New Castle Tile Care and Stone Restoration
New Castle Tile Care is one of the few area companies that specialize in the use of diamond abrasives in the restoration of your stone surfaces. The use of diamonds in the grinding and honing phase of restoration will give you better clarity and more reflectivity after polishing. New Castle Tile Care also provides cleaning, sealing, crack/chip repair and stain removal for marble, granite, travertine, terrazzo and all other natural stone surfaces.
Cleaning - We remove dirt, stains and bacteria. We also remove waxes and polymers that have become embedded in your marble, stone, tile and grout.
Stripping - To remove coatings that block stone's ability to breathe which causes spalling (when the stones crack, pop and shale). Some examples of common coatings are, crystallization, janitorial waxes, polyurethane, etc.
Honing - To remove minor scratches and everyday wear patterns. This process is also done by machine with diamond abrasive pads and water that creates no dust.
Grinding - To remove deep scratches and remove lippage which is uneven tile edges. New Castle Tile Care uses a specially designed machine with diamond abrasive pads and water that creates no dust.
Color Enhancing - Color Enhancing is accomplished by using penetrating sealers / impregnators formulated to enhance or enrich the color of your stone.
Grout Cleaning and Sealing - Dirt loves to hide in grout. Brushes cannot penetrate into the micro pores to get all of the contaminants out. New Castle Tile Care uses a patented system to clean your grout to like new and then we seal it to facilitate easier maintenance for many years.
Sealing - The sealing process is used to seal the pores which will resist oil and organic stains and facilitate clean up. It will also prolong the beauty of the service for many years to come.
New Castle Tile Care Process
We offer a 5-Step System for Obtaining & Maintaining Beautiful Stone
Step #1 Evaluation
First, New Castle Tile Care will inspect your stone and perform a number of tests to determine type of stone. New Castle Tile Care will inspect the wear patterns and damage on the stone. After reviewing this data, New Castle Tile Care will restore a sample area for you to see the results. This will allow us to be very precise in our diagnosis of the problem and give you a snapshot of what your stone surface should look like.
Step #2 Restoration
Through the use of New Castle Tile Care trained stone technicians, state-of the-art equipment and materials, New Castle Tile Care will restore your stone surface to its original beauty. All work will be completed in a professional and timely manner.
Step #3 Impregnation / Protection
Many stones are susceptible to stains from spills of coffee, soft drinks. Often there is soiling from normal foot traffic, oils and many other things. Natural Stone can be protected against these stains by the use of an impregnator. An impregnator is an integral part of an ongoing, proactive stone care program. At New Castle Tile Care we use only the best, sometimes most expensive impregnators available on the market. Impregnators facilitate an easier, cost effective maintenance program for all natural stone by offering long term protection against stains and dirt penetration.
Step #4 Daily Maintenance Training
Most people use what they consider to be "safe" techniques and chemicals on their stone to care for it on a daily basis. What may be safe for tile or ceramic, can be damaging to natural stone. After New Castle Tile Care restores your stone surface to its original beauty, we will train you or your cleaning people on how to maintain a restored appearance on a daily basis. New Castle Tile Care can even leave you with our recommended weekly stone cleaner to use on a daily basis.
Step #5 Periodic Follow-Up Restoration
Even after stone has been restored and sealed, its new beautiful appearance is not permanent. Proper daily care will greatly extend the beautiful appearance, but on-going foot-traffic and other factors will always be wearing away at the finish of your stone. New Castle Tile Care suggests a periodic maintenance program. This periodic maintenance program will ensure a beautiful floor at all times and prevent the need for a complete restoration in the future. After restoration, New Castle Tile Care will design either a monthly, quarterly or semi-annual follow-up restoration schedule. The frequency will be determined by both the needs of your specific stone and the appearance level that you would like to maintain.
