Understand that most of the houses in usj are marble floors.
Any suggestion how to get the floor shine back or remove the subbirm stain?

Professional grinding is needed. They are with proper equipment for the job. Just ensure you have proper tap water supply.

..why never call those from mail drop.?
So many times we hear of people calling these call-card contacts... they come to your house, give a high estimate quotation for the repairs and if house owner say "thank you, I will think about it first" then the guy will then produce a bill for the "house-call" which is equally exhorbitant (and nothing was done yet, just to give you an estimate cost)... and other horror stories from those that had the job done .
I will not elaborate as I NEVER called any of them, only hear say from others. If anyone of you have an experience, tell us (but leave out the names or phone numbers)

Polish isn't the word used for parquet floor reconditioning which involve sanding off the top layer of old varnish, which obviously produce dust. Marble grinding or polishing is a wet grinding process, but may incur ONE FULL DAY of constant running water for the job, the water bill is YOURS to incur! Yup!..some say water is still cheap!
I've no experience in contacting any of those cards in postbox. I guess Chang know better and will heed his advice, better never than kena kaw kaw! This is Malaysia!...no law one!..when it comes to this!

i was at 1time before ice age, guilty of CONvincing millions to buy the liquid floor shine. Just pour a couple of capful into a pail of watre, mop here mop then and Viola! :D ..I mean who wont believe the message when they see the floor cleaner than clean, shinier than shine in their colour Tv and then now plasma & LED 50inch??:p

Actually the wax ingredient in the floor polish/cleaner is the main culprit. They add a layer onto your precious marble and this layer attracts & retains those slimy, sticky gung...AHHAHAAHHA!

the way to get back the old shine is no choice but to engage a pro to water polish up the whole floor and then stay away from those stuff...

Use capful sodium hypochlorite for the cleanse, odourise, kill germ effect on ye precious marble floor. Serious:heheheh:

My eXperience - free Quotes from Con tractors in flooring, renovation, and furnishing of cabinets to wardrobes. All FOC with drawings, estimates and quotes. Yes, it was from a pool of calling cards and printed medias stuffed into the letterbox. Some even outdo my personal contacts - got free drinks of Teh Tarik and Roti Canai sumore. ;)

But 1st and foremost, asked 1st if the Quote is free unless you have 1 mean fierce wok looking face :mad: like me. :eek:

Meanwhile , my floor contractor friendly advice to my shiny marble - just use plain water for washing and antibacterial solution to disinfect. It should keeps the shine for the next 5 to 10 years. Wax solution? - 1 kali 1 to 3 bulan or PRN basis. (prn - when in emergency or necessary ). :D

Price to shine - RM250 for 1,000 sq feet condo ( special price because I made him special kopi kaw kaw )

Before you ask for the contact... he only do at Desa Parkcity and BSD area only.

I use a liquid wash called licin licin, pink cab and it is made of Tea Oil. If you you use 3 caps full, you can skate with your socks....

Can get from DIY shop next to maybank or USJ 14 herbs shop.

If your floor condition is very good to excellent, then mopping products and liquids will maintain the floor to acceptable or satisfactory condition.
If the stone floor is old, lots of pits, discolored, scratched, seriously worn, better to have it grinded down professionally.
I had mine done after I moved in. Your local developer who have a long history of building homes here, had the audacity to handover a brand new house to you with a floor condition thats unacceptable. More or less told "you're ON YOUR OWN on this"..no need to pick a fight with them..no achievement!
