Tile Polishing: This is the next step to restoring the look of your stone floors. After they have been cleaned and prepped, Las Vegas Floor Restoration will come in and polish the floors to bring some smoothness and shine to the floors. The natural stone does not have a shine to it so the process of polishing will add the shine that makes the stone look clean and beautiful. The polishing process is done with a machine that will slowly rotate polishing brushes on the floor to add shine. When the shining process is over, the tile and grout are ready to be sealed.
