Marble Floor Care

Caring for your marble floors does not have to be a complicated task. If you follow a few simple steps, you can keep your marble floors looking great and reduce the need for restorative cleaning and refinishing.

The first step is to eliminate exposure to debris and chemicals that can scratch the marble surface. Acidic cleaners and foods can etch marble and remove the shine, resulting in the need for refinishing. Below is a list of products you should avoid from coming into contact with your marble surfaces:

1. Orange juice or other juices that contain citric acid

2. Tile & grout cleaners

3. Vinegar

4. Glass cleaners

6. Ajax or similar abrasive cleaners

7. Toilet bowl cleaner

The following suggestions can be used to keep your marble, travertine or limestone surfaces looking great:

For Honed and Polished Surfaces:

1. Remove dust and debris from the surface. Using a microfiber mop or towel and neutral stone cleaner, wipe your stone surfaces frequently. Spray a small amount of cleaner on your towel or mop and wipe your stone surfaces to remove dust and debris. Make sure the surface is dry when you are done by wiping with a dry mop or towel.

2. Use a microfiber towel to dry up any spills immediately. Rinse thoroughly with neutral stone cleaner and dry completely. For acidic spills that etch the surface of the stone, call Floor Restore to have the surface refinished.

3. If your floor becomes so soiled it needs mopping, use a damp microfiber mop and neutral cleaner. Dry the floor thoroughly and never leave any moisture on the surface.

For Textured or Distressed Surfaces:

1.  Using a high quality broom, remove dust and debris from the surface and crevices. Frequent removal of dust and debris will prevent it from building up in crevices.
2.  Vacuum your floor as much as possible. We highly recommend a vacuum with a soft brush around the pick-up head.
3.  If your floor becomes so soiled it needs mopping, use a damp microfiber mop and neutral cleaner. Dry the floor thoroughly and never leave any moisture on the surface.
The two most important steps are to keep your stone surfaces dry and remove dust and debris as often as possible.
