|missannienow||I would listen to the several people who posted here who routinely deal with cleaning marble. They had some really good suggestions. I have learned that when I clean a marble floor, I have to use only mild gentle products mixed with water, and after cleaning, I have to re-mop it dry. Otherwise, it will have "water marks" on it which are very visible. I would assume that a marble countertop would be the same....?|

I agree and thank you for speaking up! You sound like you know what you are doing. I have found that using the most gentle cleanser on marble is good and always, after mopping, I go over it with a DRY cloth (preferable microfiber). Marble shows water marks easily, and while CLEAN those water marks "look dirty."

I think all of you should re-read this post! I believe he is telling us the truth. Marble can be tricky to clean. It is easy to scratch it among other problems.

Marble is not a DIY, call professionals or you run a risk of damaging your costly tiles.
Porcelain or Ceramic can be tried DIY

|carpetcleaningcraigieburn||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.|

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.

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.

|CareForStone||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.|

|momentum||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.|

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.

|Cleanexp||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!|

|Fanny3||I use vinegar and baking soda. It works great.|

|PamelaClark||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.|
