There are several types of stone flooring used in living areas. Popular choices include limestone, marble, and slate.
In general, stone floor cleaning is relatively easy because the floors are fairly durable and are usually sealed to minimize staining.
These stone floor cleaning tips can help remove the dirt and stains of daily family life.
Sweep marble floors and other stone floors daily. You want to remove dirt before it gets ground in.
If you have a textured stone floor, vacuuming works better than sweeping.
Immediately after sweeping, damp-mop the stone floor, using a clean mop that has not been exposed to strong cleaners.
Cleaning granite and marble floors regularly is key to keeping them looking good. Wash your stone floors regularly with the cleaner the manufacturer suggests, if possible.
Whichever cleaner you use, be sure to rinse twice, so soil residue from the rinse water doesn't dull the floor surface. Squeegee away any surface water to avoid water spots. Never use vinegar - it can strip the shine from your floors.
