    Polish Floor Marble

    I just bought a house in USJ, and since it's an old house, the floor (marble) needs some polishing and waxing. Can anyone recommend me a good service company/person? What's the market price now, btw?

    Thanks.

    My advice for marble floor is DONT POLISH. All you need is to get a professional to grind it, and voila....its like new. DONT polish marble floor. They turn yellow over time. Just mob it with water regularly and you will enjoy years of shine. My experience.

    I think tht is what I intend to ask;those big machine with rotating disc, is that called grinding? Maybe I've mistaken.

    Nowaday people don't polish the marble or terazzo floor with wax anymore .. is only one way... Grind to shine and after that, all you need is to wipe the with floor care once a day will keep the shine for atleast 5-6 years

    A decade ago, I moved here to my spanking brand new house here. The developer have the audacity to handover the home with a terribly finished broken marble floor and they'd IGNORE or do NOTHING regarding the floor finish. The parquet floor was the worst finish I'd ever seen in my life.
    I looked in the Malay Mail papers under services section and found a Malay contractor solely doing floor grinding services. He did my whole house including grinding the parquet floor for RM700. Whole day job and all furniture must be removed.

    All In One

    I wonder if there are any trustworthy, reliable and fairprice contractors who also stay in Subang Jaya or USJ who we all could rely on to carry out/undertake any and all types of work such as reno/aircond service/wiring/plumbing/welding/grill change/painting/marble grinding and small handiman jobs we are likely to face at home.

    Then we will have only one number to call.

    Be careful. I was told that usually such liquid contains wax. Maybe that's why its slippery. And if you use wax over long period, there is the risk your floor may turn yellowish.
