If you have natural stone or marble floors in your home, you know how beautiful they can be. They never fail to give homes a classic, elegant look. However, without proper care and maintenance, they will not stay looking that way forever. Read on for what you need to know to keep your natural stone or marble floors looking their best for years to come.
Watch for Signs of Wear and Tear
With natural stone, you may notice that the tiles begin to look a bit dull over time. This often is the result of many feet walking on them over the years. You should also keep an eye out for any cracks in the stone, which can allow dirt and grime to build up in the stone, potentially causing further damage.
Marble is much softer than many other stones used in floors, so it is much more susceptible to chips, cracks, scratches, and stains. As it is so much softer, marble needs to be cared for on a more regular basis than other types of stone.
Restoring Natural Stone
Natural stone can often be damaged by traditional cleaning products, so it is typically best to trust the cleaning with the professionals. The process usually involves steam cleaning to release dirt and grime from deep within the stone and the surrounding grout. Once the stone is fully cleaned, the next step is to polish it to bring it back to its original luster. For natural stone floors that have been severely damaged or poorly maintained in the past, it may be necessary to fully restore the floors, which is a much more involved process that absolutely should be handled by a professional.
Because marble is so much softer than other stone materials, it can easily be scratched or tarnished by improper cleaning materials or debris on your floors. To keep your floors looking their best, you should always let a professional handle the cleaning and restoration of your marble floors. The experts will have the right products and equipment to care for your marble without causing further damage, bringing it back to its original condition through precise polishing methods.
