Onyx: A Delicate and Exotic Stone
We deliver expert care for onyx, a truly stunning stone known for its incredibly rich colors and luminosity.

Are your onyx surfaces too dull or too shiny? Call Surface Care and specify the finish you want. If you have a new floor with some tiles that look more glossy than others – let us even out the finish for you. Whether you have or are seeking to acquire a gloss, semi-gloss or matte finish, our knowledgeable technicians can deliver a beautifully restored finish for all your onyx surfaces.
Lippage Removal and Grinding
When tiles are set unevenly, this is called lippage. Aside from detracting from the beauty of your installation, lippage can create a trip and fall hazard. You need not replace the entire floor, because our expert technicians can grind the stone to a uniform, flat surface. The honed or polished end result will look as good or better than when the floor was first installed.
Onyx Honing & Polishing
A calcium-based stone, onyx reacts to acids found in lemon, wine, cleaners, and other substances, which can result in etch marks on the stone’s surface. Our expert technicians can hone your onyx countertops, furniture tops, walls, floors and other surfaces to eliminate etching, wear patterns, scratches, dullness and other problems. They can also achieve a honed or soft matte finish that is warm, inviting, and velvety smooth.
Surface Care can also polish your onyx using the appropriate diamond-infused pads or polishing powders to provide a beautiful, glass-like polish.
Once your surfaces are restored to their original beauty, we highly recommend having your onyx sealed to enhance its stain resistance. Most stones (unless resined) are naturally porous. If left unsealed, there’s always a risk of spilling a colored or reactive liquid, resulting in stone discoloration. While most stains can be removed, onyx stain removal can be time consuming, expensive and often frustrating. Sealing your onyx surfaces represents an inexpensive, preventative measure against stain damage.
