Polishing The Marble Back To Its Original Sheen
Homeowners who move into a home that already has a marble kitchen counter may find to their disappointment that the previous owners did not really take good care of the kitchen countertop and that the marble has lost a lot of its sparkle.
Well, homeowners do not really have to worry about this. Marble polishing can bring the shine back on the counter. Earlier, marble polishing was done by hand. It used to take several craftsmen more than a week to polish the marble countertop. The craftsmen had to use three different types of grits to scrub the marble surface. On an average it used to take more than 80 hours to get one surface polished.
But these days' things have gotten a lot easier. Homeowners can polish the marble using mechanical polishers. Mechanical polishers are fitted with diamonds that help polish the scruff off the surface of the marble countertop,
The process of countertop polishing begins with the edges and moves onto the main surface of the marble slab. These days' it takes marble polishers only a day to polish the marble countertop.
