How do I remove a burn mark on marble?

Q. We have marble / granite tiled floors and unfortunately a rug smoldered overnight and this has left scorch marks. Is there any remedy that isn't as drastic as replacing the now hard to find tiles?

A. The good news is chances are it can be fixed. First, run your hand across the scorch mark. If it does not feel rough, you may be able to remove the marks with some ammonia and water. I like using the sudsy type. Wet the area first and then apply a 50/50 solution of ammonia and water to the area. Allow it to soak for about five minutes. Agitate with a soft scrub brush and see if the marks are out. If they have lightened, continue this process until the marks are gone.

If the surface is rough, it still may be able to be repaired but will require the services of a stone restoration specialist. To locate a quality stone restoration contractor in you area visit: https://surphaces.com/contact-us.
