Are your onyx surfaces too dull or too shiny? If you have a new floor with some tiles that look more glossy than others – let us even out the finish for you. We can deliver a beautifully restored gloss, semi-gloss or matte finish for all your onyx surfaces.
Lippage Removal? Onyx Grinding
When tiles are set unevenly, this is called lippage. Aside from detracting from the beauty of your installation, lippage can create a trip and fall hazard. You need not replace the entire floor, because our expert technicians can grind the stone to a uniform, flat surface. The honed or polished end result will be fantastic.
Onyx Honing & Polishing
A calcium-based stone, onyx reacts to acids found in lemon, wine, cleaners, and other substances, which can result in etch marks on the stone’s surface. Our expert technicians can hone your onyx countertops, furniture tops, walls, floors and other surfaces to eliminate etching, wear patterns, scratches, dullness and other problems. They can also achieve a honed or soft matte finish that is warm, inviting, and velvety smooth.
Knoxville Marble Polish Premium Stone Care can also polish your onyx using the appropriate diamonds or polishing powders to provide a beautiful, glass-like polish.
Some natural stone types are more porous than others, and the more porous a natural stone is, the more susceptible it is to staining. Your marble will be easier to keep clean with periodic professional deep cleaning services, using non-acidic, highly-effective cleaning solutions. Once your marble is cleaned and restored, we may recommend you have us seal it to enhance its stain resistance. We say, "May" because not all stone needs to be sealed. Highly polished stone may not even take an impregnating sealer. But, if sealing is recommended, know that sealing represents an inexpensive, preventative measure against stain damage, because it buys you time to wipe up spills before they become stains.
