STONE SEALING

Stone surfaces are by nature extremely porous and are predisposed to staining, dirt and mould build up through normal use. As such we highly recommend that all stone surfaces used in kitchens, bathrooms and on floors should be sealed for protection.

Depending on the type of stone, its location and degree of exposure to potential damage, Mirror Image Marble has an impressive repertoire of world class, cutting-edge technology, suitable for any residential or commercial stone surface requiring restoration, enhancement and protection.

Kitchen Marble
STONE PROTECTION FOR KITCHENS

If you have a natural stone benchtop in your kitchen, we highly recommend you have it sealed to protect against staining, spills, etching and general wear and tear.

By sealing your kitchen benchtops we guarantee :-

  • A totally sealed surface that has outstanding stain proof and etch proof qualities including protection from everyday items such as red wine, vinegar, lemon juice, soy sauce, coffee etc.
  • A 100% hygienic surface that does not harbor bacteria
  • A completely smooth surface sealing and covering open fissures, cavities, faults and joins
  • A worry free practical work surface that looks totally natural
  • An invisible coating that can be finished to the same appearance as natural honed stone, or finished to varying levels of gloss as required.

SHOULD I SEAL MY RECONSTITUTED BENCHTOP?

No. Benchtops such as Caesarstone, Essa Stone, Smart Stone Quantum Quartz and other imported reconstituted stone benchtops should not require sealing.

Most brands offer a warranty and in fact if staining does occur, we advise to call the manufacturer for advice. Should you require further assistance, call us at Mirror Image Marble to determine the right solution for you.

Bathroom Marble
STONE PROTECTION FOR BATHROOMS

Today natural stone remains the luxurious material of choice for bathroom floors, walls and vanities as specified by leading architects and designers.

However bathrooms are exposed daily to various chemicals through contact with makeup, perfumes, soaps, shampoos and conditioners.

At Mirror Image Marble, we highly recommend that porous stones such as marble be sealed on bathroom vanities and walls.

Once stone surfaces are correctly sealed, not only is cleaning simplified by reducing the amount of mould, dirt and soap scum build up, but liquids are prevented from penetrating into the surface of the stone avoiding staining and discolouration.

While sealing stone vanities is important to prevent exposure to chemicals, sealing marble showers is also crucial. As the shower is one of the most heavily used surfaces in the household, being in frequent contact with soaps, shampoos and cleaners that can rapidly deteriorate the stone surface, protection of stone in this area assists in maintaining the aesthetics and integrity of your selected stone finish.

By sealing your bathroom vanities we guarantee :-

  • A totally sealed surface that has outstanding stain proof and etch proof qualities including protection from everyday items such as soap scum, shampoos, conditioners, makeup, nail polish remover and perfumes etc
  • A 100% hygienic surface that does not harbor bacteria
  • A completely smooth surface sealing and covering open fissures, cavities, faults and joins
  • A worry free practical bathroom surface that looks totally natural
  • An invisible coating that can be finished to the same appearance as natural honed stone, or finished to varying levels of gloss as required.
