When your stone becomes dull and unattractive, the logical thing to do is to repair and restore the stone to its original lustre. However, the key to continuing to enjoy your investment, lies in establishing a regular maintenance program.
In large commercial projects where there is a high degree of foot traffic, periodic maintenance visits are necessary in order to prevent irreversible caused by salt residue, moisture and regular wear and tear.
The value of the Maintenance Phase is often underestimated; however, these visits are critical in detecting significant problems which can be addressed in a timely manner before they pose a serious concern.
Through periodic maintenance visits you will:
- Prevent irreversible damage;
- Minimize the cost of future restorations;
- Eliminate the need to wax;
- Prolong the life and beauty of your stone;
- Keep your floors looking luxurious and new for everyone to enjoy and admire; and
- Maintain the value of your property.

LOBBIES, ELEVATOR LOBBIES, BATHROOMS, POOLS, SHOWERS, WALLS AND ELEVATORS
Yearly visits are required in areas of heavy foot traffic to be able to address damage and deterioration to the stone in a timely manner before it becomes a more serious issue.
FLOORS, WALLS, SHOWERS, FIREPLACES, FURNITURE & PATIOS
Natural stone in showers are difficult to keep clean and also require frequent maintenance visits. Showers may show evidence of calcium build up, rust stains and mildew. Grout lines require a professional cleaning.
FOUNTAINS & STATUES
Fountains receive a tremendous amount of abuse. Water and rust stains quickly tarnish the look of the stone. Frequent sealers and stone polishes can help minimize the harsh affects of running water, chlorine and minerals.
Steps, both interior and exterior require a manual restorative/maintenance visit which is more time consuming and labour intensive. Maintenance may require removing safety grit tape and installing new tape. Flamed granite exterior surfaces also require regular maintenance and sealers to protect from harsh winter traffic.
