Maintenance

We offer basic maintenance customized to your needs. This is something we suggest getting done on a regular basis, like getting an oil change every 3000 miles. Its far better to “keep up” rather than “catch up” when it comes to basic sealing and cleaning services. It will almost always cost more in the long run if you put-off maintenance.

  • Commercial 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 damaged in the normal course of daily life. Dropping a heavy object can result in broken stone. It is possible to leave a scratch simply from sliding a piece of furniture across the floor. Your beautiful stone flooring may become dull 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. A contractor working in your home can accidentally damage your floor. Even a well-meaning cleaning company can cause damage to your floors simply by using the wrong product. Lucky for you Suva Tile are restoration professionals and can resolve all of these problems.

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. Natural stone flooring is different from ceramic or porcelain tiles and requires a very unique cleaning approach. Something as basic as using the wrong chemical cleaner can damage most stone flooring. With our years of knowledge and experience we understand the ideal way to clean various types of stone floor. We can restore your floor to its original elegance.

We all know how dirty bathroom and kitchen countertops can become.

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

If you have ceramic or porcelain tiles, in general the grout lines get soiled long before the surface of the tile does. We use a distinct cleaning procedure that efficiently eliminates the dirt from from both surfaces. We always return your home furniture to its original location when the cleaning process is complete. When the floor is clean, we suggest the application of a sealer to keep your floor looking good and make your routine cleanings much easier.

Sealing

The majority of the grout used these days is porous as is virtually all natural stones. Therefore when these surfaces get wet they can absorb virtually any liquid rather easily. Now something as simple as a water spill is nothing to worry about, but food, drinks or even pet accidents are a different scenario. All of those fluids can easily cause serious damage. This is why we specifically suggest the application of a sealer to protect against these accidents. Having said that, they several variations of sealers. Sealers can be solvent or water based, penetrating or topical, clear or color enhancing or color changing. There isn’t a single “best sealer” to apply, it all depends on your particular circumstances and preferences. We will explore all the possibilities with you and help you choose what’s best for your home.

Sealing Services:

  • 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 maintain the natural look (clear penetrating sealer)
  • Remove a sealer or coating you do not like (stripping)
  • Seal the surface of your stone and make it shine (topical sealer)
  • Seal and change the color of your grout (color seal)

Polishing

Natural stones possess various distinctive attributes. The ones in your house are at least 20 million years old. 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 modified to match your own personal style and preference. There are a number of 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. Our procedure uses a series of diamonds to polish the surface to the preferred outcome. We avoid using any chemicals. We only use water and diamonds to assure that no dust is produced.

What can we polish:

  • Counter Tops
  • Bathroom Vanities
  • Tub Surrounds
  • Floors

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 client may need a consultation 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 currently sits on the technical committee for the NSI, (National Stone Institute) and help write benchmarks for the natural stone sector.
