- stone machine washing enables complete removal of impurities, that is cleaning of stains and various fats
- after machine washing, minimum two protective layers of polish are applied to the stone surface, protecting the stone from further damaging and giving it high shine, so-called mirror effect.
Machine washing of stone
This machine washing is performed with chemical cleaning agents that are carefully chosen depending on the type of stone. Each type of stone is washed with its special agents due to its peculiar features. Stone is porous and as such is prone to absorption of impurities, especially oil and fats which leave ugly stains, that is a slippery surface appears in contact with water in case the stone surface is smooth. If the surface is rough, the stone is usually porous, therefore the stains are more visible. By machine washing almost all impurities are removed. Washing machines are extremely strong and cannot be compared to „home-use“ machines. Apart from machine washing, professional machines vaccum water as wells so that stone gets dry faster and becomes prepared for polishing.
Machine washing and stone polishing
It is a process that offers your stone surfaces, that is floors, additional protection against water absorption. By reduction of stone porosity, polishing gives also additonal protection against penetration of oil and fats that are most frequent cause of stains. Polishing won’t completely protect the stone floor from water penetration but water quantity penetrating deeply into the stone is drastically reduced. Each floor is laid onto some kind of subfloor that changes its features in contact with water. Water is most frequent cause of stone floor „moving“ that were laid by means of dry technique . Namely, such floors are most often used for house plots and are directly put onto trodden earthen subfloor. Between the earthen subfloor and stone tiles certain types of nets and fine materials are applied, by means of which the subfloor is flattened. Stone porosity enables humidity to collect int he stone which penetrates deeply and „feeds“ the earth under the subfloor and conditions growth of weeds penetrating between the stone tiles, thus making the floor look ugly. It also slowly moves the tiles. Not only does polishing reduce stone porosity but also creates protective layer between the stone tiles and prevents sun penetration and weed growth. In outer stone tiles the cause of stains are also car tyres and dirty rain as well as landslides. All these impurities are easier to treat with home cleaning agents in case polishing has been conducted in an expert and professional manner.
