Marble Restoration Services for Toorak Homes
RESTORE THE MARBLE IN YOUR TOORAK HOME INSTEAD OF REPLACING
Marble is the stone of choice for most of Toorak homes. Known for its beauty, elegance and style, it provides a high-end, luxurious option for interiors including for floors as well as bathroom and kitchen benchtops. In addition, marble has a timeless appearance that is elegant but durable. This is why it becomes popular in the Melbourne suburb of Toorak.
Marble is a statement piece for hallways, kitchens and bathrooms. Just like all stone tiles, they also require maintenance. Marble is a porous material. This means it can stain, scratch and wear easily. This is particularly so if it is exposed to household acids like vinegar, mustard, citrus and other food-related products. Acidic substances can cause deep stains, etching in the tile and can remove the marble’s natural, stunning shine.
Like all natural types of stones, marble needs to be sealed regularly. And because cleaning products for deep stains on marble is limited, it’s worth the time and effort to hire a restoration professional for your Toorak home. Polishing marble is best left to the experts. This is because we have the specialised machinery with diamond infused polishing pads, that restores the natural lustre of your marble tiles.,
TYPES OF MARBLE
There’s a great deal of variety available when it comes to marble for your Toorak home. This includes:
- Veining: Small lines of color what gives this natural stone its unique look. In fact this veining affect is often referred to as “marbleized” when describing other items.
- Gloss: A highly polished version of the stone that makes it reflective and shiny.
- Tumbled: A process that distresses and ages the stone so it appears dulled. This soft look creates a milky, creamy color, making it seem buffed rather than glossy.
- Honed: A no-gloss variety that has a flat, matte, or satin finish. It creates an earthy affect that’s become popular due to its less formal appeal. Plus, it reduces risk of etching.
- Etching: With everyday foot traffic, the surface may slightly wear by slowly removing its initial polish.
