Marble is a natural stone that is characterized by its beautiful vein-like patterning and wide range of colors.  It has been a favorite among builders for thousands of years and is still popular in homes today.  One of the best ways to keep your marble looking great is to properly care for it and maintain it correctly.

While certainly beautiful and sophisticated, marble is softer and more porous than granite.  This means that homeowners must take special care to ensure that their marble surfaces remain in top condition.  There are some things that homeowners can do to ensure that their marble stays attractive.

  • •  Clean up spills as soon as possible to prevent damage to your marble surface
  • •  Use coasters under glasses
  • •  Use pads under hot dishes and cookware
  • •  Never use abrasive cleaners because they will scratch the surface
  • •  Use cleaners especially formulated for marble
  • •  Always dry marble to prevent water spots

When cared for properly, a marble countertop or surface will last for many years to come.  It is highly resistant to scratches, cracks, and breakage.  Because marble is available in so many colors, it is easily incorporated into any kitchen or bathroom design.  Marble instantly adds elegance and high-end appeal to any room in your home.
