    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.

    Thanks for sharing such relevant information about caring marble floor. It is important that the cleaning solution used on marble be pH neutral. Do not use acidic cleaners on your marble or it will scratch and lose shine. This means no vinegar! You can clean your marble floors with a highly diluted mixture of ammonia and water or with a highly diluted mixture of dish soap and water.

    I didn’t know that spilling things like coffee, carbonated drinks and other things on a marble floor could leave a mark on it. I’ll have to watch out for that sort of thing in the future. It’s also interesting to know that specific detergents would be more harmful to the look of your floor than anything. I just moved in with my partner and it doesn’t seem like he takes good care of the marble flooring in his apartment. I’ll make sure to get him to hire some marble floor polishing services to have the place cleaned and polished so that his apartment can look good as new.
