All floors get dirty with regular usage.
Travertine, Marble and Limestone floors get dirty just like every other type of flooring. Natural stone flooring is different from ceramic or porcelain tiles and requires a very unique cleaning approach. Most stone floors are 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.
We all know how dirty bathroom and kitchen countertops can get.
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 free of germs as well!
For those who have porcelain or ceramic tiles, in general the grout lines get soiled way before the surface of the tile does. We use a unique cleaning procedure that effectively eliminates the dirt from from both surfaces. We always return your furniture to its original location when the cleaning procedure is complete. Once the floor is clean, we suggest the application of a sealer to keep your floor looking great and make your routine cleanings easier.
All natural stones and the vast majority of the grout used these days is porous. As a result those surfaces will easily absorb any liquid when they get wet. Now something as simple as a water spill is nothing to worry about, but food, drinks or even pet accidents are a different story. Severe harm can quickly be caused by these liquids. This is why we specifically suggest a sealer application to guard against these accidents. With that said, they many different kinds of sealers. Generally speaking they fall into one of multiple basic categories: solvent or water based, topical or penetrating, clear or color enhancing or color changing. Your particular circumstances and preferences will help us to determine the best option of sealer for your scenario. We will discuss all the possibilities with you and help you to choose what’s right for your home.
- Remove a sealer or coating you do not like (stripping)
- Seal and change the color of your grout (color seal)
- Seal the surface of your stone and make it shine (topical sealer)
- Seal without changing the grout color (clear penetrating sealer)
- Seal the surface of your stone and maintain the natural look (clear penetrating sealer)
- Seal the surface of your stone and bring out more of the natural colors (enhancing penetrating or topical sealer)

Natural stones are unique in a number of ways. Chances are the stones in your home are 20 million years old or older. They can be dull with virtually no reflectivity or shine or highly polished to a mirror like finish. The beauty is most of the times these stones can modified to match your own personal style and preference. There are several ways to put make stone shine. Here at Suva Tile we favor the “old school” method of polishing which leaves the longest lasting and most beautiful finish. This process does not use any chemicals to alter the stone, but rather a series of diamonds is used to polish the surface to your desired result. We only use water and diamonds to assure that no dust is produced.
What can we polish:
- Tub Surrounds
- Bathroom Vanities
- Counter Tops
Suva Tile was founded in 1987 and for the last twenty years David Bonasera has been involved with consulting and expert witness. This is when the client has a contractor that installs tile or stone and the job takes a turn 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 tile and stone according to ANSI, TCNA, and NSI standards. Dave currently sits on the technical committee for the NSI, (National Stone Institute) and help write guidelines for the natural stone sector.
