Over time marble can be come scratched and dull. Remove a scratch from marble and lime stone is very similar to remove one from wood. Using different grit diamonds, similar to sand paper grits, you can remove the scratch and repolish the tiles.
Scratches cam be caused by a number of things. Dragging furniture, general wear and tare, and incorrect maintenance can all causes issues with your floor.
To remove the damage the floor is cut back with a very rough diamond grit. Normally we start at around 100 grit or 200 grit. This cut the floor and cuts past the scratch or damage. The floor become dull and much rougher than when it was polished. You can see below a very dull marble floor that has been diamond ground.
Once the damage has been removed, we them work the floor with a 400 grit, 800 grit and 1500 grit diamond.
At 1500 grit most stones are are ready for polishing. This crema marfil marble floor was then polished using a specialist polish powder to give it a wonder mirror shine with all the damage removed
