Polishing polished marble floors

Posted by sugar_maple_30 (My Page) on

My recently installed polished Crema Marfil foyer tiles (I know, I know - dumb move!) already have a couple of etch marks. Also I stupidly used the vacuum (wince) and it left a couple of scratches. (It also left marks on hardwood - who knew?)

My question is I'm thinking of having it professionally polished after the winter - will that take the etches and scratches out or make them less noticeable, or am I wasting my money?

Also, it was suggested to me that I have them honed. Good or bad idea? I don't want to ruin them.

They're a worry, but, man, are they pretty!

Thanks for any advice.

Yes, it'll take care of the scratches and etching. As for honing, it'll help keep things like that from being as noticeable, but it won't stop them from happening.
