A Labor of Love
There is no question that marble has superior splendor, but it also comes with maintenance. There are things you can do to reduce the pressure of maintaining marble. First off, if you decide to install a marble countertop in your St. Peters home, make certain you avoid the polished look. If you have your marble honed, it will give it a more matted look, without reducing the vibrancy. When honed, your marble countertop will hide scratches and even disguise etching. If you like the crisp look of polished marble, you will need to take precautions not to mar the surface. You can reduce the risk of scratching by always using hot pads. Never drag metal objects across the surface. This includes heavy jewelry and belt buckles.
You will also want to keep your sealant current. Since marble is porous, a sealant will keep the porous closed and reduce the risk of stains. There are two types of sealant for your marble, one is an oil sealant that penetrates deep into the stone, and the other is a surface sealer that protects the surface of the stone. You can reduce the risk of stains and etching if you keep your marble countertop sealed up tight. Another thing you will want to do is keep your countertops clean. If anything spills, don’t wait, clean it up immediately. Marble can etch if it comes into prolonged contact with acid. If you want to cut lemons, oranges, or other acid foods, make certain to use a butcher’s block. A bit of care and maintenance can keep your marble looking its best and protect its supreme beauty.
