The Restoration Process: Tailored to Your Granite
Granite is a unique material, and no two pieces are exactly alike. This uniqueness demands a customized approach to cleaning, restoring, and sealing. While the general steps in the restoration process remain consistent, Fuller Stone Care pays special attention to the specific needs of your granite surfaces. Here’s an overview of the typical restoration journey.
Starting with a Deep Clean
Every restoration begins with a thorough cleaning to remove dirt, algae, mildew, surface stains, and any residues from previous treatments. For exterior granite surfaces, a precisely adjusted pressure washer set to the correct temperature is often used. This initial clean allows for a clearer assessment of the granite’s condition and the extent of restoration required.
If your granite’s main issue is staining, the next step involves targeted stain removal. The depth and nature of the stain will dictate the method used, ranging from diamond abrasive compounds specifically designed for granite to specialized products or poultices. Successfully removing stains paves the way for further restoration efforts.
Repairing Cracks and Chips
Despite its strength, granite is not immune to physical damage such as cracks, chips, or natural imperfections that may detract from its appearance. Fuller Stone Care employs high-quality epoxies to fill and repair these blemishes, followed by a meticulous polishing process. This approach ensures the repairs are nearly invisible, restoring the seamless beauty of your granite.
Polishing and Sealing: The Finishing Touches
The final steps in granite restoration involve polishing and sealing. Dustless polishing techniques are utilized to eliminate any lingering scratches, dull spots, etch marks, or other imperfections. This not only enhances the stone’s natural shine but also prepares it for the sealing process. Sealing the granite reduces the size of its pores, making the surface less susceptible to staining and easier to clean in the future. This not only prolongs the life of your granite but also maintains its aesthetic appeal.
Granite restoration is an intricate process that revitalizes the natural beauty and integrity of your stone surfaces. Whether your granite needs a simple refresh or more extensive repairs, Fuller Stone Care is equipped to handle the task with expertise and care. Ready to restore the elegance of your granite?
