marble cleaning/polishing

Q: I own a janitorial company. Can you walk me through a marble floor cleaning job of 1,100 sq.ft. using your products. I will purchase everything needed for the work from you.

A: There is no simple answer for this question. For routine cleaning of a marble floor, you will want to use a quality neutral cleaner designated safe for natural stone, such as MB-1, available at Stone Care Central.

However, your question did not specify the condition of the floor. Is it dull, scratched, etched? If so, cleaning is not the answer. Is it particularly dirty, stained or otherwise requiring more specialized maintenance?

As a cleaning professional, you will be faced with this all the time. One of the most common questions we get from cleaning companies goes something like this: "Help! We used the wrong product on our client’s marble floor and now there is serious damage!"

We strongly urge you to consider taking a valuable training seminar offered by The Stone and Tile School specifically for janitorial companies.
