It is often said that a house is the most expensive purchase anyone can do in their lifetime. Though this statistic may be true, there are some people that like to invest in other properties. Yachts, for example, are appealing and a great investment for those that like the ocean and live in an area that they’ll be able to enjoy them. Now, there are different styles and ways to decorate these luxurious properties. Most of the time they require more maintenance than a house. Unless you find the right materials and the right people that will help you with the upkeep. Marble floors and accents, for example, are a combination of durability and style. Marble is considered one of the hardest and most durable natural stones. This material is stain and scratch resistant, and it can handle more pressure and impact compared to other surfaces. Nevertheless, walking on it, tracking in salt water and deck grime, and exposing it to UV rays will affect the marble. Without the proper care, the marble will start to look cloudy and loose it’s luxurious appeal. Since yachts are exposed to different elements, giving it the proper maintenance will strengthen the marble, avoiding the possibilities of future stains and cracks. Marble polishing boosts the shine of the stone and protects it from everyday foot traffic and spills. Marble polishing isn’t just available for floors. It is also recommended for countertops and showers. When looking for the best team to polish your marble floors, countertops, and showers be sure to ask about the products they use. The professionals at Mint Marble & Stone use the Everlast Floor System for all their jobs. The unique qualities of this system are [...]
If you want to create an atmosphere of opulence and class in Fort Lauderdale, marble flooring is a step above most other flooring options. Its unparalleled elegance can be seen at the Taj Mahal and in Michelangelo’s David, so why not your hotel or restaurant? Perhaps one of the reasons polished marble flooring in a restaurant or hotel encourages a feeling refinement is because it is reminiscent of those classic works of art or maybe because marble polishing gets it to a brilliant shine. However, there are more reasons to consider marble or other fine stones for your flooring than just aesthetics. Marble is a durable material, taken from mountains in large slabs, smoothed and polished. The patterns and colors occur naturally which means no two floors are alike. Marble is stain and scratch resistant and its hardness allows it to have a very high polish. Even compared to other stones, it can be polished to a smoothness you can’t get with other stone. For commercial businesses like hotels and restaurants, ambiance is an important part of what makes your guests feel comfortable. The right atmosphere can shape a dining or hospitality experience. Marble flooring, in top condition, can turn a bar and grill into a “dining experience.” How Hard is Marble? However, marble is a softer stone. In geology, the Mohs hardness scale measures scratch resistance. When you hear that diamonds are the hardest substance, it refers to this scale. Diamond is at a 10 while marble is between 3 and 4. That means it’s harder than things like copper, gold, aluminum, and most limestone. However, it’s still fairly low on the scale. If glass, iron, steel, and many other materials drag across it, [...]
A popular survey indicated that dirty restaurant floors affect more than 68 percent of customers' perceptions of a restaurant’s establishment. These customers explain that they would never return to dine at the establishment again. A whopping 86 percent also agreed that they always compare the cleanliness of the restaurant floors to the condition of the kitchen and its floors. Dirty and unkempt floors can not only cost you customers but also directly affect your building maintenance costs. Dirty floors may also cause dangerous accidents that may cause slipping and falling. For hygiene and safety, one of the top concerns of running a successful restaurant business is the responsibility of restaurant floor polishing and maintenance. Maintaining the cleanliness for your brand value, customers, and also health departments who pop in for regular inspections is a must for every hospitality establishment. Apart from the creative aesthetics and design options, restaurant floors should be easy to maintain, remain odorless, and durable enough to hold up against high traffic for various periods of time throughout the day. For instance, flooring at the bar area needs to be specifically fluid resistant. Dining floors need to be resistant to acids from the dropped food, and so on. Therefore, the type of flooring you choose for your restaurant is a very important decision indeed. Recommended Flooring Options for Restaurants Please note that regardless of any type of flooring you choose to use for your restaurant, for better quality and durability you need to ensure that it is of commercial grade. Marble Tiles: Marble tiles are durable, aesthetically pleasing, and versatile, however, have a very high installation costs. Depending on the restaurant area, the total expenditure can run between $7,000 to $10,000. Carpets: Carpets are [...]

A lot of homes in Fort Lauderdale have natural marble but we are going to discuss both cultured and natural Marble Polishing in Fort Lauderdale. Using the wrong type of polish and polishing technique can turn a simple polishing job into a complex refinishing job. One of the biggest causes of a Marble Polishing Fort Lauderdale job gone wrong is not knowing what type of tile we are working with. How do I know what type of marble I have before marble polishing? The first thing you need to do before you proceed with Marble Polishing Fort Lauderdale is to determine what type of marble you have. One of the quick and easy ways to determine what type of marble you have is by checking the temperature. If the floor temperature is cooler than the temperature of the surrounding air then it is probably natural marble. On the contrary cultured marble will be the same temperature of the surrounding air. There are two other ways to check your marble, an acid test or the scratch method. Both of these marble tests could put your marble at risk for damage. Vinegar will create bubbles in natural marble and a nail will make scratches in natural marble. Make sure to test your marble before you polish your marble floors. Do I need to remove stains before polishing marble? Marble stains are caused when substances are trapped in the stone. If you use Marble Polishing Fort Lauderdale to polish over the stains it will further seal them in causing you to put more money into your marble floors to restore them than is necessary. A lot of dirt and stains can accumulate during your Ft Lauderdale parties. Use soap [...]
