Cleaning Marble Floor Tiles
Since floors see the most traffic, wear and tear will happen much more quickly than other areas.
When it comes to cleaning marble floor tiles, there are several things to keep in mind:
– They are delicate materials, anything acidic will cause damage to the body of the tile.
– Don’t ever use bleach, since this will cause splotching and discoloration.
– The wrong type of cleaner will wear down the sealant, leading to more debris and dirt being stored on the tile
– To effectively and safely clean your marble tile floors, you’ll want to use either a professional-grade cleaner or use something very gentle.
– We encourage professional-grade cleaning with something like our Stone Cleaning Kit but understand there may be cost restrictions involved. Here’s a quick DIY tactic to help you.
