Polishing a stone floor can help to remove accumulated dirt and revive the appearance of your flooring. This is especially true of any floor that has high traffic either in the home or in commercial premises. Maintaining your stone flooring is essential to ensure the longevity of your granite, marble or other natural stone floor. This is especially important if you are considering selling your property. The frequency of polishing is largely determined by the type and colour of the stone together with the amount of traffic the floor experiences.
Stone polishing is typically done with a mechanized rotary device that utilises diamond or powder abrasives. This can remove any old surfacing or sealant, as well as accumulated dirt. Once the stone surface has been polished it can then be re-sealed and buffed to perfection. Identifying what type of stone floor you have is imperative as this will determine the appropriate polishing technique. Hard natural stone such as granite requires less polishing than softer stones such as marble, and dark stone shows more wear than lighter coloured stone, and will therefore need to be polished more frequently.
Ensure you wear the appropriate safety equipment when sanding or polishing your stone floor. This includes gloves, eye protection and a face mask.
