We got our tiles more than 25 years ago. We were told that we had a solvent sealer on our tiles, which apparently most companies wouldn't be able to strip off. However we rang a couple of places to check them out. No luck. A friend of mine recommended Tile Cleaners. We rang the guys and they agreed to have a look the next day. We decided to go ahead with the job after getting a satisfactory quote. Tile Cleaners team stripped and resealed our old tiles. We are very grateful for your help guys. Thank you again.

What is Grinding?

Grinding your bluestone will smooth out all imperfections and open a new layer upon which it is possible to build a quality honed or polished finish.

Tile Cleaners Sydney® technicians grind away the surface of your bluestone tiles until the floor is smooth, with no lippage or uneven tiles

Grinding removes deep scratches, stains, etch marks and other contaminations resulting in a very smooth and even surface.

Resurfacing is an extremely skilled task requiring patience and experience. If not done correctly and to the right depths it may result in the scratches and impurities being enhanced.

Is there a difference between Grinding, Honing and Polishing?

Grinding, honing and polishing are all similar processes, and refer tothe different levels the bluestone is ground back to using diamond headed grinding pads in order to achieve a particular desired finish.

"All three processes refer to using an abrasive to alter a stones look and feel"

When your bluestone surfaces become damaged, you will need an experienced professional with specialised machinery to achieve your particular desired finish. Tile Cleaners Sydney® technicians use a number of professional processes and techniques to restore the true beauty of your bluestone.

Don't Replace……..Restore!!


Grinding isan aggressive approach to refinishing bluestone using a metal-bonded and heavy weighted diamond grit floor buffer that removes deep scratches, etching and lippage. The porosity of the bluestone will be noticeable, and the process is typically dust-free.


Honing leaves a smoother flat finish with a matte look and is often completed following the grinding phase. Honing is a much less aggressive approach than grinding, although similar, the materials and grits used are not as coarse, and many projects may also start with honing and skip the grinding phase. Tile Cleaners Sydney® honing process removes minor to moderate scratches and etch marks in a gentler manner. When completed properly, honed bluestone leaves a smooth and even finish.


After the honing phase, a higher (finer) grit and sometimes combinations of higher grit compounds are used to bring out a shine in your stone during the polishing process. This finest grade of the grinding process is used to achieve a sleek, polished look.

Commercial Grinding

We are equipped to restore factory and hotel finishes for granite, bluestone, marble, travertine and limestone surfaces with our experienced technicians and state-of-the-art equipment producing excellent results, every time.

Commercial spaces such as shopping centres, apartment blocks and hotels frequently experience dullness and damage in areas with high traffic. The best results in restoring the floors back uniform appearance throughout is often achieved by grinding, honing and polishing.

Lippage Removal

Lippage is the point where tiles meet at the grout line and is often not completely level. If you run your hand over the grout line you will most likely notice a definite dip from one tile to the next.

Sometimes this can be very uneven with a tile being a few millimetres higher than the adjacent tile,this is known as lippage.

The first stage in the grinding process removes any lippage so that the floor is completely even and flat at the grout lines. This is achieved with metal bonded diamond plates which coarsely grind away at the bluestone leaving it flat, with a very rough finish.

The next step is to repeat this process with finer grades of resin bonded diamond pads. Each grade of pad is progressively finer which serves to remove the scratches which are left in the stone by the preceding grade. The number of grades Tile Cleaners Sydney® technicians use will depend on the type of bluestone and your desired finish.

Grinding Benefits

Regular Care

Once spillsoccur on the surface of yourbluestone, wipe themaway immediately.

You shouldn’t use regular soap as it can seep through the surface and potentially darken the area, instead use mild abrasive household detergent. After mopping, dry the floor with a cotton towel to remove any remaining moisture and prevent water spots.

A surface with a matte or honed finish needs to be as a rule, periodically cleaned and re-sealed by a professional and should be sealed using a deep penetrating, impregnating sealer which avoids staining, reduces the effect of soiling and results in regular cleaning becoming easier.
