Introduction to Marble Floor Polishing

Marble is a metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals and is most commonly found in the form of striking veins of various colours and sizes. The most common marble hues are white, black, and shades of grey. Marble is most commonly used for countertops, floor tiles, sculptures, and decorative artefacts ranging from table tops to vases.

Marble floor polishing and restoration can be done by professional, using specialized equipment and procedures. This type of restoration typically involves the use of diamond-impregnated pads, abrasives, and durable sealers. Professional cleaners can clean and restore a heavily trafficked marble floor to its original sheen. In addition to cleansing and polishing, they can also repair damaged, pitted, or cracked marble, fill in gaps, and re-grit marble floors.

Marble is a metamorphic rock that is formed when limestone is exposed to incredibly high pressure and temperature. It’s most common uses include floor tiles, sculptures, work tops, table tops and some decorative home furnishings.

Marble restoration services are comprehensive and take into account the customised stone finish that any client may wish to achieve. Marble floors can be finished to create a tailored look from honed to a highly-polished sheen.

Marble Floor Polishing

Once the floor has been deep cleaned, the stone polishing and diamond resurfacing phase can then be employed for the tiled floor. We complete this process by using a graduated range of abrasive pads.

These diamond pads slowly grind down the surface of the stone tile. This removes scuffs, scratches and even some staining. Once we have graduated to finer grades of abrasive pads, the surface is honed to an incredibly smooth finish. This repeated process is what produces a high-shine and high-gloss finish. Our expert provision can confidently offer a reflective finish; with this we work conscientiously to offer information and advice on the additional maintenance that can be required. This forms part of our unrivalled standards of customer care. Polished marble is then fully sealed to offer protection against wear and tear. Marble polishing works to enhance the natural beauty of the tile. Stone floor sealing is vitally important for natural stone; it helps your marble floor look cleaner for longer and will work to repel etching and staining.
