Badly Etched Marble Shower
Homeowners in Alpine, California contacted us because their black marble shower had been damaged by a cleaner that was not safe for natural stone. The homeowners were not aware that marble, a calcium-based stone, was sensitive to acidic substances.
Marble Etch Damage Removal
First, we masked and protected the walls and other surfaces surrounding the stone. Then we honed the marble to remove a very thin layer of stone, which virtually erased the surface damage. To restore the high-gloss factory finish, we used progressively finer grit diamond pads to polish the stone. We pride ourselves on attention to detail, so while we were there, we replaced the caulk. We finished up with an application of a high-quality impregnating sealer.
The homeowners were relieved to see no evidence of damage and amazed at how new and stunningly beautiful the marble shower was after our restoration services. We recommended a stone-safe, pH-neutral cleaner for them to use on their shower in the future and provided them with a link to our free, downloadable Stone and Tile Care Guide.
