Things to Consider When Cleaning Marble Tiles


Having marble tiles in your home is absolutely beautiful, whether in the kitchen, living room, bathrooms, hallways or wherever. It is no wonder why marble has been used for decorative purposes since ancient times and is still immensely popular in many places including Boca Raton today.

Marble tiles can seem like a true mark of elegance in any home. Unfortunately with improper maintenance marble floors can seem to build up dirt that is almost impossible to remove. As it turns out, the root cause of this particular problem is that marble tiles need to be swept with a soft bristled broom or vacuumed every day or as close to everyday as possible. Dirt and sand from pets and the bottoms of our shoes are actually abrasive and can grind into marble, scarring it and leaving it discolored with dirt.

However, sweeping marble floors isn’t enough for weekly or monthly care or in the event of accidental spills. Mopping marble tiles with warm water and a marble tile cleaner should suffice in most spill scenarios. For tougher stains, like wine, you may need to use a special marble tile stain remover in order to fully remove the stain. It is imperative for you to make sure that the cleaner is capable of performing on marble tiles as this can cause irreparable damage to your tiles. You should never clean marble tiles with bleach, soap, detergents, or white vinegar as these can actually damage the marble. In addition, high concentrations of bleach can also damage grout, discoloring it and causing it to lose its solidity as it can tend to crumble apart and become soft. Marble tiles are also porous and should be towel dried to prevent stains from setting in.

Any homeowner with marble tiling should know how important it is to keep your marble tiles polished and sealed for added shine and prevent future stains and ground in dirt. There are many products available at the local supermarkets in Boca Raton that are marble tile polishers and any of these will work great to polish marble tiles as long as they are used as directed. However, when it comes to sealing marble tiles this should be left to the professionals who use commercial grade sealants.
