Granite and marble floors are major investments that can enhance the look and value of your business. Without proper maintenance, however, these flooring materials can become an eyesore, a hazard, and a drain on property value. Read on for a closer look at how PFM’s granite and marble maintenance in Texas can protect your investment.
It’s easy to assume that natural stone has more durability than lower-cost synthetic options like vinyl. The reality is that granite and marble are porous materials. Without the proper coating, they can become brittle or rough to the touch, chip easily, absorb liquid, and weaken.
We begin granite and marble treatment by stripping away old wax coatings that are no longer providing proper protection. We then apply a new finish that enhances the durability of your flooring by strengthening its surface without hiding its natural beauty.
Boosting Your Business Property Aesthetics
Granite and marble are timeless flooring options because they add a touch of elegance to any space – residential or commercial. This elegance can start to fade as the wax coating wears away, exposing the stone to foot traffic, spills, and other contaminants. Regular resealing services will ensure that those contaminants don’t tarnish the stone below. A new surface coat will also make day-to-day cleaning a breeze, allowing you to mop up liquid and vacuum away debris without worrying about stains, scuffs, or scratches.
With our equipment and expertise, we can often restore old granite and marble floors that haven’t been protected well. If you’ve recently purchased a building with worn or tarnished natural stone flooring, consult our professional maintenance team before committing to a full floor replacement.
As a commercial property owner, it’s your responsibility to provide a safe environment for tenants, employees, and customers. Any foreseeable safety hazards, including damaged flooring, increase your liability.
Our granite and marble maintenance can prevent your floors from becoming chipped and uneven and make it easy to spot and clean up spills right away. Our finish creates visual shine without reducing traction, so you don’t have to worry about slips, falls, and workplace injuries.
Builders and property owners often gravitate toward marble or granite because they’re said to last a lifetime—in fact, both can last over 100 years, making them an appealing choice for current renters and future buyers. However, natural stone does require care, particularly when used in commercial properties.
In a commercial space, floors undergo significant wear and tear. Due to factors like high foot traffic and the frequent movement of equipment or furniture, annual maintenance is key if you want to get the most out of your floor’s lifespan.
