Limestone After

Homeowner Wants Finish Changed

The owner of this beautiful limestone floor in an Austin, TX home was frustrated, because the floor had a dull honed finish. She really wanted to have a highly polished finish. A previous service provider made the mistake of applying a wax coating to achieve the look our client wanted. This coating looked gorgeous at first, but with time and use, the coating accentuated scratches, embedded dirt, and other damage. It had become yellowed and really diminished the elegance of the limestone. The owner wanted to see a stunning high polish on the floor, and she called Gold Standard Floor Care to see if they could correct the improper methods the previous service provider had used. They assured her that they could help.

Glossy, Reflective Finish Achieved

First, Gold Standard Floor Care completely stripped the wax coating from the limestone and thoroughly cleaned the residue from the tiles and grout lines. Once the wax was removed, they honed the floor using diamond resin pads to remove a thin upper layer of the stone, where the damage appeared, revealing the brand new stone underneath. They polished the limestone floor to a glossy, mirror-like finish. The final step was to apply a clear penetrating, impregnating sealer. The owner was very pleased to see the highly polished limestone restored with dramatic reflectivity and no wax coatings.
