Did you know that it is a common misconception that using wax on marble floors is the best way to restore their natural shine? Some people use wax on marble because it can polish as well as protect. The problem with wax is that it can lead to discoloration of your stone. Using wax on marble floors also creates additional maintenance because the wax will easily scuff or dull. Wax will not allow your stone to breath and will ultimately need to be stripped from the stone – especially if there are layers upon layers.
It is ideal to maintain your stone by dust mopping floors regularly to pick up loose particles as well as damp mopping with a pH-neutral cleaner. As the floors begin to show normal wear-and-tear, call our team at The Marble Restoration Company; we can use a polishing compound and impregnating sealer to polish and protect your floors the best way possible for your stone.
