If you have recently had Marble Tiles like the ones from www.irwintiles.ie/marble-stone-tiles installed, you might be wondering what the best way to clean them is.
Marble is a mineral that is found within the Earth’s core. In order to access this, it is mined in quarries and brought to the surface in large blocks. These blocks are then transported to the manufacturing plant that will use a variety of equipment pieces such as multi-wire and block cutters to divide the block up into other shapes. In the case of tiles, the block cutters will take strips of the natural marble and prepare this ready to be cut into smaller pieces for the tiles.
When it comes to cleaning your marble flooring, you will need to ensure that the detergent that you use is pH neutral. This is because detergents that are alkaline or acid can damage the flooring. You should use hot water with your detergent and ensure that you mop the floor with the detergent in small, quick movements. Next, you need to take clean water and mop the floor again to remove any residue from the detergent.
As marble is porous, you need to dry your floor after cleaning it carefully. This means taking a cloth or a towel and drying each tile in turn. Having beautifully clean marble floors are a sure fire way of increasing your properties price and how it looks.
