Natural stones are everywhere in our daily life, and the marble is the most used natural stone from floors to walls, pathways to countertops. These natural stones are adding luxurious beauty to our lives with their elegance designs. As you know, beauty brings some responsibility with it. In this case taking good care of your marble surface is important in order to keep them looking good. Marble seems strong as granite or quartz, but it is not. Don’t worry you can keep your marble surfaces look good with daily usage and without too much care as long as you follow basic rules.
It is important to wipe the spills on marble surfaces right away. Natural stones are porous that will make water and other liquids to stay on the surface. This could cause harder stains if you don’t pay attention and fail to wipe it out. If allowed to sit on an unsealed marble surface even water can leave temporary dark spots in the natural stone’s surface.
Use Cutting boards on your countertops. Using a cutting board on marble countertops is very important to prevent your countertop to soak juices or other liquids.
Also, cooking oil, acidic food and drink can cause chemical etching on the surface of your marble surface. Vinegar, lemon juice, tomato sauce, coffee, wine, etc. are the most known acidic liquids in your kitchen. Soap, bleach, and other detergents could stain marks on your bathroom countertop
Don’t use acidic cleaning products on marble. Acidic products will damage the professional finish and cause the surface of the stone to get spoiled. Watermarks and surface stains are actually chemical burns those already have etched the surface. These can require stone restoration and it is an expensive way to solve your problem.
Use doormats inside and outside; Dirty shoes carry mud, sand, small stone pieces and dust to your Marble flooring and this causes scratches on the surface in time. Doormats are effective materials to keep dust and harmful dirt out. And using doormats will also save time from cleaning.
