This is the most common question being asked by our customers almost on a daily-basis.

However, before I start explaining how we should clean natural stone surfaces such as marble, limestone and granites on our floors, walls and counter tops,…. let me start answering this question with a question in order to clarify the real meaning of your question., Are you asking to know how to clean marble surfaces from general dirt & grime?

 

Or are you asking to know how to clean stains, etchings from marble surfaces and also make doled marble surface shinier?

 

 If your answer is how to remove stains from marble surfaces and how to make doled marble shiner as you seen from the three pictures above,  that means you would like to know how to “restore/re-finish marble surfaces” witch it is an another subject and will gladly explain “the stain removal and restoration proces for natural stones” on anothertime.

Today lets talk about “how to clean general dirt and grime from natural stone surfaces.”

Before we get into cleaning any natural stone, you must know and not forget one of the most important fact about natural stones; If it’s not all, most natural stones such as marbe, limestone, travertine, onyx are acid sencetive materials and they will react and etcehed with any acidic cleaners. So…, chose a Nutural ph balancesd cleaner made for natural stones, and use oprpiate personal portections, such as gloves, gogles, masks, etc.. for suitable to your cleaning project and locations.
