Granite floor restoration

Granite is an intrusive igneous rock that is composed of primarily quartz, feldspars, micas, and hornblende minerals. Granite has a hardness of 6 to 7 on the Mohs scale (the scale used to measure the relative hardness of minerals), and it is composed of interlocking crystals that give the stone its characteristic grainy look. Granite is commonly used for building stones, floor tiles, countertops, and other decorative pieces.

Granite floor restoration involves returning your floor to its original lustre. This can be done by honing, polishing, and sealing the granite and possibly filling in any scratches or chips.

Opting to repair your granite, marble, stone, laminate or wooden worktop is quick and easy, and avoids disruption to your kitchen by eradicating the need to remove cupboards, cabinets and even plumbing. Anyfloor are available to perform all repairs, using specially designed resin fillers to seal any cracks or chips, before polishing or buffing the surface back to its original state.

1. Preparation and Grinding: Start by cleaning and prepping the area, then grind the granite down by using a series of diamond pads of varying levels of grit, and wet vacuum the residue between each pad.
2. Honing: Move on to a honing process, where a rapid succession of diamond pads is used to bring an even overall finish to the bench, while removing minor chips and scratches.
3. Sealing: Then you should seal the floor by applying a sealer with a water or solvent base.
4. Polishing: Polish the floor either by hand or with a machine, using specialized diamond pads, to give it that glossy shine.
5. Maintenance: Lastly, make sure to properly maintain the floor once it’s been restored. Regular mopping and occasional resealing of the granite should help to keep it looking like new.
