1. Use a dry clean dust mop type sweeper.
2. Don't use man made cleaners designated for use on tiles.
3. Cleaners that are concentrated with a neutral ph and acid free should be used.
4. Don't use powder for the cleaning purposes.

For cleaning marble we require various steps like:-
1. We have to use baking soda for this purpose.
2. We need brush of high quality to brush over the marble.
3. A wet cloth to make the marble wet after all the steps.
4. Solution to remove strains from the marble.

Most of these products have acids and will etch the marble. I have repaired lots of marble tables, showers, and floors after cleaning crews used vinegar and other harmful products on natural stone. Neutral PH 7 cleaners are the best cleaners to use on marble. If you are not sure how to polish marble call a professional marble restoration company

Neutral cleaners are the way to go for normal maintenance. If its really soiled an alkaline cleaner should be used. Buy professional products, nothing from the grocery store or hardware store.

Cleaning of marble can be very tricky as over cleaning can do away with the layer of polish.But it has to be cleaned regularly to maintain its shine.Therefore a regular routine of cleaning it just with a damp rag and luke warm water should do the trick.Nothing harsh should be used for cleaning of the marble.Also clean or wipe immediately if anything gets spilled on it,because marble,being porous tends to absorb everything. So it is better so be careful then to be sorry as the stains cannot be very easily removed.

For stains such as tea, coffee, soft drinks and other non-oily liquids, the best way to clean them is to get a clean white cloth and pour 20 percent peroxide combined with a few drops of ammonia. Place the cloth over the stain, cover it with plastic wrap and tape it down with masking tape. If you don't cover the cloth, you'll have to add more liquid later to keep the cloth damp. This should be left on the stain for anywhere from 1 hour to 2 days, depending on how long the stain has been there. The earlier you treat the stain, the less time it will take to get rid of it.

For oil stains, sprinkle the stained area with a fine powder. You can use corn starch or whiting powder for this process. After a few minutes, brush off the powder and apply it again. This time, let the powder sit for a day. When you are ready to remove the stain, you can either scrub it with a stiff brush and hot soapy water, or you can use a cloth with ammonia. Be sure to rinse and dry the marble when you're done.

Marble cleaning is more then the ordinary home cleaning which normally female do in home. I am a stone and marble restorer and I know how hard to clean the simple stains like coffee and other drinks.

For marble cleaning don't use harsh chemicals for cleaning. Alkaline cleaning products are more useful for cleaning.

For effective marble cleaning you just need baking soda. If someone has no enough time for cleaning he/she can hire floor cleaning services in Melbourne like Proactive Cleaners. It uses totally safe cleaning agents for cleaning.

Marble is an expensive flooring and it also needs to take care more then tile flooring. You should use natural floor cleaning elements. Don't use vinegar, ammonia, lemon or orange for cleaning marble. You need to know all the thing which harm marble flooring.

Jeez Whiz, there is some bad advise on here. Do not use a vinegar solution to clean marble. If you don't ruin it immediately, over time you WILL ruin it. If professional cleaners are handing out this advise, please take some time to educate yourself!

There are a plethora of things that you can clean marble with. But if you use acidic solutions, you will end up with the etching that JK Marbleman mentioned. This page on our site has a great photo of what etching looks like. It also explains different kinds of "stains" and why every stian needs to be treated differently:

I hope that helps clarify things a little bit.

First you should know what types of stains you have? If you get brown stains like heat stain or water stain, in this cases marble poultice would be perfect idea. The most effective solvent for rust stains are a liquid commercial rust remover, but if you have water stains you can easily remove with a marble cleaner and a soft towel. Although there are many options for cleaning, but might be there are a chance of damage, so it is advisable for this work one should hire commercial cleaner from momentum janitorial as they provide safer, more effective organic cleaning products and equipment for your needs.

As Momentum said, every situation is different. Since each case has so many variables, you have to know exactly what the nature of the "stain" is. Some choose to learn about the various aspects of their stone surfaces (because each kind of stone is different), and others feel it is worth it to just pay a professional to handle it for them. There are pros and cons to both approaches.

A polished marble finish provides a shiny, glossy look to your natural stone, coordinating well with contemporary, modern and traditional designs. I used valore for marble cleaning and restoration . Try it once you may like it . Thanks

This is so true. Because each kind of stain must be treated in a way that is best for that stain. For example, a rust stain may require different treatment than a stain caused by olive oil or coffee. They have different effects on the marble. And acidic liquids can have other consequences too. If you are dealing with marble, learning to identify an etch and how to treat it comes in very handy in many cases.

So, knowing the substance that caused the stain, and knowing how to remove it can solve the problem. However some people just don't have the time to research stains and their affect on marble, so paying a marble restoration company to correct these types of blemishes might be the answer if you don't mind paying for the service.

However, a key to making marble easier to maintain is protecting it so that spills do not affect it as quickly. This gives you time to clean up the liquid before it harms the stone.

With marble you have to be very careful and not use a harsh cleaner. There are special cleaners out there design to handle delicate stones. Perhaps these reviews will help you pick a good one: thereviewgurus.com/reviews/best-granite-cleaner/

Stonetech or granite gold is usually a good choice for marble. Hope this helps.

I would say you have to be very careful with cleaning Marble tiles. Porcelain or Ceramic tiles are easy to clean using alkaline chemicals, while it has to be toned down a lot before you can use on Marble or any natural stone.
