Stone Restoration & Maintenance

A marbled surface is undeniably gorgeous to look at. You must have seen it used in tiles, floors, countertops and even walls of most upscale homes. Its sleek, alluring and tough nature makes it one of the most valuable natural stones around.

The stone provides a reflective, glossy and palatial touch. But again, despite its tough nature, marble is susceptible to wear and tear and with time it can lose its shine particularly in areas that see a lot of traffic. To maintain the elegant touch, marble should be cleaned and polished properly.

Marble Polishing

Polishing is the solution to a dull marble surface. However, polishing is a skill of its own and various precautions should be taken.
The polishing process is done using a state-of-the-art diamond sanding and finishing system that gives it a mirror finish and luster. It is a dust-free procedure that works naturally.
Variable speed function is used and set to the lowest possible speed until the desired polishing is achieved.
High-speed polishing can make the grinding process quick which might not be very efficient. 

Why polish marble?

Hone & Polish to Remove Stains 

Since marble is primarily composed of calcium bicarbonate, it is prone to absorb rust and grout stains deep into its pores. Stubborn stains caused by red wine, oil and coffee can only be removed through special polishing and cleaning techniques. 
 

Polishing Marble To Maintain It’s Beauty

 
Engaging in manual cleaning and polishing can consume most of your time and effort. With the help of your trusted marble polishing expert, you can be sure that the task will be done professionally according to industry standards. Marble can be tough but also delicate at the same time. Therefore, polishing it on your own can result in damages that can be costly to fix especially when you use solvents such as alkalis, acids or other chemicals. 
 

Diamond Hone to Remove Etch Marks

 

When marble comes into contact with harsh chemicals and other cleaning agents, it often develops etch marks that can be hard to clean. Such marks can result in a dull and light colored surface. Polishing can remove the deepest rooted spots.

Marble Sealing

Polishing is accompanied by sealing. Sealants not only makes marble water and oil retardant but also allows it to breathe. The most popular sealants include impregnator and topical sealants. Topical sit on marble’s surface while impregnators sip deep inside the surface making the stone resistant to both water and oil retardant. 
Before sealing, it is vital to understand that not all types of marble need sealing. Cultured marble is strong and doesn’t need any sealants. Similarly, marble in the shower doesn’t require sealing unless you use staining products. 

Marble Repair 

Marble can also develop burns, gouges, cracks, chips or scratches which can be very conspicuous. Rather than replacing the entire floor, countertop or tile, marble can be repaired, polished, sanded and buffed out till the original look is restored.
