    I was mopping my marble floor but it was not enough so I will now invest in some quality marble cleaners. I also have hardwood floors and pets at home. Removing pet hair and keeping the hardwood floors well maintained is also important. I do use the best pet hair vacuum and I make sure to vacuum my house daily because pet hair is a troublesome thing to get rid of when it comes to carpets and hardwood floors. I vacuum my marble floor also to keep it dust-free.

    Thank you. Marble is a beloved material for counters in kitchens and baths. What’s not loved is the difficulty in cleaning and caring for this elegant, veined stone. Marble is porous and can be damaged by spilling an acidic substance on it.

    This is a very informative article! For certain stains, which can’t be removed by soap and detergent, you should try out professional grade tile cleaners, like Roff Cera Clean. It’s even better if you use it once every few months to make sure your marble don’t look old and allows you to get rid of the oil, slime and grease that collects over the course of time, especially the sink and bathroom tiles.
