Honing, Polishing, and Refinishing
Does your granite 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. Carter’s Floor and Surface Care can hone and polish your granite surfaces 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 or we can polish your granite to achieve a semi-gloss or high-gloss finish.
Repair and Replacement
Do you have chipped, cracked, or broken granite? Our expert granite repair services include filling in chipped areas in granite, fixing granite 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. Carter’s Floor and Surface Care technicians 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.
Whether you are seeking guidance on how to remove granite stains or discolorations yourself (refer to our Interactive Stain Guide) or want us to treat the stains on your granite, the original finish of your stone can, more often than not, be restored.
Cleaning and Sealing
Granite will benefit from periodic professional deep cleaning services, using our professional services. Once your granite surfaces are cleaned and restored, we highly recommend you have us seal them to enhance their stain resistance. All granite (unless resined) is naturally porous. If left unsealed, granite will absorb liquids. Even water will leave a dark area on unsealed granite until it completely dries out. 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.
