Accidents happen and marble can experience problems with wear, etching, improper cleaning agents, scratches, or loss of shine. Restoring marble regardless of floor, vanity's, shower etc. may require a "3 phase procedure" to effectively restore the surface. The 3 phases are grinding, honing & polishing. This procedure is guaranteed to remove etching, deep scratches, excessive wear and dulling. Tiles with "high edges" or lippage, may need to be ground down before being polished to its intended finish. We use species specific sealers to enhance & bring out every detail in the marble. Projects requiring chip & crack repair we use a variety of adhesives and filling additives to fill and fix and type of damage to the marble.

Marble Restoration FAQ's

Since honed marble has a matte finish its more resistant to scratches and etch marks. ... On the other hand, honed marble is more susceptible to stains, so it important to clean them up spills immediately. Since it is matte, when the surface gets wet, it is less slippery than polished making it a great choice for flooring. Counter tops are often finished with a high-polish. A high polished marble is more resistant to staining, but do etch and can scratch easier. This occurs because most high polished marbles have a topical wax burnished into the marble thus creating the high gloss finished product. The finishing wax's & sealers are what can etch or scratch. Basic honing & polishing will fix the issue. Need more help? Call 312-800-1659

A marble floor should last for generations if properly maintained. We recommend your floor should be buffed and sealed every couple of years. Some floors may last up to five years without requiring attention, but this would be in low traffic areas. Most bathroom marble floors require sealing 1 time a year to keep them looking clean and elegant. Contact us now 312-800-1659
