Dust mop interior floors frequently use a non-treated dry dust mop. Dirt and grit do the most damage to natural stone surfaces due to their abrasiveness. Mats or area rugs inside and outside an entrance will help to minimize the sand, dirt and grit that will scratch your stone floors. Be sure that the underside of the mat or rug is a non-slip surface.
Damp mop floors with clean water or pH Neutral stone cleaner. Never use acids (Such as vinegar or lemon juice) or any type of chemical cleaners on natural stone tile.
Do not use vacuum cleaners that are worn. The metal or plastic attachments or the wheels may scratch the surface.
Removing stains from marble and stone can prove difficult. Spills should be cleaned up as soon as possible. Blot spills with a paper towel or rag. At this stage, it is important to only blot; wiping a spill may spread it over a larger area, making a larger mess. Use only cold water and stone soap or a neutral cleaner. Rinse the area several times. If a stain is still present, a chemical poultice may have to be applied. Avoid using chemicals of any kind until you know which chemical cleaner to use. Certain chemicals will react with the spilled material, and could make the stain permanent.
It may be necessary over time to reseal your floor depending on the quantity of traffic and maintenance procedures in your home.
