Sealers should only be applied to clean interior marble. Always follow manufacturer's directions for proper application. Terrazzo sealers are excellent for this purpose. So are silicone based stone sealers.
In all cases sealers should be made of a clear, hard finish type suitable for traffic surfaces and definitely non-yellowing. Do not use soft finish waxes, paste wax or resins. These coatings can collect dirt and grit. Some acrylic-base liquid floor waxes can be used in place of permanent sealers, but may give limited life.
