How to Easily Clean Marble Counters and Small Marble Areas

Easy Cleaning Techniques for Marble Counter Tops 

Marble is a stone that is always in need of cleaning and maintenance.  When at it's best, marble shines more than any other stone, hence its popularity.  However, when marble loses its shine it can look dull and be unimpressive.  It's important to stay up to date with the latest techniques used to clean marble to enable it to shine as much as possible.  Classic Marble Restoration is a South Florida marble restoration company that restores all types of stones.  A full list of stones they restore can be found here.

To start, make sure you test a piece of the marble.  While most marbles will have a positive reaction to the cleaning, some methods may not work for your specific marble.

Wipe the marble clean.  Best use would be a hand broom or light cloth.
Next, use warm water and a fresh cloth and gently clean.
Using harsh cleaning products such as turpentine, paint thinners and vinegar may not always have a positive reaction on your marble.  As we mentioned above, test a small area to ensure you do no damage to your marble.

The above steps are great for polishing marble counters in small kitchens and baths, but for larger jobs, it may require specific equipment and products.  For these larger jobs, it's always a good idea to contact your local marble restoration company.
