The first thing that needs to be checked before beginning a process to remove a stain is its chemical composition. Practically, there is no solution available that completely washes out stains from marble or any other type of stone flooring. However, you can find a number of products in the market that purport to treat stains to minimize their effect. These could involve cleaning chemicals, bleaching agents, solvents, strong chemical treatments and poultices. When you use them, they can actually end up permanently damaging the stone. Hence, to avoid compounding your floor-related issues, it is best if you call a skilled professional team, something that Marble Pro’s Polishing & Restoration can offer you. We can take care of your stain removal work and make your flooring look flawless again.
Some of the marks that can appear on your floor are oil stains, metal stains, organic stains, water spots, ink stains, etch marks, smoke stains and efflorescence. Common reasons for staining in your home include spilling of wine, food products being dropped on the floor, scraping of legs of wooden or metallic furniture, rusted nails, and soap and other cosmetic chemicals leaking onto the floor. Most of these stains leave an etch mark on the stone. They soak into the pores, leaving a dark patch, which is hard to remove for most people. Our expert team at Marble Pro’s Polishing & Restoration uses special polishing powders and honing pads to buff away these etches and helps regain the original shine of the floor.
There is a wear layer that coats the stain always, which cannot be treated in a day. It takes a minimum of 3 to 4 days’ effort for the floor to be clear of all marks. Very often, after the stain removal process, the stained section of the floor gets cleaned and begins to look better than the rest of the floor. The entire floor, thus, needs to be cleaned properly, so that such unmatched effect is avoided.
When you get us over, to clean your floor, our first step is to understand the nature of the stain, its intensity and the type of floor itself. For instance, if you have terrazzo flooring, we use hydrogen peroxide, as it is an industrial strength product that can do wonders to this type of floor. We lighten the stain by spreading the product overnight and all day long. The floor is treated every day until the stain disappears completely. Once the floor is clean, we give it a once over with grits, which restores its shining quality to the way it was when first installed. We even help you with post-treatment maintenance tips.
