News - What can damage marble flooring?

Here are some aspects that may be damaging your marble flooring:

1. The settlement and tearing of the foundation part of the ground caused the stone on the surface to crack.
2. External damage caused damage to the flooring stone.
3. Choosing marble to lay the ground from the beginning. Because people often only pay attention to color when choosing stone, and do not consider the difference in weather resistance and abrasion resistance of marble and granite.
4. Humid environment. The main component of marble is calcium carbonate, which will expand under the action of water, so the loose part of the stone structure will burst first, leaving it on the marble floor as a stone pit. The formed stone pit will continue to pulverize in a humid environment, causing the surrounding rock to become loose.
5. The wrong way to protect.
For some owners and constructors, even though they applied protective agents to the marble in advance, problems still occurred when it was spread on the ground. This aspect is due to the fact that the cracks and loose parts of the stone have not been well repaired, and the large water pressure on the back of the stone will quickly destroy it due to moisture.
On the other hand, although protection is also done on the front of the marble, the moisture on the ground will also enter the interior of the stone along the cracks and loose parts of the stone, increasing the humidity of the stone, thus forming a vicious circle.
6. Abrasion destroys the luster of the marble on the surface.
The hardness of marble is low and the strength is poor. Therefore, the marble floor, especially the place with more behavior, will lose its luster quickly. Such as walking the man, the foyer, in front of the counter, etc.
