Tis the Season to Polish Your Marble, Fa-la-la-la…

Marble-HomeThe holiday season is almost here; and, if you plan on having guests at your home or festivities involving large numbers of people, you want your home to look its best. Why go to all the trouble to clean and decorate if you’re placing your platters on scratched and scuffed surfaces? Marble is a highly porous type of rock and can lose its luster relatively quickly compared to other rocks used in your home. Granite, for example, is a harder surface and requires less polishing than marble. People choose marble for its beauty and its wide variety of natural designs and colors, but that beauty comes with some maintenance to keep it looking its best. This holiday season you want your investment to look its best, so invest in marble polishing products or services.

We often offer our recommended products and surfaces to clients, as well as marble polishing tips for those with the ability to do it themselves. Many people are very DIY-oriented so directions and products can usually work out well to keep up the beauty of their marble when done consistently. However, with everything else to do during the holidays, a large DIY undertaking like marble polishing may not be something people want to invest their time in. Our level of expertise, equipment and industrial grade products enable us to get in and out same day, leaving you with beautiful marble before you even return from work or errands.

You bought a beautiful product when you purchased marble. With the proper maintenance and care, it will stay that way. This holiday season, make your home shine! This time of year gets very busy, so you may wish to have your marble resurfaced or polished now rather than later, so call today to get on the schedule.

Caring for Your Granite Floors

Granite-FloorsBeautiful Stone

Classic Marble Restoration Inc. offers professional granite repair at commercial and residential properties. Granite is a beautiful stone available in a variety of colors that makes it perfect for countertops, floors and fireplaces. All of these surfaces collect grime from food preparation, foot traffic or soot, requiring a specialized granite cleaning method to remove.

Porous Material 

While the stone in your home seems durable, it requires a delicate granite restoration process to prevent extensive damage such as deep cracks. When the stone in a building is untreated, we must apply water first to avoid having cleansers seep into the stone. This is because granite is a porous material that absorbs liquids that degrade the stone’s internal structures.

Commercial Cleansers 

Our technicians use a small amount of commercial cleanser on a soft cloth to rub away food stains from countertops or grass stains from floors. For stone that is sealed, our Classic Marble Restoration technicians must use stripping machines to remove the substances that have often yellowed or peeled, leading to an unattractive appearance. This is a labor intensive process to ensure the stone maintains its integrity.

Improving Sheen

Many of our customers also want expert granite polishing to have a high sheen instead of a matte finish on surfaces. The polishing process on stone requires using expensive equipment with diamond discs that shave away a tiny amount of granite. As the stone is removed, the dust is vacuumed immediately to avoid additional scratches.

Choosing the Right Stone for Your Home

When it comes to choosing a natural stone for your home, you have a variety of options. The types of natural stone each have their own advantages and disadvantages. Which one is better? It really depends on your own personal style preferences and how you wish to use them in your home.

The main thing to consider when choosing a stone for your home is how it will be used. The harder stones, like granite and marble, are best used for areas that will get a lot of usage, like your countertop. Softer stones, like limestone, can be scratched and may be best in places of accent, although many people simply protect their counters using cutting boards, trivets and coasters.

Cleaning and maintaining the stones may also be a factor in the decision you make. Many only require a mild detergent to clean them, but if they are porous, which will allow bacteria to penetrate them, you may need to use harsher cleaning agents. How much work do you want to put in to keep them looking good should play a factor in your decision.

If you are considering a change in your home, Classic Marble Restoration, Inc. can help you to determine which of the natural stones may be right for your home, whether it is travertine, terrazzo or another type of stone.

Maintaining Stone’s Sheen

Classic Marble Restoration of Florida provides commercial and residential marble polishing services to help maintain this stone’s sheen. Our trained technicians have worked in a variety of buildings throughout this area for over 10 years. We understand how to care for different types of stone, including granite, quartz and marble to prevent damage from harsh cleansers and tools. Our company uses a specialized machine with diamond particle discs to smooth chips and cracks from stone before vacuuming the fine dust.

Use Soft Cloths

We are happy to provide marble cleaning tips to our clients to help them maintain stone surfaces between professional natural stone restoration appointments. When liquids are spilled on stone countertops or floors, it is a good idea to use a soft cloth to soak up the moisture as quickly as possible. This is because moisture will seep into the porous surface of stone items that do not have sealants. When a stain is left behind by a liquid, never use surfactants with dyes to remove the spots from grout or stone.

Apply Protective Sealants

Our natural stone restoration technicians can remove stains and scratches from tiles located on the interior and exterior of buildings. In addition to removing dirt from floors and countertops carefully, we can replace resins and cements that hold stone tiles firmly in place. To protect marble, quartz or granite from extensive damage caused by dirt, we suggest that clients have us apply fresh coats of wax or sealants.

It is a natural stone, so there are many color choices available that will be sure to match any décor within the home. Marble is available in both a honed or polished finish.

To maintain the beautiful look and feel of marble, it needs to be regularly cleaned and maintained by a professional. There are also marble restoration procedures that can bring the life and beauty back to marble that has been neglected over time.

Whether you’re running a hotel, office or household, Classic Marble Restoration has some handy tips for keeping your natural stone and marble looking flawless and beautiful. It’s important to always protect natural stone and marble with reliable professional grade products.

Refrain from ever using dish detergents to clean natural stone and marble surfaces. Dish soap helps eliminate persistent and unsightly grease from dishes. This is because of its high alkaline components. If you want to keep your natural stone and marble surfaces in tip-top condition, it’s always smart to stay away from high alkalinity, however. Cleaners that have high alkalinity can weaken the defenses of stone impregnators. Stone impregnators are beneficial for keeping stone spotless and stain-free.

If you want to keep marble and natural stone looking as lovely as ever, opt for a cleaner that has a neutral pH. Make sure that the cleaner is labeled as being appropriate for use on stone, too. If you need assistance with marble restoration for hotels, call us now. Do the same if you need natural stone repair for hotels, homes and businesses. Our friendly Classic Marble Restoration staff is waiting for you.

Marble cleaning becomes a necessary process to sustain its aesthetic appearance. This procedure may be desired every year to two years, depending upon the amount of traffic experienced on any given area of floor. At times, it can appear that marble is stained when, in fact, it is simply “etching” that is viewable. Etching is not a stain per se, but is a surface discoloration that can occur from various acidic substances, such as vinegar, bleach, citric acid and even hair spray. Stains result from substances seeping into the stone. Some may be extracted while others cannot. It is important to use the right substances for proper floor cleaning. At Classic Marble Restoration, Inc. we help educate customers on the right methods and substances to use on marble to keep it looking its best.

Natural stone polishing effectively restores a floor’s natural glow.
