Hi Terry

I used to use K1, K2 and K3 a lot but change over to Stone Glo with a natural fibre pad for maintenance, no need for wire wool pads still get good results. I must say that the marble needs to be crystallised first time.

Hi Terry,

The system I use,

1 Re- Surface using Pacer diamonds.

2 Seal, protect and clean. Stone Soap.

3 Final polish and harden stone. Hulk powder.

4 Polish and maintain shine. Stone Glo.

I get these products from,

B I Crawshaw & Co
3 Silverwing Industrial Park
Horatius Way,

TEL 020 8686 7997

There maybe other suppliers more local to you. With Stone Glo you do not need a Kleever machine or wire wool pads.  

Hope this helps

Depends what you mean by 'clean'? Marble is polished by abrasion - and this is achieved with resin bonded diamonds and polishing powders. Some co's like to use vitrification  Angry- I do not! - and actually this process does more harm than good in the long term.
Anyway if you want your client to have the best possible results on the marble floor, get it done by someone who has experience of doing this kind of work - a marble floor can be ruined if put in the wrong hands.
By all means contact me via this board if you need further assistance - or visit my web-site , for further info. and some pictures of floors professionally refinished and polished.
