Care and Cleaning of Marble Floors

by Michigan State University on Apr 27, 2012


Seal the marble with paste or sealer to prevent stains and soil from being absorbed into the porous surface. Do not let acids contact the marble as they will etch it. Strong alkaline solutions are absorbed by the marble and break down the surface leaving it rough.


If well-sealed, damp-mopping should keep it clean. If soil does not all come off, wash with a solution of mild detergent and water, and rinse thoroughly. Remove stains promptly. Check with a local marble dealer for special cleaners if needed to remove stains. (See Marble Furniture for more on stain removal.)
