Marble can be polished 3 different ways.
Marble crystallizing: This is considered a maintenance polish to marble (Las Vegas casinos use this process weekly to maintain a glass like appearance to their marbled casino floors.) The process is performed with a low speed floor buffer equipped with a steel wool pad. A crystallizing fluid is sprayed down on the floor and through a thermal chemical reaction with the marble a gloss is achieved. This method will not remove imbedded dirt or scratches. It is intended to maintain the gloss of the marble.
Marble paste polishing: This is considered the most common and cost effective way to restore the luster and clean marble. This process incorporates using a low speed buffer with a marble paste being buffed into the marble. Clean and capture tools are also utilized to steam clean the marble to remove ground in dirt and debris. The marble is then sealed with a solvent based sealer. (This process will not remove deep scratches in the marble.)
Marble diamond resurfacing: This process is utilized on extremely worn or scratched marble. This can be applied to both floors or counter tops. Multiple passes with a buffer using varying diamond grit cutters remove a layer of the marble. The final step is to paste polish and then seal the marble.
(Lippage removal can be added if the floor is not level)
(Lippage: tiles that are not laid completely level)
