Breathing New Life Into Your Limestone
Limestone has a unique, natural appearance. It is comprised of shells, mollusks, and marine animals calcified over millions of years. To say it has stood the test of time is an understatement. It’s pretty good at coping with the unique hazards humans provide, too, but that’s not to say it couldn’t use a helping hand to keep it at it’s very best.
Limestone, like marble, is susceptible to dullness, scratches, staining, and acid damage (etching). It can also become chipped, cracked or otherwise damaged. We’re restoration experts and we restore the elegance to your limestone in no time — whatever service you need.
Limestone Cleaning and Sealing
Limestone cleaning processes vary based on the surface condition and type of dirt or oil being removed. Limestone is easier to keep clean with periodic professional deep cleaning services, using non-acidic, highly-effective cleaning solutions. Once your limestone floors, showers, tub surrounds, walls, and other limestone surfaces are cleaned and restored, we highly recommend you have us seal them to enhance their stain resistance. All stones (unless resined) are naturally porous. If left unsealed, there’s always a risk of spilling a colored or reactive liquid, discoloring your stone. While most stains can be removed, limestone stain removal can be a time consuming, expensive and often frustrating process. Sealing represents an inexpensive, preventative measure against limestone stain damage.
Limestone Stain Removal
Atlantic Stone & Tile Care can remove limestone stains, as well as limestone discolorations. Whether you are seeking guidance on how to do this yourself or want Atlantic Stone & Tile Care to treat your limestone, the original finish of your stone can be restored.
Limestone Lippage Removal / Grinding
Are your limestone tiles uneven? Do you want your tile floor flattened to the grout lines to facilitate easier cleaning? Atlantic Stone & Tile Care can grind away the excess stone (a process called lippage removal) to create a flat, level surface using state-of-the art diamond grinding technology. Once ground to the level and shape desired, the limestone is honed and polished to the finish you want.
Do you have chipped limestone tiles? Are there cracks in your floor? What about broken limestone tiles? Before you replace your limestone, consider having us provide expert limestone repair services. Atlantic Stone & Tile Care can fill holes in limestone, fix limestone cracks and chips, blending the repair site with the surrounding area, and honing and polishing it to match the finish on the rest of your limestone floor, countertop or other stone surface.
Limestone Tile Replacement
Although it is rare for a limestone tile to be beyond repair, sometimes tile replacement is necessary. Atlantic Stone & Tile Care craftsmen can, in many cases, remove your affected tile without damaging neighboring tiles, reinstall the new tile, level the installed tile with the surrounding area, and then match the finish as closely as possible.
Is your limestone floor too dull or too shiny? If you have a new floor with some tiles that look more glossy than others – let us even out the finish for you. Whether you have or are seeking to acquire a gloss, semi-gloss or matte finish, we can deliver a beautifully restored or changed limestone finish.
Does your limestone floor have dull areas associated with wear patterns, scratches, etching or other damage? Atlantic Stone & Tile Care can hone your limestone surfaces to eliminate these imperfections, resulting in a new limestone surface free of damage, with a soft matte finish that is warm, inviting, and velvety smooth.
Once blemishes are removed by the honing process, Atlantic Stone & Tile Care can polish your limestone using the appropriate diamonds or polishing powders to give it a more reflective finish. With our limestone polishing services, our expert technicians can achieve a beautiful, semi-gloss or glass-like polish.
At Atlantic Stone & Tile Care we can instruct you on the proper care you should use in cleaning your limestone on a regular basis. We offer a full line of Care Products to assure you are using the proper cleaning product that will help keep your limestone surfaces looking great. We also provide a regularly scheduled maintenance program, upon request.
