Breathing New Life Into Your Limestone
Limestone is a calcium-based stone and can become damaged (etched) by acidic substances. It is susceptible to scratching from tracked-in grit, and dulling from grime and wear. Fortunately, we are experts at dealing with these sensitive types of stone. If your limestone needs restoration due to dullness, scratches, etching, cracks, chips or other damage, we can get it tip-top shape in no time.
Limestone that has become dull and damaged will need professional services to restore its natural beauty and keep it looking its best. At Clean Sweep we know what it takes to make your limestone surfaces look sensational. If your limestone is dirty or dull-looking, scratched, etched, cracked, chipped, or otherwise damaged, don’t replace it!

Refinishing Your Limestone
Is your limestone floor too dull or too shiny? If you have a new floor with some tiles that look more glossy than others – let us even out the finish for you. Whether you have or are seeking to acquire a gloss, semi-gloss or matte finish, we can deliver a beautifully restored or changed limestone finish.
Does your limestone floor have dull areas associated with wear patterns, scratches, etches or spots? Clean Sweep can hone your limestone surfaces to eliminate these imperfections, resulting in a new limestone surface free of damage. With our limestone honing services, our expert technicians can achieve a honed or soft matte finish that is warm, inviting, and velvety smooth.
An uneven finish, dull spots, scratches and etching can diminish the elegant appearance of your limestone floors. Clean Sweep can polish your limestone using the appropriate diamonds or polishing powders to restore the finish you want, whether matte, semi-gloss or gloss finish. With our limestone polishing services, our expert technicians can achieve a beautiful, glass-like polish.
Limestone Lippage Removal / Grinding
Uneven tiles can be both an eyesore and a safety hazard. Clean Sweep can grind away the excess stone (a process called lippage removal) to create a flat, level surface using state-of-the art diamond grinding technology. Once ground to the level and shape desired, the limestone is honed and polished to the finish you want.
Do you have chipped limestone tiles? Are there cracks in your floor? What about broken limestone tiles? Before you replace your limestone, consider having us provide expert limestone repair services. Clean Sweep can fill holes in limestone, fix limestone cracks and chips, blending the repair site with the surrounding area, and honing and polishing it to match the finish on the rest of your limestone floor, countertop or other stone surface.
Replacing Limestone Tile
Although it is rare for a limestone tile to be beyond repair, sometimes tile replacement is necessary. Clean Sweep craftsman can, in many cases, remove your affected tile without damaging neighboring tiles, reinstall the new tile, level the installed tile with the surrounding are, and then match the finish as closely as possible.
Limestone Stain Removal
Clean Sweep can remove limestone stains, as well as limestone discolorations. Whether you are seeking guidance on how to do this yourself or want Clean Sweep to treat your limestone, the original finish of your stone can be restored.
Cleaning and Sealing Limestone
Some natural stone types are more porous than others, and the more porous a natural stone is, the more susceptible it is to staining. Your stone will be easier to keep clean with periodic professional deep cleaning services, using non-acidic, highly-effective cleaning solutions. Once your stone is cleaned and restored, we may recommend you have us seal it to enhance its stain resistance. We say, “May” because not all stone needs to be sealed. Highly polished stone may not even take an impregnating sealer. But, if sealing is recommended, know that sealing represents an inexpensive, preventative measure against stain damage, because it buys you time to wipe up spills before they become stains.
At Clean Sweep we can instruct you on the proper care you should use in cleaning your limestone on a regular basis. We offer a full line of Care Products to assure you are using the proper cleaning product that will help keep your limestone surfaces looking great. We also provide a regularly scheduled maintenance program, upon request.
