Recently we got a request to polish a brown marble vanity top for a homeowner in Cambridge. The stone was a variety of Emperador, which can be fussy to polish. Photos are above – you can get a better resolution photo by clicking on each image one at a time to see detail.
The process was a one day event – the homeowner removed the faucet spigot and handles herself to allow us to do a better job. We recommend this, but it’s not always critical, depending on where the gloss needs to be restored.
First we use diamond abrasive disks to remove etching, so called ‘water spots’, and then smooth out the stone, eliminating scratches and allowing light to reflect better. Then we use a polishing powder made for marble countertops, buffing it to a shine.
The final step is a clear penetrating sealer to protect the marble, and then it’s ready to enjoy and use again!
