marble: Marble Floor Polishing Contractors Burr Ridge IL 60527 - 12/07/18 11:05 AM
 
Burr Ridge Marble Floor Restoration Step 1:As you can see in these before pictures , first thing we did was clean and neutralize the floor before we started honing the marble.  This bathroom floor was cleaned with a toilet bowl cleaner and etched the floor along the grout joints and left spots  all over the tile.  Leaving the surface acidic increases the likelihood of the spots and etching to come back. After we concluded this process the floor was prepped and ready for the honing and polishing phase of the restoration project
