Marble is available in a variety of colors. The color of the
marble determined by its mineral composition when it is
formed. This in turn is determined by what the pollution
is in the limestone.
The colors range from the well-known pure white calcite
variety of lesser-known varieties containing hematite is
reddish. Marble has a hardness rating of 2.5 – 5.
A polished marble floors scratch very easily compared with a harder stone like granite . Sand that has a hardness
rating of about 7 , repaired marble if it is on the marble floor where there is a lot of foot traffic , since most marble
flooring has a hardness rating of about 3. This means that the crystals are damaged and the surface has lost its
reflectivity and shine.
So it’s good to have entrance mats as a preventive measure to stop the gravel and sand already at the door
Each stone requires a good maintenance schedule in order to preserve it and to delay restoration as long as
Daily maintenance will consist of dry and damp mopping, this should be done with a good stone soap and
sometimes with just water. It is important that soap rests do not build up on the surface of the stone.
Acid -based chemicals used for domestic purposes can damage the surface of marble and other calcite
stones on contact. Similar damage may occur from acidic foods and drinks.
Professional regular maintenance will be required to maintain a good luster of the stone. This will mean that
the marble floor has crystallized.
At some point require the marble floor restoration . This is because large amounts of scratches, traffic wear,
problems with discoloration or other defects that can not be remedied with crystallization / polishing.
Restoration of marble floor will require a diamond cutting and then a crystallization / polishing.
