Lot of variables. quality of the sattillo, is it coated and if it is the coating must come off to allow it to dry "not fun work" after it dries you must acid wash to best remove salts. Careful when we strip we will only due with jasco liquid or similar stripper using push brooms since if you get to aggressive and abrate and ruin the stone. After it is acid washed and rinsed it must be allowed try fully dry (at least 3 days) the longer the better before resealing or the sealer will emulsify and turn chalky/white. Also I would never coat an exterior sattillo install with a top coat if the customer wants a top coat outside I will not do it. Another problem with stripping is there is a better than average chance you will damage baseboards, painted and stained surfaces the but to the stone so make sure you protect yourself in the contract.
These are very difficult and time consuming jobs that very rarely get perfect results like we expect on marble.
Good luck and be careful, Bill Selik

Yes but hard work. We had a project a while back and scoured the surface with an 80 grit Malish brush, that removed all of the sediment. Then it's just a matter of finishing with higher grit brushes and sealers.
I have some good before and after pictures but I can't seem to upload them from my phone. Will try later when I have an internet connection.

One of our Partners in Houston has asked me to post this question because due to the floods they have been experiencing, they are having Internet issues.
His question is this: If a Saltillo floor has gone through a flood, can it be restored or is it best for the client just to have the Saltillo replaced? Everyone's input would be very much appreciated.
