Glossy or Matte Floor Appearance? Let Fantastic Services Help!

What is honing?
Hard surfaces (floors, countertops, walls) made from natural stone or concrete can benefit from being honed when they suffer from light scratches or have an uneven and dull appearance. The procedure is performed by employing a specialised equipment with an abrasive wheel and helps you achieve a natural low sheen matte finish and a smooth appearance of your flooring. The surface will reflect light moderately, giving the floor a low key and elegant look without the overpowering burnish that an additionally polished floor has. Honing stone floorings also makes the surface more scratch-resistant, so it can withstand heavy traffic. However, honed surfaces become prone to staining unless they are promptly sealed after the procedure.
Natural stone polishing
Stone floor polishing requires the use of a fine-grit abrasive equipment, which smoothes down the floor surface even further than honing to create a glossy look as an end result. It enhances the natural colour of the stone and gives the surface a strikingly lustrous appearance. The procedure can be performed directly on floors, which do not appear damaged in any way or after the surface has been first honed to remove small imperfections. Note that finely polished floors are susceptible to scratching. Hence, they are best sealed immediately after treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Do I need to seal my marble floor after it has been honed?
A: Yes. As most natural stone tile floor types are porous, they can easily absorb liquid in a spillage accident, which will result in an unsightly stain. Hence, the application of an impregnating and/or topical sealant is strongly recommended.
Q: Does honing address floor lipping?
A: No. Honing can remove light scratches, as well as uneven spots that are less than 2 mm in height.
Q: Can you polish terrazzo floorings?
A: Yes. Although more durable than marble, terrazzo surfaces also benefit from a professional restoration treatment now and again. We can expertly hone and polish your terrazzo floor with an outstanding result.
Q: Do you offer stone grinding services?
A: No. Presently, we do not provide stone grinding to our customers.
