Marble Care Tips for Every Day Use

Care of marble surfaces – When marble is first installed, it should be sealed along with the grout as soon as the grout has had time to cure, usually 3 – 7 days depending on the grout manufacturer. Failure to do this will allow the soiling and staining.  Some contractors may not return to seal their work as they should, but even if they do, sealing is a regular part of maintenance that will cause many problems if neglected.

Marble is very porous specially older or honed marble.  It may require several coats of sealer or combination of water based sealer followed by an oil based sealer for effectively sealing the marble.

Use a neutral natural stone cleaning product for the daily cleaning of your marble floor, marble counter top or marble shower.

Use felt pads on objects place on top of your marble surfaces to avoid scratches.
