Do Your Marble or Stone Need Cleaning?
Marble and stone floor tiles need professional cleaning occasionally. The fine pores in the surface of the stone trap the dirt and bacteria. They therefore require strong cleaners, abrasives and scrubbing machines to remove the in ground grime. Tile grout is also an area of your floors that collect dirt over time. Dirty grout can degrade the look of any stone floor.
3 Types of Cleaning Methods for Stone
As there is such a large variety of stone materials in the market place each stone surface may present a unique cleaning issue. As a result we require a large number of products to solve these cleaning issues.
When cleaning tile floors there are 3 main methods that we can use to achieve the best result possible. These are chemical, abrasion, and heat cleaning. These 3 cleaning processes are often used in conjunction to produce a better result.
Chemical Cleaning is used to clean stone tiles to remove many different types of materials, Strong cleaning detergents are used to dissolve heave oils and grease build up in tiles and grout. Acids can also be used on some acid resistant stones such as sandstone to remove calcium based materials from the surface. These are the 2 main types of chemical cleaners used but there are many more depending on the stains and material we are working on.
Abrasive cleaning is often used in conjunction with chemical cleaning to remove surface and ingrained dirt and stains. There are different degrees of abrasive cleaning which range from using simple abrasive cleaners to using abrasive pads and machines to grind the surface of the stone.
This is used mainly to remove heavy grease and oil buildup. This is often used in conjunction with chemical cleaning to remove older stains. Often used in car parks and other outdoor areas.
