Have your natural stone countertops, bar tops, table and other furniture tops lost their shine? Are they stained, scratched, or etched? What about chips or worse yet, cracks or breaks? Our technicians can resolve all of these issues, as well as provide cleaning and sealing services (when necessary), and education in the appropriate cleaning products for your specific needs and surfaces.
Some natural stone types are more porous than others, and the more porous a natural stone is, the more susceptible it is to staining. Your countertops will be easier to keep clean with periodic professional deep cleaning services, using non-acidic, highly-effective cleaning solutions. Once your tops are cleaned and restored, we may recommend you have us seal them to enhance their stain resistance. We say, “may” because not all stone needs to be sealed. Highly polished stone may not even take an impregnating sealer. But, if sealing is recommended, know that sealing represents an inexpensive, preventative measure against stain damage, because it buys you time to wipe up spills before they become stains.
Stains happen. Sometimes there’s just no way around it. If you find yourself with a stained countertop, don’t hesitate to contact us. DEZ Services can resolve most stains in all types of natural stone. In many cases we can simply guide you with what to do. Let us get your counters looking beautiful again.
Many foods and drinks are acidic, and while most granite is not acid sensitive, many other types of natural stone are, and this can result in etching. Though some people mistake etching for a stain or “water spots,” it is actually acid damage to the surface of the stone. Fortunately, the skilled technicians at DEZ Services can remove this damage, as well as scratch marks and dullness, and refinish your countertops to like-new condition. We will also educate you in ways to prevent this kind of damage, such as always using cutting boards, preferably ones with a groove around the edge to prevent overflow of liquids.
Can you tell what part of the counter you work on most because it’s duller than the rest? Do you have etching damage from acidic substances?
Maybe you accidently slid a pan across the surface or someone forgot to use a cutting board and now you have scratches on your beautiful countertop. It’s the sort of thing that can stand out on an otherwise pristine countertop and just drive you nuts!
Or maybe it’s just time for a change of pace? DEZ Services honing and polishing services can restore the evenly polished glory of your countertops, change that highly polished finish to a honed (matte or satin) one or vice versa, delivering just the look you want.
Pots and other cooking implements can be heavy and no matter how durable the surface, if you drop something on it at just the right (or the wrong!) angle – bang! Now you’ve got a chip. Or worse yet, your countertop has become cracked or even broken. DEZ Services can expertly repair most scratches, chips and cracks in a seamless manner.
