7 Tips On Marble Polishing

We know that marble flooring uplifts the elegance of a house. But, you can’t keep the grace of the surface intact forever without proper maintenance and daily care. The most common problems with marble stone are loss of shine, staining, yellowing, stun marks, water rings and spots. Although you can’t totally avoid the daily wear and tear, a caring attitude and few smart cleaning tips can protect your marble flooring and kitchen tops for many years to come and maintain its grace. We’re now ready to share 7 tips for marble polishing here.

7 Tips On Marble Polishing

1. Marble Polishing at Home

Getting back the natural glow of a marble surface can be easy depending on how frequently you clean or polish it. You won’t need to spend too much of your hard earned money on any kind of polishing equipment or tools. You will need a regular drill and a stone grinder at the most. Try the dry marble polishing method because it works really well. The process might create lots of fine dust. So remember to cover the surrounding things and your nose well.

a) You’ll find silicon carbide sandpaper in the market for cleaning a stone. Attach the sandpaper to a round sanding pad. Then attach the sanding pad to a regular drill or a stone grinder.

b) Put moderate pressure when you use the drill or grinder. You should slide the drill or grinder constantly as it’ll be spinning. That’ll be all. You’ll get a shining marble floor at the end after following the same process with different grits of sandpaper. The higher the number of grits, the higher the gloss of the marble will be.

2. Another tip for marble restoration will be not to use any polishes containing acrylic or polyurethane.

If it’s a manufactured polish, read the product label before you buy.

3. Be Gentle to Your Floor if It’s Made of Marble

It’s a very soft stone. If you use extremely harsh or acidic solution, it’ll not take much time to react with the limestone present in the marble. Any solution that contains acid will make marble weak and affect its durability. You’ll have to apply a solution that has a neutral pH balance. This type of solution will be strong enough to polish the marble floor, but gentle enough to keep the marble intact.

4. Get Protective Sealer from the Market

Loss of gloss or yellowing of the marble is too common. The problem will be severe if you let your child drop tomato gravy, sauce on it, or the floor comes into the contact of red wine too often. To lock the gloss of a newly polished marble, apply a sealer as per the direction and protect the surface from hard to remove stains. If you care for the marble flooring, try not to spill too acidic solutions on it.

5. Use a Marble Polishing Powder to Remove the Water Rings

This is quite a common problem as the hard-water minerals, like calcium and magnesium, often leave spots when the water dries. This type of problem can be handled with a polishing powder made for the marble floors. If the spots are too deep, it might require honing. Try to apply stone paste wax from time to time to remove the water stains and maintain the natural glow of the stone.

6. A Professional Help for Marble Polishing

Professionals with all required cleansing tools and solutions can help you with marble polishing if the surface condition is already worse. Hire a professional service provider who has the expertise and enough back up to do the marble restoration. A few companies are specialized to tackle this type of marble flooring condition. If you need restoration for a commercial space made of marble, it’s better to hire such experts.

7. Quick Tips for Regular Marble Polishing Maintenance

a) A marble surface can be protected with an area rug or floor mat.

b) If the bathing area is made of marble, every drop of water should be wiped out thoroughly to prevent water stains.

Even if you’ve done a good marble polishing, try to dust or wipe down the surface regularly to keep it clean. There is nothing unusual about the discoloration problem of a marble surface. You just have to learn the quick cleaning and polishing tips so that the surface doesn’t get excessively bad and the polishing process doesn’t become too complicated.
