Preventive Maintenance A polished marble floors scratch very easily compared with a harder stone like granite . Sand that has a hardness rating of about 7 , repaired marble if it is on the marble floor where there is a lot of foot traffic , since most marble flooring has a hardness rating of about 3. This means that the crystals are damaged and the surface has lost its reflectivity and shine. So it’s good to have entrance mats as a preventive measure to stop the gravel and sand already at the door Regular maintenance Each stone requires a good maintenance schedule in order to preserve it and to delay restoration as long as possible . Daily maintenance will consist of dry and damp mopping, this should be done with a good stone soap and sometimes with just water. It is important that soap rests do not build up on the surface of the stone.

Acid -based chemicals used for domestic purposes can damage the surface of marble and other calcite stones on contact. Similar damage may occur from acidic foods and drinks. Professional regular maintenance will be required to maintain a good luster of the stone. This will mean that
the marble floor has crystallized.
