marble floor polishing: 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

Can you put wax on a marble floor?
Granite Hero Hints: Marble Cleaning & Maintenance Tips

GRANITE HERO HINT: Conventional floor waxes should not be used on marble floors. Wax is an acrylic topical coating that does not allow the stone to breath and will cause discoloration and streaking. Professional contractors use buffers and specialty cleaners, and diamond resin pads.  If the marble is dull then you need the surface to be honed and then re-polished. DO NOT USE an acid or bleach cleaner on the marble.

Hello Granite Heroes fans. Today I want to talk about Marble flooring for residential and commercial services. I would say 90% of the time we speak to someone over the phone they tell us the stone they have is Granite or Marble. Most of the time when we come to your home or place of business it is something different. This is okay to not know. I have found that home owners have not been educated on how to maintenance their marble floors or what to expect.
