How to Clean Marble Tile
There are a few important steps you should take to ensure that your marble tile can be cleaned properly. The way you clean marble tile depends on what kind of finish it has on it, or whether it is honed or polished. Typically, since marble is softer than porcelain and granite, it needs to be cleaned more often. A mildly abrasive dish soap should work to clean the surface, but be careful not to use anything acidic. Mix it with water to dilute the soap before you begin. A hot wet cloth is best for wiping the tile down – again, make sure it isn’t abrasive.
If you are taking things to the next step, and you want to polish your tile as well, make sure to invest in a grinder and a sander to completely sand down the marble first. You shouldn’t have any cracks, scratches, bumps, or uneven textures before you begin. Check with the manufacturer to see what cleaning and polishing materials are best used on your specific marble.
Marble Tiles are Timeless and Valuable
It’s easy to understand why marble continues to be a popular material choice for flooring, backsplashes, decor, and much more. With a variety of different functions and design ideas, marble tile can certainly add value to any home. Whether you use it in the kitchen, bathroom, hallways, or even your stairs, there is plenty of room for creativity and sophistication when it comes to marble tile.
