Restoration

A common misconception is the natural stones used in your home are a maintenance free surface. While long lasting and resilient, they can be damaged from a variety of daily living mishaps. Dropping a heavy object can result in damaged stone. Moving a couch or piece of furniture across the floor can leave a scratch. Your gorgeous stone flooring can become lackluster looking simply from the bar stools are your kitchen island. The blowing sands of Southern Utah can scratch your floor. Food, drinks, beauty products and pets can all cause damage to acid sensitive stones. We have to clean up after contractors all the time that inadvertently damage our clients floors. A cleaning business can use the wrong product and cause damage. Lucky for you Suva Tile are restoration experts and can solve all of these issues.

Cleaning

Even low traffic floors can get dirty under normal circumstances.

Travertine, Marble and Limestone floors can get dirty just like any other flooring type. Unlike porcelain or ceramic tiles, natural stone flooring requires different cleaning methods. The majority stone floors are easily damaged by using the wrong chemical cleaner. We have the experience to know the difference, leaving you with a clean floor you can be proud of once again.

Bathroom and kitchen countertops get dirty as well.

Along with removing the hard water and mineral deposits, we sanitize each countertop with high temperature steam. This guarantees the surface not only looks wonderful but is germ free as well!

If you have ceramic or porcelain 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 unique cleaning process. We always return your furniture to its original location when the cleaning process is finished. We typically suggest applying a sealer to keep your floor looking great for longer and make subsequent cleanings much easier.

Sealing

Most of the grout used nowadays is porous as is virtually all natural stones. This means that those surfaces will easily soak up any liquid when they get wet. Now something as basic as a water spill is nothing to concern yourself with, but food, drinks or even pet accidents are a different story. Severe damage can quickly be brought on by these fluids. You can’t prevent the joys of life from happening so the next best thing is to protect these porous surfaces with a sealer application. Having said that, they many different kinds of sealers. Sealers can be water or solvent based, penetrating or topical, clear or color enhancing or color changing. There is no single “best sealer” to choose, it all depends on your particular preferences and circumstances. We will explore all the options with you and help you choose what’s right for your home.

Sealing Services:

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

Polishing

Natural stones possess many distinct attributes. Odds are the stones in your home are 20 million years old or more. They can be dull without any reflectivity or shine or highly polished to a mirror like finish. Depending on the style of your home and your personal preference, most times the same stone can be modified to your liking. There are a number of ways to put a shine on stone. For the most beautiful and longest lasting finish we at Suva Tile prefer using the “old school” technique of polishing. This strategy has proven to last for the long-term. Our process uses a series of diamonds to polish the surface to the preferred result. We avoid using any chemicals. No dust is produced and we use only diamonds and water.

What can we polish:

  • Floors
  • Counter Tops
  • Bathroom Vanities
  • Tub Surrounds

Inspection Services

Suva Tile was started in 1987 and for the last two decades David Bonasera has been involved with consulting and expert witness. This is when the customer has a contractor that installs tile or stone and the job goes south and there is an issue with the installation whether it be 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 helps write guidelines for the natural stone industry as an element of the technical committee for the NSI, (National Stone Institute).
