You’re Guide to Marble Countertops
Marble is synonymous with luxury and elegance and is an essential element of most people’s dream home, especially when planning their ideal kitchen benchtops and bathroom baths and basins. The other thing that marble is well known for though is the horror stories of stains and marks thanks to spills and accidents. In fact every potential marble owner wants to know one thing: how do I stop my marble from staining?
While marble is undoubtedly the Rolls Royce of stone surfaces (beautiful but high maintenance), it’s also a very porous stone and is susceptible to water stains, bumps, and scratches. All of these are found in abundance in most kitchens and bathrooms. And unless you plan on banning cooking in your kitchen and never showering in your bathroom this is going to be a problem.
So how do your friends with marble installed in their houses avoid ruining these lovely surfaces? We’ve all cringed at someone with a perfect kitchen benchtop as they fearlously chop onions on it. Hosting parties, rowdy children, nothing seems to phase them.
When it comes to keeping stone surfaces (like kitchen benchtops and outdoor stone entertainment areas) looking as new as the day you installed them, you need to make sure you seal them properly.
Sealing a stone surface properly involves applying an invisible coating to the marble surface. This fills in the pores of the stone and any fluid spilled on this area in the future will be repelled and can be wiped away with a cloth. Done right, this can provide you with years and years of use.
When it comes to a surface as fragile as marble, sealing the surface yourself is not recommended. The area needs to be cleaned and polished first before being sealed. Thus getting a professional in to do the job is a necessity, and there’s no better stone restorer than Sydney Stone Restoration. These experts in restoring, polishing, sealing, cleaning and repairing marble are available for advice anytime.
The home of your dreams can still include marble – as long as you trust the right people with the job. Contact Sydney Stone Restoration today.
