How to take care of marble floors?

11-06-2021

Marble is an exotic and expensive surfacing material that is often used for floors and countertops in modern homes.

Since it is an expensive natural stone, you would need to take good care of the same using the tips shared below – 

 

Sealing your marble floors is always a good idea

Even if you have chosen top quality marble slabs such as Amazing Grey from CMC – one of the leading marble manufacturers & suppliers in India, you would need to make sure that every slab is being sealed using a top-quality marble sealant.

Why?

Well, marble sealants prevent water from seeping into the concrete substrate beneath the marble slabs. This is important as water seepage will lead to water pooling which will eventually degrade the concrete substrate and at the same time, eat away at the marble slabs from beneath.

 

Clean spills as soon as possible

According to a veteran marble slab installer associated with CMC – one of the leading suppliers of the best marble for flooring in India, marble has microscopic pores on its surfaces as it is a natural stone. Hence, in case the marble floor in your living room or the marble countertop in your kitchen was a recent victim of a wine or gravy spill then clean it up as soon as possible. It is the only way to prevent the marble floor slab or countertop from developing a permanent stain!

 

Waxing your marble floors will restore their shine and protect them as well

Waxing has always been an effective solution for homeowners who have marble for floors in their abode but before you ask a team of experts to carry out a waxing session, you would need to make sure that the marble floors are cleaned thoroughly.

The steps to cleaning your marble floors should consist of –

  • A thorough vacuum session
  • A wet wipe session using a mop and water mixed with a neutral cleaning product
  • A drying session using microfiber rags – this is essential as it is the only way to prevent water stains from forming on the marble floor slabs

After the cleaning session is completed, ask the team of experts to start applying self-polishing wax on every nook and cranny of the marble floor slabs in your home. You have to make sure that the team of experts are using rags made of lamb’s wool and at the same time, ensure that the wax is applied on the marble slab surfaces in a circular motion. Manual application of the wax is feasible when you want the marble countertops in your home to be waxed but in case of large areas such as the floor of your living room, you should hire a team of experts who carry tools like a buffing (polishing) machine with them.

 

Conclusion

Marble floors need a bit of extra care especially when compared to tiled floors or mosaic floors since marble costs more and with a bit of extra care, you can make sure that the marble floors in your home or place of business remain aesthetically pleasing for decades to come. With that stated and out of the way, in case you need more details regarding marble floor maintenance then be sure to get in touch with the porcelain slab supplier in India that sold you the marble slabs, for the best results.
