Our Marble Polishing Services

Whilst our stone cleaning service will remove surface dirt, it is often worth considering the additional benefits of a restoration service. Marble polishing or resurfacing will not only restore the beauty of your floor but also ensure a longer-lasting finish.

When we resurface a stone floor in this way, a fresh layer of stone will be revealed. This means that not only will you have a clean floor, but the stone will have a look a lot closer to when it was first laid. Resurfacing in this way will remove surface scratches, dulling and etch marks on the surface of the stone. It will regain the colours and properties of that initial stone. This means that once sealed, it will retain its finish for a lot longer than a floor that has been simply cleaned.

The marble polishing or resurfacing process begins with removing any stains, scratches and worn areas of the stone by gently removing the top layer of the stone surface using resin bonded diamonds. These are attached to a rotary machine with a weight of up to 160kg. The rotation and the pressure created will scratch the floor providing a light abrasion.

The polishing process is all about creating tighter and tighter scratch patterns that reduce the size of the pores and capillaries in the stone, creating a natural shine. Your marble floor can be resurfaced to a honed, mid or high shine depending on your preference.

Marble polishing or resurfacing is suitable for floors that are in need of renovating after years of wear and tear but is also applicable to correct damage at any point from installation.

For stone that is more deeply scratched, or shows uneven heights at the grout joint (lippage), we can offer deeper restoration services too and you can read more about this following the link below.

Maintenance

We follow up with all of our clients around 1 year to 18 months after our initial visit, based on our professional opinion of when further work is likely to be necessary. We can also provide a price for maintenance immediately on request. However, we would still recommend re-visiting before commencing work to re-familiarise ourselves with your stone

Keeping your natural stone looking stunning is something that we are passionate about. If you have had your stone treated or restored by the Athena Stonecare team then you will have been left with a guide explaining how to care for it. To purchase any of the products mentioned in the guide click here.

I wanted to leave a review for Danielle. She went above and beyond to help find alternative solutions so I could get my worktops/ tiles restored in the timeframe I need to, even following up afterwards to see how things panned out. Excellent communication!

Athena Stonecare is a great firm and I recommend it highly. Dave, Becca and the team could not have been more friendly and helpful, and they left our stone floor looking as good as new. I also thought their quote was very reasonable, given the amount of work involved.

So lovely to see the spring sunshine this morning, it really makes such a difference. Athena Stonecare have made this view much better this week, our marble had been heavily stained from cleaning products. It’s great to see it back to its former glory

Athena Stonecare did an excellent job on both my front steps and entrance hall floor, so much so that my neighbours asked for their details. I would be delighted to use them again and would unhesitatingly recommend them.

On behalf of the Abbey I would like to thank you both for your team’s work with our precious flooring. We all appreciate the miraculous improvement you achieved, and also the consideration and generosity of time, thought and advice given during the main working weeks and also helpful advice on aftercare.
