Question

What are the best products out there to shine marble floors that have no shine? How do you bring back the shine on this marble floor?


Answer

Marble is a natural stone that is mechanically finished to produce a reflective surface. When it dulls, likely it will have to be resurfaced to restore a gloss. Normally, applied finishes are not recommended for marble, so refinishing (polishing) becomes a more complicated operation than just mopping on a product.
Consult www.marble-institute.com/ for more detail, and realize that this resurfacing will require investment in special equipment and supplies and an education in the correct usage of these.
