Keeping your floor clean using any dust mop, and washing with a very mild solution of dish soap and plain water will restore the shine. Marble requires more maintenance as this natural stone is soft and porous. Tiny pores and cracks, some of which you cannot see without a magnifying glass, are what fill up with dirt and kills the shine on your floor. You must buff the floor to bring back the original luster if the floor has been scuffed or scratched. If you have dogs, there will be no way short of keeping them off, that will prevent their claws from scratching the surface of your floor.
Cleaning marble flooring usually costs the same. Be it the ground floor or the topmost, the process of cleaning marble floors is the same. The only thing affecting is the no. of floors that you live on. The cost would increase gradually according to that. Something like when you shift in a high-rise building, the guy moving would ask for much more if it’s the 8th floor instead of the 1st one.
The floor restoration procedure typically takes 4 steps:
It’s the most powerful and dynamic step, also known as lippage removal or flattening. Even newly installed marble floors can have some tiles be upper or lower of floor flatness. This step removes all ledges and roughness and brings flatness to marble floors. Also, this step can remove the deepest scratches and stains.
Honing is the step of floor restoration that provides smoothing of the marble floor with industrial diamonds, which brings up more shine to the marble. The process of honing will also remove scratches and stains and give a more uniform appearance. In some cases, honing is all needed to make your stone look spectacular again.
Polishing gives a semi-shining or shining effect to the marble floor. It’s a very common method in the marble floor cleaning process. Polishing is done by industrial diamonds, but with smaller graded, than while honing. For marble floors in good condition, polishing can be enough to bring back the shine.
Crystallization is a method of marble floor finishing. It brings a “mirror-like” shine by chemical reaction on the surface of the marble. Crystallization also creates a microfilm on the surface of the marble, which is more solid and durable and helps preserve the marble’s color and brightness. Crystallization is an excellent method for regular stone maintenance.
