Natural Stone Care
Your home's beautiful stone surfaces deserve the best professional care. TMG's high-quality, proven stone cleaning process gives you just that! First, our experienced technicians will complete a detailed inspection of your home's stone surfaces and then they will recommend the best overall cleaning process. For most surfaces the treatment may involve the following steps:
- Preparation and pre-cleaning surfaces including masking of non-treatment areas
- Pre-sealing - In some cases, to maintain surface as dry as possible
- Honing - Using a laboratory-developed and field-tested combination of abrasive compounds, cleaning agents and grease cutters, the stone surface is gently honed to remove scratches, etches, and wear marks.
- Polish - After a thorough rinse following the honing process, special machinery and compounds are used to bring original shine back to treated stone surfaces.
- Sealing - One or more coats of special sealant are applied and buffed, to protect against future staining.

What You Can to to preserve your stone investment
It is best to dry dust mop your floors frequently. Since sand, dirt and grit are the main culprits of damage to floors due to their abrasiveness, floor mats will aide in minimizing the damage. Always apply a neutral PH stone cleaner, mild dishwashing soap and warm water. Rinse the surface thoroughly after washing with the cleaning solution and dry with a terry cloth towel. If you leave residue from the cleaner, just repeat the cleaning process and make sure to change the water frequently.
Sealers do breakdown overtime, whether it be from heavy traffic, harsh cleaners or the constant penetrating outside light. As the sealer breaks down, so does the protection on your stone leaving the surface vulnerable to staining. It is recommended that you seal your stone, tile and grout surfaces every 1-2 years.
