Consider the type of flooring you’ll be cleaning before hiring a cleaning professional. Check to see whether the service provider provides specialized cleaning for your type of flooring. Whichever type of floor material you have, you must polish and clean it on a regular basis.

When it comes to polishing wood or parquet floors, you have two options: hire a professional or do it yourself. Before you begin the process, you may need to buff or sand your floors, depending on how you choose to go about it.

Because of the sanding procedure, you’ll need to get your hands on a robust electrical edge and floor sander, which should only be used and managed by people with the right technical expertise.


Climate and temperature of surroundings

Depending on the climate type that you are residing in, different types of flooring affect the polishing process and frequency.

For instance, it is common knowledge that cleaning marble flooring can be done at room temperature, but if a home’s temperature is extremely hot, it may need to be cooled to save money. To keep the temperature of your home at the necessary level, you will need to run your air conditioner.

Marble floor polishing often requires frequent cleaning and sealing to keep its appearance for a long period. If you have not polished the floor of your flat in Singapore in several years, the cost of marble polishing as well as the cleaning solutions necessary for this purpose will inevitably arise.


Current condition of the floor

The present state of the floor to be polished is the most essential aspect that might impact the cost of marble floor polishing service in Singapore. Though marble surfaces provide good durability for flooring, it can be discolored and damaged depending on how much foot traffic it receives.


Size of your premises 

The price of cleaning any floor is usually determined by the size of the home or workplace where it is being done. The floor polishing company will generally charge the customer a fixed rate for smaller residences with an area of less than one thousand square feet. If the floor space to be polished is bigger, however, the cleaning company would often charge per square foot. 

The cost of floor polishing service is also determined by the amount of time it takes and the polishing products required. Before proposing a final fee, polishing firms will first measure the offices and household spaces that will be polished.


Type of cleaning and polishing required 

If your marble floor is heavily discolored or has abrasion marks, it may require extensive cleaning before polishing, which should be done using the best cleaning and polishing solutions and the appropriate equipment.

If you have parquet floors, note that the procedure for buffing a parquet floor takes a long time. To begin, the floor is carefully cleansed to eliminate all filth. The floor is then cleaned with an appropriate parquet polish before being sealed to prevent damages, scratches and stains. 

The amount of time it takes to polish the floor will also depend on how much furniture has to be pushed aside. The polishing specialists will begin the polishing procedure when the furniture has been cleared. Because the same team may work on other projects if the polishing is finished promptly, the polishing firm will charge less.


Volume of manpower required for the project

Another element that influences the rates of floor polishing is the number of employees assigned to the project by the polishing business. If only one professional is appointed, the hourly rates will be reduced, but the time it takes to finish the floor polishing project will be longer. 

As a result, when a floor polishing service provider quotes an hourly cost, homes or businesses should always inquire as to how many employees will be assigned to the parquet polishing job. They should be aware that while adding additional personnel may increase the hourly rate, the overall cost may not be much higher because the project will be done faster.


Getting a quotation for your floor polishing appointment

Before requesting a quote, it’s a good idea to check for recommendations and testimonials. You might want to ask your neighbors, family members, or coworkers for recommendations for the best providers for your urgent needs.

You may request a more precise pricing sheet from your preferred service provider after assessing their levels of competence and years of experience in the field of varnishing and/or sanding the type of flooring you have at home.

Marble polishing services in Singapore range from $1.20 to $4.80 per square foot on average. However, there are a number of factors that can significantly increase or lower this cost as mentioned above.


Concluding words

All in all, it’s critical to give enough information regarding the kind, floor size, and style you’re after; this will help you receive a more precise and detailed quotation for the task at hand. However, the cheapest quotation isn’t always the greatest, so make sure you hire someone who has the necessary warranties, licenses, and recommendations.
