Natural stone is extremely delicate, and can be damaged by dirt and debris tracked in from the outdoors. The use of harsh chemicals or acidic cooking substances can easily remove the finish of many stone surfaces. In order to restore these materials to their proper finish, technical skill and experience is required.
The Marble Clinic is an industry expert in the cleaning and sealing of stone surfaces; our protection service drastically prolongs the life of all marble, granite and limestone surfaces. Depending on the level of wear and tear the area in question receives, we recommend sealing stone surfaces every three to five years – depending on maintenance.
The Marble Clinic provides a range of maintenance programs to accomodate residential and commercial customers with monthly, quarterly or annual service calls. This greatly increases the longevity of the stone, and prevents the need for large restoration projects.
Using the highest quality compounds and professional refinishing techniques, The Marble Clinic can alter the finish of natural stone surfaces, to meet the needs of diverse projects. Does the high gloss finish suit your design? Maybe something on the matte side? The choice is all up to you!

Natural stone requires the ability to oxygenate or breathe in order to age correctly. Waxing the surface prevents this ability by clogging all the pours, often resulting in discolouration and an unclear plastic like shine. Remove the discoloured wax and restore the natural look stone was intended for!
No matter how often you clean your floors, over time grout accumulates dirt and debris. Professionally cleaning and sealing your grout will drastically improve the overall look of your tile; while helping make future routine cleaning more effective.
When tiles are poorly installed, the height differential from one tile to the next is called a ‘lip’. Lippage removal is then the deep grinding of these lips to smoothen the floor and create a slab like effect.
