Sealing Marble Tile
If you have a marble tiled floor, it is susceptible to staining if it's not sealed.
Although sealing marble tile won't completely stop liquids from absorbing into it, it will give you more time to wipe up spills.
The porosity of marble will differ greatly from a polished finish to a honed finish.
Honed finishes will be much more porous than the polished finishes.
Our recommendation would be sealing marble tile when it's first installed and sealing after a deep cleaning every year, depending on your foot traffic.
If you don't have a lot of traffic moving through your marble floors, you can wait two or even three years.
One thing about marble you should be aware of is that marble is a calcium based stone like limestone and travertine and is susceptible to etching by any acidic liquid.
Sealing marble tile will not protect it from etching, so caution should be used with any acidic liquid (e.g. orange juice).
In general, mopping tile floors regularly with a neutral floor cleaner and a flat mop, will be the best and easiest way to maintain the tile floors.
How to Seal Marble Tile
Maintaining Marble Tile
Maintaining marble tile can be easy, as long as you know what cleaners are best and how to use them.
When cleaning marble we recommend using a neutral floor cleaner. Neutral meaning neautral pH or pH of 7 on the pH scale.
For daily cleaning, use a microfiber mop, with warm water and your neutral cleaner. Mop your floor and dry with dry mop.
When it comes to cleaning and sealing marble tile or cleaning ceramic 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.
