If you have marble floors in your home, you need to take the time to ensure they are taken care of properly. You need to use a soft dust mop over the entire surface every day to prevent a buildup of dust, dirt and debris. Even tiny particles left on the floor can be ground into the pores of the marble and leave a stain. In addition, the small particles can scratch the surface, making it more susceptible to stains. The floor will also require regular cleaning and buffing to maintain its beauty and luster. Here are a few reasons you should hire a professional marble cleaning company for regular maintenance instead of doing it yourself.
Clean Without Damaging the Marble
Certain chemicals and products will etch the marble. If too much water is allowed to seep into the pores, it may cause any iron in the veins to rust. Professionals have the experience and equipment to work with the marble without damaging it. If something does go wrong, they also know how to correct it so your floor looks as beautiful as when it was first installed.
There is bound to come the time when you did not wipe up a spill before it seeped into the pores, or scratch the surface accidentally no matter how careful you are. Professionals can grind and buff the area, removing the damage and keeping the floor looking great.
Stripping and Sealing
Marble needs to be kept dry. The best way to do this is with a sealer. Professionals can apply a breathable sealer evenly to avoid having a buildup in areas. This will make it easier to strip and clean regularly. In addition, they will know when to use a stripping agent and what type will not cause any damage to the marble.
You could rent the equipment to strip, grind, and buff and polish your marble floors yourself. However, even if you have a bit of experience with the machines to do this, you won't have as much as the professionals who do this daily. You went to a lot of trouble and expense to have a marble floor, you would not want to have it ruined, or looking anything less than perfect. Using professional marble cleaning services will ensure this. It will also save you the time and physical labor of doing the chore yourself. Have the professionals do the job while you are at work for the day and come home to your floors looking like new.Share
