Your marble floor questions answered

Why should I choose marble floors for my home?

Marble flooring provides an elegant look to any room of the home, and is also durable, waterproof and fireproof.

Are there any special considerations I should know about before having a marble floor?

You should know that marble floors require resealing on a regular basis, and can be damaged by acidic cleaners.

Do marble floors require any sort of special maintenance once they're installed?

Normal cleaning of marble floors involves washing the tiles with water and a PH neutral cleaner. Acidic cleaners can damage the tiles or remove any sealing that has been placed on them.

Can I replace individual marble tiles if they become damaged?

Of course. Replacing individual tiles is easy as long as you have some extras lying around. It is no different than replacing a single tile of any other type. Simply remove the grout, pry up the broken tile, clean the area, adhere the new tile in place and add new grout.

When should marble floors be sealed?

If it is polished marble, you will stain it before placing it onto your floor. Etched marble on the other hand should be sealed just prior to grouting.
