Perhaps the home you desire represents your personality, embodies your family core values, and welcomes your loved ones with open arms. When it comes to picking out the perfect materials to create this very atmosphere, options are plentiful. Do you dream of cozy wood floors or plush carpets? Dazzling tile, or stunning natural wood? While the choices seem endless, there’s one material that stands out amongst its competition: Marble.
Marble is a natural material formed from crystallized limestone. It is used in flooring, countertops, walls, columns, vanities, and more. It’s gorgeous, modern, and luxurious; one of the few downsides to installing marble is that it’s not as easy to clean and maintain as other materials.
Marble’s components make it extremely sensitive to acid and cleaning products. In addition to this marble is susceptible to scratches. Over time, it loses its luster and becomes dingy or scratched.
When cleaning marble tile or flooring, avoid cleaners which use bleach, lemon, or vinegar. Instead, you can try a mixture of warm water and diluted dish soap. This homemade mixture is both cost-efficient and gentle on the marble’s sensitive surface.
If you set out to use an all-purpose cleaner, remember to dilute with water, and to also check the label on the bottle! Make sure the label specifically states that the solution is safe to use on marble.
