Marble floors has been around for centuries. In ancient Rome marble was used for sculptures as well. Marble is a a byproduct of limestone and is created when limestone endures intense pressure for long periods of time. Marble floor maintenance, much like tile floor maintenance is relatively easy if attended to frequently. Simply using a cotton string mop and warm water, will go a long way in helping maintain your marble floors. Since marble by nature is a porous, frequent sweeping and mopping will help keep it clean. However, there are times when professional experience is needed to restore your marble floor’s luster. Corlew and Perry can assist you with your marble floor maintenance!!
