There are many different colours and grades of marble flooring.
If they are not cared for properly, they can, over time become worn and damaged.
Staining and pitting can make a once beautiful marble or granite floor look shabby and tired.
This gives a poor first impression when new prospective clients or employees visit your offices.
Hiring a specialist marble or granite floor restoration operative can help to bring these surfaces back to life. They will be able to offer a range of solutions to revive the flooring to its original splendour.
When choosing a marble or granite floor, it’s better to think about the current decor and the shades that will complement such an environment.
It is also important to consider the footfall on the floor and where it is located.
Maintenance should play a part in your choice.
Different marbles have different degrees of hardness so some will be more hard-wearing than others. They may be a better option for areas that regularly see people coming and going.
