Marble is characterized by its swirls and veins, and there are many varieties of colors to choose from. Marble is extensively used in many applications including sculptures, flooring, countertops, vanities, showers and much more. It can be polished to a glossy smooth finish or honed for a rustic natural finish, based on the quality of the stone and the client's desired look.
Marble is sensitive to acidic substances (such as juice, wine, coffee) and so it can be etched rather easily and therefore requires a proper cleaning and maintenance procedure in order to remain in good condition.
Overtime, marble can build up dirt in its pores and even get chipped, which will make its surface look dull and worn. But we can restore your Marble installation by using our specialized equipment, along with professional grade cleaners, to thoroughly clean the stone and then seal it to help protect it from any further damage in the future.
We know marble. We understand and appreciate its characteristics. Our passion for what we do and a strong commitment to educate our customers on proper care and maintenance is evident in every single job we do here at Total Floor Care.
The misconception that since marble is a stone it does not need any maintenance is far from the truth. All marble needs some type of care and maintenance. Your marble needs depend upon where it is used— floors, walls, countertops, vanities or shower walls.
Marble is generally a softer stone and comes in many colors with different and beautiful veining. Some marbles are harder than others. The truth is that marble will scratch, etch and lose its shine and luster if not maintained properly over time.
To prevent any future damage to the marble we use diamond abrasives to completely flatten the surface and remove any uneven areas that are present. When performing a marble refinishing job we also remove any scratches that are in embedded in the marble, whether they may be surface scratches or deeper in the stone.
Marble has a luster about it that makes it a popular stone to use. It provides an attractive hard shine when well polished, but can quickly lose that hard shine if a marble polishing job is not performed every so often. We use a variety of methods when polishing marble so that it can be restored to its original high gloss, hard shine look. The reason you got marble wasn’t for it to lose its beauty, but rather for it to provide lasting beauty. A marble polishing job can easily solve this problem.
To provide a thorough marble cleaning job we start by removing any dirt that may be caught in the grain of the marble and then go on to disinfect it. We then add a protective sealant to prevent future stains and other unwanted sources that may affect the beauty of the marble. This restricts anything entering the marble such as dirt, water, oil, etc.
