Classic Marble Restoration located in Plantation, Fla., wants to provide essential marble cleaning tips to our residential and commercial customers. Marble is a durable stone that looks beautiful on a variety of surfaces such as countertops and floors, but it does require specialized care. Using the wrong cleaning process can damage its integrity, leading to unsightly scratches and a loss of sheen.
Anyone attempting natural stone restoration should use mild cleansers that do not contain dyes that can discolor surfaces. To prevent chemicals from seeping deep into the stone, first wet the surface with plain water. Use as small amount of cleanser as possible to dissolve a stain while rubbing gently with a soft cloth. Never use abrasive scrubbing pads that will mar marble, granite or quartz materials.
Many Classic Marble Restoration customers request marble polishing to improve the shine of a stone floor or countertop. We use the best quality equipment with diamond chip discs to apply the correct pressure on stone to remove the thinnest layer possible. This process prevents damaging the stone while also improving its surface appearance.
Natural stone restoration from a trained technician on a routine basis helps to maintain surfaces located on fireplaces and patios. Protect all stone surfaces with devices such as floor mats near doorways and coasters on countertops to prevent unnecessary wear and tear. Avoid leaving water on untreated surfaces to prevent cracks in stone as moisture seeps in causing it to expand.
