Marble tiles add a touch of luxury to home

A popular choice among homeowners and decorators, marble tiles add a touch of luxury to home bathrooms and spas.

The sophisticated stone surface offers several benefits but how to keep this natural stone product looking its best, especially in wet, hard-working spaces such as bathrooms?

Here, the team from CTM explains how to properly clean and maintain marble tiles in your bathroom for years of high-shine beauty.

  1. Dust and sweep regularly
    “As you do your routine bathroom cleaning, it’s essential that you first remove any dust, dirt or debris from the tile surfaces using a broom, cloth or vacuum cleaner to prevent dirt and debris from scratching your marble tiles. Use a soft-bristled broom or a microfibre dust mop to gently remove loose particles. Avoid using rough bristles or abrasive materials that can scratch the marble.”
  2. Use a gentle cleaning solution
    “Marble is a delicate and porous material that can easily be damaged by harsh chemicals, so with bathroom marble tile cleaning, it’s essential to use pH-neutral cleaners specifically designed for marble along with a soft microfibre cloth or mop.”
  3. Mop with warm water
    “Always clean your marble tiles with warm water as extreme temperatures can damage the marble. Avoid excessive moisture on marble surfaces too, as standing water can seep into the marble and cause staining. So make sure you thoroughly dry your tile after mopping to prevent water spots.”
  4. Clean stains immediately
    “If you notice a stain on your marble tiles it’s essential to address it promptly to prevent permanent discolouration. Blot the stain with a soft cloth or paper towel to absorb any excess liquid and use a gentle daily cleaner designed for marble tiles to remove the stains.”
  5. Have your marble tiles sealed regularly
    “Marble is naturally porous and can absorb liquids if left unsealed, so to protect your marble tiles from stains and moisture damage, it’s crucial to regularly seal the surface. The sealer helps to create a protective barrier, preventing stains from penetrating the marble.”
