Cleaning marble



The maintenance of marble is a special task because of the very nature of the stone. Although its appearance is solid, its physical and chemical properties make it relatively porous. Its carbonate crystals and limestone are sensitive to acids and alkalis and can therefore be altered by unsuitable detergents. While standard solutions can be applied for routine maintenance, exceptional soiling that may occur as a result of clumsiness must be treated with care. Your marble renovation and maintenance company provides expert service at a reasonable price. Marbre Marrakech's experienced craftsmen work with perfect knowledge and respect for the material.

Routine maintenance of marble

For the routine maintenance of your marble floor, or for that of your objects, your maintenance company will give you appropriate advice.

Depending on whether the marble to be maintained is located indoors in a busy area, outdoors or in a bathroom, the treatment will be different.

Some substances attack the marble in depth. If the marble is attacked in depth, if superficial scratches appear, the marble will have to be repolished and sanded. Many solutions are available on the internet. Some recommend sorrel salt powder for its oxalic acid. Others advise you to make your own paste from 1/3 baking soda and 2/3 pumice powder, also known as blanc de Meudon or blanc d'Espagne, then treat with black soap.
