How do I make my marble floor shine again?

Do you have a lovely marble floor, but it's lost its shine? Do you lead a busy life and want to learn how to make your marble floor shine again? These are all problems we see and hear about regarding marble floors.

From the mouth of a professional, making a marble floor shiny is the most challenging and worst job to do. You need all the right equipment and knowledge before you start. It's a very time-consuming task that even professionals don't like to do.

I wish I could say this is how you do it, but I don't want to waste your time, as I'm sure it's very precious to you.

Instead, I have:

Now there isn’t protection against etching on your marble floor. Etching is – Damage to the tile from acidic substances and harsh cleaners; this is very common damage. But you can apply a marble floor sealant to help protect the floor from absorbing spillages. Try to mop up spillages as soon as you see them will also help.

Regular sweeping and getting dirt removed as soon as possible. I’m sure most of us do this now anyway, but wearing indoor-only shoes on the marble floor will reduce the grit and soil that can damage the floor and dull it. Make sure you have mats at the doorways to wipe shoes and reduce soil and grit.

If you haven’t had the floor laid, we recommend you don’t have a gloss finish as this is the hardest to maintain.

As much as we love our pets, their paws carry a lot of dirt and soil, and their nails can etch the marble, so avoiding them using this floor would be good.
