"Polishing your marble floors and countertops can give the stone a very elegant and luxurious look."
There is no other material that can compare to a perfectly polished marble floor. It signifies splendor, success, luxury when used on flooring and countertop surfaces. A cared-for, well-protected and maintained marble floor can pass the test of time or so we can see in old world structures, sculptures and buildings like the Vatican in Rome, or the Pantheon in Athens just to name a few.
Just like honing marble polishing can be achieved using special grits of diamond pads that close the pores on the surface of the marble thus giving the light its reflection while making the marble surface silky smooth, after that a diamond polishing powder is applied, scrubbed then buffed out and removed to create more shine and uniformity throughout the tile.
"Even though the pores on the surface of a polished marble are closed, it doesn't mean that foreign substances like acids and chlorides can't penetrate below its surface and create damage like etching and stains."
Stains and etching can be prevented simply by sealing your marble surface after it is polished. However a polished marble surface can still not be completely resilient against preventing acid or oils spills from being absorbed by the stone.
