Marble and Natural stone floors that have high-traffic areas can become dull and lose their brilliance when dirt and other sediments (even sand from the bottom of your shoes) can start eroding the stone's natural crystals. All that weight from the foot forces the dirt lying on the surface into the marble, this can cause an abrasion or fracturing of the delicate crystals in natural stone. The best and most proper way to bring back the crystals ability to reflect light, is to re-hone the floor.
If your marble surface has scratches, stains, watermarks, or signs of ware, you would need honing service; if it's bad, you need a professional to do it. Honing a marble finish is in the category polishing. However, honing is a final finishing operation conducted to a surface finish using abrasive stones or pads to remove minute amounts of material to sharpen or smooth with a whetstone. This process differs from polishing, in that it does not leave a high shine, rather a honed marble leaves your marble smooth with a matt/hone finish.
Why is it important to hone a natural stone floor like Marble? A honed finish helps your stone floors to be less prone to scratches and foot traffic, and also shows less grime than a polished floor, and that means a lot less cleaning. The greater the shine desired, the greater the resources required to keep it that way. Honing your marble floor surfaces is a great way to virtually eliminate the taxing maintenance requirements while still having the wonderful characteristics of a beautiful marble surface in the home.
