Three Main Marble Care Procedures

Natural marble care can be divided into three basic procedures –  daily maintenance, cleaning and protecting.

Daily maintenance. As a daily routine for floors made of natural stone, especially marble, dry cleaning is recommended. The floor should be carefully swept, it will clean the surface from sand and other abrasive particles. If the surface is polished, the brush should be dry and soft, if unpolished – you may take a harder brush. It is very effective at this stage to use a high-quality vacuum cleaner (with a soft brush, without worn-out or metal parts, so it will not scratch the floor).

Cleaning. It is recommended to wash the stone floor with a separate mop, not more often 1-2 times a week (before wet cleaning the floor should be swept thoroughly or vacuumed). It is not recommended to use powder detergents, unintended solutions or regular soap as stone cleaners: after such treatment, a whitish film on the stone surface is practically guaranteed. For stone cleaning, there are special liquids with a neutral pH. With regular cleaning, simply clean floor with clean water and low concentration stone detergent. In case of significant contamination, it is necessary to use these stone detergents in a stronger concentration. There are cases when a stone is very dirty  (for example, after construction works completion). Here is a neutral cleaner that will not help, so you’ll have to use alkaline cleaners that have a strong degreasing effect. Acidic cleaners are used for granite.

Protecting. To ensure that stone is lasting for a long time and looked attractive, it must be protected from mechanical and chemical influences, from water, dirt, etc. Usually, protective preparations (like sealing) will help to protect the stone floor immediately from many troubles: from paint, oil, grease, tar, mold, moisture, etc. penetration into the pores. They do not change stone color, do not form a film, and when used correctly, leave no traces. For colored granite and marble, there are special color enhancer sealers with color revitalizing effect. The stone color after application of these sealers becomes deeper and more saturated.

From mechanical scratches will help doormats, daily care, and periodic polishing.

    Eugene blew us away with how fantastic our bathroom turned out. We recently moved into an apartment and were disappointed by how poorly the marble stone was kept. A friend recommended Eugene, he was very responsive and professional. You can tell he takes pride in his work. He spent two full days polishing, cleaning, caulking and grouting the entire bathroom and it looks like new. Before he left we asked for a proposal for the kitchen! I highly recommend him and would use him for every stone job we have moving forward.
    He is simply the best.

    The first, I was impressed with how fast they got back to me after asking for a quote. Eugene was professional, fast, and keep his promises. He communicates well and it was very easy to work with him, and I was very pleased. It is very important to me that people who I work with is professional and trustworthy. I can see a long-term relationship with them and am very happy to find them. By the way I found them by looking for an answer on Houzz for my question about my furniture.

    Eugene did right by us! Lowest estimate of several I received, but no corners cut. Very patient answering all my questions by email, super professional and respectful in my apartment, including thorough cleanup, and my counters look great!

    Eugene was great. My contractor ruined our "travertine" floors. Our contractor used the wrong grout and my pale colored stone floors looked dirty. Eugene to the rescue! Eugene scrubbed, polished and regrouted the bathroom stone floor and it looks just the way it was meant to. Eugene told us that the stone was really limestone. He was quiet and went straight to work. I found him to be very respectful. He saw we had new flooring in the house and took off his shoes. Class act. We highly recommend Eugene. Now my family can finally move into our first home.

    Eugene absolutely saved the day for us, and we are so grateful. With only 3 days left to move out of our BK apt, our movers cracked a priceless family heirloom marble dresser top. We were devastated! A friend of mine who does object restoration for museums gave me ABC's website, and Eugene spent a day communicating with me, and came, to our home (in a mask) the very next day and restored our marble on location and in our tight time frame. When he was finished, it was stunning, and we are beyond grateful to him. I hope I never need his services again, but I strongly recommend him to others. At the end, he even helped us correctly package the marble for our move so we didn't need to have the movers risk harming the marble again. We are so grateful to him!
