How To Clean And Maintain A Marble Table

After you have stains professionally removed from your marble dining room table, clean and maintain the marble with the following steps. Eliminating surface stains and wiping off the marble on a regular basis will prevent permanent damage and maintain the elegance of the table.

Materials

  • natural stone cleaner
  • sponge
  • bucket of warm water
  • ammonia
  • lint-free cloths
  • mild detergent
  • clear tablecloth

Remove Surface Stains

Remove surface stains from the marble as soon as you notice them. Apply a small amount of natural stone cleaner to a damp sponge and apply it to each stain. Move the sponge back and forth while using firm pressure to remove each of the stains. If any stains are difficult to remove, add a small amount of ammonia to the sponge to strengthen the cleaning solution. Rinse the sponge out with warm water and wipe the marble off to eliminate residue that was left behind by the stone cleaner or ammonia. Dry the table's surface off with a lint-free cloth.

Wipe The Table Off Regularly

Keep the table's surface shiny and dust-free by wiping it off on a regular basis. Add a small amount of mild detergent to a damp sponge. Apply the sponge to the table's surface while applying consistent pressure to it. Move the sponge back and forth to remove dust buildup and grime. Rinse the sponge off with warm water as it becomes dirty, and add more detergent to it as needed. Once the marble is clean, remove soapy residue from its surface with a damp sponge that has been dipped in plain water. Dry the marble off with a lint-free cloth.

Follow Some Additional Guidelines

Never use abrasive cleaning agents or tools when cleaning the table. These items can damage the marble and leave marks on its surface. Wipe up spills right away with a soft cloth. After the liquid has been removed, use a damp sponge to remove any residue from the marble. Dry the marble with a lint-free cloth.

If you are going to be using the table to serve a meal to a large group of people, consider placing a clear tablecloth over the marble. The tablecloth will prevent the table from being exposed to spills and will still allow your guests to enjoy the beauty of the marble. Following all of these guidelines will keep the marble in excellent shape so that you can continue to enjoy its beauty on a daily basis.
