    Stone Staircase Maintenance

    If your home already has a marble staircase then you are able to enjoy a slice of luxury every day.

Careful treatment of any stone is always advised and with a few simple tips, you can enjoy your marble staircase for years to come.

    How to maintain a Marble Staircase

    Cleaning your marble staircase

    We would recommend cleaning your staircase once a week to ensure it stays sparkling, however potentially more if you have lots of people and pets in your home. Begin by adding a mild detergent to hot water in a bucket and mix. Avoid any harsh chemicals and bleach as these can damage your marble. Use a clean mop in circular motions to clean the floor, paying careful attention to hard to reach areas on the stairs. Once washed, go over the areas with cool, clear water. Dry your stairs with a soft dry cloth to avoid any discolouration of the marble. Part of your marble maintenance involves sealing the stone to prevent any damage, and this is particularly important on a staircase which will be regularly used. We would recommend sealing your marble every 3-6 months to protect the colour and durability of the stone.
