Marble Floor Cleaning & Restoration

Marble is a ‘relative’ of limestone, as it is derived from the same material. Available in many colours, marble is used all over the world because of its natural beauty.

Sometimes marble can appear, to the untrained eye, to be damaged beyond repair, but your floors can be restored by specialist honing and polishing. Honing is a satin smooth surface with little light reflection, where as a polished finish has a glossy surface that reflects light, this in turn dramatically emphasises the colours and marking in the marble. Tile & Stone Medic Warwickshire can help you with a one off cleaning and restoration solution, or work with you on a longterm maintenance plan, ensuring your marble will impress your guests for many years.

Marble is porous, easily stained and is etched by acids. Because of this, spilling fruit juices, carbonated drinks or other acid based items will remove the finished surface from your marble.

  • Tile & Stone Medic Warwickshire not only clean and seal marble, but we are also able to restore it by honing or polishing to remove those scratches and etching marks that occur by general use.
  • The process is simple and safe and creates no mess at all.

Marble Cleaning

Because all floors require their own individual needs, perhaps different cleaning solutions, strippers and sealers it is impossible to give an average cost. Some areas of floor are very large and again this will have an impact on the costings as they may take longer to restore. Tile & Stone Medic will either arrrange an onsite visit to assess the floor in question, or, if we do not have local cover in that area, we will talk to you in more detail over the phone and perhaps request that you down load some pictures of the floor to us.

Absolutely! This is one of the most common issues with marble since installations are typically taken to a high level of sheen. Our rotary polishers will have no problem restoring the shine.

No, typically these veins run all the way through marble, so removing abrasions from the surface has little to no effect on the amount of veins in the stone.

We apply a sealer to a floor in order to protect it. Different types of floor, both manmade and natural stone, are vulnerable to different sorts of damage. They can all be harmed by chemicals to a certain degree, even by the acid in food and drink spillages, as they will be very slightly porous. As well as this, they can be worn away by physical damage. Even foot traffic can have a big impact if dust or grit has built up on the floor, since it increases abrasions. A sealant will reduce the chance of a spill becoming a stain by reducing the floor’s ability to absorb liquids. It can also help protect the appearance of the floor by forming a protective barrier. A sealant won’t prevent all damage and it will still wear away over time, but it will help your floors last longer, helping protect your investment. Sealants will even help protect your floor from UV radiation which can lead to fading over the lifespan of a high value stone or tiled floor. We can consult with you to find the best sealant for your floor and the type of use it gets to make sure it receives the best form of protection.

Absolutely. If this was not carried out by those who fitted the floor get in touch immediately to ensure that the appropriate protection can be applied as promptly as possible. We would recommend that this is carried out once the flooring is in place as this means the grout, which is generally more porous, will also be protected.

We have a range of high quality Faber products which will help protect your floors from damage. As every type of floor is different and has myriad uses, we will consult with you to work out the best way to protect your investment. We can apply topical sealants which form a protective layer on top of the floor, or if needed an impregnating sealant, which will be partially absorbed into the stone or tiles. There are many variations of these sealants and as each floor type has unique characteristics and vulnerabilities we can work with you to find and apply the the best kind of protection.

Firstly, a floor should always be sealed when it is first laid. Get in touch with us straight away if this hasn’t been carried out already. It will also need periodic sealing in order to protect the floor on an ongoing basis. How often sealing is required depends on a number of factors such as the specific material used for your flooring and the kind of use it has to survive. For example, a bathroom with natural tiles that is frequently exposed to water may require sealing more often than porcelain tiles in a kitchen. Frequent maintenance, such as sweeping and hoovering up the dust and grit that erodes floors when trodden on can help. Once the sealant is worn away, not only will scratches be more likely, the risk of staining or permanent damage from liquids is drastically increased as there is no protective layer to prevent absorption. If in doubt get in touch with our team of friendly technicians who can discuss your needs.

The process we carry out will depend on your specific floor and the use that it gets. There will be variations for different materials and the finish that you wish to achieve. The process will also be impacted by the full scale of work that we carry out, for example which types of cleaning and restoration are being performed. It is not unusual to apply several layers of sealant if this is necessary and appropriate.
