I have used Kiwi for 10+ years and I keep coming back! I can get a cleaning in a reasonable amount of time, I know the cost in advance, professional teammembers do great work on the phone and in my home and always a great outcome. I have used them for carpet mostly, but I did use their tile cleaning service 2 years ago and the tile/grout cleanup came out like new. Highly recommend their services!

Maintain Your Marble’s Elegance with Kiwi Services’ Expert Marble Honing

Marble surfaces are a timeless and elegant addition to any home or business, but they require specialized care to maintain their beauty and durability. While marble honing is often performed during the initial installation to achieve a smooth, matte finish, ongoing care is essential as marble can become dull, scratched, or etched over time. At Kiwi Services, we specialize in marble honing, a process that smooths out imperfections and restores your marble surfaces’ natural, matte finish. With over 39 years of expertise, our professional marble honing service will rejuvenate your marble floors and countertops, enhancing their appearance and extending their lifespan—Trust Kiwi Services to deliver exceptional results, backed by our 30-day 100% satisfaction guarantee.

What is Marble Honing?

Marble honing is a specialized process used to restore marble surfaces’ smooth, matte finish. Unlike polishing, which creates a glossy finish, honing smooths the surface without adding shine. This process is essential for maintaining the natural beauty and functionality of marble.

Differences Between Honing and Polishing

  • Honing: Results in a matte or satin finish, providing a more natural and slip-resistant surface. It is ideal for areas where a less reflective finish is preferred.
  • Polishing: Produces a high-gloss, reflective finish, enhancing the shine and color of the marble. It is best suited for decorative areas where a shiny appearance is

Importance of Marble Honing

  • Restores Surface Smoothness: Honing removes minor scratches, etches, and surface stains, leaving the marble smooth and uniform.
  • Enhances Slip Resistance: The matte finish of honed marble is less slippery than polished marble, making it safer for high-traffic and wet areas like kitchens and bathrooms.
  • Increases Durability: By smoothing the surface and closing the pores of the marble, honing reduces its susceptibility to staining and moisture absorption, enhancing the stone’s durability.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Honed marble offers a soft, elegant look that complements various interior design styles, from classic to contemporary.

By understanding the purpose and benefits of marble honing, you can ensure your marble surfaces remain beautiful and functional. Kiwi Services’ expert marble honing process will help you achieve and maintain the perfect finish for your marble floors and countertops.

Benefits of Professional Marble Honing

Choosing professional marble honing services from Kiwi Services offers numerous benefits that enhance the beauty and longevity of your marble surfaces. Here’s why you should consider our expert marble honing:

  • Restores Surface Smoothness and Removes Imperfections: Over time, marble surfaces can develop minor scratches, etches, and stains that detract from their appearance. Our professional honing process effectively removes these imperfections, leaving your marble floors and countertops smooth and even.
  • Achieves a Matte or Satin Finish: Unlike polishing, which creates a glossy finish, honing results in a matte or satin finish that highlights the natural beauty of the marble. This finish is ideal for those who prefer a more understated, elegant look.
  • Enhances Slip Resistance for Safer Surfaces: Honed marble surfaces are less slippery than polished ones, making them safer for high-traffic areas and spaces prone to moisture, such as kitchens and bathrooms. This added slip resistance helps prevent accidents and injuries.
  • Increases Durability and Reduces Maintenance: Honing closes the pores of the marble, making it less susceptible to stains and moisture absorption. This enhances the durability of the marble and reduces the need for frequent maintenance. Your marble surfaces will stay beautiful and resilient for years with regular professional honing.
  • Protects and Prolongs the Life of Marble Surfaces: By addressing surface imperfections and enhancing the stone’s resistance to damage, professional honing helps protect and prolong the life of your marble surfaces. This means you can enjoy the elegance of your marble floors and countertops for longer.
  • Enhances Aesthetic Appeal: Honed marble offers a soft, refined look that complements various interior design styles. Whether your décor is classic, modern, or somewhere in between, honed marble can enhance the aesthetic appeal of your space, adding a touch of timeless elegance.

Kiwi Services’ Marble Honing Process

We take pride in our meticulous and thorough marble-honing process at Kiwi Services. Our expert technicians use advanced equipment and eco-friendly products to restore your marble surfaces to their original beauty. Here’s a detailed look at our process:

  1. Inspection: Our process begins with a comprehensive inspection of your marble surfaces. We assess the condition of the marble, identify any scratches, etches, or stains, and determine the best approach for honing. This step ensures a customized honing process tailored to your specific needs.
  2. Preparation: We prepare the area by cleaning the marble surface to remove any dirt, debris, or loose particles. This step is crucial for achieving a smooth and even finish. We also protect surrounding areas to prevent any damage during the honing process.
  3. Honing: We begin the honing process using diamond abrasive pads in various grits.
    • Selection of Abrasive Pads: We start with coarser grits to remove deeper scratches and etches, then progress to finer grits for a smooth finish.
    • Honing with Water: The abrasive pads are used with water to lubricate the surface, reduce friction, and prevent overheating. This ensures a consistent and even honing process.
    • Multiple Passes: Several passes with increasingly finer grits are made to achieve the desired smoothness and matte finish.
  4. Cleaning: After honing, we thoroughly clean the marble surface to remove any remaining abrasive particles, slurry, and water. This step ensures that the surface is debris-free and ready for sealing.
  5. Sealing: A high-quality sealant is applied to the honed marble surface to protect it from future stains and damage. Sealing helps maintain the marble’s appearance and durability, providing a protective barrier that keeps your floors and countertops looking beautiful.
  6. Final Inspection: Once the honing and sealing are complete, we conduct a final inspection to ensure that every detail meets our high-quality standards. We ensure your marble surfaces are smooth, polished, and properly sealed, guaranteeing your satisfaction.

Following this meticulous process, Kiwi Services ensures that your marble surfaces receive the best care. Our expertise, combined with advanced techniques and eco-friendly products, delivers outstanding results that enhance the beauty and longevity of your marble—Trust Kiwi Services to keep your marble surfaces looking their best.

Kiwi Services’ Advanced Equipment for Marble Honing

We use state-of-the-art equipment at Kiwi Services to ensure the highest quality marble honing. Our specialized tools and techniques allow us to restore the beauty of your marble surfaces effectively and efficiently. Here’s an overview of the equipment we use:

  • Diamond Abrasive Pads: Diamond abrasive pads are essential for the honing process. These pads come in various grits, from coarse to fine, and are used to grind and smooth the marble surface. The diamond abrasives effectively remove scratches, etches, and stains, providing a smooth and uniform finish.
  • Handheld Polishers and Grinders: We use handheld polishers and grinders equipped with diamond abrasive pads for precise control, especially on smaller surfaces or edges. These tools allow our technicians to hone the marble surface accurately, ensuring an even and consistent finish.
  • Floor Buffing Machines: We use floor buffing machines with diamond abrasive pads for larger surfaces, such as marble floors. These machines cover more area efficiently and ensure a uniform honing process. The weight and rotational speed combination helps achieve a smooth, matte finish.
  • Water Supply System: A continuous water supply system is used during the honing process to lubricate the surface, reduce friction, and prevent overheating. The water also helps to carry away the slurry produced during honing, keeping the surface clean and preventing damage.
  • Vacuum or Wet-Dry Vac: We use a vacuum or wet-dry vac to remove the slurry and water from the marble surface during and after the honing process. This ensures that the area remains clean and that no abrasive particles are left behind, which could affect the quality of the finish.
  • Sealant and Applicators: After honing, we apply a high-quality sealant to the marble surface to protect it from stains and damage. We use appropriate applicators, such as brushes or rollers, to ensure an even application of the sealant, providing a protective barrier that enhances the durability and appearance of the marble

Kiwi Services uses this specialized equipment to ensure that your marble surfaces receive the best possible care. Our advanced tools and techniques, combined with our expertise, deliver exceptional results that restore the beauty and longevity of your marble floors and countertops—Trust Kiwi Services to provide the professional care your marble surfaces deserve.
