Knowledge is key when restoring marble floors
Marble is a metamorphic rock that makes a beautiful covering material for floors, walls, worktops, vanity tops etc. However, insight and experience is extremely important when cleaning, polishing and restoring marble floors.

Cleaning Bros’ Marble Restoration Services
Our team will use a mono-rotary scrubbing machine to restore your marble floors thoroughly. This will be accompanied by a detergent that is specifically formulated to break down soils, grease and grime that becomes tough to remove. This allows the operator to rinse any dirt away, leaving a nice, clean surface.
Marble floor polishing, done right.
The polished finish is achieved using a specialist stone mono-rotary polishing machine, with resin-bond diamond blocks. We only use the finest diamond segments available on the UK market to ensure the highest quality of workmanship is manifested by producing a deep reflective shine that lasts.

Fully Comprehensive 12-Step Marble Restoration Process:
- Survey – we will conduct a survey where the stone is identified and a demonstration will be carried out to give you a fair expectations of the end results.
- Masking – on the day we start work by carefully masking up all surroundings to protect your walls and items of furniture from splashes.
- Vacuum cleaning – all loose dirt and particles are vacuumed away.
- Cleaning – cleaning solution of our choice is applied and worked into your stone floor to loosen the dirt.
- Extraction – slurry is recovered using commercial grade wet-vacuum machines.
- No 5 may be repeated if necessary.
- Grinding / Honing / Polishing – we start the restoration process at the level that reflects the current state of your marble floor and working our way up through diamond abrasives until we reach your desired level of shine.
- Rinse – once the desired level of shine is achieved, the stone is rinsed out once again and left to dry.
- Sealing – the marble floor is sealed 1-2 days later with high quality impregnating (penetrating sealant). Please note that we wouldn’t undertake the work if we won’t be sealing it as our work ethic simply doesn’t allow us to leave a stone floor un-sealed.
- Floor finish – we can apply a stone wax of your choice (mat, satin or high gloss) to add mechanical protection to your marble floor.
- Clearing – All masking materials are removed and floor is given a final vacuum.
- Walk through.
Done with specialist grinding machines with planetary action Grinding is the process of levelling the surface of the stone removing “lips” and other unevenness. Grinding is mainly required when your marble floors haven’t been ground flat at the installation stage and “lippage” (difference in level between adjacent tiles) is present.
If the lippage isn’t removed then at the polishing stage there will be the so called “picture frame” effect where the polishing segments are skipping over the raised points of the tile leaving the adjacent low points un-touched.
Grinding is a slow process and it can be messy which is why we always take our time to protect walls, kitchen units and anything else that can potentially get spoiled by splashes.
Honing is the process of smoothing the stone with the use of less aggressive abrasives where the scratches left from grinding are removed and the stone is given a nice and smooth finish.
Honing is normally achieved with the use of diamond abrasives attached to the bottom of a mono rotary floor machine. Honing leaves the marble floor with matt finish or very little sheen with some stones.
Often the grout in marble floors can look, be partly damaged or fail completely due to subfloor movement. In those scenarios, we can re grout the entire floor as part of the marble restoration process which will provide more dimensional stability to the tiles and generally make the floor more sturdy. This will also breath a new lease of life onto your marble floors. It is at this point when we repair any loose / hollow tiles and fix what caused the grout to fail in the first place.
Sealing of marble walls and floors is art on its own. Marble floors can be effectively protected from staining through the use of various sealers, waxes, polishes and other protective coatings.
Understanding these coatings, what they are designed for and what stone types they are suitable for, plays an imperative role in the successful sealing of natural stone.
Another important aspect of stone floor sealing is the correct method of application to reach the maximum potential of the stone sealer. We do not recommend the use of topical sealers on marble floors as they form a layer on the stone surface not allowing it to “breath” which can lead to all sorts of problems.
At Cleaning Bros, we will only ever use impregnating (penetrating) sealers as our preferred choice which doesn’t change the natural look of your stone floors while allowing them to “breathe properly”.
Post sealer application, we can add a “Dressing” to manage the floor look or to simply add extra protection to the floor. With your marble floors being sealed and treated with a wax coating, daily maintenance becomes a breeze.
We do various marble repairs as stand alone services or as part of the restoration process. Those include chip repair, hole filling, grout repairs, fixing hollow tiles without the need of relaying them, relaying loose tiles, scratch removal and many more.
Maintenance is a key element of the proper care of marble floors. It is all so nice to have your marble restored to its original lustre, but it counts to nothing if it’s then left to deteriorate again. This is why at Cleaning Bros we offer Quarterly, 6-monthly and yearly maintenance visits to keep your marble in top notch condition all year round.
