Your home or commercial space’s beautiful natural stone flooring cannot be properly cleaned and disinfected with regular mopping. This is because natural stones—like marble, travertine, granite, and quartzite—are naturally porous. This means your flooring can absorb liquids and spills, making it a natural breeding ground for bacteria and allergens.
To keep your stone flooring in tip-top condition and allergen-free, it needs to undergo regular maintenance and repairs. Aside from deep cleaning and restoration, a sealant also needs to be applied annually to create an effective barrier against stains, dirt, bacteria, and allergens.
If you’re looking for a reputable natural stone cleaning and restoration service, look no further than H Town Steam. Our highly trained and experienced technicians will prepare, clean, and seal your natural stone surfaces—including floors and countertops— restoring them to pristine condition.
While natural stone flooring is durable and can make rooms look classy, they also require special maintenance. For example, you cannot clean your stone flooring with household cleaners that contain acidic agents or vinegar, as these will damage the flooring. High-traffic areas are also best protected with floor mats to safeguard them from dirt, abrasion, and debris.
Specialized knowledge, equipment, and training is needed to maintain these surfaces. This is why you cannot hire just any janitorial or cleaning company to clean and restore your natural stone flooring. They might use the wrong cleaning agents and equipment, leading to very costly damages.
These risks are eliminated when you hire the natural stone restoration experts at H Town Steam. Our highly-trained technicians have more than 10 years of experience in natural stone restoration and will not leave the premises until you’re fully satisfied with the results.
We’ll use professional-grade equipment, tools, and cleaning agents to deep clean and seal your stone flooring. All of the dirt, bacteria, debris, and allergens trapped deep inside the pores of your flooring will be removed. This is followed by the application of a sealant to prevent these elements from re-infiltrating your flooring.
With precision and careful attention to detail, we’ll repair chips and cracks, remove unsightly stains and scratches, and polish your refurbished stone to the desired shine.
There is no single way to correctly clean natural stone. In fact, the correct cleaning process and cleaning agents will depend on the type of stone and grout you have. Hence, the contractor you hire will need to have a solid understanding of the different restoration procedures for different materials.
Case in point: let’s compare granite to marble. Granite is much harder than marble, requiring it to be refinished multiple times once it becomes dull or scratched. Special equipment, polishing agents, and restoration techniques are needed to properly restore granite. Marble requires equally specialized treatment and proper refinishing requires the surface to be sanded down using resin diamond pads.
The technicians at H Town Steam offer customized cleaning and restoration procedures for granite and marble surfaces. Aside from properly cleaning natural stone, we’ll also customize the finish, depending on your preference. Standard finishes include highly polished, honed (i.e. a matted or satin finish), and variations in between.
Prized for its durability and elegant finish, travertine is commonly applied to flooring, countertops, shower and tub surrounds, as well as outdoor pavers for walkways and patios. Just like marble and granite, this natural stone requires specialized cleaning and restoration processes.
Travertine is naturally perforated, which makes it very porous. While the holes are filled in and finished by the manufacturer to create a uniform finish, the fillers can gradually loosen and fall out as a result of wear and tear.
To resolve this issue, our technicians will mix tints with fillers that blend with the appearance of the stone. This process, known as floating, evenly applies material to make the surface look new again. Once this process is complete, a honing and polishing step will be applied with diamond-impregnated pads. Finer grits will be applied each time to achieve the desired finish, whether that’s a soft matte or high gloss.

Cleaning, sealing, and polishing your stone flooring requires more than a mop and a bucket. Your knowledgeable H Town Steam contractor will use an array of specialized equipment to refurbish your floors and countertops.
