What is marble?
Marble is a metamorphic rock. It is formed when limestone is subjected to a large amount of heat and pressure. If you have limestone in your home and would like it cleaned or sealed, please see our page on limestone cleaning and sealing. Marble is not a very hard rock, it only scores between 1 and 4 on the Mohs Hardness Scale, meaning that it can be easily scratched with a fingernail or a nail. For reference, a diamond has a rating of 10 and a fingernail has a rating of 2.5. This means that on some occasions, marble is softer than your nail!
Marble can be polished and this leaves the surface very smooth and with a great shine. Here at Tile Solution Australia, we offer tile grinding and polishing for marble. One of the great features of marble is its transparency. This allows light to be seen through the surface of the stone and creates a very beautiful effect. When marble is polished, its natural colours are enhanced. These colours can include classic white, yellow, orange, pink, blue, green, and even black!
As marble is a natural stone, it requires special care and attention. Here at Tile Solution Australia, we offer marble tile cleaning and restoration. Marble is a very porous stone, meaning that it can easily absorb liquids, causing stains. We recommend immediately cleaning your marble tiles if something is spilt on them, as the longer you wait, the harder it can be to clean by hand. Our marble cleaning and marble resurfacing service will easily remove any stains from your marble tile, even if it’s been there for years! Contact us today for a free quote.
Our Marble tile cleaning and restoration services
Marble cleaning: To deep clean your marble tiles, we use a high pressure extraction and scrubbing machine with hot water and environmentally-friendly degreasers. Read more about our marble cleaning and marble resurfacing process here.
Marble grinding and marble polishing: When grinding and polishing your marble tiles, we always begin with grinding. In this step, we remove any damaged surface material from the marble, whilst making sure that we limit the amount of additional surface deformation. We then move on to marble polishing to remove any excess material and produce the best possible planeness. Read more about our grinding and polishing and marble honing process here.
Re-grouting: Regrouting is the removal of old grout and the installation of new grouting, which we usually recommend when old grout begins to deteriorate and discolour. Read more about our re-grouting process here.
