Mouldy bathroom with marble tiles

We have just moved to a house with marble tiles in the bathroom. They are quickly getting mould in the grout despite me cleaning them weekly. What products could I use to eliminate the mould which would be safe on marble?

Thanks!

Hi – I did search for: marble – as my concern is if the recommended mould treatments are safe on marble? Thanks ☺️

Marble is very inert and caustic soda only reacts with fats and oils so the oven cleaner will be very safe.

As always, spot test if you have any doubts.

Marble is absolutely NOT inert, it is highly reactive to acids and to strong alkalis such as caustic soda (pH 14). In fact, any product over pH10 should be avoided.

What you can use are marble pastes that are not dissimilar to Jiff. They do require a bit of work, either by hand or with a car polisher, but will get a good result.

Crosby Tiles in Osborne Park have a product by Aquaseal that will do the trick.

Incorrect. Marble is extremely inert, even to strong acids. Sugar soap is all you need to clean it. But sealing it is a good idea. Normal ceramic tiles don’t require sealing, but I’m not sure about marble

Dr Chemical

Use sugar soap. Spray it on liberally and then the mould will wipe away easily. If the grout between the tiles is lower than the tiles you may need to use a brush, but it will come away easily
