Each method may not be effective on all stone types and the use of more than one may be necessary. Our experts will explain our process in detail and provide you the most accurate information to make sure your floor looks great for years to come.

Marble and Stone Floor Polishing

Daily Maintenance of Marble
(and Other Stone Flooring)

The daily maintenance of polished stone is quite simple: dust mop and damp mop daily. The main reason polished stone becomes dull is that we walk on them and "grind" in dust, sand and other fine, gritty matter that abrades the finish. Although the scratching is very fine, it eventual will diminish the quality of it's polished look. In addition dust on the floor can cause it to be very slippery.

Dust mopping should be done with a clean, non-treated dust mop as many times a day as possible. The more you dust mop the better. The floor should be damp mopped at least once a day with a good quality neutral cleaner. A string-type cotton or synthetic mop works best. Do not over wet the floor, a light damp mopping is all that is needed. Particular attention should be given in to mopping into the grout line lengthwise. As you dust mop, much of the dirt falls into the grout line and can only be removed by mopping it out. Note, that if the grout is of the sanded type do not use the method because it may abrade the mop and leave the lint or fibers in the grout. Sanded grout should be scrubbed periodically with a brush and the residue sucked out with a wet vac.

Make certain that the cleaner you use has a "neutral" Ph of seven. High alkaline or mild acidic cleaners can etch and damage the finish. Be careful with concentrated "no-streak" cleaners. Although they may be a neutral Ph., some contain chelates which can dull the finish. Chelates dissolve or destroy calcium in the water and eliminate hard water deposits. Since marble and limestone contain a large amount of calcium, the chelates also attack the finish.

Last, but very important, keep mops, rags, sponges, dust mops and other supplies to clean the marble separate from other cleaning supplies. A mop used in a kitchen may have grease or oil in it. A mop used in a restroom may have acid from toilet bowl cleaners or urine in it. Both can have a negative affect on polished stone floors.
