Impregnation for Natural Stone Protection

Impregnants also is known as sealers, after application on surfaces of materials like marble, granite, concrete, grout, terrazzo, the absorption of material decreases by 4-10 times. As a result, a time of leaving spillage on the surface of the stone increases, which makes it possible to wipe and clean up it without leaving a stains.

How do impregnants work?

1. Qualitative protective impregnation works on the principle of “umbrella”, allows the stone surface to breathe, but does not allow water to penetrate inside.

2. The water-repellent effect of the “umbrella” is created by filling pores of the stone with a protective substance. Chemical protection doesn’t allow water to penetrate inside, but it allows water to evaporate from inside out of stone.

3. Water-repellent impregnation, however, is not effective in the case of oil stains that can penetrate through molecules of a protective layer.

4. Therefore, it is necessary to use water-repellent and oil-repellent impregnation, which not only protects against penetration of water but also oil stains.

How to Apply?

Stone impregnation is a simple procedure and does not require special knowledge. The key point in this process is surface cleaning before impregnation and removal of excess impregnant after absorption.

How often should the stone be impregnated?

Impregnants over time change their properties, so it is much easier and cheaper to re-impregnate the stone than pay for its restoration and stains removal. The frequency of impregnation depends on the type of stone and kind of finish.

More porous and frequently used surfaces should be impregnated every 1-3 years. Less porous stones can be impregnated every 3-5 years.

    Eugene blew us away with how fantastic our bathroom turned out. We recently moved into an apartment and were disappointed by how poorly the marble stone was kept. A friend recommended Eugene, he was very responsive and professional. You can tell he takes pride in his work. He spent two full days polishing, cleaning, caulking and grouting the entire bathroom and it looks like new. Before he left we asked for a proposal for the kitchen! I highly recommend him and would use him for every stone job we have moving forward.
    He is simply the best.

    The first, I was impressed with how fast they got back to me after asking for a quote. Eugene was professional, fast, and keep his promises. He communicates well and it was very easy to work with him, and I was very pleased. It is very important to me that people who I work with is professional and trustworthy. I can see a long-term relationship with them and am very happy to find them. By the way I found them by looking for an answer on Houzz for my question about my furniture.

    Eugene did right by us! Lowest estimate of several I received, but no corners cut. Very patient answering all my questions by email, super professional and respectful in my apartment, including thorough cleanup, and my counters look great!

    Eugene was great. My contractor ruined our "travertine" floors. Our contractor used the wrong grout and my pale colored stone floors looked dirty. Eugene to the rescue! Eugene scrubbed, polished and regrouted the bathroom stone floor and it looks just the way it was meant to. Eugene told us that the stone was really limestone. He was quiet and went straight to work. I found him to be very respectful. He saw we had new flooring in the house and took off his shoes. Class act. We highly recommend Eugene. Now my family can finally move into our first home.

    Eugene absolutely saved the day for us, and we are so grateful. With only 3 days left to move out of our BK apt, our movers cracked a priceless family heirloom marble dresser top. We were devastated! A friend of mine who does object restoration for museums gave me ABC's website, and Eugene spent a day communicating with me, and came, to our home (in a mask) the very next day and restored our marble on location and in our tight time frame. When he was finished, it was stunning, and we are beyond grateful to him. I hope I never need his services again, but I strongly recommend him to others. At the end, he even helped us correctly package the marble for our move so we didn't need to have the movers risk harming the marble again. We are so grateful to him!
