding your floors with 24” plastic sheets and blue tape.

Diamond Grinding:
Stone that is etched, scuffed and scratched can be restored only by the use of mechanical abrasives underneath a rotary machine. Diamond abrasives resurface/remove a slight amount of stone (just enough to get below the etch marks and scratches). All diamond grinding is performed with the use of water to contain dust. The surfacing procedures that follow will determine the desired surface sheen.

Honing:
Stone is mechanically resurfaced using diamond abrasives and water to achieve a uniformly honed surface sheen. Filler within travertine stone that looks cloudy, splotchy or dirty becomes uniform with our finishing techniques. If desired, polished marble, granite, travertine or limestone can be mechanically honed to remove pre-existing surface polish.

Polishing:
Stone is mechanically finished to produce a high gloss shine. Very light etches, scuffs and scratches may be removed with the polishing process, but diamond grinding is needed if the stone surface has medium deep etches, scuffs and scratches.

Cleaning:
Cleaning Processes vary from floor to floor, many variables include make-up, maintenance, soiling conditions, traffic, use, etc… When cleaning any stone floor we use the most scientifically advanced cleaning products and the floor is then machine or hand scrubbed and brushed. Finally the new SX-12 floor cleaning tool, connected to a truck-mounted hot water extraction system is used, achieving maximum soil removal and best overall cleaning results.

Sealing and Enhancers:
We apply a clear impregnator to help protect the stone and make it easier to maintain. Depending on the stone type, an enhancer or high gloss protection can be applied.
