    What is a "high" price and a "low" price to charge for polishing someones marble floor?

    What do you charge for cleaning & sealing?

    Have you used Spynergy diamond pads? What is your opinion?

    Im not offering that service right now, planning for the next year. But i think the price depends on the polish level the customer wants. In the use of the pads for example they have different level of grit, you can charge $1.5 or $2 per grit level maybe. im not sure what is what people charges but def it depends how polished they want it.

    please get some training before you try to polish stone, and no the sp pads are not the miracle that you think they are. They have there place but real stone work is done with resin pads and acidic compounds. $3 hone only $5-7 high gloss just sayin

    Price for polishing depnds on the current condition of the floor and the desired results. This may mean one or sevceral grit levels. It may require resin bonded diamond discs or it may be done with Spinergy pads. Depends upon the floor.

    I have seen prices from $1.25 per sq. ft. to $7 per sq. ft. For restoring heavy damage on neglected floor, you would be in the $5 to $7 range. For maintenance polishing on a floor that is being doen regularly and stays in decent shape, you would be at $2 or so.

    Cleaning and sealing can also vary. Just like carpet cleaning there are high and low prices. I think the low end for cleaning might be 65 ro 75 cents a sq. ft for cleaning and an equal amount for sealing. But most folks don't want the cheapest deal for a valuable investment like a stone floor. Depending on number of sq. ft., expect to get $1.50 + or - to clean and about $1 more to seal.

    I start at $2 a square for marble, that is assuming the floor is in good shape and just has general traffic wear and it can easily be polished. If I have to get out my Klindex, then I start at $4 a square.

    I don't believe in sealing a marble floor.
