Our Limestone Polishing Services

Whilst our stone cleaning service will remove surface dirt, it is often worth considering the additional benefits of a restoration service. Limestone polishing or resurfacing will not only restore the beauty of your floor but also ensure a longer-lasting finish.

When we resurface a stone floor in this way, a fresh layer of stone will be revealed. This means that not only will you have a clean floor, but the stone will have a look a lot closer to when it was first laid. Resurfacing in this way will remove surface scratches, dulling and etch marks on the surface of the stone. It will regain the colours and properties of that initial stone. This means that once sealed, it will retain its finish for a lot longer than a floor that has been simply cleaned.

The limestone polishing or resurfacing process begins with removing any stains, scratches and worn areas of the stone by gently removing the top layer of the stone surface using resin bonded diamonds. These are attached to a rotary machine with a weight of up to 160kg. The rotation and the pressure created will scratch the floor providing a light abrasion.

The polishing process is all about creating tighter and tighter scratch patterns that reduce the size of the pores and capillaries in the stone, creating a natural shine. Your limestone floor can be resurfaced to a honed, mid or high shine depending on your preference.

Limestone polishing or resurfacing is suitable for floors that are in need of renovating after years of wear and tear but is also applicable to correct damage at any point from installation.

For stone that is more deeply scratched, or shows uneven heights at the grout joint (lippage), we can offer deeper restoration services too and you can read more about this following the link below.

Maintenance

We follow up with all of our clients around 1 year to 18 months after our initial visit, based on our professional opinion of when further work is likely to be necessary. We can also provide a price for maintenance immediately on request. However, we would still recommend re-visiting before commencing work to re-familiarise ourselves with your stone

Keeping your natural stone looking stunning is something that we are passionate about. If you have had your stone treated or restored by the Athena Stonecare team then you will have been left with a guide explaining how to care for it.

What Our Clients Say

Testimonial

The professional who inspected the floor was clearly most knowledgeable and he also actioned the work subsequently. A date was agreed and the work was carried out with care and attention and minimum disruption. The floor now looks exactly as it did when initially installed. I have no hesitation recommending Athena Stone and will call them myself when another part of the floor needs refreshing.

I wanted to leave a review for Danielle. She went above and beyond to help find alternative solutions so I could get my worktops/ tiles restored in the timeframe I need to, even following up afterwards to see how things panned out. Excellent communication!

Athena Stonecare is a great firm and I recommend it highly. Dave, Becca and the team could not have been more friendly and helpful, and they left our stone floor looking as good as new. I also thought their quote was very reasonable, given the amount of work involved.
