    Natural Stone Care Made Easy

    Stone surfaces are in high demand these days not just for their durability, but for their beauty as well.  With such unique and beautiful counter tops, floors, and outdoor surfaces, it’s essential to use cleaners made especially for those surfaces.  Grocery store cleaning products seem inexpensive, but they are mostly acidic and can cause damage to your natural stone surfaces.  Tile and grout needs special care as well.

     

    If you have chosen marble, granite, or travertine for your home or business, acidic cleaners can cause a variety of problems for the stone and the tile and grout.  Did you know that acid is used to remove excess grout from brick and tile? So, why use an acidic cleaner when it actually is damaging your surface?

     

    Acidic cleaners also cause dullness because the acids dissolve calcium carbonate which is the chemical the grout is made of. Acids also cause fading of color and brightness to the surfaces. The only solution is using an acid-free cleaner, and MARBLELIFE® cleaners are all acid free. We take great care to make safe, non-toxic cleaners that enhance your natural stone surfaces. Our cleaners will bring your stone back to life. Our products are also affordable.

     

    Our products were developed over many years by experts in stone care. A lot of research goes into each product. We use safe solvents and surfactants that clean, degrease, and shine. Our products are used in commercial buildings, hotels, and other businesses as well as in residences.  Once you discover the effectiveness of our products, you’ll never use a store-bought product again.

     

    Remember, MARBLELIFE® doesn’t just sell you the products. We are here for you long after the sale to keep your natural stone surfaces looking brand new.  You have our guarantee!

    Keeping Wood And Imitation Wood Shiny And Dust-Free

    MARBLELIFE® has a product to clean every surface. Whether it’s wood, stainless steel, marble, terrazzo, travertine, etc., you name it. MARBLELIFE® has a cleaner.

     

    Our certified, trained stone craftsman will clean your many surfaces, so we make sure they do it right. Our reputation depends on their expertise.

     

    Do you have wood flooring and you’re not sure how to care for it? Do you wonder if water should not be used, but only wax or polish? Our trained technicians can help.

     

    MARBLELIFE® craftsmen are known for their superior cleaning abilities and their knowledge of all household surfaces. But they also know how to care for wood flooring, cabinets, and furniture.

     

    Wood brings many things to mind. There is solid natural wood, engineered wood, laminate, and imitation wood. Imitation wood is 100% man-made. It is a material made to look like wood and to have the texture of wood. Wood veneer is used on the surface that is made of vinyl, paper or plastic. It can look exactly like wood.

     

    Engineered wood is made of several layers of wood similar to plywood. The top layer is usually a quality finished wood veneer.

     

    Laminate is a synthetic material. It looks like wood and is glued to fiber board.

     

    Last but not least, solid wood is one piece of real wood cut to size.

     

    All of these woods have a top-coat finish that is glossy, semi-gloss, satin or matte finish. Only the top coat is cleaned, polished, waxed, or buffed. Using oil soaps, waxes, and other cleaners can dull over time. Dust and dirt are trapped causing the dullness. MARBLELIFE® has a cleaner that will eliminate the dull coating from these surfaces and eliminate dust and debris for a longer lasting clean. Try MARBLELIFE’s Wood and Laminate Cleaner today!

    Meet MARBLELIFE’s InterCare Cleaner

    Most big-box stores carry cleaners for just about everything. But, do you want to pick and choose a cleaner that’s not right for your surface?  Do you dislike having numerous cleaners taking up space under the kitchen sink? Sometimes a cleaner is used once and then just sits there.  It’s always hard to choose which product is right for you, and MARBLELIFE® has the solution for all of the many surfaces in your home.

     

    Many  MARBLELIFE® cleaners can be used for multiple surfaces. One such product is MARBLELIFE® InterCare Cleaner. It is acid-free and won’t cause damage to any surface you use it on. It won’t discolor, scratch or harm the surfaces you use it on.  It easily removes oils and other residues from surfaces. It doesn’t just make the surface “appear” clean.

    MARBLELIFE® InterCare cleaner is a multi-use cleaner. You can use it on your natural stone surfaces and on stainless steel.  It is safe to be used around children and pets, and it will not harm other surfaces.  You can even use it on wood surfaces.

    How To Clean Your Stainless Steel

    Cleaning all of the diverse surfaces in your home properly can be confusing and time consuming. However, when you have products that can get the job done and be used for more than one purpose, you’ll likely save time, money, and a ton of stress. With MARBLELIFE stone care products, you can clean your beautiful stone surfaces and even clean other surfaces such as wood, furniture, and even stainless steel.

     

    Cleaning Your Stainless Is Painless With MARBLELIFE 

    If you’re already a subscriber to MARBLELIFE cleaning products, then you’ll be happy to find out that you can use our InterCare cleaner to clean your stainless steel surfaces. InterCare cleaner is already acid-free, which would prevent any damages or discoloring, plus InterCare is made to actually clean surface oils and residues—not just make it look clean. This is the type of cleaner you want for oil, grease, and germ build-up rather than a generic, acidic cleaner that leaves a film of surface oil.

     

    If you happen to have outdoor stainless steel surfaces, this product still is able to get the job done. MARBLELIFE’s InterCare cleaner has tackled the hardest jobs on rusted metal as a result of rain, humidity, sea salt, and snow salt exposure.

     

    Streak-Free Shines With MARBLELIFE

    One concern with stainless steel is that there are streaks left after the cleaning process. You can eliminate any of these for a perfect shine with MARBLELIFE’s Soap Scum Remover to remove stains and streaks. This product is engineered with an abrasive designed to be softer than the metal but harder than the residue creating the streak. The result is it powers through the streak and breaks down on contact with the metal selectively removing the streak and leaving behind a pristine clean surface.

    MARBLELIFE Can Clean More Than Stone?

    MARBLELIFE craftsmen and products are known for their superior cleaning abilities when it comes to natural stone. But, did you know that MARBLELIFE also has some great tricks for wood flooring, cabinets, and furniture care? We’re going to let you in on those secrets, now!

     

    Different Types Of Wood

    The term “wood” is an all encompassing term that refers to materials such as solid wood, engineered wood, laminate, and imitation wood.

     

    • Solid wood is one piece of real wood cut to size.
    • Engineered wood consists of several layers of wood like in plywood with the top layer being the quality finished wood.
    • Laminate is a synthetic material that looks like wood glued on top of a fiber board type of material.
    • Imitation would be a completely man made material made to resemble the look and possibly texture of wood. The wood veneer surface is often a printed vinyl, paper or plastic.

     

    In each case, however the vast majority of these materials have a top coat finish on them that provides the gloss, semi-gloss, satin or matte finish we have selected or prefer in our piece. These surface treatments are what we are actually interacting with when we are cleaning.

     

    The Problem With Common Cleaning Methods

    The use of polishes and oil soaps only leave a residue on the surface of the synthetic coating. In turn, they are applying an oil. Oils may provide a glossy appearance initially, but their very nature is such that they also attract dirt which sticks to this moist sticky surface. The oils also tend to evaporate over time, which is why you find yourself constantly having to re-apply.

     

    Thus, the act of applying these ineffective materials has us removing trapped surface dust, but later re-apply the dust trap once again. An effective cleaner will eliminate the surface oils from these surfaces, halting the trapping of dust and debris for a longer lasting clean.

     

    The Alternative You Need

    If you have MARBLELIFE’s InterCare Cleaner, then you can use this product to help you remove surface oils as it doesn’t leave residues behind. Or you can get a hold of the cleaner made specifically for optimal cleaning of your wood surfaces, MARBLELIFE’s Wood & Laminate Cleaner. This cleaner makes wood easy to clean and leaves gloss that’s non-damaging for a beautiful shine. Its purpose is to remove oil, grease and dirt, without depositing any artificial waxes, for a true, healthy clean.

     

    With the right cleaners, you’ll find that you’re cleaning less and actually improving your wood surfaces, rather than witnessing a “fake clean” that unfortunately makes the situation worse. Simply turn to MARBLELIFE for all of your surface needs! Our team of professionals can personally help you improve your residential or commercial surfaces or we can provide you with the proper materials to do it yourself.

    The Problem With Acid Cleaners

    You might be using acidic cleaners to disinfect your stone surfaces, because it seems to be a hard clean that necessitates chemical power. However, if you’ve kept up with MARBLELIFE stone care tips, then you’ve repeatedly heard that acidic cleaners should not be used to maintain your stone surfaces. If you hadn’t already known this fact, then we’re going to break down exactly how acidic cleaners are your worst enemy when it comes to stone conservation.

     

    The Big Issue

    If you have stone surfaces, such as marble, granite, or travertine, acid can cause a variety of problems. This is especially true if you have tile and grout. Despite the type of natural stone, acidic cleaners can:

     

    1. Attack many sealers used to seal the grout. Acids shift the pH to the point that the sealer will start the process of breaking down.
    2. Acids can leach out the dyes used to color the grout. In fact, often when you notice a clean lightening it is due to loss of color, not lack of dirt.
    3. Acids are used to clean excess grout from the top of brick and tile. If masonry acids are used in this matter, than the use of acids can indeed damage the grout.
    4. If you are talking about grout around a marble, travertine or terrazzo floor then the very act of cleaning will dull your floor, as acids dissolve calcium carbonate, the very chemical from which these materials are made.

     

    Today’s Alternatives

    So you’re probably concerned and thinking, “What am I going to do now?” It seems that every cleaner solution has some percentage of acid presence. But, that’s actually not true. The experts at MARBLELIFE have developed a whole line of cleaners that are acid-free, easy to use, and affordable!

     

    These products were developed by the experts in stone care with years of research and field experience. The line of cleaners is based on safe solvents and surfactants that effectively clean, degrease, and shine. These are the same products that the experts use when they make a commercial or residential call!

     

    No longer bring your stone to its own death with generic acidic cleaners, or bleach and vinegar concoctions. The line was made in mind for you to become the expert in stone care. Plus, we provide plenty of tips, tricks, and tutorials to help you get the most out of our products.

     

    So, if you’ve been working with acidic cleaners and wish to reverse that damage, try investing in MARBLELIFE products. You won’t regret it!

    How And Why You Should Seal Your Granite Counters

    Granite countertops can add some major beauty points to any home. That’s why you want to ensure you’re taking good care of these surfaces to help them reach their utmost potential. You’re probably cleaning and disinfecting your granite, but are you taking further steps to protect the color, clean, and shine? Maybe yes, maybe no. Whether or not you are taking these steps, you can benefit from learning about the granite sealing process and how it can help your granite surfaces.

     

    Cleaning Precautions  

    One thing all people who take care of granite should know is that acidic cleaners are your worst enemy. If you’re already cleaning/disinfecting your surface with acidic cleaners, then before making any moves, switch to a non-acidic substitute. Sealing your granite won’t help any if you’re going to use a counterproductive cleaner. Moreover, you want to look for a cleaner that travels into the pores of the granite and will lift out the oils trapped inside without leaving a residue. We suggest MARBLELIFE’s Granite & Quartz Cleaner.

     

    Why Seal Your Granite? 

    Sealing your granite is an essential part of the granite maintenance process. Just like with any stone surface, there are small pores in which bacteria, liquids, and dirt can seep into, damaging your surface slowly from the inside. Sealing your countertops will help keep those foreign materials out. Your granite will be far less susceptible to bacteria or stains from red wine, coffee, juice, etc.

     

    If your granite is more porous or light in color, it’s imperative that you make sure the surface is sealed soon as possible, as the stains can be very hard to extract without professional help.

     

    How To Seal Your Granite 

    Unless you’re 100 percent sure that the granite has been sealed properly within the last year, you should seal your granite. It’s not expensive, it’s easy, and it could save you from a much more time consuming and expensive issue if an unexpected liquid drop occurs.

     

    Apply a granite sealer at least once a year or twice for areas that receive a lot of traction. No matter how quality your sealer may be, the coating is bound to slowly deteriorate as your cleaner emulsifies and disinfects.

     

    Sealing your granite should be simple and straightforward. Don’t purchase anything too complicated. MARBLELIFE products are made by the professionals who are experts in stone care and we provide a simple micro-mist spray that makes for a quick and effective seal. With MARBLELIFE’s Granite Sealer, just spray the counter evenly, then allow to sit for a few minutes. Before the sealer dries, buff off the excess and you’re done!

     

    Conclusion 

    To summarize, be sure to take effective care of your granite countertops with acid-free products. Any stone surface needs proper maintenance to be sure they stay beautiful and compliment your home. Furthermore, for the counters to remain in their best condition, seal them and help them fight off foreign elements.

     

    MARBLELIFE’s team of experts can also help you if you have any further questions or need assistance with projects big and small.

    How To Clean & Seal Your Grout

    Do you have tile floors or countertops? If so, then you know how they can really bring out the look in your home or can do the opposite. The grout between your tiles collects dirt and can stain, deteriorating your surface look overall. There are multiple methods that people employ to upkeep these surfaces, but only one is the best option and backed by the professionals.

     

    Get The Right Cleaner

    The right materials often determine the success of the job. The same concept applies for your tile and grout! Many will use a generic tile and grout cleaner that has acidic components. Acid can damage the color and durability of your grout, plus they don’t do a very great job. So, first you want to get your hands on a quality cleaner.

     

    We suggest MARBLELIFE’s Tile & Grout Cleaner and MaxOut Grout Cleaner. They both are acid-free, easy to use, and have shown consistent success over time.

     

    Clean Your Grout 

    Cleaning your grout is simple as long as you have the right materials. With MaxOut cleaner, all you have to do is apply the cleaner to the grout and brush with a hard bristle (toothbrush, wallpaper brush, long handle floor brush). As you brush the suds will get dirtier, that means it’s doing its job by getting the dirt out!

     

    Once you’ve brushed a good amount of dirt out, wipe away the remaining suds with a clean towel. After wiping away the remains, spray Tile & Grout Cleaner to remove any remaining MaxOut.

     

    Pro tip: for large areas, apply MaxOut and use the edge of a long handle floor brush. You won’t have to be on your knees and it’s faster. You shouldn’t push hard, since you just want the tips of the bristles. After, mop off the suds and apply Tile & Grout Cleaner.

     

     

    Sealing Your Grout

    If you want to seal your grout so that the pores are more closed and less prone to staining and hoarding dirt, then first clean your grout as previously directed. Afterwards, spray Tile & Grout cleaner in the grout a second time and brush. Your pores will be nice and open, prepped for the sealing.

     

    If you use MARBLELIFE’s Grout Sealer, all you’ll have to do is apply and let it soak for a couple minutes. Then, simply wipe off any sealer that has made it’s way onto the tile. That’s it! The sealer should have soaked into the grout pores and will leave you with cleaner surfaces for a longer time period.

    If you want to clean and seal your grout properly, make sure you employ this method. It’s the easiest and most successful technique that you can apply. MARBLELIFE’s professionals have years of experience and research, so they want you to be able to enjoy a superior clean at an affordable price.

    Cleaning Your Hardwood Floors

    If wood flooring, cabinets, furniture, or any type of surface lies in the heart of your home, then you probably have had some questions regarding the proper methods of maintenance. But, no matter what type of wood is present in your home, there is one technique that you can employ to ensure there are no stains, marks, discoloring, or other damages. We’re here to let you in on this cleaning secret that you won’t want to miss.

     

    Prolonging Your Wood’s Look

    Wood has the ability to make any part of your home look amazing! Whether it has a gloss, semi-gloss, satin, or matte finish, preserving that look all has to do with how you maintain it.

     

    The surface finishing is what you’re actually interacting with when you’re cleaning. It’s not so much the wood, so much as it is the coating. These coatings typically consist of a urethane, acrylic, enamel or other man made element. So, you’ll have to know how to clean these coatings in order to maintain the look and prevent surfaces from damaging.

     

    Common Mistakes

    When attempting to bring out the best look in wood surfaces, many people make mistakes. They might not even notice, however, over time, damage and the appearance will show when it’s too late.

     

    When cleaning, people will often use polishes and oil soaps. This only leaves a residue on the surface of the synthetic coating. Essentially, they are applying an oil, which provides an initial glossy look, but actually attracts dirt that sticks to a moist, sticky surface. The oil eventually evaporates and you have to constantly reapply. Furthermore, the surface is certainly not clean. Wipe the dust away from the surface, only to reapply the dust trapper is counterproductive.

     

    An Effective Method

    Instead of maintaining a cyclical issue of wood maintenance, you can choose to obtain an effective cleaner, which removes surface oils. Removing surface oils will put an end to the dust and dirt trap for a proper clean.

     

    Choose a product that actually picks up surface oils without leaving residue or damage. These products must be free of acidic elements, depositing waxes, or oils. You don’t just want something to look clean, you want it to be clean.

     

    One product that you should consider employing is MARBLELIFE’s InterCare Cleaner. Sure, it may have been originally designed for stone and marble surfaces, however, MARBLELIFE quickly noticed a struggle with wood, furniture, and cabinets. Thus, MARBLELIFE’s InterCare Cleaner is a great option for those looking for an all-around cleaner that actually works. It dusts, cleans, and shines all at the same time. And it’s made by the professionals who have years of experience working on the ground-floor.

     

    However, no matter if you choose MARBLELIFE or not, be aware of the way you should be cleaning your wood. Actually make sure your surfaces are clean, and don’t just look clean.

    5 Ways That You Could Be Cleaning More Efficiently

    It seems like the cleaning never stops when it comes to your home. The moment you finish, it’s as if dirt and germs know and pile up, leaving you cleaning constantly. But how much you clean and how much time you spend on cleaning, might not directly correlate with how clean your home is. There are a few ways that you could make sure you employ the “quality versus quantity” method and avoid cleaning so much to maximize your time.

     

    Sanitize Your Sponges 

    You might have a couple of sponges lying around the house for all your cleaning needs. But, have you ever wondered how clean they actually are? Doesn’t it just seem like they’re harboring all the germs that you removed from your surfaces? Well, you can ensure they’re sanitized and ready to go for the next cleaning job. Quickly throw your sponges in the microwaves for a couple minutes and the bacteria will deteriorate away. No more throwing away sponges at half their lifespan.

     

    Clean Those Toys

    If your kids have a ton of toys lying around the house, it can certainly be an intimidating job to clean each individual item. But you want to make sure they’re healthy and not exposed to germs! What are you going to do? The answer is simple: use a laundry bag. You can clean much more than clothes in your washer. Put the toys in a laundry bag, add some detergent, and you’re ready to go! You might also try this concept with the dishwasher!

     

    Attack Pet Hair 

    If you have a pet that sheds on your carpet, then you can use this easy method to get that annoying hair off your clean carpet. If you have a squeegee lying around, you can use it to quickly collect dirty hair. It’s amazingly simple.

     

    Use damp rubber gloves to remove pet hair from furniture! It’ll act like a super magnet.

     

    Work Room By Room

    When we clean we can often get sidetracked by the size of the job. We’re in one room and then suddenly we find ourselves in another tending to a separate job. In order to have the best outcome and an overall cleaner household, work room to room. This way you are organized and thoroughly clean. You’ll avoid having to constantly clean if you do a great job the first time!

     

    Clean Your Tiles With MARBLELIFE

    MARBLELIFE cleaners will ensure that your stone floors or surfaces are actually clean. That means that there are no stains, scratches, leftover bacteria, or discoloring. However, there will be plenty of shine, sanitization, and beauty! MARBLELIFE products are easy to use, minimize your time, and keep your surfaces clean, durable, and lovely for much longer.
