The treated floor, before the restoration works, was very dark.
In fact, due to the trampling of the shoes on the slabs, black spots appeared.
But let’s go ahead and find out the whole intervention.

How to polish ruined marble

After carrying out the inspection and thoroughly studying the floor conditions,
the good skilled craftsmen of the R.G.M company decided to act by carrying out a deep cleaning of the blackened marble.
As a first step, to remove the deep dirt caused by the trampling, the entire floor was washed with MICRONET,
a detergent for cleaning blackened marble.

Intensive detergent for microporous stone materials.

The specialists, with the help of a single brush and RED DISC, applied this excellent product which quickly and deeply eliminates all the most stubborn dirt from low absorption materials, on the entire surface.
Once the dirt was completely removed, the floor was rinsed with water.

As a second step, once dry, the marble was sanded with a RED DISC
and polished with KW-STAR powder.

The RED DISC, ideal product for cleaning blackened marble, removes the black surface traces without affecting the protective layers of the surfaces.
