Marble polishing is a very important step in the marble stone restoration process.
Just polishing marble without honing, will not remove unwanted etch marks or accumulation of scratches.
Honing the marble is always recommended before polishing.
Honing is the complex process of restoring marble floors or other surfaces with the use of diamond encrusted
pads to scratch, or hone the marble surface.
Honing marble first starts with a course grit diamond pad, removing a layer of marble and continuing on to finer grit
diamond pads to attain the desired polished finish.
The last few honing steps are actually mechanically
Once the marble surface begins to have some reflective properties, the last step is to polish the marble with
This step is actually chemically polishing as opposed to mechanically polishing, and should only be done after
the honing process.
An etch mark on marble occurs when an acidic liquid comes in contact with a marble surface reacting with the
calcium in the marble.
If the etch mark is not too severe, sometimes polishing with a powder will remove the etch mark.
However, if the etch mark is too deep, honing is necessary to remove the etch mark and then can be polished.
We have polished many different marble surfaces like
marble coffee tables,
and marble vanities and kitchen countertops.
In general, mopping tile floors regularly with a
neutral floor cleaner
and a flat mop, will be the best and easiest way to maintain the tile floors.
Polishing Marble Floors
If you have marble floors in your home or place of business, eventually the will need to be polished.
However, if it's been a while since they were installed, it's most likely they will need to be honed first, before marble polishing
In some cases, we are able to do just a polishing step to restore the brillant finish, but this is rare.
Polishing marble floors or marble stone restoration is a multi-step process and sometimes can take more than a day to do if the
floor is quite large.
Because honing marble floors is a done in conjunction with water as a lubricant, there is no dust associated with the process.
After each honing step and marble polishing step, all the excess water is vacuumed up.
When it comes to marble polishing or just maintaining natural stone and tile and grout, we strive to help educate our
customers on the best protection they can have, helping them save time and money in costly restoration costs down the road.
