    Grout Master on Natural Stone Question

    Hello everyone, hope you're all safe and sound. I don't really do cleaning and sealing without resurfacing but I have a large job coming up and have a few questions. The floor consists of approximately 3500 sq ft of Eramosa limestone. The hotel owner is requesting to have it cleaned and sealed...

    Salt Stains on Interlock

    Hey guys. What are you using to remove salt stains on interlock? Thanks!

    I shite you not.

    Multiple houses a day, yes find a bathroom when you're on the road. If your jobs are taking the full day, I don't see anything wrong with taking a dump.

    Need marble floor advice

    Removing wax from grout can be a pain too. You will have to diamond grind with tons and tons of stripper. Being that it's been the stone had probably cracked and chipped in areas. This sounds like a $10,000+ job. Don't bit off more than you can chew.

    Yes. But it's not magic you will still need to use your razor blades!

    Cleaning Marble tile showers

    This is a granite pic. With marble you'll most likely be doing some resurfacing once you remove the hard water and scum.

    How long does it take to color seal?

    I find the steamer doesn't get it super clean. Is it sufficient enough as you're colour sealing anyway?

    Honing Travertine

    I would still grind with 400 resin after acid wash. Acid leaves the floor too rough.

    Honing Travertine

    Not polishing but they are great for patina and honed finishes. Grind with 400 and maybe 800 resin first.

    Trouble pricing this job.

    A clear polish with good clarity? How is that possible without crystalizing?

    I've been hearing guys go from 400 resin to polish. How is that possible?

    Trouble pricing this job.

    I think 400 resin would get rid of the etches and surface wear. Grind flat as in no lippage and metal grind?

    Trouble pricing this job.

    We usually do small residential job or commercial, nothing ever close to this size. 6700 square feet of limestone at the Mandarin head office and flagship banquet hall. I've attached some pictures. Various cracks some hairline, others a bit larger. Traffic areas will need a grind. At least...

    Green Pads for Tile and Grout Cleaning

    Anyone use these types of pads? I got the Clarke square oscillator. Here's one made of astroturf http://www.cleanfreak.com/equipment/floor-supplies/pads/scrubbing/14x20-inch-green-turf-pad.html Here's another one http://www.parish-supply.com/square-strip-tile-grout-cleaning-pads.aspx

    If you're not color sealing, you're missing out on easy $ and ecstatic customers

    I hear you can apply color clad with a white pad and orbital with a light rinse with an extractor. The seal only bonds to the grout and will come off the tile easily. Anyone try this method? It would be great for a large area.

    Stone Guys - How do you sell your services?

    A sold house!! Potential buyers will notice the floor or surface being destroyed and may not know it can be restored. Walking into a home and thinking you got to replace the floor deter potential buyers.

    Stone Guys - How do you sell your services?

    I'm just stuck. Do I include all the services. Maybe I should make more than one dedicating certain brochures for certain clientele.
