Marble Care and Cleaning

Marble is in high demand and is a beautiful addition to your home. But, natural stone requires a different level of care than other products and should be treated carefully to maintain its look. Whether you are caring for marble counter tops or flooring, keep in mind the following in your maintenance plan.

 

For Counter Tops

For general care,

  • Do remember to use coasters for your glasses, especially if your drink is citrus or alcohol. Acidic drinks will cause more damage than other liquids, so be especially cautious with those liquids around your marble.
  • Do remember to use a hot pad under items right from the oven or stove.
  • Do remember to use placemats or trivets under items that may scratch your surface, such as ceramics and silver.

For Flooring

For safety and general care,

  • Do place runners right inside all entrances to prevent slipping.
  • Do use mats outside of all entrances for guests to dry their shoes.
  • Mop as necessary (more applicable for commercial buildings) to remove snow, ice, and water.

Cleaning Marble

  • Do remember to dust mop often.
  • Do use mild detergents or cleaning products specific for the marble and finish you have.
  • Do clean spills immediately and be sure to dry thoroughly.
  • Do protect floors and counter tops from scratches with rugs, runners, coasters, or placemats.
  • Do NOT use acidic cleaning agents such as vinegar or lemon juice when cleaning natural stone. The acids are corrosive and can cause unnecessary wear on your marble.
  • Do vacuum, but make sure your vacuum has all working parts and no worn pieces that may scratch the surface of the stone.

Maintaining

Sealing is the best way to add an additional level of protection to your natural stone. There are a variety of sealants, and you must consider the color of the stone as well as the condition of it before choosing a sealant. Consult a natural stone specialist to help you determine if and how you should seal your marble to maintain the aesthetics and the life of your stone.

Natural stone is a great addition to your home, but can be a costly investment. So, when you make the decision to add stone to your home, you want to make sure you read the warranty and get the specific instructions from your manufacturer so you can prolong the beauty of your piece.
