There is this liquid called Tenax Wax, meant for stone floors. Can be found at Home Fix or most paint shops.

Costs something like $10 -$20 per litre, not cheap. Comes in a light blue tin bottle.

Basically, liquid form applied by cloth to form a layer of wax. Looks real impressive, but it does require regular application to maintain the look.

If your is a marble floor you need to get pple to polish it for you. No way you can do it on you won unless you have got the machine. Anyway one polish can last for quite sometime. Some cleaning company provide polish service.
