Our process for cleaning marble consists of using appropriate equipment and machinery, as well as hand washing the corners, edges, and hard-to-reach areas. We use a combination of neutral ph cleaners and degreasers that are safe for your stone, your family and the environment. We ensure the most thorough and detailed cleaning possible. Improper or aggressive cleaning can cause damage by opening the pores of the stone, making it more susceptible to staining from pet accidents, dirty mop water, spills, and grime/asphalt from shoe traffic. Our 18+ years of experience with marble and knowledge of the stone itself will avoid these issues.
As with all of our work, our technicians move most furniture, excluding breakable and smaller items. We pay close attention to detail and ensure there is no dust and no mess created. We are extremely careful not to cause any damage to adjacent surfaces such as walls, baseboards, cabinets, appliances and carpets.
Marble tile can crack or buckle with expansion and contraction of the surface underneath. It is typically caused by temperature change. Depending on the severity of the damage, we can repair the tile or arrange to replace it.
Marble is very sensitive to acidic products. They cause “dull” spots or marks known as etches. Food, drink and certain cleaning agents will etch marble. We use our stone polishing process to remove these etches and restore the stone’s finish.
Frequent sweeping and mopping maintain marble’s quality. When mopping, frequently change mop bucket water to fresh water. This ensures the stone will continue to look great for years to come. On average, depending on traffic and usage, professional cleaning and sealing is recommended every 3-5 years.
When properly maintained and cared for, this stone will stay beautiful and functional for generations. Contact us for detailed Care Instructions on the maintenance of your natural stone.
