Jerusalem Limestone Refinished

Problem: Etching and Stains around Toilet

This client had a combination of water and urine stains around the toilet and near the shower entrance. The severe etching could also be due to the use of acid cleaners - the mist will breach the surface if not cleaned up immediately.

Our Solution

Potomac Stonecare diamond ground the surface with a floor machine and used a small hand machine to get into tight spaces around the toilet and vanity.

About Jerusalem Limestone

Jerusalem stone has a lot of history and character. It is a variety of limestone extracted from the hills of Jerusalem. This durable stone has been used since biblical times and is still very popular today. It usually has veining throughout and comes in white, pink, yellow, salmon, beige and gray.

Jerusalem stone is more durable than other limestone products, but it can still get chips, scratches, and etching unless it is properly sealed. It can also be honed and polished or left natural for a rustic, ancient look.
