Marble is a natural stone that is a popular choice for flooring and counters in homes for many reasons. Not only is marble a natural insulator that radiates with proper lighting, but it is also durable and easily maintained. 

The nature of the stone itself lends to its ability to withstand the test of time. Remarkably, marble floors can be sealed with specialized sealer for stain and water resistance. Caring for your marble floors properly will help them keep looking new.

Marble Floor Polishing

Marble is a porous, soft stone vulnerable to etching (The etch mark is a surface damage in the form of a dull mark on natural stone that contains calcium carbonate) and scratching. For this reason, it is important to maintain the integrity of the marble flooring in your home with a little tender loving care.

Luckily, it is easy for professionals with experience working with natural stone to work out any scuffs and imperfections on your marble surfaces. These experts are trained in different techniques to address the level of wear these surfaces may have seen.

How Often Should You Hire Out for Marble Polishing Services

It is recommended that marble flooring be polished professionally every year or once every two years. Why? Doing so regularly will ensure that the marble retains its luster and shines like it did the day the floor was laid down.

A regular cleaning schedule will prevent the buildup of dirt and other particulate matter. This range is because marble floor maintenance is contingent on factors like use and traffic. This can vary from household to household.

Basic Care and Quick Tips

Some basic care tips to help you maintain your marble floor is a smart move. Be sure to avoid using abrasive cleaning material—caustic household cleaners like bleach and anything with citric acid or vinegar should be avoided.

You will also want to avoid using harsh cleaning tools like steel wool, straw brooms, etc., as these can do more harm than good. Address any spills immediately and remove shoes that might track in dirt and other materials when you enter the home.
