How Can We Help?

Honing is a process that can help you maintain the beauty of your natural stone surfaces without the need for frequent, intensive cleaning and maintenance. At Tile and Stone Cleaners®, our skilled technicians can honed your marble, granite, sandstone, limestone, and travertine to create a uniformly honed surface with a smooth, low sheen finish.

Honing is achieved by mechanically resurfacing your stone using diamond abrasives and water. This process can remove stains, water spots, glass rings, cracks, etching, and dull spots, leaving your surfaces looking elegant and in their natural state. The resulting surface has a satin-like feel and is velvety to the touch, making it a popular choice for floors in high-traffic areas such as bathrooms, living rooms, foyers, and kitchen counters.

One of the benefits of honing your stone surfaces is that it creates a matte finish that is less overwhelming than a high-gloss polished surface. Honed surfaces also have a lower risk of scratching, and when they do become scratched, the damage is not as noticeable. This makes honed surfaces ideal for casual, comfortable environments.

Resurfacing your stone surfaces requires skill and experience. If not done properly, it can actually enhance scratches and impurities instead of removing them. At Tile and Stone Cleaners®, we have the expertise and equipment to provide high-quality honing services for your stone surfaces.

Regular Care

Natural stone surfaces can add beauty and elegance to any home or office, but they also require special care to prevent scratches and damage. A regular maintenance program is essential to keep your natural stone looking its best.

One of the key steps in caring for honed natural stone is to clean it properly. Never use regular soap, as it can seep into the surface and cause darkening. Instead, use a mildly abrasive household detergent. Also, avoid using vinegar, as the acid can damage and etch many types of stone. After mopping, make sure to dry the floor with a cotton towel or sh-mop to prevent water spots.

Another important aspect of maintaining honed natural stone is to avoid contact with acidic substances. Common household items such as soft drinks, tea, citrus juice, and acidic cleaning products can etch or corrode the surface of honed stone. To protect your surfaces, it’s important to periodically clean and reseal them with a deep-penetrating, impregnating sealer. This will help prevent staining and reduce the effects of soiling.
