Stone flooring, such as marble and granite, is a popular flooring choice for both residential and commercial buildings. Though there is also an expensive option like the hardwood floor, they have high strength and more impact resistance.
They are one of the best options for flooring the offices, where there is a chance of impact from a heavy object. When professionally maintained, stone flooring provides a hard-wearing surface that’s easy to care for and extremely fire resistant.
Fire resistance is also one of the three added benefits over the traditional wooden floors.
Like all flooring types, though, stone floors will eventually need some maintenance. Stone floors can lose their shine as the finish wears off and high traffic areas experience years of use.
They can also be a victim of accidental drops, leaving dents and damage on the surface. Moreover, they often develop scratches due to the furniture being slide over their surface.
They are also chemical sensitive and the use of different floor cleaning chemicals can destroy their shine.
Grinding these flooring can restore their appearance. Following are the few applications of the grinding machine concerning marble/stone floors.
- Leveling the surface of the floor
- Preparing it for treatment
- Polishing the stone to a high gloss
This is beneficial for both newly laid stone floors as well as those that have been down a long time and need refreshing.
It is also much cheaper to refinish the surface of the stone with a floor grinding machine than replacing it with new stone flooring, too, meaning an investment in a floor grinder could end up paying for itself.
