What is Granite?
Granite is a very interesting stone. It is made from molten lava that never rose to the surface of the earth, and simply solidified under the earth. Granite is a very hard stone, it has a rating of between 6 and 7 on the Mohs Hardness Scale. For reference, diamond has a rating of 10 and fingernails have a rating of around 2.5. Due to its hardness, there are not very many things that can easily scratch granite.
Granite can be used in many areas around the house, such as flooring, countertops and sinks. Here at Tile Solution Australia, we highly recommend granite as it is of high quality and easy to clean at home. Granite floor tiles are resistant to stains, grease, oil and acid spills. They are usually unaffected when tea, coffee, pasta sauce or oil falls onto them. Mopping is usually the easiest option for granite cleaning, we definitely do not recommend harsh chemicals to be used on your beautiful granite tiling. If your granite tiles are difficult for you to clean or you would simply like professional granite tile cleaning and restoration, please contact us today!
Granite is a relatively cheap option for tiling and comes in a range of colours. These colours can include black, white, brown, grey, orange, gold, red and green. There is sure to be one that suits your home and your style!
Our Granite cleaning and restoration services
Granite cleaning: To deep clean granite tiles, we use a high pressure extraction and scrubbing machine filled with hot water and environmentally friendly degreaser. Read more about our granite cleaning and granite resurfacing process here.
Granite grinding and granite polishing: When grinding and polishing your granite tiles, we always begin with grinding. In this step, we remove any damaged surface material, whilst making sure that we limit the amount of additional surface damage. We then move on to granite polishing to remove any excess material and to produce the best possible planeness. Read more about our grinding and polishing and granite honing process here.
Re-grouting: Regrouting is the removal of old grout and the installation of new grouting, which we usually recommend when old grout begins to deteriorate and discolour. Read more about our re-grouting process here.
