How to Clean Marble Floors

Marble is a beautiful stone that makes a luxurious addition to any home. However, marble is also a delicate stone demanding great care to maintain its shine and to prevent scratching. That’s why at Maid Brigade, we’re sharing our recommendations on how to clean marble floors.

Tips for Marble Floor Care

Cleaning marble floors starts with preventative care and regular maintenance. Sweeping or dusting and mopping on a daily basis will remove any dirt or surface debris that could scratch or otherwise harm your marble. It’s also important to take care of spills as soon as they occur so that water or other liquids aren’t allowed to stain your floor.Want to keep your marble floors clean?

  • 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!
  • Clean your marble floors with a highly diluted mixture of ammonia and water or with a highly diluted mixture of dish soap and water. (No more than 1/2 cup per bucket of water).
  • Once you’re finished mopping, we recommended you dry the floor using a soft, fluffy towel. Because marble is such a porous stone, standing water can seep into the stone and cause stains.
