Marble Shower Cleaning and Stain Removal Methods
Marble floors add elegance to any home interior space. When clean and polished, they are stately and grand. But if you have marble in your home, you know it isn’t without its challenges. Keeping this porous surface both clean and polished can be tricky and requires careful attention. Marble floor cleaning also requires careful consideration for materials and cleaning supplies. Read on to learn everything you need to know about your marble floors and why it might be a good idea to hire professionals to help maintain these beautiful floors.
Understanding Marble and what makes it stain or etch
If you are lucky enough to have marble in your bathroom, you know it adds upscale beauty. The colour variations of marble add a level of sophistication to any space. Yet, the beauty of marble comes with some complications too, especially in the bathroom. Do you struggle with how to keep the marble in your bathroom clean? Read on for some cleaning tips for your marble shower and bathroom.
Ensure your marble is kept dry
While marble in the bathroom is both beautiful and statement worthy, it really doesn’t like to be wet continuously. Daily care of your marble is key to keeping this porous rock from absorbing soap scum and water from the shower. After shower use, wipe the shower down so water doesn’t sit on the marble. Keep microfiber towels near the shower. Once done showering, simply wipe the surfaces down with a clean microfiber towel. This prevents hard water deposits or soaps from absorbing into the porous surfaces of the marble.
Choose Cleaning Products Carefully
Marble is stone and it is also fragile. Choosing the wrong cleaners can actually damage the marble surface. Don’t choose any cleaners with an acid-base. While many swear by using vinegar for cleaning, this is a terrible idea for your marble surfaces. Choose cleaners for your marble bathroom that are Ph neutral.
Tips For Cleaning Marble Showers & Bathrooms
Consider these tips for cleaning and maintaining your marble shower and bathroom surfaces.
- In addition to wiping it down daily. Clean it frequently. This prevents stains and bigger problems from developing.
- Keep your marble tiles dry. After wiping them down, leave on a fan to reduce the humidity in your bathroom.
- As already mentioned, your everyday bathroom cleaning products are not a good choice for marble bathrooms. Read labels and select a cleaner made for marble.
- Keep your marble sealed. This prevents it from absorbing water and soap and getting stains. The only real way to do this is by calling a marble floor expert.
When you clean your marble bathroom, you also want to choose cleaning materials that won’t scratch or damage the surface. Cleaning your marble is not the time to get out the scrub brush. Use fine wire wool which will not damage your marble and can easily remove any residue that is on the marble floor.
