What is the best way to care for Marble?

Sometimes even a quick reminder/crash course can help….

•Wipe up spills when they happen, limiting the time they have to seep into your marble.

•For cleaning, the old rule of thumb is never use anything you would not use on your hands, advises David from The Builder Depot. This means avoiding powdered cleansers, tub and tile cleaners, abrasive pads, or even general all-purpose cleansers that may contain acidic ingredients.

•Mild liquid dishwashing detergent or a similar mild soap and warm water with a non-abrasive towel or sponge are the best for day-to-day cleaning.

•Use a neutral stone cleaner for tougher cleanups.

•Protect the surface by using cutting boards for food preparation, if you have a marble counter top or used our tiles for that purpose.

•Reseal the marble annually or more often if needed, usually in the shower pan. Get a good sealer, an example is DuPont Bullet Proof, has a pretty confident name 🙂
