Marble is a type of rock created deep within the earth under intense heat and pressure. These types of rock are known as metamorphic rock. Marble floors are understandably desirable due to their elegant appearance and it has been a prized material for many centuries which can be seen in Renaissance art and classical Greek and Roman architecture.
Nowadays it is a very popular floor material, with sales increasing drastically in the last five years. Because of its relatively high cost and its impressive aesthetic, people who have marble in the home want to have it looked after properly. It has the advantage of being very durable, and it’s clearly not the type of floor you have to be worried about your pets pawing at or trying to eat. On the other hand, it is a porous rock like other natural stone and so it can be easily stained by spillages if they aren’t cleaned properly. This is why marble isn’t used very often as a countertop, because a glass of red wine could potentially ruin this type of material!
If you want to avoid your marble floors from becoming permanently discoloured by spilt acidic substances you need to wipe any such spillage up immediately with a damp cloth. For longer term protection against this type of problem, and to avoid dirt from building up, sealing this type of flooring is very helpful. Since people buy marble for its stylish look, it’s important to keep it well maintained by polishing it regularly.

We not only clean and seal floors with minimum disruption to your home and business, but we also have plenty of tips for our customers to keep marble floors in good condition since we know we can’t be there all the time!
How we clean marble floors
We have 2 types of cleans for your beautiful marble floors, the clean and polish for dirty floors that have lost there shine and the grind and polish for dirty scratched floors that have lost there shine, each procedure is chosen at the survey stage when we come out to look at and inspect the floor.
If your floor is just dirty and gone a bit dull we can use our clean and polish to get it looking grande again.
First step is to sheet up, we do this to protect the surrounding areas from splashes and water damage.
We then proceed with wetting the floor with a heavy duty cleaning solution to break down the surface soiling. We use a rotary machine with brush attachments to scrub the solution with a manual grout brush to help clean the grout and a hand brush to clean the edges, then once the floor is completely clean It’s time for the rinse using our special gecko wand, this wand allows us to jet hot water onto the floor without making a mess and spraying water everywhere. It has a contained head which is surround by a rubber squeegee to contain the water, it also has a vacuum attached to suck up all the water which then goes straight back to our van out side.
The floor is inspected for any missed soiling, if found then we clean again until we are satisfied with the results, we can now move on to the polish, marble looks great with a beautiful shine so we use our rotary with heavy weights and a diamond pad to polish the floor, assisted with polishing powder we and water we start to bring the shine back to the floor, once finished we extract the final moisture and leave to dry. Sealers are then added to the floor to complete the job leaving your floor stunning to look at and easy to maintain.
If the floor is scratched and marked then we grind out those scratches using diamond pucks, we use a 3 stage system to get your floors completely back to there original beautiful look and feel, step one pucks to get rid of the scratches, step 2 the starts to close the floor up and smooth it out then we finish with the polishing pad to give the floor that brilliant shine again. This is followed by an application of sealer to finish the job and protect the floor, making it easy to maintain for a longer lasting clean.
