For a non polished marble stone  a marble cleaning will be the perfect one step cleaning to get the stone back to beautiful.

Marble is natural stone that is sensitive to acid based cleaners, we have seen many cases where acid has been used to clean the grout…..and the results: A clean grout line with a damaged marble stone due to etching.

Once the stone is damaged it will require some restoration work that will include diamond restoration and marble polishing.

Marble comes in different colors from the popular white carrera marble, black pearl marble, brown emperador marble, cream rose marble  to the more exotic amazon green and  brazilian blue, each stone provides a different and unique challenge in cleaning.

Houston Travertine Cleaning

When looking to get travertine cleaning in Houston done, know your stone.  First off, travertine is a form of limestone, related to marble.  As such, acidic substances should be avoided when cleaning travertine as it can start to ecth the stone. It isn’t just cleaners that can potentially damage travertine, but everyday substances such as orange juice, wine, or coffee may also adversely affect your stone.   Blot up these spills immediately, with that said, or you run the risk of a dulled finish and crumbled grout later on.

What to Use for Houston Travertine Cleaning

For everyday travertine cleaning, use hot water and a stone cleaner that’s especially formulated for travertine if at all possible, or a pH neutral soap such as dish washing detergent.  Again, acidic compounds can etch your stone as well as erode your grout, and while this damage won’t show immediately, it will in time making cleaning your travertine a lot more difficult. If you are not sure if the cleaner you’ve purchased can damage your tile, or how much cleaning is too much, when in doubt ask! Get on the phone to a company that does travertine cleaning in Houston.

What to Avoid When Doing Travertine Cleaning in Houston

Don’t overuse soap however, as it can dull the surface.  Dust mop travertine twice a week.  Vacuuming should be done with extreme caution as the vacuum may have sharp edges that can scratch the floor. Runners and area rugs can be used on floors to protect them from dust and debris. Avoid generic, store-bought cleaning products of any kind, and take household hints you may find online regarding vinegar, lemon, orange, or ammonia with a grain of salt. NEVER use abrasive cleaners or store bought bathroom cleaners in your Houston travertine cleaning   project . Make sure to rinse all leftover cleaner off of your tile and grout.  You do not want residue to build up, nor do you want any adverse chemical reactions to spoil the appearance of your travertine, or even damage it beyond repair.

Travertine cleaning in Houston is just like cleaning any other high quality stone.  Know what you can and can’t do to clean it, and know how to avoid the pitfalls that go with it.  Above all else know what you can do yourself, and what you are going to need professional assistance with.
