The "WOW" of your marble restoredThe misconception that since marble is a stone it does not need any maintenance is far from the truth. All marble needs some type of care and maintenance. Though some marbles are harder than others, marble of all types is generally a softer, calcium-based stone, susceptible to scratching, etching (acid damage), and general dulling of its appearance if not maintained properly. Marble care needs vary depending upon type, purpose, finish and location, which is why it is important to work specifically with stone restoration professionals if it is in need of care.
RefinishingIs your marble floor too dull or too shiny? Some areas more glossy than others? Or maybe you just want a change of pace? We can restore the polished or matte finish you love, even-out an inconsistent finish, or change the finish from polished to honed (matte or satin) or vice versa. Whatever your issue, or your preference, we can deliver a beautifully restored or changed marble finish.
Lippage Removal / GrindingUneven tiles don't just diminish the look of your floors, they can also create a trip hazard. Diamond Stone and Tile Care South can grind away the excess stone (a process called lippage removal) to create a flat, level surface using state-of-the art diamond grinding technology. This can also be done to bring all tiles more level with grout lines to facilitate easier cleaning.
Marble Stain RemovalNo matter how careful you are, spills can still manage to happen. And sometimes spills become stains. Whether you are seeking guidance on how to remove a stain yourself or want us to take care of it for you, we are experts in removing stains from marble. Something to note: please do your research before starting any DIY stain removal process, since certain cleaning solutions may damage your stone or even permanently set the stain.
Deep CleaningAre you familiar with the adage, "It's easier to keep something clean than it is to get it that way?" Your marble surfaces are no exception. Marble is easier to keep clean with periodic professional deep cleaning services, and the proper day-to-day cleaning methods and products. We are happy to instruct you in the proper care methods and products that will help keep your marble surfaces looking great. Diamond Stone and Tile Care South also provides regularly scheduled maintenance programs, upon request.
Sealing MarbleOnce your marble floors, showers, tub surrounds, walls, and other marble surfaces are cleaned and restored, we highly recommend you have Diamond Stone and Tile Care South seal them to enhance their stain resistance. While most stains can be removed, marble stain removal can be a time consuming, expensive and often frustrating process. Sealing represents an inexpensive, preventative measure against marble stain damage.
Marble RepairDo you have chips, holes or cracks in your marble surfaces? Before you replace, consider taking advantage of our expert marble repair services. Diamond Stone and Tile Care South can fill holes and fix marble cracks and chips, blending the repair site with the surrounding area, and honing and polishing it to match the surrounding finish.
Marble Tile ReplacementAlthough it is rare for a marble tile to be beyond repair, sometimes tile replacement is necessary. Diamond Stone and Tile Care South's craftsmen can, in many cases, remove your affected tile without damaging neighboring tiles, install the replacement tile, level it with the surrounding area, and then match the finish as closely as possible.
