Just look at the damage this product caused to what should be a beautiful stone. The homeowner in pittsburgh could not afford to fix the damage, and will have to live with a marble floor that looks like vinyl. There is no such thing as a stone polish in a bottle. Of course the coating can be removed from the stone but the grout is ruined with it a full restoration.
Tip of the Day
The Product bellow is another fine example of a wax, that is sold in hardware stores in Pittsburgh “as safe for Marble”. Please, for your sake, never apply this product, to the marble in your home. I know, its another product that from the description on their web site to the wording on the bottle, you would never know, that if you apply this product, it could cost you thousands.
“MARBLE RESTORE is an excellent product for protecting, sealing, and restoring hard surface floors. It penetrates the pores of the floor sealing them from within. “ This is true that it will protect the stone, but that it penetrates the pores is making it sound like a impregnating sealer, and not a topical coating. The results of using this product is just bad.
First of all your marble floor will look ugly and fake. It will look like it has plastic over the stone.
This is a very old marble floor in South Hills that is covered with the Marble Restore wax product. So whats the problem. The wax is now scratched and is very yellowed and dirty. The wax now needs to be chemically stripped off. But this would put nasty fumes in the house. Also not only would the wax on the floor come off but the paint on the baseboard will strip off as well. Not fun. In fact we declined to do this job because of the wax. In the end never put wax or any product that has the words POLISH on your stone floor.
