Fixing sealer on polished marble floor tile


Just recently I had marble floor tile installed in my kitchen. I purchased HG Impregnating Floor Sealer and attempted to apply it as directed. It turned out okay for the most part however some spots near the grout lines left a visible line on the tile where the squeegee overlapped. How can I remove the sealer from these particular tiles so that I can reapply the sealer. These areas also have some fine air bubbles which need to be removed as well. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I was reading somewhere, that wet sanding may be an option. Anyone have any comments on this?

Thanks

Fixing sealer on polished marble floor tile


Polished marble? If so, you wasted your money as no polished marble will take a sealer. Physically impossible. But reapplying the original selaer and wiping it all off with a rag is about all I can suggest.

Oh - and fire the guy who told you your polished marble needs a sealer. And good luck with marble in a kitchen and start increasing your luck by finding a reputable stone restorer - you'll need him one day.
