The Right Stone for Bar/Restaurant Owners

As a bar or restaurant owner, or a restaurant owner with a bar, you want to choose the ideal stone to offer an aesthetically pleasing environment for your guests and achieve a long-lasting functionality for your business. The right stone can make all the difference in the visual appeal of your bar while your servers are offering up flights, cocktails, appetizers, and meals to your patrons.

The perfect stone for your bar/restaurant showcases your establishment’s energy, delivers style and function, and greets your customers. There are several options available from natural stone to engineered products. Let’s uncover the one that will best suit the needs of your bar or restaurant.

Marble – Elegance and Luxury

Marble is a multi-purpose natural stone used in architecture, sculpture, designs, and more. Offering timeless design, marble features subtle tones and lines which adds elegance and luxury to your bar and restaurant.

Marble is also known for its longevity, though if not cleaned up quickly, it can stain as a result of spills from wine and other acidic substances. Of course, as a restaurateur, you know that spills are quickly cleaned off any surface, making marble an exceptional choice for your bar. However, keep in mind that marble surfaces need to be sealed regularly to keep them functioning at their best.

Classic Marble Restoration, Inc. offers the most thorough marble cleaning process and outstanding marble polishing services to keep your marble looking brand new.

Granite – Classic and Versatile

Granite is another excellent choice in natural stone. Every slab of granite is distinct, offering a multitude of colors and patterns making it ideal for upscale restaurants where culinary creativity abounds, or neighborhood bars where everyone feels welcome.

For your granite to promise a unique character and deliver functional durability, you will need to hire a granite and other natural stone services company that specializes in restoration and polishing.

Onyx – Deep and Exotic

Onyx, also a natural stone, is unique in the fact that it is translucent and can be backlit, adding to its deep, exotic charm. Onyx promises a unique design, which will act as a focal accent for your restaurant. Onyx is slightly more sensitive than other natural stone, so it will be the optimal choice for more exclusive venues.

However, onyx can be used for any venue if you hire a professional marble restoration and polishing company to regularly maintain it. With Classic Marble Restoration, Inc., you will no longer have to worry about the delicate onyx stone on your bar top.

Successfully Facing the Challenges of a Bar or Restaurant Owner

As a bar and/or restaurant owner, it can be difficult to keep the natural stone in your bar/restaurant clean and safe on a daily, and we understand the importance of keeping your bar in tip-top condition for your patrons. That is why at Classic Marble Restoration, Inc., our goal is to help you do just that, so we are pleased to provide you with a FREE estimate for keeping your natural stone looking its best and performing with exceptional functionality for years to come.

How Do I Repair and Restore Bathroom Marble?

When newly installed, marble floors have a beautiful reflective finish and bring elegance to your home. As time goes by, this glossy finish tends to dim, lose luster, and can lead to the damage of your marble bathroom counters, floors, vanities, and more.

If this happens in your marble bathroom, the walls, counters, and floor will undoubtedly have a dull look. When you have a beautiful stone, such as marble, installed in your bathroom, it’s a disservice to your décor to let it become dim and lackluster. Even in the future, if you are planning to sell your house, having dull marble floors and walls will lower the value of your home.

Want to know how to restore your marble bathroom and increase the value of your home?

Read on and learn more about marble bathroom restoration.

Clean All Marble Surfaces

Marble is a metamorphic rock. As such, it is softer than granite and can stain easily. This is because the marble collects the by-products from our bathroom cosmetics and beauty products which eventually lead to discoloration, and sometimes staining. As a natural stone, marble also wears out very easily.

If your water supply is hard water, make sure you clean the marble surfaces after using the bathroom. Failure to do so may lead to water stains.  When cleaning, make sure that soap does not come into contact with the water as it can form soap scum.

Bathroom products that can damage marble:

  • Beauty products
  • Soaps and cleansers that contain waxes and/or fragrance
  • Toothpaste
  • Mouthwash
  • Hairspray
  • Perfume
  • Cologne
  • Contact Lens Solution

Tips to Preserve the Sheen of Your Bathroom Stone:

  • Coasters
  • Clean and wipe countertop around sink after use
  • Use trays for beauty products that may leak
  • Rinse shower walls and floor after use
  • Squeegee walls/floor dry to prevent soap scum and residue build up

Repairing Damaged Marble in Your Bathroom

Carry out a quick inspection of all marble surfaces in the bathroom. What have you identified? Are there any cracks on the marble tiles? If there are, you need to make repairs quickly.

Overtime, natural stone can be damaged in the following ways from wear and tear:

  • Cracks
  • Breaks
  • Holes
  • Chips

In this case, it’s important to hire a professional marble restoration expert.

If you’re a handy person, it’s normal to feel like you can get it done on your own, but it’s important to ensure it’s done right.

Classic Marble Restoration, Inc. can apply different materials and color-match them to the stone to create flawless and seamless repairs.

We use UV-cured formulas and products to not only conceal the old damage and repair it – but also to ensure that the repairs are “watertight” and safe for their future use.

Grinding and Honing Your Marble Bathroom Surfaces

Grinding is the most powerful process when it comes to marble bathroom floor restoration. Although it is powerful, it isn’t as harsh and abrasive as people believe. Also known as lippage removal, this process helps to remove all roughness and ledges. As such, it ensures the marble floor is flat.

Also, it helps in removing deep stains and scratches. When it comes to honing, industrial diamonds help to bring back the shine to the marble floor or surfaces. This process also removes stains and scratches present after grinding.

Additionally, grinding natural stone isn’t as messy and dusty as it has been in the past. We utilize dust-free methods. We utilize water to lubricate the surface we are refinishing with grinding tools – therefore keeping all of the marble shavings trapped in the liquid and eventually vacuumed up.

This dust-free grinding procedure is especially favorable inside of:

Check out our grinding and honing page for more information on restoring damaged marble in your bathroom with grinding procedures.

Polishing and Sealing Marble Bathrooms

Although honing gives your marble floors a uniform appearance, you need to restore the shining effect. Marble Polishing using small grade industrial diamonds helps you achieve this. If the marble floors are in good condition, bringing back the reflective finish is easy using state-of-the-art marble polishing equipment, technology, and technicians with the best cleaning materials.

The last step is sealing. As we discussed earlier, as your marble surfaces come into contact with hard water, soap, and cosmetics, it is important to prevent the staining that these acidic chemicals can leave on your marble. The best way to do so is by applying stone sealants.

This helps to close the pores on the marble and shields them from future damage and will prevent the discolorations/staining from becoming a permanent part of your stone surface.

The first rule in sealing your natural stone is “never use a topical sealer.” This is a common mistake that we see DIY (do it yourself) homeowners make. Why?

A lot of the sealers sold at Home Depot and these “Big Box” stores are designed for tile and non-porous materials, so they contain harmful acrylics and waxes for your marble.

You need to utilize an impregnating sealer, designed for natural stone. Classic Marble Restoration, Inc. utilizes high-quality impregnating sealers that are specific to the type of stone that needs application. If your stone is porous – it should be sealed. Call us to do it right.

Caring For Your Marble: 3 Of The Worst Stains to Avoid

Marble is one of the most popular construction materials due to it’s timeless look and durability. It has been used to build everything from famous landmarks to renowned sculptures including the Parthenon marbles, Aphrodite of Milos, and the Taj Mahal.

Today, it is a common material used in homes. However, as a natural metamorphic stone it is vulnerable to stains. Depending on your habits, marble can stain easily and in some cases, your typical marble cleaning solution won’t be able to get rid of tough stains. In this post, we highlight 3 of the worst marble stains to clean, and how to address them if they happen.

1. Rust Stains

As one of the most difficult to remove marble stains, rust stains are copper to brown in color and occur when metal objects oxidize. The most common culprit of rust stains is metallic objects left to sit on the marble surface for long periods of time. Things like nails, bolts, cans, screws, metal furniture, and metal flower pots can all cause rust stains.

Not only are rust stains unsightly, they’re difficult to remove. If you try to use your regular cleaner to remove the rust stain, it may not be effective because it doesn’t contain the active ingredients that help to remove rust. The most common marble cleaner most homeowners may opt to use is an acidic marble cleaner. However, this type of cleaning solution is not recommended because it can make the problem worse. To remove the rust stains, you may have to call a professional marble restoration technician.

2. Water Stains

Unlike many other stains, water stains cannot be cleaned. Water spots or stains are a result of deposits in water that build up on your marble surfaces over time. This is more common in areas like South Florida where the water contains large amounts of mineral deposits like magnesium and calcium, also known as hard water.

To clean the water spots, the Marble Institute of America recommends the use of 0000 Steel wool. A word of caution- steel wool can be extremely abrasive and should be used with a light touch. If you’d rather not risk further damage to your marble surfaces, it’s best to hire an expert.

3. Biological Stains

Biological growth like algae, lichens, moss, and fungi is common on marble surfaces that are outdoors- especially walls and flooring. When the biological growth is present on your marble surfaces, it will attracts moisture to the surface and retains it there causing discoloration- along with other issues.

To remove the biological growth build-up, experts recommend the use of rainwater.  Why rainwater? It contains fewer mineral deposits compared to tap water. Before cleaning, prepare a mixture of rainwater with non-ionic soap and add this to a sprayer to begin cleaning. When brushing your marble, remember to use a soft bristled brush and orbit motion. Rinse with rainwater and check the results. If the problem persists or if your marble surface still looks dull or discolored, consult a professional.

How to Avoid Marble Stains

When it comes to marble stains, there are a few measures you can take to avoid staining your marble. Remember to use coasters for any drinks placed on your marble counters, and be mindful when using sinks and showers. Try to avoid having metal objects stay in one place for an extended period of time.

While durable, marble surfaces do require some level of extra caution- so make sure you’re treating your marble carefully. Are you in search of professionals who can restore the reflective finish on your marble surfaces? At Classic Marble Restoration, we can help. Contact us today for your free consultation.

Give Your Marble a New Year Refreshment with Our Natural Stone Polishing and Cleaning Services

Does your marble need a good stone polishing? Keep reading to find out how our services may help you.

Marble floors have been proven to last for over one hundred years, the longest lifespan of any flooring materials.

Discerning customers choose marble flooring because of its upscale, sophisticated finish. A well-polished marble floor instantly elevates a room’s appearance. A silky smooth, glimmering surface immediately lets visitors know that they are somewhere remarkable.

Marble is also a great conductor of heat, leaving your floor toasty in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Despite its unparalleled advantages, marble can be difficult to clean. It is highly reactive to acidic cleaning agents, and stains and etch marks can be difficult to remove. They may even settle into the pores of your flooring, ruining their natural appeal over time.

Professional marble stone polishing can keep your flooring glossy and attractive and prevent any damage that could harm them. The beauty, value, and originality of your marble will shine with the right treatment, and it will maintain its allure for years to come.

Stains on Your Marble Floor

Marble is made up of calcium bicarbonate, which is quarried from mountains. As a result, each marble floor has a unique appearance and mosaic pattern that you won’t find in any other tile.

While most stains will come off a marble floor easily, some acidic stains found in sauces, wines, and oils, will not come out. Grout and rust can be absorbed deeply into the pores of marble.

Certified professionals apply special, chemically-sensitive cleaning techniques that leave your floor squeaky-clean. They know the special needs of marble and are prepared to handle them with knowledge and grace.

Polishing is a process that restores your floor’s shine after stains are removed. Floors polished to a high finish are less susceptible to scuff marks or dust build-up.

After you polish and seal your floor, it will require only a simple wet-mopping to remove dirt. It will also be more resistant to staining and damage than it was before it was polished.

Etches on Your Marble Floor

Etches on your marble floor can be difficult to correct. They can leave your floor lighter in color and dull its shine.

Professional cleaning service technicians can use advanced equipment, including diamond abrasives, to remove sketch marks and restore your floor’s natural beauty.

There is also less cracking and surface damage once your floor is polished.

Sealing Your Floor After Stone Polishing

A professional marble-restoration company can also seal your marble floor after polishing. Floors are treated with a chemical that prevents cracking and moisture transmission.

Sealing will leave your floors less susceptible to dirt and staining and will save you money in the long run as less maintenance will be required.

Shine On

A marble floor is a wonderful investment for those who love their opulent, glimmering finish. Maintain their beauty for over a century by contacting a professional stone polishing service who can clean, polish, and seal your floor for optimal shine.

Why You Should Clean Your Marble Floors After a Holiday Party

After a holiday party, one of your number one priorities should be cleaning your marble floors. Read on to learn why and how to do it.

After a great holiday party, we realize that cleaning your marble floors might not feel like your top priority–but it’s more important than you might think. Plus, we can make it super-easy for you!

Although marble is a resilient and durable stone, it is actually porous and is susceptible to etching and staining. So, if any wine or other liquids have been spilled on your marble floors, it’s vital to clean them off before they cause staining.

How to Clean Marble Floors 

We recommend cleaning up any spills immediately with a damp cloth with distilled or deionized water. Then do a more thorough cleaning once your guests have left. Take care of your marble floor with these simple cleaning tips.

Simple Equipment 

The best way to clean your marble floor is to sweep up any loose items with a brush, then use a damp mop. Be sure that your mop is just damp–not soaking wet. If there is a lot of liquid on your mop, some may be absorbed by the stone.

Don’t use a vacuum cleaner as these can scratch the surface.

Which Cleaning Product to Use on Marble Floors 

It’s vital to use the right type of cleaning product for your marble.  Most store-bought cleaners are very acidic and your marble needs an alkaline cleaner. Home-made cleaning solutions such as vinegar, milk, lemon or ammonia are also all too acidic. Acidic cleaners can completely destroy the surface of your beautiful marble so please beware.

Use a cleaning product designed specifically for marble floors. A neutral or slightly alkaline stone soap is a great option. Using water alone can make your marble floors look a little dull, so we recommend using a specialized cleaning product for best results.

Don’t Forget This Final Step! 

When you’ve cleaned your floor, be sure to dry it off. Use a clean towel or cloth to ensure all liquid is removed.

How to Polish Marble Floors

Nothing beats the beautiful gleam of a freshly polished marble floor. It shows this gorgeous stone off to its best advantage!

Cleaning vs Polishing: What’s the Difference?

First, let’s look at the difference between cleaning and polishing.

To keep your marble floors looking their very best, clean up any spills immediately as detailed above, and undertake a regular cleaning and polishing routine.

Depending on usage, most marble floors usually need to be cleaned once or twice weekly. Polishing can be monthly or bi-monthly, then sealing every 6 months.

When you polish the floors, you use a special polishing compound and apply it gradually and evenly across the floor. The polish helps seal the floor and prevent staining–but it wears off over time and usage.

Ensure you remove all stains before polishing your floors, as the polish will seal them in. If your marble has been damaged or stained and needs restoration, we can help you with that.

Buffing vs Polishing

In between polishing’s you can use a soft cloth or towel to buff up the appearance of your floor and get that lovely shine back.

The Easiest Way to Clean, Polish and Buff Your Marble Floors

If this all sounds like a lot of work, we would love to make it easy for you–give us a call on (866) 578-3600 or request a free quote online. You can even book us to come and clean your marble floors just after your holiday party!

The 10 Biggest Interior Design Trends of 2018

2017 boasted quite a few unique style trends that many homeowners and interior designers fell in love with. However, with the start of 2018, we will be seeing a lot of 2017’s fabulous trends being put to rest, only to be replaced with a new set of bright and bold home decor trends. To start off the new year, Houzz, the home remodeling and design network, gave their predictions for the top interior design trends that are going to be making waves during 2018.

After conducting research, speaking to industry experts, and carefully examining trends on social media, here are the 10 interior design trends that Houzz believes designers and homeowners will be implementing in their homes this year:

1. Colorful Kitchens

In previous years, white kitchens have made a bold, but elegant statement within homes. However, as we roll into 2018, white kitchens are soon to be a trend of the past. Experts say that colorful kitchens will be more popular this year. To bring color to the kitchen, more warm wood tones will be incorporated into flooring and other elemental features. Additionally, more neutral colors such as greys and blues will be used on kitchen walls for a warm feel.

 

2. Rich Colors

Neutral tones might be taking a back seat for the rich colors that are expected to shine in 2018. Designers claim that more warm greys, caramels, and earthy tones of yellow, red, and green are going to be used in wall decor, furniture, and accent pieces in homes

3.Natural Stone Sinks

lthough the modern Farmhouse style is still going to be present in 2018, designers state that white and stainless steel sinks will be making an exit. Their replacement: natural stone. Natural stone sinks will be making their way into kitchens and bathrooms this year, boasting beautiful, rustic themes. More and more sinks will be fashioned out of concrete, stone, and granite.

4. Floral & Tropical Prints

This trend skyrocketed in 2017 and is one that homemakers and interior designers are not ready to part with. Houzz predicts that we will be seeing a lot more of the ethnic floral and tropical prints with an emphasis on big, bright, and bold.

5. Vintage Lighting

This year, vintage light fixtures, lanterns, pendants, sconces, and chandeliers will be making a retro appearance this year. However, the experts at Houzz believes that many vintage lighting pieces will be created by crafty homeowners.

6. Bucket Sinks

Just another example of the ever-trending Farmhouse look, Houzz experts claim that bucket and trough sinks will be featured quite often this year. These sinks are deep and wide and provide homeowners with great durability and unique, rustic style.

7. Concrete Accents

The modern look will never be a trend of the past and concrete accents are here to add to it. Concrete accents will be featured in flooring, countertops, home decor accessories, and much more.

 

8. Millwork

Millwork, or reclaimed wood are coming back into popularity and design experts expect to see it used as elegant DIY pieces.

9. “Wallpaper-esque” Backsplashes

Kitchen and bathroom backsplashes are a common design element that adds bold color and design to bring the room to life. Designers expect to see more contemporary tiles that look similar to wood, resin, fabric, and wallpaper being used this year.

10. Modern Bedrooms

Minimalism in master bedrooms is a trend to keep an eye out for this year. Designers claim that more neutral tones will be incorporated into bedrooms as well as soft fabrics and simple furniture pieces (sources)

 

As we glide through 2018, keep your eye out for these fashionable home trends.

The Most Expensive Flooring In The World

Flooring adds a unique feel to a space and can truly bring out the beauty of a property.

We all know that marble and other natural stones do not come cheap but you’d be surprised to find out the cost of one particular type of flooring

Pietra Firma Luxtouch Tiles

The priciest tile in the world is called Pietra Firma Luxtouch Tiles and these tiles costs$1,000,000 per square meter.

luxtouch-tiles

Why So Expensive?

Every square meter of this tile is inlaid with:

  • More than 1000 diamonds
  • 2400 pieces of mother of pearl
  • 400 pieces of abalone shell
  • 500 pieces of black onyx

The tile creates a look that is incomparable to any other tile in the world due to its unique composition. Since the elements within the stone are slightly raised above the surface, the tactile effect when walking on them adds to the uniqueness of it. The tile will only be used in five projects globally, being exclusive and extremely rare, not to mention expensive.

This one-of-a-kind tile made its debut during the Monaco Yacht Show in Monte Carlo. With its intricate detailing and exceptional artistry, this creation most definitely begs a second glance. The limited edition flooring is the definition of luxury and boasts uncompromising thought to detail. High-end consumers find unmatched ambience in this posh tile as it adds a high level of atmosphere to a room.

A New Advancement In Marble Protection

marble-restorationNatural stone requires proper care and maintenance in order to preserve its eye-catching aesthetic. Since marble is a natural stone, it is quite porous and thus absorbs stains, spills, dirt, and grime much quicker than its non-natural counterparts such as tile and vinyl.

At Classic Marble Restoration, we provide professional marble polishing and marble restoration services. However, there has been some new advancements in marble protection that is very interesting. 

Human Teeth and Bones?

Researchers at Princeton University’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering have discovered that hydroxyapatite, the primary compound found in human teeth and bones, can be used to help conserve the condition of (Source).

The harsh environmental factors coupled with pollution and age, wreak havoc on marble structures such as the Taj mahal in India and The Statue of David in Italy. Marble is actually composed of the mineral calcite which naturally reacts with a phosphate salt water solution to create the hydroxyapatite. This means that a compound that is found in human bones and teeth can actually be produced and applied to marble in order to preserve it (Source). With hydroxyapatite, marble can better handle these harsh elements, refraining it from crumbling and degeneration.
