The weather is getting warmer, the days are longer and the sun is shining, yet your marble floors aren’t gleaming the way you’d like? You figure all they need is a good scrub, so you grab your bucket and mop — and get to work. But after toiling for hours, your floors still look dull and lifeless. What’s going on?
You might think marble is impervious to harm or wear. After all, Michelangelo’s David, a marble masterpiece of the Renaissance era, has withstood the test of time after more than five centuries. Of course, he has the benefit of not having anyone walk all over him or even touch him. But eventually, foot traffic bringing in dust, dirt and sand along with normal wear and tear leads to small micro-abrasions that gradually etch the surface of marble like sandpaper, creating a dull, lifeless appearance. While you may think your marble is “hard as a rock,” it’s actually one of the softer varieties of natural stone, making it more susceptible to this type of damage.
Tracked-in dirt and sand, as well as acidic cleaners, can also play a part in scuffing, scratching or etching your stone. In commercial settings, marble can start visibly showing wear patterns in as little as six weeks without correct maintenance. For this reason, it’s important to use the right type of floor mats, as opposed to “décor” mats, to trap debris before it has a chance to damage the finish. In addition, never drag furniture or other heavy objects across an unprotected floor. Once damage occurs, all the cleaning in the world sadly isn’t going to bring back the shine it once had. If cleaning isn’t working, it’s because it can’t until it’s repaired.
