Marble floor polishing is best to be done in order to keep your floors always shining and dirt-free. This polishing can help to remove strains and dents on floor surface from old use of the floor. It not only removes the dents also, but it makes the floor to appear smoother and completely restores its former shine.
How Polishing Helps the Shines
A shiny stone surface indicates that the surface is extremely smooth. The smoothness makes it very easy for light to reflect from it. The smoother the stone, the more reflective it becomes. This happens because light stays together when it reflects from the stone, so much so that each ray bounces from the surface exactly in the same direction. Of course, when a marble surface becomes rough and scratched up, the light bounces in all different directions. This uneven surface however causes the light to refract, and our eye perceives a dull slab of marble.
