Marble is a beautiful material that is millions of years old, and used to create gorgeous kitchen flooring, bathroom tiles, shower tiles, and more. The important thing when it comes to installing marble in your home is the upkeep. Below, we’ll briefly discuss the “ABC’s,” of caring for marble just to give you a simple background and help you keep your marble flooring and tiles looking marvelous. We are the professionals to call for all types of tile cleaning in Austin, Tx.
So here’s what you need to know:
Use Products Designed for Marble
Many times we’ve warned our clients about the dangers of using cleaning solutions that aren’t meant for the materials needing to be sanitized. By using the proper cleaning solution (or by calling in The Steam Team…), you can avoid etching and dulling your marble surfaces/floorings.
B) Clean Spills Immediately
This one is a no brainer, but it’s incredibly difficult to follow through! Still, we must do our best. Marble is a porous surface, so if stains are left too long before cleaned, they can sink into the surface and cause more permanent damage. In the kitchen, watch out for acids that spew from fruits, juices, or even coffee. Use coasters on your countertops or kitchen islands to avoid stains and obnoxious rings.
C) Protect Your Marble
In the living room, or kitchen/dining areas, it’s best to protect your marble flooring by using area rugs and runners. This can be especially helpful in high-traffic areas, where the flooring endures the most wear and tear. If your rugs are having difficulty staying in place, gripper mats can be found almost anywhere- department stores, grocery stores, etc.
Above all, contact The Steam Team to learn more about properly caring for your marble, or for a professional cleaning. You can trust that we’ll work diligently to restore your marble flooring, tile, countertops, etc, and keep them looking as they should: flawless. We clean all types of tile including ceramic, travertine and many others.
