Blue Moon utilizes the most advanced tools and techniques for repairing chips or breaks in stone or tile floors and countertops that conceal the damage and prolong the life of your stone surfaces. We select the most appropriate product for your specific type of stone whether it is marble, travertine, limestone, terrazzo, granite or other types of stone.
Chipped floors usually occur when something heavy has been dropped onto the surface with adequate force to cause a piece of the stone to dislodge and leave behind a cavity. Blue Moon Stone Care uses the highest quality modified polyurethane bonding agents and diamond pads to ensure a blended result that meets your satisfaction.
Lippage occurs when an adjacent tile is slightly higher due to improper installation or post-installation settling of the floor. Blue Moon utilizes specialized pads to remove the lippage and blend back in with the balance of the floor. Broken tiles can be salvaged by restoring the damage. If you ever break a piece of stone, ensure that you keep all broken pieces large and small and we will use what we can to help ensure an inconspicuous repair o

The #1 culprit causing damage to floors of all types is soil being tracked into a building by pedestrians.
Certain coatings over time can cause unintended yellowing of floors requiring professional removal.
Our deep scrub n shine service can be performed daily, weekly or monthly to keep it looking its very best.
Yes! Generally speaking we provide free estimates. But there are some circumstances when we might charge a nominal consulting fee. Contact us to discuss your project, and we'll let you know up front.
Many wines, juices, and sodas are acidic in nature and can cause marble (calcium carbonate) to etch, meaning lose its glossy polish. Sealer can prevent staining but cannot stop etching. If the floor lacks a good sealer, there could also be staining involved. The only way to correct this problem is by having the floor professionally restored using our honing, deep cleaning, polishing, and re-sealing process.
Limestone is a softer stone and takes on scratches very easily. That's the bad news. The good news is that, because of its softer status, limestone scratches can usually be honed out using our specialized equipment and diamond abrasive disks or pads.
Our industry recommends "walk-off rugs". These are purposed rugs placed in strategic locations (at the entrances) that catch and hold dirt, grit, grime, and other foreign items pedestrians track or transfer into buildings on the bottoms of their shoes. Here's a couple recommendations: (a) always use a rug-holder underneath your rug for safety and to help prevent coarse threads from scratching the floor, and, (b) Stay away from rugs backed with rubber or latex as they tend to imprint into stone.
Yes, things will get messy because of the wet "slurry" created by cutting the stone or concrete. That's why Blue Moon takes tremendous pre-honing steps to mask, cover, or, otherwise, protect nearby walls, floors, furniture, appliances, equipment, and other surfaces.
Applying sealer, particularly an impregnating or penetrating sealer, is an absolute necessity. A good quality sealer can provide a lifetime of stain protection until it is impacted by something, usually an acid, that dissolves the sealer or renders it useless. While sealants provide protection from staining, they cannot combat the effect of etching. Once etching occurs, the stone will require restorative work.
