How We Can Help

Honing your floors is a fantastic way to virtually eliminate taxing maintenance requirements while still having the wonderful characteristic of beautiful stone surfaces in your home or business. Experts Floor Care technicians can skilfully hone your marble, granite, sandstone, limestone and travertine.

Honing is achieved by mechanically resurfacing your stone using diamond abrasives and water to obtain a uniformly honed surface sheen, creating a look that is low key and not too overwhelming as some people find with highly polished, glossy floors. Honing your surfaces can resolve issues with stains, chips, water spots, glass rings, cracks, etching and dull spots. Experts Floor Care Australia technicians create a surface with a beautifully smooth, low sheen matte finish, leaving your surfaces looking elegant and in their most beautiful natural state.

Honed surfaces have a more satin-feel, smooth and velvety to the touch often more suited to casual, comfortable environments than more formal polished surfaces. Honed surfaces are also highly scratch resistant due to the lack of a glossy surface and when honed surfaces do become scratched, the damage is not obviously reflected. Honed surfaces are popular in areas of high foot traffic and regular use including floors for the bathroom, living rooms, foyers and kitchen counters.

Resurfacing is an extremely skilled task that requires patience and experience. If not done properly and to the right depth it may only enhance the scratches and impurities.

Regular Care

Natural stone is one of the most beautiful surfaces anyone can have in their home or office. However, many varieties can easily scratch in high foot traffic areas. A regular maintenance program using special care is vital if your surfaces are to retain their beauty.

Once liquids spill on the surface of a honed surface, wipe it immediately. To clean honed stone, you should never use regular soap as it can seep through the surface and darken the area, instead use mildly abrasive household detergent. Never use vinegar. The acid in vinegar damages, actually etches and removes the surface of many stone types. After mopping, dry the floor with a cotton towel or use a sh-mop to remove the moisture and prevent water spots.

Honed natural stone can become quickly etched or corroded by acidic materials upon contact by common household substances such as soft drink, tea, citrus juice and acidic cleaning products. A surface with a matte or honed finish needs to be as a rule, periodically cleaned and re-sealed by a professional and should be sealed with a deep penetrating, impregnating sealer, which avoids staining and reduces the effect of soiling, Australian made non-toxic Deepshield® Transparent Penetrating Sealer is highly recommended, non-slip and will last for up to 10 years.
