Marble is generally a softer stone, though some marbles are harder than others. Therefore, marble will scratch, etch, and lose its shine and luster in the high traffic areas of your home, such as your bathroom or kitchen, when subjected to acidic spills and if not maintained with the proper cleaning products and methods.
Marble is frequently used in offices, but due to high traffic, it can become dull and damaged through daily wear and tear, improper maintenance, scratches, staining, etching or the use of harmful chemicals.

Marble can scratch, etch, stain and lose its luster over time. Our team is able to evaluate your stone needs, propose a plan to service your stone and give you the best possible results!
Polished marble has a reflective or shiny finish due to polishing with very fine abrasives that remove all flaws that slow the return of light bouncing off the surface. It is often slightly darker in color than honed marble of the same type.
All polished marble is honed first. After being honed, polished marble is sanded with finer metal diamonds until the surface flaws have been removed and the marble is a smooth as possible.
"Honed" is the term used for stone that has been processed to a matte or satin finish. When you refine the surface beyond a honed finish you achieve a shiny high-gloss finish, which is referred to a polished finish. The stone restoration process involves preparing and cleaning the stone, then applying sequential grits of diamond abrasive pads and abrasive powders to achieve the finish you would like followed by a proper sealer, typically a silicone impregnator.
