Marble Grinding and Polishing Lytham St Annes

By On March 29, 2017 No Comments

Marble tiles are one of the most instantly recognisable natural stone tiles. If you ask anyone what they associate with marble it is often described as sophisticated, hard-wearing and expensive.

Marble polishing Lytham Although there is truth in all of these statements it is important that you are well-equipped with the necessary knowledge of how to care of your marble floor if you have one.

These images show a marble grinding and marble polishing job that we completed in Lytham St Annes. When we arrived the marble floor tiles had signs of daily use and wear. It was decided that the tiles needed to be fully restored in order to achieve the best result for our clients.

Marble grinding is the beginning stage of the restoration process. Our machinery uses diamond abrasives to remove surface contaminants and scratches from the surface of the stone tiles.

This part of the programme is made up of different stages and it is important that these are tailored. These need to be tailored in order to reflect the individual care of the particular tiles that you are restoring.

Marble Polishing Lytham St AnnesRestoring marble tiles may be a challenging but it is a process that yields outstanding results. As the top layer is removed, it reveals a flawless new surface underneath.

This new surface can then be polished to varying levels in order to achieve either a honed finish or a polished one.

The beautiful finish was selected by our client and they were so pleased with the results that we achieved through our professional service. The marble floor was left fully sealed and looking great. Sealed tiles offer resistance against wear and damage.

Marble cleaning and restoration does demand a skilled approach. One which we take great pride in! If you would like to enquire about our stone polishing provision please call today on 0800 852 7177.

Although the images show an instant result; hard work was put in to achieve this! After the tiles were thoroughly cleaned we began using a course-grit sanding paper, working through to a fine-grit paper to achieve the polished look.

The floor tiles were fully sealed to make sure that they were equipped to deal with every day wear and tear and any possible liquid spillages. Stone floor sealing is so important for any natural stone; it can both help your tiles look cleaner for longer and it will work to repel etching, water marks or staining that can easily be caused by any liquid touching the tile.

We spent time with the customer discussing their regular cleaning routine and identified that the owner had been maintaining the floor with a steam mop and unsuitable cleaning products.

This meant that there was a gradual deterioration of the finish on the marble floor tiles and if not restored appropriately; this decline would likely continue.

Marble Restoration Clitheroe

Marble is arguably one of the most recognisable and well-known stone tile; it really enhances any room where it is laid. Years of use and wear had left this marble flooring looking dull which was not the statement that our clients wanted to make to people visiting their home.

How was this marble restoration completed?

Marble Grinding:

This process stripped back the existing surface of the marble tiles. It removed any remaining coatings, delamination and other issues that had occurred over time. This technique employed the use of our state-of-the-art machinery.

Marble Polishing:

This process offered further grinding with diamond grinders that provided a smooth and reflective finish. The level to which this is completed depends on the finish that our individual clients would like to achieve. We were asked to provide a high-shine for this job.

Marble Sealing:

Sealing marble will make sure that the marble restoration results are long-lasting. It will give the stone a natural resilience against liquid spills. In this case we sealed the stone with a colour enhancing impregnator.

Below is a selection of the before and after images from this marble cleaning project; the results really do speak for themselves and we felt as though these images show the versatility of marble.
