Just like getting your teeth cleaned every 6 months or changing your oil every 3000 miles, we provide basic maintenance services to meet your needs. As it pertains to basic sealing and cleaning services your best choice is “keeping up” rather than trying to “catch up”. It will almost always cost more in the long run if you put off maintenance.

Restoration

A common misunderstanding is the natural stones used in your home are a low or zero maintenance surface. These surfaces are extremely durable, but even they can be compromised in the course of normal daily living. A stone floor may seem bulletproof, but drop a heavy object on it and it could crack. Sliding a couch or piece of furniture across the floor can leave a scratch. Your beautiful stone flooring can become lackluster looking simply from the bar stools are your kitchen island. You know how harsh Southern Utah’s blowing sands can be on 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. Even a well meaning cleaning company can cause damage to your floors simply by using the wrong product. The good news is that all of these things can be restored by the experts at Suva Tile.

Cleaning

Even low traffic floors can get dirty under normal circumstances.

Travertine, Marble and Limestone floors can get dirty just like every other flooring type. Unlike ceramic or porcelain tiles, natural stone flooring requires different cleaning methods. The majority stone flooring is easily damaged by using an unsuitable chemical cleaner. We have the knowledge to understand the difference, leaving you with a clean floor you can be happy with once again.

Everyone knows how dirty bathroom and kitchen countertops can become.

We utilize high temperature steam to sanitize each countertop as well as removing all hard water and mineral deposits.This guarantees that not only is the surface germ free, but it looks good as well.

For those who have ceramic or porcelain tiles, in general the grout lines get dirty way before the surface of the tile does. At Suva Tile we can clean both surfaces in unison with our unparalleled cleaning process. Furniture that needs to be moved and cleaned under gets returned to its original location. When the floor is clean, we recommend the application of a sealer to keep your floor looking great and make your routine cleanings much easier.

Sealing

The majority of the grout used nowadays is porous as is all natural stones. This simply means when these surfaces get wet they can absorb virtually any liquid rather easily. Water spills are no problem, but how about drink, food, children or pet accidents? Severe damage can quickly be caused by these fluids. This is precisely why we specifically recommend a sealer application to guard against these accidents. With that said, they several variations of sealers. Sealers can be water or solvent based, topical or penetrating, clear or color enhancing or color changing. Your specific preferences and circumstances will allow us to decide on the most suitable choice of sealer for your circumstances. We all advise you of all the different options and help you make the very best choice for your home.

Sealing Services:

  • Seal the surface of your stone and make it shine (topical sealer)
  • Seal the surface of your stone and maintain the natural look (clear penetrating sealer)

Polishing

Natural stones are unique in a number of ways. Chances are the stones in your house are 20 million years old or older. They can polished to a mirror like finish, or they can dull without any shine whatsoever. The beauty is most of the times these stones can customized to match your own personal style and preference. There are several ways to put make stone shine. Here at Suva Tile we opt for the “old school” technique of polishing which leaves the longest lasting and most beautiful finish. This procedure does not use any chemicals to alter the stone, but instead a series of diamonds is used to polish the surface to your preferred result. No dust is produced and we use only water and diamonds.

What can we polish:

  • Floors
  • Tub Surrounds
  • Counter Tops
  • Bathroom Vanities

Inspection Services

David Bonasera have been involved in consulting and expert witness testimony for the past two decades. When a contractor incorrectly installs stone or tile a customer might benefit from an assessment or expert witness testimony when taking the contractor to court. I use tile and stone Forensics to check moisture, looking to walls, infrared technology, sound testing, deflection, and proper installation of tile and stone according to ANSI, TCNA, and NSI requirements. Dave helps write guidelines for the natural stone industry as part of the technical committee for the NSI, (National Stone Institute).
