Tile and Grout Cleaning

Marble Coffee Table

If you have a marble coffee table and it's in need of some TLC, keep reading and learn how to to clean your marble coffee table.

Marble cleaning is easy and you shouldn't be afraid of it. Yes, marble is sensitive to acidic chemicals and even akaline chemicals, but that shouldn't worry you.

If you tried cleaning your marble table and it's still seems to have stains that just won't clean up, it may be etched.

An etch mark is a what happens if an acidic liquid comes into contact with marble, and a chemical reaction occurs, where the acidic chemical reacts with the calcium in the marble and part of the marble is eaten away.

If this happened, the etch mark needs to be eiteher buffed out or honed and then polished.

If you don't have the proper restoration equipment to hone and polish, you might need to hire a stone professional to polish your marble coffee table.

Marble Coffee Table Some marble surfaces have a honed finish and if there are etch marks on it, are a little harder to see.

Having a honed finish as opposed to a polished finish can be a lower maintenance alternative.

One thing to keep in mind, if a colored liquid did spill on the marble table and penetrated the stone, it may be stained.

Removing stains on marble is quite different than removing etch marks and can be done. Ask your stone professional for help removing stains.

How to Clean Marble

Cleaning marble is the same as cleaning any natural stone and isn't a hard task.

Don't be worried about damaging your stone.

We always recommend neutral cleaners for all natural stone surfaces and that includes marble cleaning.

Neutral cleaners are safe for all natural stone and tile and grout surfaces.

If your marble coffee table is looking a little dull, it probably needs more than a cleaning. It may need to be re-surfaced, or honed and polished. Check out our polishing marble page for more information on restoring the polished finish.

The most important thing you need to know about cleaning marble is not to use strong chemicals.

Acidic and even akaline chemicals will etch the marble. Vinegar is acidic and bleach is akaline, so you do not want to clean marble with either one of these cleaners.

Marble Coffee Table Neutral cleaners for natural stone are recommended and available at tile stores and if you don't have a neatral cleaner, use warm water to clean you marble surface.

When cleaning your marble, clean with your neutral cleaning solution or warm water.

After cleaning your marble, use a dry cotton or microfiber cloth to dry the surface of the marble.

Drying the marble with the dry cotton or microfiber cloth will not only pick up the water, but any dirt still in the water.

This is a very important step that most people don't do.

When it comes to learning how to clean a marble coffee table or just maintaining natural stone and tile and grout, we strive to help educate our customers on the best protection they can have, helping them save time and money in costly restoration costs down the road.
