Testimonials

I noticed that some of the tiles in my bathroom walls were loose and the grout was coming off. I am a very busy so kept on postponing calling someone to fix it. One day I got home and the loose tiles were lying broken on the floor. Can you imagine my frustration? I rang my brother in panic and he gave me Tile Cleaners' contact details. I rang them straight away. The guys told me I needed a tiler and professional regrouting work done so I thought it would take ages to fix my problem. However they organized the work very well. I had my tiles fixed on Friday night the same week and the entire bathroom regrouted on Saturday. Thank you some much for your quick help; it was such a relief.

What is Grinding?

Grinding your granite surfaces will smooth out imperfections and open a new layer of your stone upon which it is possible to build a high quality honed or polished finish.

Grinding will remove deep scratches, stains and other contaminations from your granite, resulting in a very smooth and even surface, able to reflect light more consistently. Grinding will also remove any lippage, the term used for uneven tiles which can occur after a typical installation.

Resurfacing is an extremely skilled task that requires patience and experience. If not done properly and to the right depth it may only enhance the scratches and impurities.

Is there a difference between Grinding, Honing and Polishing?

Grinding, honing and polishing are similar processes, and refer to different levels the surfaces are ground back to using diamond head pads. It is important to note that all three refer to the process of using an abrasive to smooth back a stone.

One of the first things people will often notice when entering your home or business are the surfaces. When your granite surfaces become damaged from every day usage, and improper care, you will need an expert to restore the life back to those surfaces. Tile Cleaners Sydney® technicians use a number of professional processes and techniques to return your granite to its true beauty.

Grinding: An aggressive approach to refinishing granite, using a metal-bonded and diamond grit heavy weighted floor buffer to remove deep scratches and lippage. The porosity of the granite still remains noticeable, and this process is typically dust-free.

Honing: This leaves a smooth flat finish with a matte look. Often completed after the grinding phase, this method is a much less aggressive approach than grinding. Although similar, the materials and grits used are not as coarse as with grinding. Many projects also may start with honing and skip the grinding phase. Tile Cleaners Sydney® honing process is able to remove minor to moderate scratches and etch marks in a softer manner. When done properly, honing the granite will result in a smooth and even finish.

Polishing: After the honing phase, a higher grit and sometimes combinations of higher grit compounds will be 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.

Lippage Removal

Lippage refers to uneven surfaces that occurs when stone or tiles are not laid to a uniform level. By running your hand over the grout line you will often notice a definite dip. Sometimes this can be very uneven with a tile being a few millimetres higher than the adjacent tile. Tile Cleaners Sydney® diamond grinding process will remove lippage, leaving the granite floor completely even and flat at the grout lines. This is achieved with metal bonded diamond plates which coarsely grind away at the stone leaving it flat. The next step is usually to repeat this process with finer pads, with each grade becoming progressively finer, the number of grades Tile Cleaners Sydney® technicians use depends on the type of stone and the type of finish you require, usually a honed or polished, glossy finish.

Benefits of Grinding

If your granite is damaged from etching and scratching, grinding will provide a beautiful end result. Don’t go through the pain and cost of having slightly worn granite re-tiled.

Grinding will:

  • Smooth uneven tiles
  • Remove deep stains that can't be removed by cleaning
  • Remove trip hazards
  • Remove imperfections
  • Restore the natural shine of stone
  • Enhance colour features in the stone

Regular Care

Natural stone is one of the most beautiful surfaces anyone can have in their home or office. However, many varieties can easily scratch in high foot traffic areas. A regular maintenance program is vital if your surfaces are to retain their beauty.

Once liquids spill on the surface of your granite, wipe it immediately. To clean stone, you should never use regular soap as it can seep through the surface and darken the area, instead use mildly abrasive household detergent. Never use vinegar. The acid in vinegar damages, actually etches and removes the surface of many stone types. After mopping, dry the floor with a cotton towel or use a sh-mop to remove the moisture and prevent water spots.

Natural stone can become quickly etched, or corroded by acidic materials upon contact by common household substances such as soft drink, tea, citrus juice and acidic cleaning products. 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 with a deep penetrating, impregnating sealer, which avoids staining and reduces the effect of soiling.

Australian made non-toxic Deepshield® range of impregnating sealers create a barrier between the pores of your stone and potential stains. Don't allow an accident to permanently stain your beautiful surfaces. Sealing is the first important step towards protecting your valuable surfaces from stains.

    A deep penetrating impregnating sealer will protect your granite from water and oil based stains by chemically bonding with the surface pores leaving a long lasting, breathable protective barrier. An impregnating sealer results in easier regular cleaning while protecting your granite surface and grout from absorbing stains for up to 15 years. Tile Cleaners Sydney® are proud to be accredited applicators of Australia's Deepshield™ Gold based on the latest fluoro-bond technology and specifically engineered for denser surfaces. A penetrating impregnating transparent sealer enters the pore structure of your granite and once cured, will not alter the appearance of your granite tile or stone.

    Tile Cleaners Sydney® technicians are experts at applying all types of sealer and will ensure your granite looks its absolute best. Our technicians can apply a topical sealer when especially required to create a high gloss, satin sheen or matte finish to your surfaces. Topical sealers can also helpful in situations where your old solvent based sealer can't be completely removed or when required to hide certain types of damage. Topical sealers usually have a life expectancy of around 3 years.

    You can easily test how porous your granite is by applying a drop of water to the surface and watching how the water is absorbed. You can then see how any type of water based stain can be absorbed by your granite tile surface and grout
