Make your interior distinct
The professional countertop and floor polishing services of Canvastone can bring the sparkle back to the appearance of the granite, marble, travertine, and other stones in your home or business premises.
Granite and marble are premium materials renowned for their long-lasting beauty. Nevertheless, over time, they’ll begin to lose their lustre as the surface becomes worn, dulled, and scratched, despite regular cleaning and basic maintenance.
Professional services rendered by Canvastone will restore your countertops and floors to their former glory by using specialised polishing techniques and products that will make your stone surfaces look as good as new.
However, when it comes to polishing granite and marble floors, you can have too much of a good thing. An experienced marble and granite floor polishing company will never make your surface so shiny that it poses a safety risk by being too slippery.

The granite and marble countertop and floor polishing services of Canvastone
1. Cleaning the surface
Granite and marble polishing begins with a thorough cleaning of the surface to ensure it’s free from any debris or dirt.
2a. Polishing marble and granite countertops
Granite and marble countertop polish typically comes in the form of a cream containing light abrasives to avoid the risk of scratching the surface.
Special stone polishing powder can be used wet or dry to restore the gleam to your marble or granite while removing minor stains and scratches.
We’ll use different types of compound depending on whether the primary colour of the stone is light or dark.
We’ll also take care not to exert too much pressure, which can damage the stone.
2b. Polishing granite and marble floors
Floors have a far greater surface area than countertops, and the method and polishing equipment deployed differ.
Professionals may go through 4 steps in polishing stone flooring:
- Grinding. This process involves the use of an industrial diamond polishing pad fitted to the drive plate of a floor-buffing machine. It levels uneven flooring, brought about by poor installation or settling of the subfloor, thereby removing protruding tile edges. It can also get rid of deep scratches and stains.
- Honing. Diamond floor polishing pads of finer grit would then be utilised to enhance the smoothness of the flooring.
- Polishing. If the flooring is in good condition, this step would suffice in bringing back the shine of the stone floor. Diamond polishing pads of even finer grit are applied here.
- Buffing or crystallisation. A chemical is sprayed onto the stone and worked in with steel wool pads, creating glass-like crystals on the surface. Heat and friction are then applied to these crystals with a floor-buffing machine to create the mirror-like shine.
Granite and marble polishing prices
The cost of polishing stone countertops and floors depends largely on the area and condition of your surface. If your surface has gone for many years with little care and attention, the number of steps required to bring it to shine would be higher, so the job would take a longer time to complete.
