What’s Involved in Marble Repair
Marble rehabilitation is the revival of a marble floor whose condition has degenerated to acquire its initial state of good appearance. Marble is commonly used on floors because it has a unique shiny surface with a natural appearance that is attractive to the eye and therefore it is important that whenever it is damaged, the necessary steps for restoring its initial beauty are taken as quickly as possible before permanent damage has happened to it. 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. In the case where a marble floor has over time become rough and non uniform, grinding can be used in making sure that the floor is restored to a more uniform layout. Marble floors will get scratched often and therefore when repairing the floor; the scratch marks can be removed by polishing the floor using diamond, which is the most commonly used material because it is hard and will leave the marble looking shinny. 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. Small pits are commonly caused by small falling objects and can be repaired by the use of an epoxy which must be of the same colour as that of the marble floor, so as to hold the chipped out piece in the pit that has been left on the floor.
An object that is not sharp enough to cut into the marble tile but heavier will result in a crack on the surface of the tile, and the crack can be filled up using concrete epoxy or a vinyl compound to fill in and make look normal. Marble floors are also susceptible to scuff marks which are black streaks that are left on the floor by some items in the house like furniture, ladders and hard soled shoes. 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.
