Getting Down To Basics with Marble

Marble Rehabilitation

Marble rehabilitation is the revival of a marble floor whose condition has degenerated to acquire its initial state of good appearance. Different marble stones have different patterns and color shades and therefore many people use them for purposes of flooring and sometimes bathroom walls, which makes it necessary that whenever any damage occurs to it, steps of making sure it is returned to its initial form are taken so that it does not undergo permanent damage. Many people prefer marble to other flooring materials just because of its ease to polish and therefore making it all beautiful and getting its glamour back again and therefore it is good to make sure that its maintenance is given priority.

Despite their high resistance to damage, the marble floor can occasionally get damaged and therefore will require being repaired as per the extent of damage that has happened to it. Grinding is a process that can be used to remove roughness that may have come by with time and make the floor flat in cases where the floor loses its uniformity. When a marble floor gets scratched, it will lose its beauty and glamour and to make it look beautiful again, polishing using a very hard material such as diamond will ensure that the scratches are scrapped off making the surface as shinny as it was before damage. On some rare but possible occasions, the marble tiles might be broken due to a result of being hit by falling heavy items and this calls for rush action to repair it which can be done by gluing the broken pieces back together using a suitable adhesive, and this is only possible if the pieces are big enough. It is also common place to find small holes on the surface of the marble tile and in the event of a renovation process, the holes can be refilled by putting in an epoxy material that is a similar color to that of the tile and then the chips that got out be placed back in to fill the holes.

A crack can also occur on a marble floor thus requiring repairing which will be accomplished by filling it using a vinyl patching compound that will fill up the crack and cover up evidence of its occurrence. Scuff marks are removed from the marble floor by several methods, for example, larger scuff marks are removed by using tennis shoe and rub the spot firmly with heel. Crystallization creates a film on the surface of marble which is durable and helps preserve the brightness of the marble during the final process o marble repair.
