Friday''s Ask the Experts question from a cleaning professional on the International Custodial Advisors Network (ICAN) "Ask the Experts" page: We have marble in the lobby and the guy doing the lobby for the last eight months has been spraying glass cleaner on the tile and burnishing it. Now it really looks bad.
Can the floor be restored, without replacing all the tile?
I''d try the diamond impregnated floor pads from 3M, HTC Floor Systems Ltd. or VIC International Corporation. They are easy to use, require no chemicals and produce and maintain an nice shine on most stone floors.
From now on, use a neutral detergent for daily cleaning and keep the glass cleaner on the glass — where it belongs.
