For thousands of years, marble has been used to create elegant floors. Its beauty and refinement make it very popular even today. It is one of the most beautiful natural stones. However, like all other natural stones, marble must be cleaned regularly and carefully to avoid staining and deterioration. If your marble floor gets old and dirty, here's how to clean it and restore its luster.

  • Drag the floor with a dry mop to remove dust and dirt.
  • Then mix 3 tablespoons of baking soda and the right amount of dishwasher liquid soap with a quart of warm water to prepare a solution. Stir well. Commercial stone cleaners are another solution for this purpose.
  • These DIY steps can help you clean the marble floor effectively.
  • Fill the bucket with tap water.
  • Immerse a soft cloth, non-abrasive sponge, or soft brush in a soap solution and scrub the floor.
  • Rinse the sponge or brush frequently with water. When the water gets dirty, empty and repopulates the bucket.
  • Mix 1 cup of plaster, diatom soil, talcum powder, or white chalk and water into a paste. Stir constantly. Stir well until you have a thick, sour cream-like concentration.
  • Wet the stained area with distilled water and apply a thick layer of paste to the stain.
  • Cover each stain with cling film and secure all edges with masking tape to secure the paste.
  • Place for about 24-48 hours until completely dry.

Remove stains from the marble floor

Marble is a beautiful but porous natural stone, stains can easily appear on natural stone. If the floor is not sealed, it absorbs the liquid easily, leaving stains. Many types of liquids leave stains on marble, including water. Therefore, it is best and most important to wipe off the spilled liquid and clean it immediately before any stains appear on the floor. Cataplasm treatment is a very gentle way to remove stains. Here are some remedies and treatments for cleaning stains on the marble floor by Cleaning Marble Polishing, a professional cleaning company in Dubai.

Remedy 1

Start by turning baking soda and water into a paste (concentration like sour cream). Then absorb the stains and remove as much of the substance as possible. Spray a little water on it. Apply large amounts of soda and water to stains and cover with cling film. Place it for 24 hours. Soda helps dry and pull out stains. After 24 hours, remove the paste and clean the area with mild soapy water. If necessary, you can also use the new paste.

Remedy 2

Mix 1 cup of unbleached flour, 3 tablespoons of dishwashing liquid (don't use bleach, just mild liquid soap), and water. Make a thick paste-like sour cream. Now apply the paste to the stain, about 1/4 inch thick, cover with cling film and leave for 24 hours. Wash the paste and surrounding area with soapy water. If the stain is still present, reapply the paste and repeat the entire process.

Remedy 3

Pour 1/8 cup of alcohol into a 16-ounce bottle. Add a few drops of liquid dishwasher detergent. Then fill the bottle with water. Shake well before use. Spray the liquid on the stain and wash it off.

Remedy 4

Fold a piece of cotton gauze the size of a stain. Soak it in hydrogen peroxide and squeeze out excess. It should be wet but not dripping. Apply the cotton gauze to the contaminated area and cover it with cling film. Seal all edges of the cling film with tape to the gauze. Place an object on the gauze to apply pressure and weight to the stained area. Leave to rest for 24 hours, then check and reapply if necessary.

Precautions. This product may lighten the color a bit. Be careful when using dark marble. Be sure to test the entire stain in a small area before using it.

Remedy 5

Spray distilled water lightly on stains. Then sprinkle with a thick layer of corn starch. Put it on it for 24 hours. If necessary, remove and reapply.

For the greasy stains, sprinkle the cornstarch immediately and leave to rest for about 15 minutes. Then wash it off with mild soapy water. Corn starch removes stains effortlessly.
