Make an Appointment
We realize a home is one of the biggest decisions and one of the largest purchases you will make in your lifetime. There is always a lot of hard work and sacrifices made to make it “yours.” SacSurfacePro takes the job of protecting one of your greatest investments seriously and we feel honored that our clients choose us to take care of and protect some of their homes’ most abused surfaces. We are the local experts for cleaning and sealing of tile and grout, granite, and glass surfaces. Although we prefer to protect brand new surfaces from the start we are also highly skilled at restoring existing surfaces and most of the time can bring them back to like new condition.
Tile and Grout Cleaning Sacramento
The most commonly used natural stones installed in homes in the Sacramento area are granite, marble, travertine, and limestone. For this section we want to focus on the latter three. Marble, travertine, and limestone are calcium based stones meaning they are sensitive to acids. They are also very soft and can scratch very easily. For these reasons most installers do not recommend using any of these surfaces on a kitchen countertop. Examples of common acids found in a kitchen are; coffee, fruits, soda, alcohol, vinegar, and the list could go on. Also, use of an acidic cleaner or dripping or spilling an acid even ONE time will almost always result in an “etch.” An etch mark will look dull in comparison to the surrounding stone. Etching will not come out with regular cleaners so don’t waste your time. If you choose to try, you will almost certainly make the situation worse. SacSurfacePro can typically remove etching, and also clean and seal your marble, travertine, or limestone surfaces. We have restored, cleaned, and sealed thousands of square feet of stone in the Sacramento area since 2005.
Porcelain or Ceramic Tile
Porcelain and ceramic tile have a glaze over the surface making it highly unlikely anything will stain the tile while also making spills a simple clean up. The grout is a different story. Grout is porous and susceptible to staining. Because it’s lower than the tile surface and usually has sand mixed in this tends to be an area which can be difficult to clean. The “valley” and rough surface will catch the dirt and hold onto it making it a challenge to restore without the right equipment. SacSurfacePro uses high powered equipment and tools made for this exact purpose. To clean tile and grout you need three components, heat, pressure, and suction. Our equipment provides all three of these at the same time and we are typically able to restore most floors to within 85%-90% of new condition.
Granite is always put into the “natural stone” category with marble, travertine, and limestone. While it is a natural stone, the base is completely different than these other stones. Granite is silicate based, much harder, and therefore more scratch resistant than the other three. The most important difference is its not acid sensitive like marble, travertine, and limestone. There are many types of granite which are porous meaning they can be stained if exposed to anything oily or anything containing a dye. The number one enemy of granite is oil. We always tell our clients it’s not a good idea to store oil on your granite countertop or to leave things like strawberries, cherries, mustard, or pasta sauce on your granite for any length of time. SacSurfacePro specializes in granite cleaning and sealing and in the case of older granite we can polish it and usually restore it to the original sheen. Unlike conventional sealers our sealers bond to the stone eliminating the need to reseal annually.
Shower Glass Surfaces
We offer our exclusive product, HydroShield to protect your shower glass from hard water stains making them 75% easier to clean. Once sealed the water will “sheet” off and keep those pesky spots on the surface making cleaning a breeze! HydroShield is guaranteed not to flake, peel, yellow, or discolor. It is a transparent seal which bonds to the glass surface for long lasting protection. One application will last a minimum of 3 years on new glass and, with proper maintenance, could last even longer. We can typically remove hard water spots from your shower glass and then seal. Because the glass has been exposed to hard water and damaged at a microscopic level, the HydroShield will not last as long and we don’t get the same bond we would get on a new, unused piece of glass. Since 2005 we have sealed thousands of shower doors in the Sacramento area.
