Marble flooring is appealing to many different consumers because of its attractive colors and veining. Many different surfaces can be accented with marble specialty tiles; Brooksville residents can choose different styles of flooring, Countertops, and shower stalls. But marble is given a bad rap because of its price as well as being known for being less durable than granite or porcelain, making it difficult to keep nice and cleaned. While it may be true that marble is a more expensive alternative to many other materials, it is not necessarily all that much difficult to clean. There are several different ways to go about cleaning a marble surface.
Be Careful of the Cleaners You Use on a Marble Surface
It is important to be cognizant of the cleaners you are using on your marble surface because cleaners that are too acidic have the potential to actually damage your marble specialty Tiles. Brooksville residents should avoid products that use lemon, vinegar or bleach as these are the most acidic cleaners. Alternatively, it is recommended that owners of marble floors dilute normal dishwashing detergent with water as this is a safe and effective way to clean a marble surface. It is important to also note the contents of the soap you are using as abrasive soup will scratch the marble surfaces of your home.
Removing Stains from a Marble Surface
Removing dirt and grime is not the same as removing stains. Like that of dirt and grime though, stain cleaners and methods may not also be appropriate for marble specialty tiles. Brooksville residents should use simple dish soap and warm water to remove oil based messes such as grease from cosmetics. For more stubborn stains or for those stains that have been around for a long time, it is recommended that individuals use hydrogen peroxide. One thing to keep in mind with hydrogen peroxide is that it will turn your darker marble spots and veins lighter if you are not careful when trying to clean your marble surfaces.
