How to Preserve the Look of Your Marble Floors

Mar 3, 2021

Most people choose to install marble floors because of their aesthetic appeal and durability. Marble is a natural stone that can withstand the harshest conditions. Although marble is a durable stone, it doesn’t mean that it can’t become damaged. Here are some things you can do to preserve the look of your marble floors:

Seal it

Having your marble floors sealed is a must if you want them to look good for many years. Marble is a porous stone, which means that it can easily absorb moisture. Your marble floors should be sealed using a neutral pH breathable sealer after installation. After the initial application, you should have your marble floors resealed around every 12 months. Doing this will ensure that your floors are protected against permanent stains from spills, dirt, mud, and other contaminants.

Clean Spills Right Away

Don’t let spills sit on your marble floors. Even clear liquids can attract dirt and bind it to the surface, and even the inner layers, of your marble floors. So, whenever a spill occurs, be sure to grab a towel and soak it up immediately. Using water and an appropriate cleaning solution, carefully apply both things over the spill and use a towel or mop to clean up the liquid. You’ll be glad that you took the time to clean the spill immediately after it happened. 

Regularly Dust and Sweep 

Dirt, dust, and other debris can accumulate on your marble floors. That’s why it’s important to regularly dust and sweep it. It’s the easiest way to preserve the look of your marble floors. Use a dust mop to quickly pick up small dust particles and use a broom for larger particles. Do this at least once a week for marble floors that look clean and beautiful. 

Use Soft Sponges and Cloths

Using harsh cloth can scratch your beautiful marble floors. So, whenever you need to clean them, always opt for soft sponges and cloths. A soft cloth will allow you to clean up spills or do your regular maintenance cleaning without the risk of scratching and wearing down the surface of the marble floors. You can also use soft sponges and cloth whenever you polish your floors.

"WOW, WOW, WOW. I don't know what else to say. With two dogs and a 2 year old running around the house, our carpets and furniture need cleaning on a regular basis. It's nice to know that all I need to do is pick up the phone and I have no more worries. In this day and age, it is a very pleasant surprise to come across a company who will do what they say they will do when they say they will do it and with very little supervision.
