Marble

The Don'ts


Staining
  • Coasters and placemats should be used to prevent staining for all drinking glasses or dishes’, including water glasses as marble is susceptible to all types of stains including water rings. Thus, Avoid leaving any spilled substances on marble for any period of time to reduce staining (including juices, alcoholic beverages, oils, greases, cosmetics, and standing water).

  • Marble is sealed with penetrating sealer to help prevent the absorption of stains into the stone. Therefore it is recommended that marble be resealed periodically with a penetrating stone sealer on all horizontal surfaces.

  • Do not use chemical products for cleaning such as acid, Jif or window cleaner stainless cleaner on your new benchtop as this can cause a scum build up eventually taking way the high gloss finish that granite & marble achieves.

  • Marble is a calcareous stones and is acid sensitive. Calcareous stones are readily dissolved in acid; therefore acidic products, such as lemon or tomato juices should not be used on marble. These will cause the stone to etch – the surface finish will dull and change texture. Wiping spills immediately and taking caution to use only cleansers specified for stone will help avoid etching your marble.
