In general, a marble floor requires little maintenance. While neglect will spoil its appearance, it will not normally impair its serviceability. When properly maintained, it is doubtful whether marble floors can be excelled by any other type for brilliance and timeless beauty.
Routine maintenance should be carried out with a solution of neutral detergent in water. Cleaning equipment should include mopping equipment or a floor polishing/scrubbing machine. If a machine is used, the pads should be of the synthetic type and not metal fiber, as splinters may detach and cause rust marks to appear on the surface of the marble floor.
Although permanent seals will protect a marble floor very adequately, there are several problems associated with permanent sealing. Discoloration may occur, and the removal of the seal to correct the appearance is a costly, time-consuming job. The chemicals plus required agitation can result in serious damage to the once beautiful floor. For daily maintenance, a neutral type cleaner should be used on the finish or the marble itself.
