Natural Stone Honing


It is commonly seen that the stone floor wears out after a period of use. With furniture scratches, dirt brought in by foot traffic and etches left by spilling of corrosive liquids, the stone starts looking dull, making it increasingly difficult to keep it looking beautiful with mere wiping and mopping. However, we can help you in getting the old gloss of your floor back, no matter how old it is. We guarantee that you will fall in love with the results that Marble Pro’s Polishing & Restoration offers through its expert floor refurbishing services.

One of the steps involved in the overall process of refurbishing any type of floor is honing. It involves rubbing of particles of diamond or silicon carbide to remove the small particles of residual stone on the floor surface. The dust particles and etches covering the surface are also removed, resulting in a much smoother façade. So, honing can be considered one of the most important processes during the finishing of floors.

A natural question that might come to you would be regarding the need of honing in the first place. Any residential or commercial space looks really beautiful only if it has a clean, polished floor. A matte floor might be liked by some, but it cannot lend the same brilliant and sharp look to a room that a shining stone floor does.

But maintaining this polished look is difficult over a long period, especially if a particular section of the floor witnesses significant foot traffic. The dirt carried in from outside by feet gradually gets pressed into the floor, creating etches, which can be very damaging to the stone. This is why most owners of stone floorings prefer honing, as it makes the floor surface less prone to etches from foot traffic or even spilling of corrosive liquids. A smooth surface also removes the need for regular long cleaning processes. With honing, you are reducing the time spent on maintenance in general, which otherwise is an essential requirement for a beautiful stone floor surface.

Honing is needed if the stone floor base has water marks, scratches, wear signs or stains. It does not offer the regular extra glazing and mirror-like feel, but definitely gives you a muted yet smooth surface.
