Westerkamp's Dry Carpet Cleaning has employed the most advanced procedures for natural stone cleaning, polishing and sealing hard surfaces. Specialty products and a high degree of knowledge and education is required for natural stone cleaning and maintenance. Each floor is carefully inspected, cleaned, polished and sealed according to the type and condition of flooring material. Below is our guide to hard surface cleaning for various surfaces.
This guide is designed to provide you, with the basic introduction into the cleaning, polishing and restoration of floors. All Hard Surfaces Floor can be divided in two categories: SYNTHETIC FLOORS and NATURAL STONE. We will cover only the floors used commonly in today’s market.
Is known as a calcium carbonate stone, and has been a
metamorphic rock, marble reacts to acids and give a high gloss
appearance. Is acid sensitive and scratches easily; most Marble
stone have veins, swirls and bands. For cleaning and restoration
purposes, the most suitable method should be chosen according to
the level of wear. It entails of removing the dirt, erasing
stains and restoring the worn protective layer. Below is a
before and after picture of our work.
The appearance of the Terrazzo is more uniform than most natural stone, and is available in tile forms or by 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 to several inches. The very good side about Terrazzo is it can be ground, honed and polish just like Marble and can be easily mistaken for Granite. Below is a before and after picture of our work.
Granite is an extremely hard natural stone with low porosity, normally given a polished finish. Granite is formed by volcanic action, and is an acid and scratch resistant as well. Granite paving is not usually treated; in this case waterproofing the material is recommended, especially if is laid in places such kitchens or bathrooms.
Travertine is limestone that has been formed in hot springs. Water movement caused the erosion of the stone creating numerous holes of varying sizes. A polished travertine will have its holes filled with color-matched Portland cement filler. These fillers do not take a high polish and therefore the overall polish tends to look blotchy.
Slate is classified as a “rough” material with a low absorption. Slate can be found both an interiors and exteriors, and rarely have a high polish unless a coating is placed on it. Slate can be a problem for it’s high content of clay, especially in wet areas, and can develop efflorescence easily. A good quality silicone impregnator sealer can protect the stone and generated more durability. A color enhanced can be applied also in this type of floor, to create a colorful look of the stone.
Flagstone is the term given to almost all-stone material cut into thin, irregular shapes. Found extensively on sidewalks, foyer entrance, pool decks, etc…, flagstone can be almost any material but is commonly the SANDSTONE type. Flagstone should not be ground and should only be cleaned and sealed.
