Clean, Protect and Seal Surfaces

Keeping your natural stone and other hard surfaces in your home clean and in good condition can be difficult. Over time, regular mopping and sweeping alone just won’t cut it. Your hard surface floors, countertops and backsplashes are exposed to daily wear and tear, scratches, stains and harsh chemicals. Natural stone is porous, which means the surfaces and grout can absorb spills, stain and harbor dangerous germs and bacteria. Depending upon the type of surfaces you have, specific cleaning solutions and processes are required. From marble and granite to Saltillo and terra cotta, our team of experts will clean and restore your hard surfaces back to their original beauty.

Stone Treatment Options

Clean and Buff

Professionally repairing holes, chips and cracks to restore damaged natural stone

Restoration

For hard surfaces that need more attention, our team of experts fill and repair holes, chips and cracks and refinish blemishes to match surrounding stone. Microscopic imperfections in the stone are removed and surfaces are polished to high gloss, satin or matte finish.

Types of Stone

We offer unparalleled cleaning, sealing and repairing for many different types of stone. Each type of stone requires a specific process for cleaning and our team will assess your specific needs and go over recommendations at the time of inspection.

An example of white marble

Marble

Very few rocks have as many uses as marble from floors to countertops and vanities. Every piece of marble is unique and requires specific cleaning and sealing process. It can be polished to a matte, low-shine or high gloss finish.

An example of granite, white with black and gray flecks

Granite

Heat resistant and known for its strength, granite surfaces require little maintenance further than cleaning and sealing if cared for properly.

An example of beige travertine tile

Travertine

Gaining in popularity for its versatility, travertine although similar to limestone, is considered a type of marble. Due to its high porosity rate this stone requires more care and repair than other stones.

An example of dark gray slate tile

Slate

Most commonly used in flooring, slate is a durable and beautiful high-end option that requires unique installation and maintenance needs.

An example of saltillo tile

Saltillo, Clay,
Terra Cotta

One of the specialties here at Aladdin, Saltillo tiles and other clay products require a base seal at the time of their manufacturing. These tiles need multiple coats of acrylic floor finish known as “wear coat” to protect the original clay from damage.

An example of vintage brick

Brick

Like other Saltillo, brick is often worn and broken due to years of improper cleaning and sealing. We have extensive knowledge and expertise in the restoration and refinishing of brick.

An example of terrazzo tile

Terrazzo

Terrazzo is a composite material made of chips of aggregates like marble or stone. It can be poured like concrete and finished in place or installed in premade tiles. It can be refinished in a variety of finishes due to its similarities to marble and travertine.

An example of clean and sealed concrete tile

Concrete

One of the most durable flooring options, concrete is long-lasting and easy to maintain. But if not sealed properly, it can be damaged by moisture
