Some people think marble stone is difficult to clean and some think it is time-consuming. Trust us it is neither time consuming or difficult if done in a proper way. Marble cleaning needs a unique and special cleaning technique and routine, which should be done on a regular basis, it is really very simple if learn how to perform it correctly.
If you want to use the marble floors or any other surface for long times and you want the marble look glossy all the time. Most importantly, you should be careful about the materials that you apply on the marble. There are many options available in the supermarkets and you can also give a try on DIY cleaning products as long as they do not contain any harsh agents which are useful for marble cleaning.
Do: Seal the Marble Only When Needed
It’s a fact that marble surface needs sealing since it might need extra protection against external factors like dust, water, and moisture. You can purchase the sealant from your local store, then apply it on the marble surface according to the instruction on the product. This will not be time-consuming or a tough job if you follow the set of rules.
Don’t: Do not Seal the Marble Frequently
Some marble types do not even need sealing. You need to learn before the furnishing or installation. The rest of the types still requires sealing but only sometimes. If you apply excessive sealant, it will create a dirty look because the thick layer above it will make the marble look uneven, this is because the marble will not absorb an excessive amount of sealant.
Do: Respond Immediately to Stains
As we all know that marble is a sensitive rock compared to others as we have already mentioned it in our previous blogs. Marble has a porous structure. Porous structure makes it sensitive against acidic substance such as coffee, fruit juice, wine, soda and harsh cleaning products. This is the reason you should clean the spill on the marbles as soon as it occurs. If it is ignored, these stains have the ability to make a permanent stain.
Don’t: Do not Use Anti-Scaling Cleaning Agents for Marble Cleaning
It is very important for you to use correct products for cleaning such a sensitive material. Whereas marble is a form of limestone, never ever use anti-scale agents to clean it. Such agents not only cause dullness on the surface but also damage the natural form and structure of the marble.
Do: Utilize Soft Cloth or Sponge to Clean the Marble
Warm water and special marble cleaning agents are enough to remove stains and dust from the surface. Add some water and soft cleaning products in a bucket and apply this mixture with the help of a sponge or a clean soft cloth. Then rinse and dry the area thoroughly. We recommend soft material like cloth and sponge because it doesn’t leave scratches.
Don’t: Never leave the Floor Wet
Again, marble has a porous nature, marbles can easily absorb liquids. If you don’t dry the surface and let it wet after you have done a cleaning, the surface will absorb the water. It will make sticky and create a dull look.
