Keep your counters in tip-top shape
Have your marble, granite, or other natural stone countertops, reception desks, vanities or tabletops lost their shine? Are they stained, scratched, etched or otherwise damaged? Our technicians can resolve all of these issues, as well as providing cleaning and sealing services, and education in the appropriate cleaning products for your specific needs.
Cleaning & Sealing
Some natural stone types are more porous than others, but, generally speaking, all natural stone is susceptible to staining. That’s why it’s important to have your natural stone surfaces sealed, particularly countertops, which are most likely to get something spilled on them. Whether you’ve had your counters forever and it’s time they were resealed, or the contractors just finished installing them, or somewhere in between, AICAD Services can professionally clean and seal your natural stone countertops, making them resistant to stains, that is, giving you time to clean up spills before they turn into stains.
Stains happen. Sometimes there’s just no way around it. If you find yourself with a stained countertop, don’t hesitate to contact us. We can resolve most stains in all types of natural stone and get your counters looking beautiful again.
Scratch & Etch Removal
Many foods, drinks, cleaning supplies, and other chemicals you may find at home or at work are acidic, and while most granite is not acid sensitive, many other types of natural stone are, and this can result in etching. Though some people mistake etching for a stain or “water spots,” it is actually acid damage to the surface of the stone. Fortunately, our skilled technicians can remove this damage, as well as scratch marks and dullness, and refinish your countertops to like-new condition. We will also educate you in ways to prevent this kind of damage, such as always using cutting boards—preferably ones with a groove around the edge to prevent overflow of liquids—and padding on the metal feet of appliances or office equipment.
Crack & Chip Repair
Pots and cooking implements, small appliances, and desktop equipment can be heavy. No matter how durable the stone, if you drop something on it at just the right (or the wrong!) angle—bang! Now you’ve got a chip. It’s the sort of thing that can stand out on an otherwise pristine countertop and just drive you nuts! But it doesn’t have to. AICAD Services can repair most chips and cracks in a seamless manner.
Honing & Polishing
Can you tell what part of the counter you work on most because it’s duller than the rest? Or maybe it’s just time for a change of pace? Our honing and polishing services can restore the evenly-polished glory of your countertops or change that highly-polished finish to a honed (matte or satin) one or vice versa, delivering just the look you want.
