Limerick Marble Floor Polishing Service
The truth is, like any organic substance, marble, limestone, terrazzo and travertine is susceptible to wear and tear, weather and the chemicals found in most common household cleaners, so it can lose its natural luster and strength. But, a properly maintained marble floor will actually appreciate in value-with a better-than-new appearance; increased safety; improved ease of maintenance and longer life for your marble floor, for as little as 10% of the cost of replacement.
At Showpiece we will take all the factors that will effect the strength and appearance of your marble floor into account- including the age, location and type of stone, installation current and past cleaning and maintenance practices and more. The restoration process involves a careful evaluation of your stone, followed by the stripping away of unsightly wax. The marble is then expertly resurfaced using diamond pads to remove blemishes and scratches, and then polished to a natural high-gloss finish, without using wax.
We clean, polish and seal natural stone floors or table tops such as marble, limestone and travertine. Travertine is a very porous tile and sometimes holes can appear. These holes will need to be filled before any polishing is done. Limestone can have a polished or very porous uneven finish. You must be careful which diamond polishing pads you use when polishing limestone as it could ruin the finish of your tile. Marble is our favourite to polish as most of the time it’s pretty straight forward if it has been installed correctly.

Etch mark removal from marble and stone floors
Etches are caused by the acid content in spills reacting with the calcium in stone. Acidic substances include wine, fruit juice, vinegar or harsh cleaning chemicals not intended for cleaning natural stone. This can show as roughness and remove the shine. Etches can only be removed by honing and polishing.
Sealing marble and stone floors
Stone is naturally porous; any liquid spilled on unsealed stone will seep into the stone and stain. By sealing the stone, you effectively seal the pores. This prevents the spill soaking into the stone, leaving it on the surface where it can be cleaned up. Spills should be cleaned up as soon as possible, as they can penetrate if left.
Polished natural stone reflects light and does not need a topical coating or wax to achieve a high gloss finish. We recommend sealing with a topical seal on heavily trafficked floors in commercial environments, or on travertine, quarry or terracotta tiles due to their highly porous nature.
Stone sealers break down in the presence of UV light, when cleaned with harsh cleaners or because of general wear. It is therefore recommended that you re-seal your stone every two to three years.
Most frequently questions and answers
Yes, of course. All of our technicians are fully insured to carry out any marble polishing or natural stone polishing work. If you need proof we can show you a document of our insurance when we arrive
When cleaning and polishing marble or any natural stone floor, the area will have to be fully cleared. This job is tough and can get messy, plus all areas need to be polished so all furniture will need to be removed from the areas.
Diamond pads are we use on our floor polishing machine. These pads come in all sorts of grits. Low grits like 80 grit are used to remove scratches and as you get higher in the grits the floor gets shinier and shinier. At first, your floor will get dull but then it comes to a shine as we progress with the pads.
No. We use a powder to seal your floor and it does take time to set. I don’t recommend walking on your floor for at least a few hours.
The honest answer is yes. Polishing marble is a tough and messy job and if it’s not done right then it’s easy to cause damage. We also have to purchase diamond pads to carry out the work which are expensive.
