Having marble in your home can be a great way to couple elegance and durability. You can get it in a number of colors, and it’s a surface that will hold up well to most things. Despite that, though, it’s important that you care for your marble correctly so it doesn’t become damaged beyond repair. Polishing and honing can help keep marble looking great, and take care of problems before they get too bad to correct.
What is Marble Polishing and Honing?
Marble shines when it’s very smooth, and can look dull when that smoothness goes away. Through the process of polishing and honing, marble is smoothed and imperfections are corrected, making it shiny, healthy, and lovely to look at. When light strikes marble that’s smooth, the reflected light creates a beautiful shine and an expensive look that is hard to replicate with lower quality finishes. Light doesn’t reflect as well from marble with cracks or scratches, but polishing and honing marble removes those problem areas to restore the shine again.
Does Your Marble Need Some Help
There are many ways to tell if your marble could use some help. These can include:
- Dullness or a dingy look that doesn’t go away with cleaning
- Chips, cracks, or scratches
- Whirls or swirls that aren’t part of the original pattern
- Erosion or color changes
