A Quick Guide to Marble Restoration

Marble rehabilitation is the revival of a marble floor whose condition has degenerated to acquire its initial state of good appearance. Marble is commonly used on floors because it has a unique shiny surface with a natural appearance that is attractive to the eye and therefore it is important that whenever it is damaged, the necessary steps for restoring its initial beauty are taken as quickly as possible before permanent damage has happened to it. Many people prefer marble to other flooring materials just because of its ease to polish and therefore making it all beautiful and getting its glamour back again and therefore it is good to make sure that its maintenance is given priority.

Despite their high resistance to damage, the marble floor can occasionally get damaged and therefore will require being repaired as per the extent of damage that has happened to it. In the case where a marble floor has over time become rough and non uniform, grinding can be used in making sure that the floor is restored to a more uniform layout. When a marble floor gets scratched, it will lose its beauty and glamour and to make it look beautiful again, polishing using a very hard material such as diamond will ensure that the scratches are scrapped off making the surface as shinny as it was before damage. On some rare but possible occasions, the marble tiles might be broken due to a result of being hit by falling heavy items and this calls for rush action to repair it which can be done by gluing the broken pieces back together using a suitable adhesive, and this is only possible if the pieces are big enough. Small pits are commonly caused by small falling objects and can be repaired by the use of an epoxy which must be of the same colour as that of the marble floor, so as to hold the chipped out piece in the pit that has been left on the floor.

An object that is not sharp enough to cut into the marble tile but heavier will result in a crack on the surface of the tile, and the crack can be filled up using concrete epoxy or a vinyl compound to fill in and make look normal. Scuff marks are removed from the marble floor by several methods, for example, larger scuff marks are removed by using tennis shoe and rub the spot firmly with heel. Crystallization maintains the marble floor , you need to use diamond pads to grind down the surface of the marble and leave behind a fresh layer off marble, after this, you need to remove the furnishings and complete clean up.
