Marble, if given sensible and routine maintenance over the years, will give continuity and lasting service along with the beauty marble brings to your home. Daily maintenance can be done easily, and with the least expense by daily housekeeping. Keep the floor or surface clean of dirt, water build up and ice salts used to melt ice at the door by placing a special mat with a rubber waterproof backing. This helps tremendously in stopping the penetration and abrasion of dirt and other debris.
Mop frequently with warm plain water using a cotton string mop, and whenever possible quickly blot up any spills, especially grease and oil, do those immediately; this will help to minimize their absorption into the stone.
Routinely using detergents for cleaning is not the best method of keeping your marble floors clean, as they can dull your polished stone surfaces, as well as contain harsh chemicals that can cause damage to your marble floors over time. For extreme griminess, add a minimal amount of ammonia to water, so little that there is no odor present with the mixture when diluted. You can also alternate the use of a diluted solution of a neutral ph detergent, first testing on a small area of the marble being cleaned
Periodic polishing by your Marble Professional contractor will maintain the luster and more importantly, keep significant re-soiling and deterioration from ruining your Marble application.
