Stone Cleaning Scottsdale
We were called out to inspect this floor and see if it could be saved. Being referred by a local design showroom, we were aware that this family had already been shopping for new flooring. Here you can see the Kitchen, the worst area in most homes, and this was no exception.
We were confident that the problem lay heavily in the maintenance products used, mostly sticky, over the counter cleaners. If you have read previous posts, you know that this is not a major concern as we are generally able to fully restore the stone to its original beauty. This case was no different.
Because the Kitchen was the major concern, we cleaned it first. This Scottsdale family opted to have us reseal the travertine. That involves allowing the floor to dry and application of an impregnating sealer. For brevity’s sake, an impregnating sealer fills the stones capillaries so that it is much more difficult to stain. It is preferred over topical sealers that leave a coat over the stone as these types tend to have many maintenance issues.
After The Kitchen came the Living room. We had already moved the furniture out and cleaned and sealed the areas where they belonged. As you can see, we cleaned areas much larger than the furniture, that way we are able to overlap the cleaning. This ensures no areas are missed or improperly sealed.
