If you are in TRNC now call Jeff on 0533 862 1603.

He does floors and security alarms.

After Sydney Construction finished our house Jeff cleaned and professionally sealed our marble and travertine floors - then polished them.

Next polishing is in about 4 years time. Until then just wash/mop with plain cold water.

Excellent investment if you do it straight away.

Hope this helps.

Mention my name, Paul Sinclair

We have a new 3 bedroom house, lounge, dining room, kitchen, utility and a lot of hall and landing.

About 160sqm of marble and 40sqm of travertine.

Took them almost two days. They use a special machine with wire brushes to burn the polish into the marble.

Cost 400 in total.

This may be a little high but the transformation was very impressive.

Hope this helps.

hi. during the build process of a property the floors are scratched and marked either by materials or people traffic, to remove these scratches you have to grind down and polish back the surfaces. this process can be lengthy depending on the size of the property area,i do a grinding and polishing service for stone floors in and around the esentepe area, if you want me to i am quit willing to come along and give you an estimate for your floors.

You can contact me on 05338744953 and my name is wayne.

Hope this helps.

all the best.

A cheap DIY solution is to use a wet & dry foam block, with some soapy water.



Polish in a moving circular motion, so you don't dig grooves, and always keep the floor & block wet.
