Granite Cleaning, Repair, Honing, Polishing and Sealing
Granite that has become dull and damaged will need professional services to restore its elegant luster and keep it looking its best. At AICAD Services, we know what it takes to make your granite surfaces look sensational. If your granite is dirty or dull-looking, scratched, etched, cracked, chipped, or otherwise damaged, don’t replace it! Our cleaning, polishing, restoration and protection services can make an incredible difference.
Do you have granite countertops, walls, or other granite surfaces? We provide complete granite care and professional maintenance services for these surfaces, including both interior and exterior granite for residential and commercial clients.
Honing, Polishing, and Refinishing
Does your granite floor have dull areas associated with wear patterns, scratches, etches or spots? An uneven finish, dull spots or etches can diminish the elegant appearance of your granite floors and surfaces. AICAD Services can hone your granite to eliminate these imperfections, resulting in a new granite surface free of damage. With our granite honing and polishing services, our expert technicians can achieve a honed or soft matte finish that is warm, inviting, and velvety smooth. We can also polish your granite using the appropriate diamonds or polishing powders to achieve a semi-gloss or gloss finish.
Are your granite tiles uneven? Do you want your tile floor flattened to the grout lines to facilitate easier cleaning? We 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 granite is honed and polished to the finish you want.
Repair and Replacement
Do you have chipped or cracked granite surfaces or broken granite tiles? Our expert granite repair services include filling in chipped areas in granite, fixing cracks, blending the repair site with the surrounding area, and honing and polishing it to match the finish on the rest of your granite floor, countertop or other stone surface. Although it is rare for a granite tile to be beyond repair, sometimes tile replacement is necessary. AICAD Services' craftsmen can, in many cases, remove your affected tile without damaging neighboring tiles, install the new tile, level it with the surrounding area, and then match the finish as closely as possible.
Cleaning and Sealing
Granite is easier to keep clean with periodic professional deep cleaning services, using non-acidic, highly-effective cleaning solutions. Once your granite floors, showers, tub surrounds, walls, and other granite surfaces are cleaned and restored, we highly recommend you have us seal them to enhance their stain resistance. All stone (unless resined) is naturally porous. If left unsealed, there’s always a risk of spilling a colored or reactive liquid which can discolor your stone. While most stains can be removed, granite stain removal can be a time consuming, expensive and often frustrating process. Sealing represents an inexpensive, preventative measure against granite stain damage.
Whether you are seeking guidance on how to remove stains or discolorations from a granite surface yourself or want us to take care of it for you, most stains can be resolved.
