What is the recommended maintenance program for marble flooring?

Q. Greetings, On commercial sites, such as a restaurant or main entrance lobby of a concert hall.
Initially it will be clean, but afterwards.
What is the recommended maintenance program and how often?
What product and steps are recommended.

A. Marble floor maintenance is pretty straight forward. Daily maintenace: dust mop frequently -- at least once and wet mop using a quality pH neutral cleaner. I recommend the Neutral Cleaner available at Stone Care Central. It works very well and is fast drying and streak free. Make sure to always follow the directions on any cleaners you use. The most common mistake maintenance people make is using too much product, thinking it will work better, only to realize they now have to rinse.

To keep the floors in great condition, you should retain the services of a qualified stone maintenance contractor to keep the floors polished. The frequency of service will depend on the type of marble and the traffic it is exposed to. Your stone maintenance contractor can help you determine appropriate frequency.
