Marble Floor Polishing can be performed using many methods and procedures. But there is only one method that will make a polish last and is safe for your floor. Advanced Stone Restoration uses the most advanced method of natural polishing. We do not use waxes, topical coatings, crystallization, or vitrification methods.
In order to polish any natural stone, an evaluation is needed to determine the proper procedure. Most marble floors lose their shine by abrasion (i.e. foot traffic, dirt, debris, etc.), etching (i.e. acidic spills - from fruit drinks, vinegar, shoyu, pasta sauce, etc.), and scratches (i.e. moving furniture, equipment, and so forth).
Upon evaluation of the damage or wear, our stone specialist can determine what starting grit for resurfacing is needed before polishing. The more damage which needs to be rectified, the more steps are needed to attain a high shine with excellent clarity. Naturally, this reflects on the price to perform work.
Beware of companies that claim they can polish floors at a cheap price. Most times they do not resurface before polishing or are using an unsafe method which does not last. Their customers end up with shiny scratches and stains or a topical coating. Not to mention an uneven shine with bad clarity. Floors not properly refinished collect more dust & debris which causes abrasion. This leads to a polish that does not last.
Only an experienced stone specialist is able to identify problems and have corrective answers. So ask as many questions as possible during the evaluation of your natural stone investment.
