Tips For Maintaining And Cleaning Marble Mosaic Tile Floors

Posted on: 12 June 2017

If you have recently installed a custom marble mosaic tile floor in your home's entry hall, then it is important you know how to clean and maintain it. With proper cleaning, your new marble mosaic floor will look as new as the day it was installed for many decades into the future. To this end, here are some time-tested tips for cleaning and maintaining residential custom marble mosaic tile floors:

Tip: Sweep and Dust the Marble Tile Floor Regularly

It is important to keep the dust and dirt cleaned off of the marble floor tiles. If there are dirt and dust sitting on top of the tiles, then they can become scratched as your family continually walks on the floor. In addition, the dust and dirt will get trapped in the tile's grout and over time will make it appear soiled. The easiest way to remove the bulk of the loose dust and dirt on your floor is to sweep and dust it regularly.

Tip: Mop Your Marble Mosaic Tile Floor with a Mild Detergent to Remove Grime

Even though you sweep your entry way floor regularly, it still needs to be mopped periodically to remove grime before it can build up on the floor. Since many floor cleaners contain acids that can damage your marble floor and it's grout, you should only mop with a mild detergent. The best detergent to use is a small amount of dish washing liquid mixed in a bucket of hot water. 

Mop the floor with the soapy water and then wash off any soap residue by mopping it again with clean water. 

If the grout is dirty, then you need to clean it with a specialized grout cleaning product that you can purchase at your local hardware or home improvement store.

Tip: Place Rugs Inside and Outside of Your Home's Front Door to Prevent Dirt from Entering into Your Home 

Finally, one of the absolute best ways to keep your new entry hall's custom marble mosaic tile floor clean is to place a rug on the outside and inside of your home's front door. The rug will pick up a lot of the dust and dirt before it has a chance to drop off on your new floor. Make sure that each time you clean your floor, you take the rugs out and shake them and beat them with a broom to remove any grime.
