What are the best ways of polishing up my old, tired looking floor? 

Very often people think about sanding down the surface with very coarse sandpaper or even using an electric sander but these methods have some serious drawbacks which we’ll get into later on in this article; there’s really nothing like hand-polishing your floors with a good quality polish that you know is going to last. The first thing you need though is one of the best marble polishing powders that are available on the market, you can either purchase this from a specialist online store or even better go to your local quarry and get them to grind it for you fresh.

Once you have your Polishing Powder, the next step is to mix it with water to form a slurry, it’s important that the concentration of slurry is correct so test it on an inconspicuous area first. It should be thick enough to stay on the floor but not too thick that it won’t spread evenly. Now using a good quality applicator pad or brush, apply the slurry liberally over the entire surface and start rubbing it in with a circular motion, don’t forget to get into all the corners and around the edges. The next step is to give it a quick wipe over with a clean, damp cloth to remove any of the remaining slurry and then leave it to dry for 24 hours.

After 24 hours, you can start polishing your floor using a good quality buffing machine and one of the best polishing pads available on the market, this will give your floor that beautiful high-gloss finish. Make sure you work in small areas at a time and keep applying polish as you go, if the polish starts to look a bit dry then add a little more water to the mix. Once you’ve finished buffing the entire floor, just give it a final wipe over with a clean cloth and you’re done.

How to protect your marble floors from scratches and etching?

There are a few things you can do to protect your marble floors from scratches and etching. First, you can use mats or rugs in high traffic areas to prevent dirt and debris from being tracked onto the floor. You should also avoid using harsh cleaning chemicals or abrasive cleaners on the surface of the marble. When cleaning, always use a soft cloth or mop and a mild, pH-neutral cleaner. You should also seal your marble floors regularly to fill in any cracks or pores that could allow dirt or liquids to penetrate the surface and cause damage. Finally, if you do encounter a scratch or etch mark on your marble floor, you try to polish it out with a good quality marble polishing powder.
