Polishing Marble Surfaces
Polishing marble is a very important step in the marble restoration process. Just polishing marble without honing,
will not remove unwanted etch marks or accumulation of scratches.
Honing is always recommended before polishing.
Honing is the complex process of restoring your marble floor 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 and continues with finer grits to attain the desired
The last few honing steps are actually mechanically polishing the marble.
Once the marble surface begins to have some reflective properties, the last step begins by polishing 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 bad, sometimes polishing with a powder will fix the problem.
However, if the etch mark is too severe, honing is necessary to remove the etch mark and then can be polished.
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.
In some cases, we are able to do just a polishing step to restore the brillant finish, but this is rare.
Sometimes we are called to look at a marble floor that has been etched by some acidic cleaning chemical.
If the marble floor hasn't been etched too badly, we have been successful at bringing back the brillant finish.
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.
