A Guide to Marble Floor Restoration

Take Me To Post Comment Form


Marbles are generally veined, fine-textured materials that come in virtually unlimited color selections. The two categories that have made marble a treasure for centuries are its beauty and utility. When newly installed, marble floors have a glossy and reflective finish that adds a touch of elegance to a room. Over the time, the look and finish of this stone starts to dim as the tiles become dull and scratched. The good news is that you can restore your floor finish and make it look as good as it was on the day of installation.

Below mentioned are certain key steps for marble floor restoration that can make your marble floors look timeless:

Grinding

Grinding is the first and most important step in the restoration of marble floors. Also known as lippage removal process or flattening process, grinding is the most effective and versatile step that helps to remove roughness and ledges from the marble floors, making them look flat, smooth and even. The deepest scratches and stains are also removed under the grinding process.

Honing

Creating a honed surface generally means leaving the surface smooth and flat with a matte finish. It is simply a method of buffing the stone and creating a more even surface. This step is used to add more shine and uniform appearance to the marble floors by removing stains and scratches. After honing, the surface needs to be sealed immediately otherwise the honed marble will act like a sponge and soak up any liquids that spill on it.

Polishing

Polishing is the most important step in the restoration of marble floors. Polishing is required to give your marble floors, a crystal clear look and appearance. This is usually achieved with the help of industrial smaller graded diamonds. Polishing is the most effective way to bring back the original shine of marble stones.

Crystallization

With crystallization, the entire process of floor grinding and polishing ends. This method is used to bring mirror like shine in the marble floors through chemical reaction on the surface of marble. Crystallization is a powerful, effective and durable step that helps to preserve the color and brightness of the marble.

With all the above mentioned techniques, you can breathe a new life into your marble floors. Look for professionals who can provide the best quality marble floor restoration services.
