Marble is a natural metamorphic stone mined from quarries all over the world. Each slab is unique with no two alike. It is a soft, porous material that requires a routine sealing process. While it is timeless and beautiful, it is susceptible to scratching, staining, and etching. Marble contains characteristics throughout the slab such as color and pattern variation, fissures or hairline crevices which may look like cracks, water spots or lines, pits and gaps, blemishes or dull spots, and clusters of mineral deposits.
Treat your marble with care, clean with a soft cloth or sponge, clean any spills immediately, and take extra precautions with acidic foods and drinks. Do not clean marble with ammonia, vinegar, or any cleaning agents purchased at your local store. Use warm water and soap or a specific marble cleaner. Do not stand on, set tools or heavy equipment on, use arts and crafts, etc.
Things to avoid: Acidic foods and drinks, red wine, coffee, lemon/lime juice, tomato sauce, abrasive cleaners or sponges, heat, cutting directly on the stone, standing, etc.
