Cleaning Marble Tile
Cleaning marble tile is not hard and when taking care cleaning marble, it can be done by any homeowner.
I constantly hear people say or read on the internet how delicate marble surfaces are.
Yes, they are higher maintanence than a ceramic tile, but they are not that delicate or hard to clean.
As long as you know what to clean them with, and you clean them regularly, they should stay looking great for
years to come.
In general, mopping tile floors regularly with a
neutral floor cleaner
and a flat mop, will be the best and easiest way to maintain your marble floor.

How to Clean Marble Floors
Cleaning marble tile is the same as cleaning any natural stone and isn't a hard task.
Don't be worried about damaging your stone. Knowing what products to use and care, when cleaning marble is all that is needed.
We always recommend
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 floor tile 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 tile is not to use strong chemicals.
Strong meaning 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.
Neutral cleaners for natural stone are recommended and available
and if you don't have a neatral cleaner, use warm water to clean you marble surface.
If you are cleaning a marble floor, mop the marble tiles with your neutral cleaning solution or warm
water on the floor.
After mopping, use a dry cotton cloth to dry the surface of the marble.
Drying the marble with the dry cotton 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.
What ever you clean your stone surface with, always rinse well and dry completely with a cotton or
Drying it completely helps because any wet area left to dry, may have dirt left in
it which doesn't evaporate like the water does.
