  • Thanks for sharing this post. I think carefully following these tips can remedy some of the interior flooring problems that people might be facing these days.

  • You are right about marble being regarded as a prestigious and elegant surface material. It is a stone that lends its self quite nicely for flooring, countertops, showers, steps, walls and pretty much anywhere. But it has its own inhering weaknesses. It is a very soft stone and it scratches very easy. It is a calcite stone, meaning that is made up of mostly calcium, calcium does not do well with acidic chemicals. This means that we have to be very careful not to use any cleaning product that has acid such as general purpose cleaners or bathroom cleaners.
