Testing is important
Paying attention to detail is key.
On site estimates reveals everything about you and your company.
Like dayron said it sells the job.
I have found after getting a job the evalution form with my notes helps create a detailed work order that is organized and well written so our crews know exactly what they need to do.

Sorry for the delay response I went to see the home in question and efflorescence was on 60% of the floor and there was 40% point difference on moisture meter. I told client we need to let the floor dry, I would be coming by on a weekly basis to make measurement once floor is acceptably dry I would come back and buff the floorMoral of this tale, no matter what is your experience do your test (acid, scratch, moisture, gloss meter) before any job. II have been telling my dad this but he is old school and he needs no gadget to tell him it's marble, well he now.

yes, the dry reading will be your baseline. If there is a point difference of 30% I would consider that wetOn Fri, Jul 19, 2013 at 10:26 PM, Hector Castillo <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:
So your saying take and dry reading and that’s is you baseline for dry stone and measure the floor and how big of a difference will there be for dry and wet on the meter?
I use a Ryobi, you can buy at Home depot or Lowes. Moisture readings on stone are relative, it wont give you the exact percentage of moisture. I would take a reading on a dry piece of stone and compare it to what you get on the meter.
What machine do you use for the reading and what reading is wet and what is dry? . We looking for ?
How you dry it?

Take some moisture readings. I am assuming the floor is a slab on grade?

I guess the open veins could be a sign of too much crystalizer or spalling.
Or a real crappy crema.

The water traveled down the veins, most likely they were opened up.
What is the condition of the grout lines-sounds like there may not be any grout in the joints.
The water went below the stone and then came the eff. Didn't know it could happen that fast either.
Needs to dry out.

Did you try the 11,000 grit pad you have?

I was feeling pretty lousy today, caught a bug in South America and been feeling it ever since I got back. My guys were working today, and my dad also was doing a job as well. It was a crema marfil full of veins everywhere. He honed and powder polished the floor and it turned out great. While he was cleaning up and others were loading truck. He saw effloresence after less than 1/2 after he finished and it was concentrated on the veins of the crema. After calming him down ( he was about to crystallize floor aaaaggghhhh) he said there was some efflorensence in only a small area before he started.
What has me perplexed is the speed of which the efflorensce came about. Has anyone encountered this this quick. The home was no where near the beach and it was inside the home ( we live in south florida )
I will go tomorrow to see the floor and keep you informed
