|The bathroom paving marble is more beautiful, but if it is not well noticed, it is easy to cause yellowing due to the long-term wetness of the stone. So what should we do when we infiltrate the stained marble? Share several solutions and maintenance options here.
It is recommended to use stone-specific products, such as strong concentrated cleaning agents, with a pH of about 10.5. These products can decompose organic contamination on the stone surface and remove surface-type protective agents. If necessary, the cleaning agent can be mixed with the decontamination powder to extend the reaction time of the compound and adsorb the stain into the paste. Before using the compound, test small areas that are not conspicuous, such as corners, and make sure that the surface of the stone is not covered with dark black marks. Clearing the slight scratches is relatively easy, and there are many polishing powders on the market. However, when using polishing powder, it is necessary to use a polishing machine or a single wiper.
It is recommended to use a liquid drug, preferably a two-component enzyme cleaner that penetrates into the stone bottom layer and filters dirt and dirt onto the surface. Enzymes are especially effective against plant stains. Such cleaners are available from high quality stone cleaner product distributors.
If the effect of using this method is still not obvious, it is recommended to mix the solution of the enzyme cleaning agent with the decontamination powder until a viscous ointment similar to peanut butter is formed. Apply the mixed ointment to the contaminated area, cover it with plastic film, and seal it with tape. The reaction time was maintained for 24 to 72 hours, and then the dried ointment was scraped off with a small bamboo board. Repeat if necessary. Once the contamination has been removed, it is recommended to use a permeable protective agent to protect the stone from future contamination.
If the stained marble surface has scratches at the same time, it needs to be polished. The choice of abrasive powder needs to be determined by the construction party, which may be brick, cinder, sandpaper or silicon carbide. The process can be complicated, so it is advisable to have it handled by a professional. It should be clear that for some 305 X 305 X 10mm plates, the damage from high heels may also penetrate deep into the stone and may be difficult or almost impossible to scratch. In this case, it is best to seek the assistance of an expert.
Regarding the stains on the stone around the tub and on the edge of the window sill, the problem should be that the marble has never been protected or improperly maintained. Since the mild detergent is not effective, we recommend using a neutral detergent to mix the powder into a viscous mixture of the mud, apply the paste to the surface of the stone, and then rub it with a nylon pad. The powder acts like an abrasive in it to help remove stubborn stains from the surface. If this method does not work, it is recommended to use an alkaline cleaner mixed with the clay powder to form a strong detergent solution. The remaining operation steps are as described above.
When it comes to scratches on the ground, it is recommended that professionals come to the site to see and re-polishing the marble surface. Since re-polishing and sanding usually requires the use of liquid or powder products, or diamond polishing pads, it is best for professionals to operate them. You can inquire with local stone producers or distributors, and ask them to recommend more well-known stone care products and handle them professionally.
