Cleaning Marble Floors
Marble flooring requires special attention. The natural oils produced by your body or products you use can easily be transferred to marble floors, causing dullness or spots that will show dirt.
Can water damage marble floors?
Yes. Local water contains minerals like calcium, chlorine, salts, and magnesium dissolved in the water. When these minerals contact marble, they can cause yellowing or white streaking depending on which stains already exist on the floor. With our Dallas Water Damage Restoration service, we can help you with that.
What are other causes of marble damage?
Water isn't the only culprit when it comes to harming your marble floors. Acidic substances like wine, juice, coffee and soda can damage marble over time.
Do not clean marble flooring in the home with anything other than neutral pH cleaners. Never use acidic, basic, or abrasive products on marble--even if they are labeled non-abrasive. Over time, these liquids will eat away at your marble's protective seal and lead to discoloration or watermarks.
What about smoke and water damage to marble fireplaces?
Marble is porous so that that smoke damage can penetrate the surface layers of marble quickly. Regularly removing soot or smoky odors from your fireplace makes it easier for you to remove scum lines and stains caused by the smoke in the future.
If you have a marble fireplace, consider having it cleaned professionally at least once a year to help remove any built-up dirt, soot, or grime. This will also help to prevent the formation of unsightly stains from damaging your fireplace's aesthetics.
Can marble flooring be restored?
Yes, in most cases, marble flooring can be restored to its original luster. But it's important to act quickly because once marble floors have been damaged, they cannot be repaired and will need to be replaced.
