Maintenance

Just like visiting the dentist twice a year or changing your oil every 3000 miles, we provide basic maintenance services to meet your requirements. Its much better to “keep up” as opposed to “catch up” when it comes to basic cleaning and sealing services. It will almost always cost more in the long run if you put-off maintenance.

  • Residential Maintenance
  • Commercial Maintenance

Restoration

As much as people hope that natural stone floors were maintenance free, that simply is incorrect. These materials are extremely durable, but even they can be compromised in the course of normal daily living. Dropping a heavy object can result in a cracked stone. Moving a couch or piece of furniture across the floor can leave a scratch. The chairs in your dining room can dull the stone flooring underneath them. You probably know how abrasive Southern Utah’s blowing sands can be on your floor. Acid sensitive stones can be damaged by food, drinks, beauty products and even your pets if you aren’t careful. We have to clean up after contractors all the time that inadvertently damage our clients floors. A cleaning business can use the incorrect product and cause damage. The good news is that all of these things can be restored by the experts at Suva Tile.

Restoration Services we Provide:

  • Etch Removal
  • Lippage Removal (uneven stones)

Cleaning

All floors get dirty with normal usage.

Travertine, Marble and Limestone floors can get dirty just like every other type of flooring. Unlike porcelain or ceramic tiles, natural stone flooring requires different cleaning methods. Something as basic as using the wrong chemical cleaner can damage most stone flooring. With our years of experience we understand the ideal way to clean various types of stone floor. We can restore your floor to its original elegance.

Bathroom and kitchen countertops get dirty as well.

We use high temperature steam to sanitize each countertop as well as removing all mineral and hard water deposits.This guarantees the surface not only looks great but is free of germs as well!

If you have porcelain or ceramic tiles, in general the grout lines get soiled long before the surface of the tile does. At Suva Tile we can clean both surfaces in unison with our unparalleled cleaning process. We always return your furniture to its original location when the cleaning procedure is completed. We typically suggest applying a sealer to keep your floor looking good for longer and make subsequent cleanings much easier.

Sealing

All natural stones and most of the grout used today is porous. As a result those surfaces will easily absorb any liquid when they get wet. Water spills are no problem, but how about drink, food, children or pet accidents? Severe harm can quickly be caused by these fluids. You can’t stop the joys of life from occurring so the next best thing is to protect these porous surfaces with the application of a sealer. With that said, they many different kinds of sealers. Sealers can be solvent or water based, topical or penetrating, clear or color enhancing or color changing. There isn’t a single “best sealer” to choose, it all depends on your particular preferences and circumstances. We all inform you of all the various options and help you make the best choice for your home.

Sealing Services:

  • Seal the surface of your stone and make it shine (topical sealer)
  • Seal and change the color of your grout (color seal)
  • Seal without changing the grout color (clear penetrating sealer)
  • Seal the surface of your stone and bring out more of the natural colors (enhancing penetrating or topical sealer)
  • Seal the surface of your stone and maintain the natural look (clear penetrating sealer)
  • Remove a sealer or coating you do not like (stripping)

Polishing

Natural stones are distinct in a number of ways. The ones in your house are at least 20 million years old. They can be dull without any shine or reflectivity or highly polished to a mirror like finish. The benefit is most of the times these stones can altered to fit your own personal style and preference. There are a number of ways to put make stone shine. Here at Suva Tile we opt for the “old school” method of polishing which leaves the longest lasting and most beautiful finish. This strategy does not use any chemicals to alter the stone, but rather a series of diamonds is used to polish the surface to your desired outcome. No dust is produced and we use only diamonds and water.

What can we polish:

  • Floors
  • Counter Tops
  • Tub Surrounds
  • Bathroom Vanities

Inspection Services

David Bonasera have been involved in consulting and expert witness testimony for the past two decades. This is when the client has a contractor that installs tile or stone and the job goes south and there is a problem with the installation such as cracking tiles, yellowing white marble tiles, substrate failures, or a loose floor because of the lack of proper bonding. I use tile and stone Forensics to check moisture, looking to walls, infrared technology, sound testing, deflection, and proper installation of stone and tile according to ANSI, TCNA, and NSI guidelines. Dave currently sits on the technical committee for the NSI, (National Stone Institute) and help write benchmarks for the natural stone industry.
