Limestone Cleaning & Restoration
We, at The Floor Cleaning Experts, provide incredibly thorough and high quality Limestone Cleaning & Restoration in Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater.
Limestone is a soft sedimentary stone that can be very porous and doesn’t polish to a bright shine like a denser marble floor. Limestone cleaning and restoration uses a combination of limestone grinding and honing to even the limestone floor and hot water extraction cleaning of the limestone floor to remove the build up of soil in the pores of the limestone floor.
Lippage removal is done with a dual plenary grinding machine using aggressive metal diamond limestone polishing plates. After the limestone floor leveling the stone is then honed and polished to the desired finish.
Limestone scratch removal requires limestone honing. The limestone is cut and polished with multiple grits of diamond to remove scratches and restore the limestone floor to an even shine. This gives limestone a nice matte finish.
Limestone Dry Polishing:
Dull limestone floors need limestone polishing to restore their lost luster. Buffing limestone with high speed diamond embedded polishing pads restores the lost shine and luster without a powdery wet mess.
Limestone Powder Polishing:
To get limestone really shiny limestone powder polishing melts the edges off of the ultra tiny scratches left from the dry polishing. This deepens the luster considerably. Powder polishing limestone uses a paste of polishing powder and water scrubbed by a weighted limestone polishing machine.
Limestone floor cleaner is scrubbed into the floor with a low speed scrubber with a medium bristle brush to work the detergent into the pores of the limestone floor and then rinsed with a hot water extraction machine to draw the dirt and detergent from deep in the pores of the limestone.
Limestone Floor Buffing:
Limestone floor buffing with hogs hair pads dry the floor and remove any water spots giving limestone a clean clear surface.
