    never done marble floor cleaning ,been offered but reluctant as I've no experience with marble. So my question is ....should I look for a coarse in my area or go for it and blame the realtor who said it's easy to do

    Again, so often Marble needs more than just cleaning. You need to be able to confidentially explain that.

    Get trained so that you can restore marble when needed.

    Look for a class in your area. I can help with technical support after your training. It is nowhere close to you, but STONE PRO does great training and hands on experience. 3 day Boot Camp for $1000.00 in Anaheim, CA. Let me know if you are interested.

    Malcolm, it costs money, but I really urge you to take a class. You’ll get the money back in a job or two and you’ll avoid walking yourself into a trap.

    For simple cleaning, a nuetral cleaner and white pad. The problem is that customers think that the shine is still there under the grime. Please, invest in a class.

    The better thing is to have a proper knowledge first. So, look for some reliable source of information and then start taking clients in this area of service.
