I have used Kiwi for 10+ years and I keep coming back! I can get a cleaning in a reasonable amount of time, I know the cost in advance, professional teammembers do great work on the phone and in my home and always a great outcome. I have used them for carpet mostly, but I did use their tile cleaning service 2 years ago and the tile/grout cleanup came out like new. Highly recommend their services!

Revitalize Your Marble Floors with Expert Care from KIWI Services

Marble floors can make any space look luxurious—whether it’s a bathroom, kitchen, living room, or basement. Marble flooring comes in many colors, all of which can elevate any room that it’s installed in. Another big pro of marble is that every single piece is unique, and your floor will have its own look no matter how many of your neighbors decide to put in marble flooring (especially after they see yours).

Marble floor, like any other stone flooring, is very durable. If taken care of properly, it can last in your home just as long as you’d like it to. The only trick to marble is that it has a higher susceptibility to staining or discoloration, particularly from acidic substances.

To prevent your marble from becoming discolored and dingy, you should attend to your floors regularly with routine cleaning and regular professional cleaning to tackle deep surface stains.

Here at Kiwi Services, we are experts in handling all types of flooring, including marble.

Susceptibility to Staining: Common Causes of Stains on Marble Floors and How to Prevent Them

Marble floors, while elegant and durable, are highly susceptible to staining due to their porous nature. Common causes of stains on marble floors include spills from acidic substances such as wine, citrus juices, vinegar, and coffee. These substances can seep into the stone, leaving behind stubborn stains that are difficult to remove. Additionally, everyday items like oil, grease, and even water can cause discoloration if not cleaned promptly.

Prevention Tips:

  • Seal the Marble: Regularly applying a high-quality sealant creates a protective barrier on the marble surface, preventing liquids from penetrating and causing stains.
  • Prompt Cleanup: Immediately clean up any spills to minimize the risk of staining. Use a soft cloth or paper towel to blot the spill and then clean the area with a pH-neutral cleaner specifically designed for marble.
  • Use Coasters and Mats: Place coasters under glasses and mats under dishes to protect the marble from spills during meals and gatherings.
  • Avoid Acidic Cleaners: Never use acidic or abrasive cleaners on marble floors, as they can damage the surface and make it more prone to staining.
  • Regular Maintenance: Routine cleaning with a gentle, pH-neutral cleaner helps maintain the marble’s protective seal and overall appearance.
  • Dealing with Discoloration: How to Handle Discoloration from Acidic Substances and Everyday Wear

Discoloration on marble floors can occur from various sources, including acidic substances, foot traffic, and everyday wear. Acidic spills can etch the marble, leaving dull spots or light-colored stains, while continuous foot traffic can cause the surface to appear dull and worn over time.

Handling Discoloration:

  • Professional Cleaning: For severe discoloration, it’s best to seek professional cleaning services. Professionals use specialized equipment and cleaning solutions to remove deep-set stains and restore the marble’s natural color.
  • Polishing: Polishing can help restore the shine and color of your marble floors. This process involves buffing the surface with fine abrasives to remove dull spots and bring back the marble’s luster.
  • Honing: Honing is vital for addressing discoloration in marble, especially if the surface has become etched or scratched. This method uses abrasive materials to smooth the marble surface, effectively removing superficial scratches and uneven textures contributing to discoloration. It provides a more matte finish, which can be a precursor to polishing if a glossier surface is desired.
  • Poultice Application: For localized stains, a poultice can be applied to draw out the stain from the marble. A poultice is a paste made from a liquid cleaner or chemical mixed with a white absorbent material that is placed over the stain and left to work over a period of time.
  • Regular Sealing: Regularly sealing the marble can help prevent future discoloration and maintain its appearance. The sealant acts as a protective layer, reducing the likelihood of stains penetrating the stone.
  • DIY Remedies: For minor discoloration, a mixture of baking soda and water can sometimes be used to gently scrub the affected area. However, always test a small, inconspicuous area first to ensure it doesn’t damage the marble.

By understanding these common issues and how to address them, you can keep your marble floors looking beautiful and well-maintained for years to come. Regular maintenance and prompt attention to spills are key to preserving the elegance of your marble flooring.
