How to clean Natural Stone, Granite or Marble floors?

Marble and granite are once in a lifetime investment, if you have installed such material floors you will remain satisfied throughout the life just for one reason that they are not to be replaced again and again, also if taken care of properly they will last you a long time. House Cleaning Atlanta has some tips on caring for the marble and granite floors.

Cleaning of marble and granite: management of dirt and scratch marks

To clean granite or marble floors is easy: it's a two-part process. First, you need to know how to locate and clean the floor to remove dirt or signs of wear.

Step 1:

When house cleaning, apply a small amount of mild dishwashing liquid or marble cleaner, one with a neutral pH, to a soft microfiber cloth together with a small amount of clean, cold water. Always test any product first in small and inconspicuous areas.

Step 2:

During house cleaning, gently rub the stain or scratch in the direction of the grain in a straight line. As tempting as it is, don't rub in a circular motion, as it may damage the floor.

Step 3:

When house cleaning, once the stain or mark disappears, polish with a dry cloth to dry the area and highlight the shine.

Regular cleaning of granite and marble floors

You also need to know how to regularly clean a granite or marble floor.

Step 1:

When house cleaning, use a specialized detergent or fill a bucket with hot water and 2 teaspoons of dish detergent; a good quality liquid soap like the range offered by Vim is ideal.

Step 2:

During house cleaning, use a clean, soft broom, then clean the floors with short, regular movements. Clean the entire marble or granite floor.

Step 3:

When house cleaning, empty the bucket and fill it with cold water without detergent. Re-mop to remove soap residue from the floor.

Step 4:

Use a clean, dry microfiber cloth, then polish it to clean the floor to make it shine. Never allow marble or granite to dry naturally, as this may cause the formation of watermarks.
