Maintaining Natural Stone Flooring Over the Years

Over time, our natural stone floors begin to reflect the foot traffic and damage they’ve endured. We can’t avoid natural wear and tear, but we can certainly make the right steps when it comes to caring for and cleaning our natural stone flooring. Below you’ll find five easy peasy steps you can take that will hopefully improve the quality and aesthetic appeal of your flooring! The leader in Austin Texas for natural stone cleaning and sealing. 

 

Sweep and Mop Frequently

 

This can’t be avoided! Sweeping and mopping will help control the grit and grime that accumulates on your flooring.

 

Utilize Area Rugs and Door Mats

 

Rugs and mats help to catch dirt that clings to the bottom of our shoes- before it reaches our flooring. You’d be surprised at how much they help out!

 

Daily Spot Clean

 

Spot cleaning will cut down on the amount of work you have to do when you set out to sweep and mop. Use your trusty cleaning solution or a mild detergent.

 

Clean Up Stains, Drops, and Spills Immediately

 

We can’t stress this enough! Drops, spills, stains and accidents should be tended to immediately after they occur in order to keep your floor in tip top shape, and avoid etching and discoloration.

 

Steam Clean

 

And lastly… steam cleaning! Steam cleaning natural stone floors really helps to keep them looking new and well, clean! If your floors are in need of a deep cleaning, you know who to call: The Steam Team.

Can You Clean Marble Flooring? The Steam Team of Austin Can!

Cleaning Austin for 40 years

There are many benefits to having marble floors in your home. To start, they help keep the flooring cool in the summer, and warm in the winter. They also look gorgeous, and are relatively easy to care for! But you may be wondering “how do I care for my marble floors?” Well, to start, we have three different ways that marble flooring can be cleaned- and yes, one of them is steam cleaning! Marble floor polishing experts. 

 

Traditional Mop

 

Many people still prefer the traditional method when it comes to mopping the floor, though it takes a little bit more work! But if you’re going to set out to mop your floor, let us first warn you; don’t use acidic cleaners on your marble flooring, and vinegar (for once) is not safe. Instead, use heavily diluted dishwashing detergent, or a special marble cleaner.

 

Dust Mop

 

Dust mops are great at picking up icky substances that lurk on the surface of our floor, but eventually you’ll need to use a more extreme method. Your marble flooring should be dust mopped on a weekly basis. Now, if you only dust mop, your marble will never be completely clean. But this small chore will help make your cleaning day much easier.

 

Steam Cleaning

 

Whether you’re using a rented machine, or you’ve hired the professionals to do it for you, steam cleaning is your best bet! It reaches deep into the pores of marble, extracting dirt and grime with ease (and without chemicals)!
