Our Granite Services
Cleaning & Sealing
Professional deep cleaning helps keep your granite floors and surfaces in top condition, minimizing wear due to contaminants or grit and grime. We can also seal and protect the granite in your kitchens, baths, outdoor living areas, and more to inhibit staining and make regular cleaning more productive.
Repair & Restoration
Cracks and chips, holes, unevenly laid tiles (lippage), stains… for these kinds of granite problems we offer expert solutions. With honing and polishing, most dull, scratched, etched, granite floors and surfaces can be beautifully restored.
Care & Maintenance
We recommend safe and effective cleaning products for you to use on a daily or weekly basis. For long term care, call us today to discuss your needs and to schedule regular care and maintenance for all your granite surfaces.
Cleaning, Sealing, and Rejuvenating Your Granite
Granite, one of the world’s hardest materials, is a stone of choice for kitchen countertops, not only because it is gorgeous, but because it is resistant to most acids, very durable, and easy to maintain.
Even so, granite is not impervious to damage. If your granite is dirty or dull-looking, scratched, etched, cracked, chipped or otherwise damaged, we can make it look brand new again!
Much harder than marble, granite is a rugged and resilient stone that requires specialized knowledge and equipment to restore. Many restoration professionals won’t even touch it. But at Atlantic Stone & Tile Care, we understand granite’s unyielding personality and have the right tools and techniques to get it looking its absolute best once more.
Granite Grinding / Lippage Removal
Are your tiles uneven, creating a potential trip hazard as well as an unattractive floor? Or maybe you’d like your granite tiles to be ground and leveled with the grout lines, making your floor easier to clean and more monolithic in appearance? Whatever the need, Atlantic Stone & Tile Care can help. Our grinding process (also known as lippage removal) creates a flat, level surface using state-of-the art diamond grinding technology. Then, once your granite surface is level, we can give it the finish you choose — honed (matte finish) or high-polish or somewhere in between.
Honing & Polishing Granite
As hard as granite is, it is still not impervious to wear and tear. Dulling, scratches, and etching may eventually mar its stunning beauty. No worries. It doesn’t have to be replaced. We can hone your granite surfaces to eliminate these imperfections, resulting in a new granite surface free of damage. Then our expert technicians can achieve a honed or soft matte finish that is warm, inviting, and velvety smooth, or give it a gorgeous, glass-like polish. Our granite-specific equipment and techniques will bring your granite back to its original elegant state — or better.
Deep Cleaning Granite
Granite cleaning processes vary based on the surface condition and type of dirt, oil or other contaminants being removed. Periodic professional deep cleaning services, utilizing highly-effective and stone-safe cleaning solutions can help keep your granite surfaces looking their best. Atlantic Stone & Tile Care is happy to instruct you in the proper methods and care products for regular care of your granite between professional cleanings.
Impregnating / Sealing Granite Surfaces
Once your granite floors, granite countertops, granite walls, and other granite surfaces are restored and cleaned, we highly recommend sealing your granite to enhance its stain resistance. This hard but porous stone, left unsealed, may absorb spilled or splattered staining agents and become discolored. These stains can generally be removed, but granite stain removal can be time consuming, expensive and often frustrating. Sealing your granite surfaces is an inexpensive way to help prevent staining damage.
Granite Stain Removal
Our professional technicians are experts in removing discolorations and stains on granite. Whether you want guidance in do-it-yourself granite stain removal or prefer to have us remove your granite discolorations for you, the original color of your granite can most likely be restored.
Before you decide to replace your chipped, cracked or otherwise damaged granite, consider having us provide expert granite repair services. We can fill holes, and fix granite cracks and chips, blend the repair site with the area around it, then hone and polish your granite floor, countertop or other granite surface to create a uniform finish.
Granite Tile Replacement
Although it is rare for granite surfaces to be damaged beyond repair, sometimes tile replacement is necessary. Our expert craftsmen can, in many cases, remove the affected tile without damaging neighboring granite tiles, install the replacement tile, level it with the surrounding area, and then match the overall finish as closely as possible.
Scheduled Granite Maintenance
We provide regularly scheduled maintenance services so your granite floors and other granite surfaces can look great all the time.
At Atlantic Stone & Tile Care we can instruct you on the proper care you should use in cleaning your granite 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 granite surfaces looking great.
