    For maximum results, we suggest treating it on a yearly basis to maintain marble shine. If once a year is not possible, we suggest having it treated at least once every 3 years.
  • Q.
    How should I take care of my marble floor?
    — By Ms. Lee
    A.
    Water is the best cleaning agent for marble floor. Use a damp cloth to mop on a weekly basis to maintain the cleaness and shine of ypur marble floor. If water is not enough, neutral PH detergent is your second alternatives. Avoid any acidic cleaning products as it will ruin your marble flooring. But most importantly, if there is any incident or spoilage, make sure to clean it immediately to prevent any staining on your marble. The longer you leave a stain untreated, the deeper it sits into the marble and harder it is for it to be removed.
  • Q.
    What causes marble to stain?
    — By Ms. Lee
    A.
    The weather and everyday wear and tear can have a negative effect on marble but the main cause of problems with marble staining is due to moisture in the stone caused from spilled drinks or the wrong type of detergent (especially the acidic ones). Oils, dyes/inks also can leave stains if not treated,the depth of penetration will depend on a few different things, like for example the finish on the stone and the amount of time the oil is left on the marble, however, the longer you leave it on the marble the deeper the stain will be and the harder it will be for us to remove the stain. Another common stain you’ll find on marble is rust. These stains are reddish-orange and are caused by the oxidation (rusting) of iron. Water penetrating bad joints or cracks can activate or accelerate the rusting. If the rust is only on the surface of the stone it will be easily removed with a cloth or some abrasive pads, however, if it’s within the marble itself it will be much harder to remove the stain completely.
