These have their place in the stone restoration. I use them for certain jobs.
What’s twisters again?

That’s what you call a nightmare floor.
Of course protect the wood.
I would try first a simple method and try and reactivate the sealer with the same sealer then buff it dry and into the stone.
If that didn’t work and the install (lippage) isn’t an issue, I go with the twister pads (red to white to yellow)and sand it off the return the stone back to the current look using the twisters.
Twister process I would charge around $1,600.00 mark.

I got a client who just built a new home. They installed 1100 sq ft of travertine combined with wood trim (see photo). They bought the materials through or from Direct Buy and used Direct Buy’s installation contractor. Anyway …… the installer didn’t have a clue they used a sponge to apply Aqua Mix Enrich N Seal and never cleaned up the residue. According to the home owner the installer never cleaned the floor and they can see grout and dirt under the sealer/enhancer as well as foot prints. The owner wants the floor fixed ………. Any ideas on how to work around the wood trim, pricing, ect ? I was thinking about having the wood trim and baseboards removed. The trim has sealer/enhancer on it and I think it would cost less to replace the trim than pay me to work around it. I’ll probably have to level, fill and hone the floor. I was thinking about skipping from area - area with a 13 “ Hawk or would a DS 301 Planetary Polisher be more effective? Any ideas on pricing ? Thanks in advance for any help …..
