How to clean and restore marble floor?

Marble is significantly denser and harder than travertine and limestone, which are near cousins. Marble tiles are popular in many boutique hotels and other fashionable venues because of their longevity and beautiful surface texture. Marble comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, each with its own set of features. There’s the exquisite crystalline structure of Ibiza Bianco, as well as more traditional veined marbles like the ever-popular Bianco Carrara Marble and all its varieties like Statuario and Calacatta, which have been used for decades. Marble tiles come in a variety of finishes, including honed marble, which has grown increasingly popular for its modern silky appearance. Polished marble is still quite popular because it gives off a feeling of grandeur and elegance, whereas tumbled marble gives off an aged aspect. At Tile Cleaning & Restoration we take a challenge to not only clean and maintain but also restore marble floors. However, if you would like to know how to maintain a long-lasting final effect of your marble floor – simply follow our instructions or contact us directly.

Cleaning Marble floor in a few steps.

You may put your marble tiles in a variety of places, and each one requires a little different cleaning approach. We will discuss here what should you do to clean your marble floor.

Marble floor tiles cleaning

There are various factors to bear in mind when cleaning marble floor tiles:
– Bleach should never be used since it causes splotching and discoloration.
– Because they are sensitive materials, any acidity will destroy the tile’s body.
– The improper cleaning will wear down the sealant, causing more debris and filth to accumulate on the tile.
– You’ll want to use a professional-grade cleaner or something extremely delicate to clean your marble tile floors properly and safely. Professional-grade cleaning, such as using our Stone Sope (Tile Cleaning & Restoration PPS technicians will leave a bottle for every customer), is recommended, although we recognize that there may be financial constraints.
