Granite floors are some of the most durable, attractive floors available for homes and businesses alike. But like all stone floors, granite can eventually start to show the wear and tear of time and traffic. Although regular floor maintenance can help extend the lifespan of your granite floors, you may eventually require granite floor restoration services.
At ACT Restoration in Minnesota, our floor restoration specialists work with homeowners and business owners to maintain beautiful granite and stone floors. In this post, we’re sharing five signs that your granite floors are due for restoration. Give us a call to schedule your Twin Cities area granite floor services.
1. There are obvious cracks or holes in your floor.
Although regular foot traffic isn’t likely to cause significant holes or cracks in your floor, heavy loads and impacts can cause the surface to fracture. When traffic continues over even minor floor damage, these spots can spread and become much more significant over time.
Additionally, an unsealed floor is more vulnerable to these types of cracks and damage. If your floor becomes dull, it’s time to have it refinished and resealed to protect against holes, cracks, and damage.
2. Scratches and etching are significant.
As noted above, when your floor’s seal begins to wear off, it can begin to look dull and become more vulnerable to damage. However, if this dullness is due to numerous cumulative scratches, it’s time to consider granite floor restoration.
3. The floor is discolored.
Although granite is incredibly durable, it can become discolored from coming into contact with certain substances when the sealant becomes weakened. Causes of discoloration can include prolonged exposure to heat and UV rays, acidic foods and beverages, mildew, mold, and even pigments and oils in cosmetics.
4. You’re planning to resell your home.
One of the best ways to impress potential buyers is with an elegant, newly restored granite floor. A scratched and worn floor may not stand out to you as the seller, but you’d be surprised how much impact you can get out of a beautiful granite floor in showroom condition. This small detail may even help you get more out of your asking price.
5. The floors haven’t been well-maintained.
Ideally, granite floors should undergo professional maintenance about once every year or two. If you’ve recently purchased a home and the granite floors haven’t been maintained regularly, it’s a good idea to start fresh and schedule granite floor restoration services.
