Marble is an extraordinary and durable material used by man for thousands of years in history, from Ancient Egypt to the Greek and Roman Empire; despite the passage of time, we can still see the beauty of their monumental marble works. Today, natural stone is used in luxury projects such as countertops, tables, floors, bathtubs and other applications. While this material is easy to clean and has a high level of strength, it requires constant maintenance and prevention from accidental damage.
The ideal method for cleaning marble is the use of soap and water, while descale and acid products that damage the polishing of the marble are not allowed. Therefore, mechanical cleaning is the recommended one, and can be obtained with a sponge (also rough or yucky side of the sponge to shine the marble); it is essential to choose a non-abrasive, delicate and pH neutral soap, clean the marble surfaces with a damp cloth, then rinse and dry quickly. Another very effective product for removing coffee and wine stains from marble surfaces is hydrogen peroxide, which has both a disinfectant and a whitening action.
Marbles, especially white marbles, can lose their shiny appearance and turn yellow over time, due to frequent contact with grease and oil. On the market there are also specific polishing kits to manually revive the marble; for more information, you can contact our technical office who will indicate the correct use of the products in the kit.
